Women living with diabetes are subject to social stigma
New Delhi, Nov 13 (ANI): Diabetes, earlier considered a disorder affecting only the rich and affluent, is spreading its wings to include about 70 million people in India today, both in the urban and rural areas. Nearly half of those affected by this condition are women, in a population of 1.21 billion. What further exacerbates this situation is the fact that this condition is the reason for stigmatization of women in the country. Women living with diabetes face many problems both physically and mentally, and often have difficulty in getting married as well. Diabetes can increase the risk of developing several other complications, particularly in women. What is unique about this disease in women is that it affects both the mother and the unborn child. Women often receive less aggressive treatment for conditions related to diabetes than men. The complications and warning signs in women are also often more difficult to diagnose thus delaying treatment and leading to premature mortality. Complications arising out of diabetes such as vaginal yeast infections and thrush, polycystic ovarian syndrome, sexual dysfunction, and urinary tract infections can make this problem even worse. There is also an urgent need to increase awareness about the condition through the media, seminars, posters, group discussions, and education.
