Dear Roger
I am working in the field of Diabetology at Lucknow for over 20 years and have contributed in my own way. I might be contacted at Id: drshankhdhar@gmail.com.
If you are a journalist, then you should know that the major reason for ignorance is the poor infrastructure of diabetes care in India and the fact that most Indians have to bear all costs of treatment on their own,

Hi RogerMumbai- Welcome to TuD. We hope you like it here. It is sad that India has such a high number of Diabetics. I saw a piece on dLife ( TV program ) about this recently. They have a website, you might want to check, since I don't think you can get the TV program. It is dLife.com. Stop by my page anytime to "talk."
