I know that many of the members are very well read,highly qualified and exceptionally intelligent,still some thing is missing.There are many who are or were on the top in their respective fields ,they fully understand that it the foundation which is the most important part of any building,then why jump to super structure,which can be modified in different ways.Every one very clearly knows that by ignoring foundation,you can not expect any building to be stable.This also stands true for diabetes or for that matter everything.

I know we Indians are all drawing room debaters and when it comes to face an audience we are very shy and retract in a corner.
The whole purpose of exercise was only to bring out each ones perception about the disease with their own personal experience and I am sure no amount of web references will even begin to match.It will be our own by our own people.Just imagine the vast plethora of varied experience.Let thousand flowers bloom.
I would have been delighted if some one wrote that "Diebetes is a disease in which sugar in blood remains elevated.This raised bs causes many symptoms and over a period of time damages kidney,eyes,nerve tissues and is associated with heart and brain problems.It would have been a bonus if some one added what they felt prior to being diagnosed as a diabetic.

Sathi hath badhana,ek Akela thakk jayega mil ker hath badhana.
Thanks every body.
