Common Myths Around Diabetes
Diabetes is commonly known as “Sugar” in many parts of India. As the name suggests, people connect blood glucose (sugar) with the practice of having sugar/sweets. However, limiting your sugar intake isn’t enough to control your diabetes. Similarly, Gharelu Nuskhe (Home remedies) for diabetes are common in our country.
Some of the myths that caught our attention are:
- Only elderly people get diabetes.
- Soaking feet in water can help control blood sugar.
- Diabetes is a result of past sins.
- Diabetes can be cured by herbal treatment.
- Diet and lifestyle changes play little influence in diabetes treatment.
- Normal blood sugar level <200.
