  Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition which has reached epidemic proportions throughout the world. According to World Health Organization, in India in the year 2000 there were 31,705,000 diabetics and it is estimated to double by the year 2030. The two basic approaches to keep Diabetes under control are Lifestyle modification and pharmacological approach. Diabetes requires a lifelong management plan, and people with diabetes have a central role in this plan. Lifestyle modifications provide an opportunity for diabetics to take charge of their health.
