Over 60 percent of Indians do not have their diabetes under control. Only 1 in 3 Indians with diabetes have an acceptable level of blood sugar. More so, 50 percent of those who have blood pressure with diabetes do not have their blood pressure under control. Almost 6 out of 10 who have diabetes and cholesterol are not able to control their cholesterol either. This according to a study carried out by the ICMR.
