Diabetes has been existent for centuries causing millions of deaths over the years. People affected with diabetes are also at an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. But, diabetes can be controlled and its complications, overcome. On the occasion of World Diabetes Day, I wanted to share a story of my friend “Rahul” (name changed) who was diagnosed with diabetes five years back; fought bravely and pushed this dreaded disease back.
