Introduction: Type 2 Diabetes is a lifestyle related disease and a major risk factor for Cardio Vascular Diseases (CVDs).
Objectives: To estimate the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes and Prediabetes among adults (aged 30 years and above) residing in Neyyattinkara taluk of South Kerala and to identify the diabetes Case Detection Rates across different age groups. Whereas rest of India is still grappling with communicable diseases and malnourishment, the state of Kerala stands out, with non-communicable diseases (NCDs) emerging as a major public health challenge. To estimate the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes and Prediabetes among adults (aged 30 years and above) residing in Neyyattinkara taluk of South Kerala. To study the fasting plasma glucose levels as an indicator of diabetes control in the community. Data Collection Tools: Structured questionnaire and Blood Sugar examination using Glucometer (DiabeCHECK- Jitron). Ethical clearance was obtained from Institutional Ethical Committee, Trivandrum Medical College.
Diabetes Case Detection Rates across different age groups were examined and was highest (76%) between 60 and 69 years.
81 (18%) persons had blood sugar values above 125 mg%.  Of these 42 were already diagnosed and was on treatment.
A national study9 to determine the prevalence of Diabetes and Prediabetes in India done in three states (Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Jharkhand) and one union territory (Chandigarh) showed that the weighted prevalence of Diabetes was 10.4% in Tamil Nadu, 8. Studies from Kerala  also emphasized the need for life style modifications and community based programmes for early detection and preventive measures.1, 12  Diabetes Case Detection Rate in the present study was 50% in persons less than 50 years of age and more than 75% above the age of 50 years.
Prediabetes is a significant risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes, micro vascular, and macro vascular disease. In this article, I’d like to share the story of another one of my diabetic clients, Larry Gershon, who reversed type 2 diabetes following my evidence-based whole foods nutrition and fitness coaching program.  Larry has an amazing story, and has made an incredible turn around by adopting powerful and extremely effective lifestyle habits. In January of 2013 after battling intense cold and flu-like symptoms, Larry checked himself into the urgent care unit at the local medical center.  The doctors took a chest X-ray as a safeguard against pneumonia, which instead revealed a tumor on his left lung.
Larry began chemotherapy immediately.  His chemo infusions occurred on Tuesdays, three weeks apart.
Over the next 3 months of chemotherapy, sleep was his official weekend activity following chemotherapy infusions. His consultation with the medical center nutritionist was less than inspiring, to say the least. To make matters worse, Larry was instructed not to worry about controlling diabetes in the short term.  He recounted a conversation with the nutritionist at the 1-on-1 appointment.


At that point, Larry became irate.  He and his wife were discouraged, upset, and felt that the information being provided was not helping them understand what to do.
I encouraged him to make a smoothie after exercising, to use it as energy recovery formula.  Immediately, he began exercising at a high intensity level for an hour or two, prior to drinking my shake. His fruit and vegetable smoothie was now a reward for exercising.  And boy was it a tasty reward. Achieving an ideal body weight was the single most powerful weapon that Larry possessed against further health complications.  I told him that if he achieved his ideal body weight, then most of his symptoms would disappear. He no longer takes Hydrochlorthiazide, a diuretic medication that reduces peripheral blood pressure.
Larry met with his doctor in early February of 2014, and decided to stop chemotherapy.  Proliferating cancer cells were no longer detectable.
Now that Larry is fully transformed, I asked him if he could provide others with a few nuggets of wisdom, to give others in need of help some valuable insight.  Here are his recommendations, in no particular order. So there you have it, proof that overcoming a health condition as complicated as type 2 diabetes is possible using a 100% natural approach to diet and exercise.  All it takes is a dedication to succeed, and the willingness to achieve. Watching Larry transform before my eyes is one of the most rewarding processes of my professional life.  Witnessing the positive impact that his turnaround has had on him and his family makes my job worth every minute. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 22, I have spent over a decade learning the fundamentals of nutrition at the doctorate level. That's why I've spent over 10 years developing a rock solid system that can minimize blood glucose variability and insulin resistance. Normal blood sugar levels chart for adults, This simple chart shows target blood sugar levels for before and after meals, after fasting, before exercise, and at bedtime, as well as an a1c target..
Blood sugar – wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. When your “normal” blood sugar isn’t normal (part 1), In the next two articles we’re going to discuss the concept of “normal” blood sugar.
High and low blood sugar levels related to diabetes, When you have diabetes, you may have high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) from time to time..
Hyperglycemia: facts on symptoms, signs and treatment, Hyperglycemia is an abnormally high blood glucose (blood sugar) level. A very limited number of published studies indicate high prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes in the state of Kerala.

His energy level was good on the days following his infusions until late Friday but by Saturday he was exhausted and it was nearly impossible to lift his head off of the pillow on the weekends following his infusions.
Larry found this traditional approach to diabetes nutrition very discouraging.  He was scheduled to take a series of four group classes but he couldn’t get into the classes for 45 days. Packed with essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and water, a fresh and well-crafted smoothie is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. With a proper diet and ongoing exercise, you can reverse type 2 diabetes and live a completely normal life. Don’t ease into a new lifestyle; I think that allows for too much temptation to make lousy excuses. Particularly valuable is the explanation, before starting, of the importance of following the lifestyle and what works well. This study was done in the Neyyattinkara taluk of south Kerala by including coastal, mid land and high land regions to make it representative of the geographical profile of the state.
At first I felt guilty when I chose to eat familiar foods that I knew were inherently unhealthy, but once I realized that those choices were conscious decisions, I started to take full responsibility for when things went wrong.
