    Health Insurance for Diabetes

    Some of the most common lifestyle conditions—obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure—are gradually becoming serious health diseases among Indians today. An imbalanced way of living worsened by adulterated consumption is taking a toll on millions of lives every year. An inactive lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, work pressure, and stress give rise to diabetes, hypertension & high BMI. Today, India is home to almost 77 million diabetic patients, the second-highest diabetes population globally. Nearly 30% of adults in India suffer from hypertension, and health experts are worried about the alarmingly high number of people unaware of their condition.

    Without prompt treatment, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension can together damage your body's small blood vessels- thereby increasing the risk of heart strokes.
