Diabetes is the greatest challenging disease of this century. World Diabetes Day of this year has just passed with some ripples somewhere in the world. In spite of the awareness programs, the disease is spreading all over the world by leaps and bounds. World Health Organization(WHO) may warn in the loudest voice that more than 346 million people worldwide have diabetes and this number may double or triple in the next few decades. But the world, mesmerized by the strong spells of commercialism, is not going to listen or be serious about the monstrous disease diabetes. Globalized commercialism is adding more and more consumers to the addiction of fast food and sedentary lifestyle. Diabetes is growing globally as a major threat to public health and world economy.

Here are ten points that may help the world to prevent the disease and to face the challenge of its epidemic growth.
