Thus due to our unhealthy lifestyle we are number 1 in diabetes. You can see on indian streets that very few indians looks physically fit.Indian schools never teach to students the importance of sports and exercise and most of the indians thinks that their final aim is to earn money.

    First of all as a nation we are not the ones with highest incidence rate (%age population affected with a disease). In the current ranking for incidence rates we are at Rank 79, with an incidence rate of ~9%. However if you multiply it with our population it turns out to be a very big number.
    But an incidence rate of ~9% is not less by any means and the cause of all this is mostly the sedentary lifestyle that has come with the modern way of living, accessibility to fast foods and rising cases of obesity.
    Type-2 diabetes as such is a lifestyle disease and is mostly diagnosed in people who are obese and do not have a active lifestyle.
    So along with the billion of dollars and another billion of jobs that the modern day trade has brought to India it has also brought a lot of desk jobs and sedentary lifestyle for Indians and the result is the higher incidence rate for diabetes.
    So grab out your running shoes and start an active life and not Insulin
