Diabetes is termed as silent killer as during the initial phase it does not have noticeable symptoms and often by the time it is detected it can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, or nerves and may lead to severe complications. From our data of testing of about 10000 rural patients from Feb. 2012 to May 2012 it was very surprising to find that more than 20 % of this rural population had diabetes.
