As the largest Indian insulins company, Biocon has been addressing the large need for affordable Insulin therapy in India through our generic recombinant human Insulin, analogs and easy-to-use devices.
Beyond enhancing access to cost-effective and differentiated therapies, Biocon proactively undertakes patient-centric initiatives for disease awareness, prevention and management.
These initiatives are aimed at creating greater diabetes awareness and sensitizing people with diabetes on life style modifications that could help them lead healthier and happier lives.
We believe disease prevention, detection and management is critical as diabetes imposes a huge economic burden on patients, which gets magnified further as it can lead to several related complications of the heart, kidneys, eyes and feet.
Diabetes is a global epidemic and the number of people with diabetes in India is growing at an alarming rate. India is among the top three countries in the number of people with diabetes. Currently, there are over 70 million people with diabetes in India, making it the second largest population in the world, and this number is expected to cross the 100 million mark by 2030.
Poor eating habits, lack of exercise and stress are driving a large number of young people towards pre-diabetes and diabetes in India today. Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing Type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and some cancers.
As a compassionate, caring and responsible company, Biocon is bringing together various stakeholders, through technology and traditional means, in this fight against diabetes. Through our ‘Winning With Diabetes’ program, we aim to empower people with diabetes with the tools to better manage their disease and improve their quality of life.
As a part of the ‘Winning With Diabetes’ program, Biocon will conduct 2 interactive webinars on November 23rd and November 28th with a leading Nutritionist and a Diabetologist on “Ideal Nutrition & Diet in Diabetes” and “Diabetes Myths and Facts” respectively to address public queries related to diet and diabetes management.
The webinar will provide an ideal platform for creating awareness and breaking the myths that the common man may have related to diabetes.
