Abstract

The epidemic of diabetes mellitus affects all populations in both the developed and developing world. However, the distribution of prevalence is not uniform to all populations and societies; prevalence is much higher in certain distinct groups. This paper presents an overview of current issues in the aetiology and management of diabetes mellitus in people within the South Asian community. It also discusses current policy, service initiatives and education approaches, specific to improving the quality of life and health outcomes.
