Welcome to DiabeticMatrimony.com - An Introduction

India has 35 million diabetics and is referred to as the diabetes capital of the world but little has been done to tackle the social fallout of the disease.

Stigma and misconceptions persist. A survey in Delhi shows that: Diabetics still find it difficult to be accepted as a life partner.

What do actor Kamalahasan, cricketer Wasim Akram and VJ Gaurav Kapoor have in common?

Well, all three have Type I diabetes.

Celebrities with Type 1 Diabetes:

Wasim Akram
Former Pakistan Cricketer

Nicole Johnson
Miss America 1999

Gaurav Kapur
Television VJ

Kamal Hassan
Film Actor

Type I diabetes is caused by the destruction of beta cells in the pancreas, which produces insulin. This is different from Type II diabetes, which is linked to a sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits.

DiabeticMatrimony.com aims to provide Services of Matrimony, Awareness about diabetes and a lot of things for people who have diabetes. According to Dr. A. K. Jhingan, Chairperson, DDRC and founder of DiabeticMatrimony.com, there is a fear that diabetes-affected persons cannot have normal and healthy children. In fact, more often than not, diabetic men chose to remain silent about their disease before entering matrimony.

Jhingan says what was most worrisome was the lack of sufficient knowledge about the disease. "The social implications of diabetes for the Indian subcontinent need special attention because of the regionís prevalent culture of arranged marriages where families do not enquire about the prospective bride or groomís genetic history. This is compounded by a lack of awareness on diabetes," he says. The problem - which is especially acute in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh - can only be addressed through a mass movement, focused health campaigns and private and public sector involvement.
