The pharmaceutical industry is witnessing a 25 per cent growth in overall diabetes and 15 per cent in the insulin segment, Mr Aggarwal said.

With the increasing rate of diabetes patients in India we foresee a skill gap for diabetes educators, diabetes counsellors and obesity counsellors.

The monumental increase in the number of people suffering from diabetes shows us that we need more Diabetes Educators in the healthcare industry.
