Sedentary lifestyle, rapid urbanization, genetical factor (for type II diabetes, which is more common) and according to some scientists the presence of high pesticide residue in foods and drinking water due to indiscriminate use of pesticides in agriculture are some of the major causes of increased number of diabetes in India and many other countries.

Approximately 10% of urban adult Indian population are diabetic. Although China's population is more than India, India has more diabetics than China, hence India is "diabetic capital of the world", with largest number of diabetes patients

In some urban areas of India as many as 15% of adults are diabetics, which is really alarming. The only way to reduce number of diabetics is adopt healthy lifestyle.
