InDiabetes was started by me, Kritika Singh.

I’m a type 1 diabetic, diagnosed when I was 24 – Which is unusually late for type 1 diabetes (a.k.a. ‘juvenile diabetes’).

I was diagnosed while studying overseas in Australia, and like most people receiving a diabetes diagnosis I was pretty shaken up.

Thankfully, Australia has a number of supportive diabetes organisations and forums. With their help, I was brought up to speed very quickly on what my new diagnosis would mean for me and how to effectively manage my diabetes. And with this new information I was confident I could still live a happy and healthy life, regardless of my disease.

However, when I finished my studies and returned home to India I found it was a very different story.

In India there was much less information available for diabetics. And most of the information I could find wasn’t as clear or easy to follow as the information I’d had in Australia.

I also had trouble finding and connecting with the local Indian diabetic community, which in Australia had been such a great source of support, encouragement, and knowledge.

So, with the help of my husband (David Whitaker), I decided to do what I could to change that.

We would:

  • provide diabetics in India easy access to information that was clear, concise, and helpful.
  • give Indian diabetics the opportunity to share their stories with one another, and connect more with their local diabetic community.
  • help families and carers of people with diabetes in India understand what their loved ones are going through, and how they can support them.

InDiabetes is our attempt to do that.

I hope it does, and you find what you’re looking for. If you don’t, let us know, and we’ll see what we can do.
