Middle East has the highest prevalence of diabetes in the world said Bhalla.

In Mumbai, four diabetes clinics were launched at Kandivili, Vile Parle, Chembur and Tardeo, run in partnership with Sanofi, which owns 20% stake in the venture.

Apollo's Navi Mumbai hospital, which is likely to be ready by December this year, will also house a diabetes clinic.

Sangeeta Reddy, joint managing director, Apollo Hospitals Enterprise and chairperson, Apollo Sugar Clinics, said that the company is also exploring partnerships with hotel and restaurant chains in India to put forward a proposal to include menus with low glycemic index suitable for diabetes patients.
