Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. Expressing concern over the fast spreading of diabetes in rural areas also, Himachal Pradesh Health Minister Thakur Singh said that people settled in state's remote areas are also becoming diabetic and inhabitants of the country's highest villages Hikkim and Komik in the Spiti Valley have also been diagnosed with it.

Singh said it was disturbing that the state, despite being agrarian and having hilly terrain, was seeing a trend of shift of diabetes base to a younger age and women as well. He said the diabetes was spreading rapidly and tribal areas were not an exception in reporting such cases.
