Diabetes mellitus is a chronic medical condition in which a person’s sugar level rises above the
normal. This disease has become quite prevalent worldwide. In the year 2018, more than 500
million people were suffering from diabetes mellitus type-2 (DM2) worldwide. In 2010, an
estimated seven million cases of diabetes were found in Africa. This figure was predicted to rise
to over 18 million by the year 2030.

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic medical condition in which a person’s sugar level rises above the
normal. This disease has become quite prevalent worldwide. In the year 2018, more than 500
million people were suffering from diabetes mellitus type-2 (DM2) worldwide. In 2010, an
estimated seven million cases of diabetes were found in Africa. This figure was predicted to rise
to over 18 million by the year 2030. In Kenya, an estimated 1.2 million Kenyans suffer from the
disease. This has been projected to rise to 1.5 million by the year 2025. Although DM2 is
determined primarily by genes and lifestyle, it has been strongly linked to dietary patterns.
However data linking DM2 and Glycemic index (GI) in Kenya remain scarce. Generally, foods
with high GI are more likely to lead to a high prevalence of DM2 than foods with low GI. Some
studies done in Kenya have indicated relationship between local diets and diabetes. However
these studies were hospital-based and not community-based and they did not identify the GI of
locally consumed foods and link with DM2.
