Diabetes is a common condition. The progressively increasing number of people with diabetes is worrying. Changes in diet and living conditions are some of the reasons behind the rising diabetic population. Better and easily available diagnostic facilities help us to reach more people with diabetes and help them to fight it. Recently I came across one post on social media which claims that the diabetes is being over-diagnosed because of influence by pharmaceutical companies.This post has tried to sound like a fact based but it is just another conspiracy theory. I felt annoyed with it, because such posts misguide patients and make them feel fooled .
