Abstract

Diabetes was, is and will be a major cause of concern in the healthcare sector. The control of diabetes has been a mission since a long time all over the world. The use of the glucometer has made life easier for the common man. However the lack of knowledge regarding the disposal of the glucose strips and needles has also become a matter of concern.

In similar studies, improper disposal of sharps was found to be as high as 80-90% [2,3]. A study from Pakistan showed that more than 90% patients discarded them into the household bin [4]. According to the Indian Council of Medical Research, India Diabetes study circulated in 2011, revealed that about 62.4 million people in India were diabetics [5].
