Comorbidity and mortality are high among people with type-2 diabetes. Globally, diabetes is a major health issue, with a growing number of patients at risk of complications. A change in lifestyle is leading to an increase in diabetes prevalence. International Diabetic Federations (IDF) reports rank diabetes fourth among leading causes of death. Young adults are more likely to develop type-2 diabetes in Asia, where prevalence is on the rise. During the data collection period, most of the responses opined that diabetes is the mother of all the health related diseases. Concerning the relevance of the topic, we tried to focus the gap areas which are identified during the literature review. They are health related, psychological, and economic challenges which are encountered by the diabetic patients among the investor community in India. To address this issue, we tried to decode these challenges in the study areas. For this purpose, 187 responses were collected over six months by adopting snow ball sampling. This includes urban, rural, and semi-urban areas of Odisha. 37 variables were initially identified but finally after core group discussion and pilot study, the same being restricted to 30 only. This includes 13 for the health related sub variables, 11 for psychological variables, and rest were economic variables. For data analysis, perception score method and rank method used. The findings of the study are in case of health related challenges, sexual life, kidney issues, and foot ulcer are the major concern among the respondents. For the psychological challenges, feeling of more dependency on others, adverse comments of friends and relatives, depression, and anger are the main challenges. Similarly, for the economic challenges meeting medicine charges, consultation fees, and cost of healthy food are the major challenges.
