India represents 49% of the world’s total number of diabetes patients, with an estimated more than 72 million cases, which are expected to get doubled by 2025. Keeping a check on the staggering numbers, the World Diabetes Day is observed every year on 14th November, with an aim to increase awareness about the deadly condition.
Although, with economic development and increase in household incomes, there might have been an improvement in the standard of living, due to substitution of cereal-based traditional diets with highly processed foods has also increased the risks of severe medical conditions like heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
While there are numerous health issues that India is battling with, diabetes is one of the most concerning ones. It is a condition, which is caused by the body’s inability to regulate insulin levels. This medical condition can also lead to organ failure and tissue damage in extreme conditions. It is also a leading cause of blindness, amputation, heart disease, kidney failure and early death, which makes it important to diagnose diabetes at an early stage.
In the wake of widening grip of this disease, AMRI Hospital, Kolkata, has come up with a number of robust initiatives to create awareness around it. As part of this endeavour, urging people to take charge of their health and to promote healthy lifestyle, AMRI Hospitals is offering an exclusive diabetes check-up package at a cost effective price of Rs 999.
“With a vision to create a world where diabetes can do no harm, we should provide an environment to patients where they feel safe. It is important for people to realize that with today’s fast and stressful life they should also be aware about the symptoms and causes of diabetes. Our advice is that after experiencing any signs of diabetes, patients should immediately consult a doctor and switch to a healthier lifestyle,” said one of the experts at AMRI Hospitals.
“Although, there is no cure for diabetes and it majorly depends on doctors, even making slight changes in your lifestyle habits and increasing physical activities can reduce the risks of falling prey to this disease,” he added.
Over the past years, AMRI Hospitals has been keeping up with its history of stepping forward and spreading awareness around severe health conditions through their regular check-ups and health packages. They understand the benefits of cost-effective medical facilities, which also include guiding individuals towards making better life choices.
