New Delhi [India], Nov 12 (NewsVoir): To promote the idea of healthy living, and spread awareness about the cause, symptoms and remedies of Diabetes, DLF Gardencity organized a special health check up camp on 11th November, Sunday ahead of World Diabetes Day, at the premises of New Town Heights, Sector 90. Dr. Gayatri and Dietitian Pooja Yadav from Rockland Hospital were present to carry out the check-ups and give health related tips and solutions to the residents.
Residents from various condominiums across DLF Gardencity came to participate in the camp. The camp included free check up for BP, Sugar and BMI. Dr. Gayatri and Dr. Pooja Yadav told the residents about the measures to keep the body metabolism in a balanced state and lead a healthy life. The participants also availed coupons worth 50% off on annual packages for Diabetes treatment at Rockland Hospital.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin or both. Patients with high blood sugar typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).
"This was a necessary and a great initiative by DLF Gardencity. We had an informative session with both medical professionals who had advised the diabetic patients with the do's and don'ts and gave us health tips. Health is foremost in everyone's life and we would want DLF Gardencity to organize these health check up camps on regular basis in years ahead," said a resident of DLF Gardencity.
World Diabetes Day (WDD) was created in 1991 by IDF and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. WDD is the world's largest diabetes awareness campaign reaching a global audience of over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. The campaign draws attention to issues of paramount importance to the diabetes world and keeps diabetes firmly in the public and political spotlight. (NewsVoir)
