Mathura, April 6, 2016: Ahead of World Health Day which falls on April 7, Nayati multi super speciality hospital, Mathura announced organising a free health checkup camp for the community on April 7 & 8, 2016. The main goal of this year’s World Health Day campaign is to increase the awareness about the rising incidence of diabetes and its consequences hence the camp is focused on prevention and detection of diabetes.
The check-up includes, free consultation by the clinicians from internal medicine, cardiology, nephrology and physiotherapy; free random blood sugar & ECG; and a 25% discount on CBC, Lipid Profile, HB 1 AC,LFT, Urine Routine Urine ACR and KFT. ECHO screening will also be available at a special discounted rate of INR 750. Members of the community are welcome to make full use of this opportunity in large numbers.
As a part of the event, Dr Jyoti Goyal, Head, Internal Medicine will address the community on the grave situation of diabetes in India and advice on the prevention and leading a healthy life. The session will be held twice daily at 10 am and 2 pm. In addition, Nayati dietician will advise patients on the special diet that should be followed to control diabetes.
Nayati Healthcare Chairperson Niira Radia said “India is grappling with lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, stroke, obesity and diabetes and the incidence of diabetes are exorbitantly high in this region. It is time we take concerted action to prevent and treat this potentially fatal disease which has reached epidemic proportions. We have seen that more than 70% of the cases coming to the medical OPD are diabetic. We are planning to create a specialized diabetic clinic in the hospital soon to provide complete holistic diabetic care to our patients. This World Health Day lets beat together the spread of this preventable epidemic.”
“We are organizing a free Health Check-up and special discounts on certain investigative tests for diabetes. Through this initiative we intend to increase awareness about this growing epidemic and urge the communities to adopt healthy living“ she further added.
Dr. Jyoti Goyal, Head of Dept., Internal Medicine stated “Diabetes in India has become an exorbitantly growing large public health problem. Sedentary lifestyles coupled with sugary, salty and fatty diets rich in refined carbohydrates are driving the epidemic, which in the region affects primarily those in their productive prime. Managing diabetes needs a holistic approach – that not only manages diabetes efficiently but also prevents the complications of the disease. “
World Health Day this year focuses on diabetes and calls for scaling up efforts to prevent, care for and detect the disease to arrest the global epidemic which is hitting the low and middle income countries the most. Nearly 90 per cent of all diabetes cases are of Type 2 diabetes, largely the result of excess bodyweight and physical inactivity. Type 2 Diabetes is both preventable and treatable if detected early and, if not properly managed, the disease causes serious damage to every major organ in the body, resulting in heart attack, stroke, blindness , kidney and nerve damage.
