This difficult disease, once called adult-onset diabetes, is striking an ever-growing number of adults. Even more alarming, it’s now beginning to show up in teenagers and children. However, medical experts feel that timely detection and right management can go a long way in helping patients lead a normal life.
Diabetes occurs when the body can’t make enough insulin or can’t properly use the insulin it makes. Under normal body circumstances, blood glucose levels are tightly controlled by insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin lowers the blood glucose level. When the blood glucose elevates (for example, after eating food), insulin is released from the pancreas to normalise the glucose level. In patients with diabetes, the absence or insufficient production of insulin causes hyperglycemia.
Diabetes is a chronic medical condition, that is, it can be kerbed at the initial level by introducing lifestyle changes and controlled after its incidence through medicines in early stages and administration of external insulin in advanced stages. But it would not be wrong to say that it cannot be cured completely and lasts a lifetime.
One-Third of Adults with Diabetes Still Do not Know They Have It and therefore can not get the appropriate treatment in due time. That is why we have introduced the Diabetes Checkup Package that offers a comprehensive checkup with diet and lifestyle support.
Our diabetes care package offers a comprehensive checkup involving a specialist consultation, diagnosis, active lifestyle management counsellor and a dietitian to provide you with a holistic multifactorial approach to have a disease free and healthy life
