Taking into consideration that India is one amongst the top three countries with the highest diabetic population, Paras Global Hospital- Darbhanga has launched a comprehensive diabetes care clinic. India currently has more than 65 million diabetics and Bihar is the third most populated state in India, making it exceptionally susceptible to have a high population of diabetics. Our diet, lifestyle and unawareness associated with food items complicate the situation more.
According to Dr Ajay Kumar Lal Das, Consultant – Internal Medicine& Diabetology, “India is projected to become the diabetes capital of the world. Diabetes is a disease that is associated with co morbidity. Due to the duality of symptoms it is a silent killer and can adversely affect a number of organs of the body. Studies highlight that diabetes affects the kidneys, heart and may also cause joint pain. It is important that diabetes be diagnosed at the right time and comprehensive clinical plans be followed to treat and manage the same.”
Paras Global Hospital- Darbhanga has developed a well detailed clinical and nutritional plan to treat and manage diabetes. The clinic is lead by Internal Medicine Physicians that specialise in endocrine issues and is supported by a team of specialised nutrition experts and physiotherapists.
According to Dr Ajay, “Diabetes will be the world’s seventh largest killer by 2030 unless intense and focused efforts are made by governments, communities and individuals. There are two types of diabetes – type 1 – juvenile diabetes and type 2 – lifestyle associated diabetes. In India Type 2 – Diabetes Milletus is most common. The signs and symptoms that highlight that you are suffering from Diabetes are – Hunger and fatigue, weight loss, excessive urination and thirst, dry mouth and itchy skin along with blurred vision. If you are experiencing any two of the above mentioned, it is best that you consult a diabetes clinic.”
Dietician Ms Nandini highlights,“ Post detection also patients don’t know what to eat and what to avoid. It is important that a detailed food chart be planned for them based on their lifestyle. Diet is an integral part in controlling and managing diabetes. Paras Darbhanga has over the last few months provided consultation and treatment to numerous chronic diabetes patients. Today we have numerous successful cases with controlled diabetes and improved lifestyle to share.”
