Doctors take part in walk: a step towards creating diabetes awareness ,, ,,,,

The World Diabetes Day is observed on November 14 in order to create awareness related to Diabetes, which is a group of diseases with one thing in common - a problem with insulin, and has reached epidemic proportions. //

As a part of the World Diabetes Day, a walk is being organized in Madurai on November 14. The walk will begin at 7.30 am from IMA hall, Panagal road and end at the Government Rajaji Hospital auditorium. Eminent doctors will be addressing the participants on this occasion.

Eyes, heart and kidneys of diabetic patients are affected if the disease is not controlled. Foot problems and amputations due to diabetes were also increasing.

The control of diabetes and prevention of complications related to the disease involves a team approach with responsibility being shared by the patient and the doctor. The rewards of good diabetic control in terms of improved quality of life and reduced medical expenses are immense and far outweigh the cost of regular sugar testing and medications.

In a press release Global Diabetes Walk said that professors of the Department of Diabetology, Madurai Medical College, members of the Madurai branch of the Diabetes Association of India and Indian Medical Association, doctors of Madurai, members of the Walkers Club and Joggers Club and diabetic patients are participating in this event.

The event is being coordinated and organized by Dr K Kannan, president, Diabetic Association of India, Dr Asirvatham, head of the Department of Diabetology, GRH and Novo Nordisk, business manager, Vasudevan.

The release said that there were 30 million people suffering from diabetes in India and according to WHO, this may reach 57 million by 2025.

Diabetes is becoming increasingly more common in India. All that can be done is to minimise further damage. Hence the cornerstone of preventing diabetic amputations or other diabetic complications is to prevent the development of these complications. It has now been conclusively proved that good control of diabetes can prevent most diabetic complications.

This event, as a part of the World Diabetes Day, is a step towards creating awareness related to diabetes and its management strategies.
