~ Kauvery Hospital is all
set to fight Diabetes at their Hosur unit ~
November, 2018: Kauvery Hospital announces
the launch of their two-day awareness campaign, 'Dishoom Dishoom Diabetes' which will be held on the 24th and 25th of
November, 2018 at Sishya School in Hosur. This is an initiative to spread
awareness on the various aspects of diabetes and to bridge the knowledge gap by
educating people about the complications associated with the disease.
India is among the top three countries with an
ever- growing diabetic population, according to a recent study published by
Lancet Global Health. The number of people with diabetes in the country has
increased from 26 million in 1990 to 65 million in 2016, with the prevalence
increasing from 5.5% to 7.7% over this period. The highest prevalence was in
Tamil Nadu (13.1%) followed by Kerala, Delhi, Punjab, Goa and Karnataka. The
study also shed light that 47% of the tested population was unware till the
time they were tested for the disease.
Dr. S. Vijayabaskaran, Executive
Director and Unit Head of Kauvery Hospital Hosur said, "It
is a concern today that diabetes is moving from older people to the middle aged
and young adults, and even to adolescents and children. As it takes only a few
years to develop complications from diabetes, when these young adults become
middle aged, they have the risk of developing several other complications in
the eye, kidney, nerve, heart, and other ailments. This two-day long campaign will cover a large amount of important
information to help people understand diabetes better. Over the years, we have
seen a huge surge in the number of patients with diabetes and associated
conditions who come to our hospital for treatment. As doctors, it is our
responsibility to continuously educate and raise awareness on the treatment and
management of this condition."
'Dishoom Dishoom Diabetes' is aimed at reaching out to all and create better awareness about health
conditions associated with diabetes, and also discuss best treatment for
diabetes management. The focus of the campaign is diabetes prevention,
controlling the disease and getting required access to healthcare services. The
campaign also draws attention to the fact that other fields of medicine like
Ophthalmology, Neurology, Nephrology and Cardiology are associated with
Diabetology. It is going to be a two-day interactive event where people can
engage with expert specialists from Kauvery Hospital and get all their doubts
clarified. There will be educative talk sessions by the specialists, and gift coupons
will be given away for free screenings and check-ups for the various activities
planned during the campaign.
