Bhopal: (TNA News Network) Are you a diabetic and craving for sweet dishes and rice? If yes, you may do so if your blood sugar is under control and you are being treated by an experienced doctor. Diabetes is a manageable disease. You need to know the disease to manage and lead a normal life. Lack of disease education is a big business opportunity for many.
Renowned endocrinologist Dr. Sachin Chittawar said this while addressing a press conference here on Friday. The press conference was organized to launch Diabetes Awareness Week to mark the upcoming World Diabetes Day and the completion of 100 years of insulin invention. Insulin was discovered by Sir Frederick G Banting, Charles H Best and JJR Macleod at the University of Toronto in 1921 and it was later purified by James B Collip. On 11 January 1922 – insulin was first used to treat a person with diabetes.
Dr. Chittawar said that “Although there’s no cure for type 2 diabetes, studies show remission is possible in many patients. Through diet changes and weight loss, you may be able to reach and hold normal blood sugar levels without medication.”
He further said that diabetes is a “Silent Killer” since it causes a slew of additional problems in patients. As a result, it’s critical to keep diabetes under control in order to avoid the complications that come with it. If diabetes is discovered early, it can be effectively treated. Understanding diabetes and its adverse consequences on the body is critical for improved management of this condition.
Dr. Chittawar suggested that one should go for certain specific checks and tests once a year. These checks help to prevent serious diabetes complications, like problems with your feet, eyes, heart and kidneys.
