ARE YOU IGNORANT OF YOUR DIABETIC STATUS?


Nowadays, you get a smartphone in your hand everything else gets conveniently eased out of your way. RIP physical activity!!

Patients are becoming younger and younger!!

We continue to see our children growing up, more inclined towards a sedentary lifestyle.

There is considerable decrease in the age among patients when they are diagnosed and this is major cause for concern.

Diseases that used to show up around the age of 50 are setting in when you are in your 20s and 30s.

According to World Health Statistics report, 11.1% of adult male population and 10.8% of female population have high fasting blood glucose levels in India.


Yes, Google is really powerful. You type in the question “Is there a God?” and it tells you, “THERE IS NOW.” And you can fix these disturbing statistics as well.

The 3As

3As - Attitude, Awareness, & Action - could well do the job! 

But, our first obligation is to help a member of our own family before we think of helping others. 

They say a woman becomes a mom when she gets pregnant and a man until he sees his baby for the first time. Today’s parents have much larger role to play in spreading the awareness - yeah, it is your social responsibility. Get your kids out in the open and allow them to play. Enjoy the power your babies and proclaim that you are their proud parents.  



Kids also have every right to come and tell you “I didn’t mean to gain weight, it just happened to me.” if you continue to feed them with all junk/oily food. They are spending more time holding the refrigerator door open looking for answers. Let it not be a diet plan for them that contains 7 cheat days a week. 

Help your child learn healthy eating habits. Childhood is the best time to learn. Allow them to design the right recipes for a better future. 

Health needs to be an individual subject owned by each one of us and it’s for our own benefit!

WHY STRESS SHOULD BE ONE OF THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS?

Did you know that 85% of the stuff that we worry about never actually happens! Yet, most of us would have felt that we handled the outcome better than we thought we would even when they were a reality.

A study carried out by GfK suggested that money, self-pressure and lack of sleep are the three major triggers of stress in people’s daily lives across the globe. Out of 10 participants, 3 of them said that the amount of money they have to live on is their leading cause of stress. As people get older, health issues also develop into a major stress factor.

There were times when people just ate food for everything was real, but today probably that may not be the case. We all tend to avoid fats; especially if you are someone on a diet. There is a general misconception that "fats are unhealthy” or "fats make you fat,” which is simply not the case.
