Zindagi na milegi dobara

WHO projects that diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of death in 2030. One should keep a check on the lifestyle disorder by modifying food habits, making exercise as part of life, reducing the intake of junk food and adopting relaxation techniques life to keep stress at bay.
It is unfortunate that the youth in particular are falling prey to alcoholism and tobacco abuse. There is need to organise awareness programmes at educational institutions on the evils of consumption of alcohol and tobacco. We need to rethink our daily lives — to eat healthily, be physically active and avoid excessive weight gain. Safety in food is also a resultant of the integrity and strictness of those who impose the rules. Our researchers have spent decades trying to replace the insulin-producing pancreatic cells, called beta cells, that are lost in diabetes. For a diabetic patient, tight blood sugar control is highly important over time. Diabetes is a serious disease, and should not be self medicated. When there is overwhelming scientific evidence of the number of new diabetic patients rising year by year in our country, India has so far been in research activities and achieved a lot of success. Healthy food habits and regular exercise can surely delay the onset of the disease; they can also go a long way in preventing it.
Diabetes is a chronic condition in which the body either does not make enough insulin to break down the sugar in food or uses insulin inefficiently. It can cause early death or serious complications like blindness, stroke, kidney disease, amputation and heart disease. Prevention is better than cure. Eat healthy, Stay healthy. One must remember “zindagi na milegi dobara.”
