PREVENT BOOK LAUNCH -APRIL '11

PREVENT IS A BOOK WHICH ATTEMPTS TO ADDRESS THE GROWING THREAT OF DIABETES AND HOW TO MANAGE IT

An eminent panel from across India, comprising renowned diabetologists, cardiologists, nephrologists, neurologists and retinologists, under the chairmanship of Padmashri Prof. Anoop Misra, Executive Chairman, Fortis C-DOC Centre of Excellence for Diabetes, Metabolic Diseases & Endocrinology, New Delhi), endeavoured to put in evidence and practical experience to come up a book. “Prevent”-Diabetes & Complications in India: Perspective & Treatment Options”. The book was launched by Panacea Biotec, one of the largest biotechnology companies in India.

Taking note of the alarming rate at which prevalence and incidence of diabetes in India is increasing, it is a must read for every individual who wants to control diabetes and prolong the sweetness of this gifted life.

It is a book which attempts to address managing diabetes and complications from Indian perspective. In view of the fact that we are genetically more conducive to develop diabetes and complications, there are various factors which contribute to compounding the patients’ misery like-lack of awareness, late diagnosis, inadequate management and no concrete guidance to manage Indian diabetics.

The session focussed on various issues related to diabetes like diabetic retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nephropathy, diabetes & kidney, diabetes and heart and diabetes and skin diseases. The acute complications of diabetes are hypoglycemia, obesity, amputation caused due to diabetes, heart failure and many more. The preventive methods were also discussed.

Nearly 51 million Indians are suffering from diabetes at present. Prevent is a step towards managing diabetes with the aim of proper diagnosis, preventive methods and management of the complications in Indian embodiment. Speaking on the occasion, Dr Subhankar Chowdhury, professor and head of endocrinology IPGME&R and SSKM Hospital, said “India has a dubious distinction of being home to highest number of diabetic and IHD patients.”

NIP DIABETES - 12 NOV '10

“NUTRITION EMPOWERMENT FOR PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT OF DIABETES (NIP-DIABETES)”

“National Diabetes, Obesity and Cholesterol Foundation (N-DOC)” in collaboration with Nestle India, with support from Chronic Care Foundation (CCF), South Delhi Medical Association (SDMA) and General Physicians Forum under the leadership of Prof. Anoop Misra organized a conference entitled “Nutrition Empowerment for Prevention and Management of Diabetes (NIP-DIABETES)”.on 12 November, 2010 at New Delhi

Key Objectives of the Conference:

  • To highlight the role of nutrition in prevention and management of diabetes.
  • To discuss new research findings pertaining to diabetes and nutrition.
  • To discuss critical issues related to nutrition: role of trans fatty acids, fiber, different types of diets, glycemic index and glycemic load in diabetes.
  • To emphasize on healthy cooking and demonstrate healthy recipes.
  • To discuss the steps involved in dietary, exercise and medical prescription of diabetic patients.

On the occasion, Prof. Anoop Misra, President, N-DOC, said: “The metabolism of Indians is inherently abnormal, conducive to development of diabetes and cholesterol disorders. Simple shift in diets, choosing low glycemic index foods with high fibre and omega-3 fatty acids, could tilt metabolism in such a manner that blood sugar and cholesterol get metabolized more efficiently. The message of this conference is that, for every Indian, starting from childhood, correct diets and physical activity should be at the top of daily agenda.”
