Kokilaben hospital joins BD in safe diabetes management campaign

Mumbai: The city-based Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital (KDAH) joined a campaign to promote safe diabetes management.

The Go Green Stay FIT campaign has been launched by BD India, a medical technology firm.

"We have joined hands with leading medical technology company BD, pledging to promote highest patient safety standards in diabetes management, including safe injection practices and safe disposal of insulin syringes and needles," KDAH said in a statement here.

The objective is to help patients initiating insulin achieve improved clinical outcomes with a more comfortable injection experience, it said.

Over 200 million insulin delivery devices are generated in India each year and most of them disposed off in unsafe circumstances. This has given rise to the need for green diabetes management, the statement said.

Nearly 9.6 crore vials, cartridges and pre fills are consumed every year, adding to the burden of glass and plastic on the environment.

Net amount of plastic generated from insulin syringes alone each year is 6,00,000 kg besides plastic generated from more than 40 million pen needles, it added.

    In July of 2015, it was discovered that I got type 2 diabetes. By the end of the July month, I was given a prescription for the Metformin. I stated with the ADA diet and followed it completely for several weeks but was unable to get my blood sugar below 140. Without results to how for my hard work, I really panicked and called my doctor. His response? Deal with it yourself. I started to feel that something wasn’t right and do my own research. Then I found Rachel’s great blog (google ” HOW I FREED MYSELF FROM THE DIABETES ” ) . I read it from cover to cover and I started with the diet and by the next morning, my blood sugar was 100. Since then, I get a fasting reading between the mid 70s and 80s. My doctor was very surprised at the results that, the next week, he took me off the Metformin drug. I lost 30 pounds in my first month and lost more than 6 inches off my waist and I’m able to work out twice a day while still having lots of energy. The truth is that we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods
