CK Birla Hospitals BMB observed World Diabetes Day with a free Random Blood Sugar, BMI & Blood Pressure check-up. Held in the BMB lobby, this activity in which over 50 people participated, helped create awareness about Diabetes.
“Diabetes can cause damage to the blood vessels which can lead to the development of diseases like coronary heart disease, stroke and vascular dementia. Risk of heart attacks and strokes are up to three times higher in people with diabetes. Hence, it is important to maintain blood pressure through medication and keep your body fit with regular physical activities combined with some weight loss training.” says Dr. AnjanSiotia (Diabetes and Heart) Consultant Intervention Cardiologist, CK Birla Hospitals BMB.
