A Little over month back we faced the most familiar dialogue “Mera pyare deshwasiyon...!”  But what followed this cuddly line changed our life! In a matter of minutes I started feeling like an earthworm. Nothing in hand! My purse is full of waste paper!  As it dawned the following days my only worry was how to get money which can be used. 100 rupee note became my new hero! People waiting to see the new avatar of Gandhiji were longer than ever...All banks looked like ration shops or railway ticket booking counters... Overnight the bank fellows who used to pester for deposits and accounts became all the more powerful, authoritative and dominating...

A dream come true moment in the history of Diabetes – “September 28, 2016” FDA approved the Medtronic hybrid closed loop system. This is the first approved system to automate the dosing of insulin to reduce high blood sugar levels. The Medtronic MiniMed 670G artificial pancreas system is a result of innovations, ground breaking technologies and out of the box thinking. This system is composed of an intelligent pump, 4th generation sensors and software integrating these to create what I would like to call as a Technological Marvel. In India the use of Insulin pump for management for Diabetes has increased over the years. Mainly used in Type 1 Diabetes patients, insulin pumps are also used now in patients with uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes, brittle diabetes or in patients with phobia for needles. This artificial pancreas would be boon for these patients and would help them lead a near normal life without a needle prick!

I had written about #Gymnema sylvestre and its effects on #Diabetes few months back. When www.healthydietfordiabetics.com asked me to write about this less known useful herb I just couldn't give up the opportunity.
Naturally I went ahead and grabbed it!
Took some articles based on research work and compiled.
In the process I also learnt many things
Here goes my article on GYMNEMA SYLVESTRE

After a long break I am back... 

This time we dive into a puzzle which has been baffling the medical field for the past 30 years. It is called "Dawn Phenomenon"

This phenomenon can result in unexplained rise in fasting blood sugars

I am overtime!

I am bored of life...

For whom should I live??

I keep forgetting...

It is too costly for my age

I am just waiting for “HIS” call

Nobody needs me!

Too many types of medicines are just confusing!!

Haven’t we heard this all.... YES! Anyone managing a chronic disorder like Diabetes or Hypertension has spoken these words one time or the other. Management of chronic diseases is a network. It starts with the patient but, involves family members, care givers, doctors and society as a whole.

I am back!

After a long hiatus here I am with my short write-up...

Since this is the first post in 2016 I thought it would be prudent to start with changes in 2016.

Well nothing much has changed in terms of personal or professional life. But...

A group of dedicated professionals are constantly monitoring the world over for subtle evidences in Diabetes which would make the quality of life better!

Yes...... I am talking about the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

This year the American Diabetes Association has focussed on preventive aspects – Prevention of Diabetes, Prevention of cardiovascular complications due to elevated blood cholesterols.

Here are the crux points which we need to consider 

Luckily i came to know that Government of India in view of the impact of Diabetes is planning to prepare its own guidelines. 

This is a welcome measure from the health ministry & GOI. 

I wish it clears all official hurdles  and Indian Guidelines for Management of Diabetes is released soon.
