We are also giving 50% discounts on consultation with Diabetologist / Endocrinologist/Physician and 20 % discount on the pathological investigation if advised by doctors at the hospital”
She further added, “In all the years, what I have seen is whether the problems are related to diet, exercise, smoking or alcohol, they can be managed easily if the doctor and patient work in conjunction. We believe that – “Diabetes more you know, safer you are”
“Diabetes affects all the system of the body and can lead to various complications. Various studies have shown that the high incidence of diabetes in India is mainly because of a sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity, obesity, stress, and consumption of diets rich in fat, sugar and calories. The earlier it is detected, it is better to prevent its complications”, shared Dr. Rajshekhar Iyer, Medical Director, Aditya Birla Hospital, Pune.
