Diabetes Support Group Launch

Bengaluru, Kengeri

In an effort to work towards a diabetes-free Bengaluru and address patient concerns and doubts surrounding the disease, Gleneagles Hospital inaugurated a complimentary diabetes support group on WhatsApp to coincide with World Diabetes Day.

Dr Srinath said, “Most diabetics in India are unaware about the triggers to diabetes and poor blood glucose control like practising poor diet and sedentary lifestyle with inadequate exercise compounded by stress which could lead to development of diabetes. Medication alone is not the only solution so it is important to adopt the right approach with good lifestyle. The objective behind launching a free diabetes support group on WhatsApp is to provide a one-stop platform to address all patient concerns regarding the disease. It is a platform where they can interact, learn and share knowledge with each other. This will hopefully increase our reach amongst patients who are in dire need of awareness to help manage the condition.”
