New Delhi, Delhi India (PressExposure) November 17, 2011 -- To mark the World Diabetes Day, Hashmi Herbal organized a fun filled picnic to create awareness in Type 1 children and young diabetics along with their parents in town.
The event was a part of World Diabetes Day celebrations & included activities like quiz on diabetes for parents and other games spreading awareness on management of diabetes in children. Doctors & educators from Hashmi Herbal were present at the celebration who answered all queries of children & parents.
Speaking on the initiative, Dr. Hashmi, Senior Consultant, Hashmi Herbal said, "Type 1 diabetes is a chronic disease and is associated with deficiency of insulin. This causes sugar to build up too high in your blood. It is much less common than type 2 diabetes and typically affects younger individuals. Children in Type 1 diabetes need insulin for survival since their pancreas is not producing insulin hormone at all. The awareness among the parents of children with diabetes is essential for better management of the disease. Recent advancements in the diabetes technology like Insulin pump, easy to use glucose meters & insulin pens are readily available for use these days which make life with diabetes much simpler"
He further adds "Diabetes prevention is proven, possible, and powerful and it's never too late to start. The key is: small steps that lead to big rewards. However tweaking the lifestyle could be a big step toward diabetes prevention."
People of town have shown interest in this fest and participated in this diabetes fest. Hashmi herbal has set up a free check up camp for people who are diabetic. Hundreds of patients got free check up during fest and Hashmi herbal distributed free medicine as well.
