Till the end of the last century, Indian doctors were fighting communicable diseases like Tuberculosis, Malaria and Typhoid in the adult Indian population. However when the Indian economy turned a new leaf in early 90s of the previous century and private sector started to spread its wings, the disease pattern also started to change. Indian people who were undernourished due to the severe droughts started to become overnourished and obese. The tough work culture of the private sector increased the stress levels and the mad race for prosperity made the people to work for longer hours and left little time for relaxation or exercise. This resulted in a rapid spread of non-communicable diseases like Diabetes and High BP which in turn give rise to Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, Stroke etc. Massive increase in the consumption of alcohol, smoking and indiscriminate use of chemicals in food production led to an increase in the incidence of Cancer. Obesity also gave rise to bad bone health resulting in more cases of joint pain and back pain. The number of people undergoing joint replacement surgeries also went up quite rapidly. According to some estimates atleast 10% of the Indian population is suffering from Diabetes or Hypertension and this figure can go up to 25% in the next 10 years. That makes us the Diabetic capital of the world with more than 13 Crore people suffering from this deadly disease.
Type 1 Diabetes is one in which the body does not produce enough insulin and this type of disease is mostly present from birth. Type 2 diabetes is one in which the body which was producing normal insulin, starts producing much lesser quantities resulting in rising levels of blood sugar. This type of diabetes is preceded by another condition called insulin resistance. Insulin Resistance almost always precedes type 2 diabetes. Once you are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you have two paths on which you can go. Either you opt for medicines which will help you for some years before losing their effect and ultimately you would be faced with all the debilitating effects of diabetes like kidney failure, heart disease and stroke. The other path is to understand why the disease occurs in the first place and reversing the causes. Consuming food and drinks which supply quick energy and the absence of regular exercise and an active lifestyle leads to fat deposition in your body which increases the body weight. If you start consuming food in its raw form which means eating as much salads, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in their raw form will go a long way in bringing your blood sugar levels to normal without the help of any kind of medicines. This type of diet will increase your energy levels multifold make exercise an integral part of your life. Once you start your journey on this path, the body weight would start reducing and the insulin production by the pancreas will also improve. Our physician is always there to help you with the right kind of medicines till you change your life into a healhy one.
Blood is your lifeline because two things are required by your body to survive and blood is the only one which is carrying both of these things. The cells in your body require Glucose and Oxygen every moment of their life and blood supplies these two items to each and every cell. The blood is pumped into the body by the heart through a complex system of arteries and veins. Blood flows away from the heart to all parts of the body through the arteries and the blood flows towards the heart through the veins. When a baby is born these arteries are supple and the blood pressure is in the range of 60 / 40. This blood pressure rises as the baby grows up and reaches the level of 120 / 80 for most of the people. The problem starts when the blood pressure starts going beyond these levels. With rising blood pressure the pulse also starts going up and the heart is made to work harder which results in heart disease and chronic hypertension. Since kidneys are supposed to maintain normal blood pressure in your body, the rising levels of the blood pressure put undue pressure on the kidneys and this results in kidney damage leading to kidney failure. Junk food, lack of exercise, alocohol and smoking are major contributing factor for high blood pressure. You can either opt for taking medicines for lowering your blood pressure or you can decide to reverse the causes behind this chronic condition. Medicines will have instant effect and you would feel that you have been cured but this is a false hope. Over the years the dosage of the medication will have to be increased till a time comes when none of the medicines will have any effect. Alternatively you can choose the path of a healthy life and return to normal blood pressure without any medicines. Our physician Dr Sanjeev Sharma will help you in achieving this goal.
