Annual SAARC Conference inaugurated in the city

The conference was attended by leading team of endocrinologists from across countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka in addition to all leading medical practitioners from the country.

A team of leading endocrinologists from SAARC countries today inaugurated the annual ‘SAARC Diabetes Conference’ in the city.  The themes of this year’s conference is ‘Sharirmadyam Khalu Dharmasadhanam’ which lays importance on an individual’s responsibility to keep his body healthy. Good health is key to wellness and contributes to the overall performance of an individual. The two-day annual conference organised under the aegis of Dept. of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. is the only platform that brings leading medical experts from SAARC countries together to exchange best practices, update on latest products and other technical advancements that can aid in improving the overall management of Diabetes.

Opened by Prof (Col) Surender Kumar, President of SAARC Diabetes Association, the conference was attended by all leading endocrinologists across the country including Dr V Mohan, Dr Nikhil Tandon and Dr Ambrish Mittal amongst other dignitaries. It was also attended by like-minded stakeholders and practitioners from SAARC countries who highlighted the progress made over the past year towards tackling diabetes in their respective regions as a result of focused awareness programs undertaken. “SAARC countries are among the highest populations of people with diabetes. This conference enables us to exchange key notes, progress and developments on improving the way Diabetes is managed currently. In India specifically, ‘IMPACT India the 1000-Day Challenge’ provides a clear goal and direction for improving diabetes care by reducing HbA1c by 1% over a 3-year period. This is the primary program that can serve as a guide for other countries to learn from”, said Prof (Col) Surender Kumar, Chairman, Department of Endocrinology & Metabolism, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.

As per the 8th edition of IDF Diabetes Atlas, the incidence of Diabetes in South East Asian countries was found to be over 82 million in 2017 which is expected to grow upto 151 million by the end of 2045. This clearly indicated that worldwide, there is a steady increase in the diabetes population owing to ignorance and sedentary lifestyle. Especially in the Indian sub-continent, the high incidence rate of diabetes, has led to a significant health burden. This teamed with lack of awareness and undiagnosed diabetes has paved way for the rise of various heart, kidney, eye and limb diseases. “In India alone, 1 in 12 adults suffer from diabetes and over 11.2 lakh succumb to its complications. To combat this growing burden, the need of the hour is to burst myths and improve awareness on the need to manage diabetes better by adopting a healthy lifestyle and being aware”, adds Dr Sudhir Tripathi, Senior Consultant, Department of Endocrinology & Metabolism, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

    Throughout this awesome design of things you receive a B+ just for hard work. Exactly where you lost me ended up being in the details. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more correct here. Having said that, let me tell you precisely what did give good results. The text is actually extremely convincing and this is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can certainly see a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not necessarily certain of just how you seem to connect the ideas that make your final result. For the moment I shall yield to your point but hope in the future you actually link the dots much better.
