Baramulla, Nov 13:  The Department of Biochemistry in collaboration with the Department of Medicine, are celebrating the World Diabetes Day (WDD) on Monday. 

On this occasion, a daylong Public Health Welfare Camp is being organized in the Government Medical College, Baramulla, under the aegis of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF).

Diabetes is a complex disease that arises from various causes, including dysregulated glucose sensing or insulin secretion (maturity-onset diabetes of the young, MODY), autoimmune-mediated β–cell destruction (type 1), or insufficient compensation for peripheral insulin resistance (type 2).  Diabetes is a devastating disease afflicting millions of people worldwide and is the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure, and amputation among adults. However, this disease could be properly managed if diagnosed and then treated on time and significantly monitored regularly by a doctor.

The fundamental aim of organizing this camp is to reach-out to the general public, particularly from the North Kashmir region as well as the population living in the vicinity of the GMC, Baramulla. The important baseline diagnostic tests like CBC, Blood Sugar (R) and the HbA1C will be done free of cost.

Notably, there will be free doctor-patient counselling by expert doctors from the Department of Medicine. They will be particularly educating participants about how to diagnose diabetes at the earliest stage? Important questions about how to treat and manage this disease in the long-run with a proper follow-up and monitoring will be addressed as a part of the counselling.
Last but not least, the GMC is highly committed to organize such programs of much needed healthcare in the larger public interest and in future as well under the Dynamic Leadership of Principal/Dean, Prof. Ruby Reshi GMC, Baramulla. The exclusive theme of the event will be “Education to Protect Tomorrow.”
