BANGALORE, November 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

campaign focuses on helping people identify their individual risk factors for pre-diabetes, as well as the steps they can take to reduce the likelihood of getting Type 2 Diabetes. More than 200 diabetes checkups were conducted, free of charge, by senior doctors and technicians. In case of irregular blood sugar levels, complete prescriptions were provided to the patients by expert diabetes specialists. The campaign was carried out all day long encapsulating a benchmark in the Wellness industry. Senior doctors from reputed hospitals were present at the event and invoked awareness among the masses on how to better manage and prevent the disease.

The event was hosted by MedLife to educate people suffering from diabetes. The doctors spoke to the people about daily nutritional food intakes to keep sugar levels at bay and addressed issues related to Type 1-2 diabetes. With India being the 'Diabetes Capital of the World', with as many as 50 million people suffering from Type-2 diabetes, India has a challenge to face. However, MedLife feels that timely detection and right management can go a long way in helping patients lead a normal life. Un-monitored prevalence of diabetes can result in increased risk of vascular complications like cardiovascular, renal, neural and visual disorders which are related to the duration of the disease.

Charu Gupta, Marketing Head at Medlife.com commented, "We celebrated World Diabetes Day and with this campaign, MedLife aims to raise the health awareness offering screenings, and getting the public in the habit of being screened, which is an important part of raising awareness. Our camp saw a great turnout and we were happy that we were successful in raising awareness about this extremely prevalent and less-known disease. We, at MedLife believe that if every Indian becomes aware at an early age about diabetes, we still stand a chance to #ReverseDiabetes."

"This year's theme #ReverseDiabetes focuses on diabetes education and prevention, urging all people from patient to healthcare providers and government officials to understand diabetes and take control of the disease," she added.
