Surgery for Diabetes- Lets talk about Cure and not control

Last evening I was at the south Delhi DMA meet with more than 200 specialist and physicians. It was a splendid moment sharing my view about current trends in Metabolic Surgery for Diabetes. To my surprise many of my colleagues still are unaware of the surgery for diabetes in India!! The governing body of the world for diabetes called the IDF or the International Diabetes Federation has set up clear guidelines for prioritization for surgery in diabetics, just that we are still resisting the change and still don’t seem to offer surgery to our diabetics. My appeal to all my friends and colleagues— Diabetes is now a curable surgical disease—Please consider it as a treatment option for yourself and your patients rather than living with diabetes and its complications…

Lets get rid of it …Now..

World Diabetes Day and Children’s day

World Diabetes day and Children’s day, wow what a co-incidence!! Not sure what to say , do I start with Diabetes and India, making of an Asian auto-destructive society or a B’Day celeberations of our own Chaha Nehru!!. Gone are those days when we used to celeberate children’s day with lots of pomp and show, having fun at school, picnics planned by our parents and a get together with family and friends…Its appears to be a mere day of rememberance with no emotional strings attached. Its also heartbreaking to learn that Type-I diabetes is on a rise in India. Article in todays HT, “Children below 13 yrs prone to Type-I Diabetes” also narrates this sad story.. Sexual abuse to the school kids also is a concern, we need to educate our kids against this social evil and gard and protect them.

With all the negativity and darkness around , I still have a ray of hope and positivity for our Type II Diabetics.. Yess.. Metabolic Surgery for Diabetes is here to stay. We have seen close to 85% resolution in select patients with type –II Diabetics. Would request all my friends and colleagues suffering from DM, to consider surgery as a safe an definitive corrective option for this deadly disease.

Stay fit, Stay Young!!
