New Rs100-cr campaign to combat diabetes
 
December 01, 2004
Publication : The Economic Times
 
THE government, the pharma industry and leading hospital chains are planning an allout assault on diabetes. The health ministry has planned a Rs 100-crore campaign to increase awareness about diabetes. Major industry players such as Biocon Ltd, Roche Diagnostics and Wockhardt Hospitals are also chipping in with their individual plans to educate the masses about the killer disease.
Bangalore-based Biocon has tied up with ICICI Lombard and Narayan Hrudayalaya hospital to launch an insurance scheme for the poor. They have planned to set up diabetes clinics across the country to reach out to six lakh people over a period of time.
The combined effort of the government and the healthcare industry is expected to double the size of the Rs 600-crore market for insulin, pills and diagnostics in the next five-six years. Health minister Anbumani Ramdoss told ET that his ministry is planning to spend Rs 100 crore in the next two years for the campaign under which every individual in the country would be screened.
Dr Ramdoss said the government would buy insulin and other pills from firms like Biocon and Wochkardt to encourage their domestic production. The health ministry has already approached the Planning Commission and the Prime Minister for funds for the campaign. Biocon CMD Kiran Mazumdar Shaw told ET from Bangalore that the insurance scheme christened "Arogya Raksha" would be launched on December 19 at Anekal taluka in Karnataka. She said substantial funds have been earmarked for the campaign, but declined to divulge the amount.

Sometimes , God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes , He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes , He sends us pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes , He sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes , He sends us illness so we can take better care of our selves.
Sometimes , He takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything we have.

Hi :
I have reduced my insulin units ignoring my BSLs .... bcause i found that i m taking high dose of insulin , which is also high to my need ....
a two day ago i reduced took this decission ...
now i m on :

Morning ..
Humulin regular 15 units instead of 18
Humulin N.P.H 30 units instead of 36

Evening .......
Humulin regular 10 units instead of 12
Humulin N.P.H 14 units instead of 20

well.. it seem like a bad decission to cutt off that much ...
but now my BSLs are ..
