  • We measure your risk as you treasure your health

    You may not have considered the possibility of becoming diabetic. However, the fact is, you could already be at risk.

    Did you know that India has globally the highest number of diabetics in a single country? That the incidence of diabetes in the cities is more than twice the percentage in the rural areas?

    In 2011, an estimated 61 million Indians were diabetic, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), and by 2030, it predicts that over 100 million Indians would be diabetic. Also, Indians develop diabetes at a very young age, at least 10 to 15 years earlier than the western population.

    All of which means that if your close family members have it, if you have several lifestyle factors that together place you at a real risk, you should choose a simple yet comprehensive assessment.

    At Lifespan Clinic, we will assess your exact nature and extent of risk. That's how you can come to know what you need to do, and what you need to avoid. You can lower your risk, or if there is a possibility, be able to avert it.

    Why this week and not the next ?

    If you are pre-diabetic, you can delay or avert the onset of diabetes. It's really up to you.

    Here's how doing the test very soon
    will help:

    ♦ Highly personalised evaluation of your specific risk profile

    Not only hope, but help too

    You have diabetes. You have a heart condition. And the diabetes could be negatively affecting your heart.

    High blood sugar makes blood thicker and adds to the stress on the heart and blood vessels. Moreover, other conditions that diabetics typically suffer from also have an adverse effect on the cardiovascular system. High blood pressure, obesity and abnormal blood fat levels only add to the risk. How can you manage the higher levels of risk?

    At Lifespan Clinic, we set about identifying your root cause of your diabetes before developing a personalised diabetes treatment plan for you.
