You can Save your Child from Diabetes
It’s a truth that the pain of diabetes is known to those who are suffering from it. During the course of our medical practice we meet very distressed parents who are worried that the diabetes they are suffering from, will affect their children too.
Do you know that Type 2 diabetes is the world’s most expensive chronic disease? Prediabetics are also now on increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease. If you are prediabetic, you are likely to develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years, unless adequate precautions are taken. Since type 2 diabetes is difficult to treat, the onus lies in early detection and prevention.
We always advocate the old age theory of “Prevention is better than cure”. Diabetes though not curable is easily avoidable. If you are willing to safeguard your child from the diabetes, GRASS is the way of assessing the risk for them and take corrective steps towards leading a healthy lifestyle.
