Since this has a lot to do with being a social cause we have collaborated with the Rotary club of Pune too.”

Vishwakarma Aegle Medical & Research Foundation (VAMRF) is offering to provide a comprehensive process for Awareness, Early Detection, Prevention, and Control & Care for Diabetes through Education.

Dr. Purvez Grant, Managing Trustee and Chief Cardiologist, Ruby Hall Clinic, Pune, informed, “Diabetes is a huge problem, and 10% of Pune’s population is diabetic. It is a silent killer. Behaviorally, it is observed in the richer sections of the society. Out of the top 10 richest in Pune, 4 are diabetic. Diabetes is a cause of metabolic syndrome which leads to other diseases like obesity, blood pressure and prostate cancer. ”

To work towards a Diabetes free society through a network of Certified Diabetes Practitioners & Educators. Our sole objective is to empower, educate and equip diabetes patients, society and medical professionals with diverse resources in diabetes and preventive healthcare. We strongly believe that every diabetic individual has a right to live a healthy life; we work towards facilitating and endorsing this cause actively through our offerings.

Dr. Sanjay Agarwal said, “One in four families have a diabetic future in today’s scenario. Thus it is necessary to understand that it is not enough to treat diabetes but to prevent it. Take control of your diabetes. Compared to other countries India spends a mere amount of 6 billion USD on diabetes medical care whereas the USA spends about 263 billion USD. Thus, India remains a diabetes time bomb. In spite of having good educationists, hospitals and other medications, globally diabetes is an epidemic owing to the lifestyle changes. Cost of inaction is unacceptable.  ”

District Governor of Rotary Club Mr. Vivek Arhana said, “It becomes difficult to not accede to such ailments considering we have the sweetest mothers and wives and there is no medical aid for it! It is necessary to eradicate the shrub from the root and that is possible only with education. Hospitals will be empty without diabetics! ”
