Sri Prem Chandra Chaudhary stressed upon diet control and a regulated life style. Addressing the gathering, Dr Kota underscored the theme of the event ie “Walk for Healthy Life”. Exercise is the corner stone of diabetes management, which helps insulin to discharge its duty even better and lower the sugar. Additionally exercise is helpful in reducing blood pressure, cholesterol, and improving cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) function. Daily 30-45 minutes of brisk walk is essential. This is ideally achieved by covering a distance of 4-5 km over a period of 45-60 minutes. Dr Kota further elaborated that this can be accumulated in short bouts of walks carried out 2-3 times/ day with each bout consisting of a minimum of 10-15 minutes at a stretch. The elderly people who frequently have knee problems can undergo upper body exercises like banging of hands, rolling over from side to side etc.


An awareness video on Diabetes by Dr Sunil Kota was unveiled by the guests and dedicated to the society. Mrs Madhavi later on thanked Dr Sunil for his tremendous efforts to build up awareness among the people of Berhampur. Dr Kota further thanked the guests and others for their active participation.
