10 Early Signs of Diabetes that you shouldn’t Ignore

Each one of us, who is reading this, has or knows someone who has diabetes.

That is just about how common this disease has become. Diabetes was, up until recently, associated with elders, and the number of cases were not as many. At present, diabetes affects more that 7% of the adult Indian population and is reported in ages as young as 35. Diabetes is manageable, but if not detected in time, and without proper treatment, the ailment can prove to be fatal. Awareness is the key to helping people understand the disease and recognize its symptoms.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus, or more commonly, diabetes, is a condition where the body cannot maintain normal blood sugar levels. It occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin or when the body does not respond normally to insulin, which is a hormone that helps to control blood sugar levels.

How does it impact our health?

When blood sugar levels rise, they can lead to serious health problems like heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, kidney failure, blindness, nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy), infections/poor healing of wounds, and a lower sex drive.

What are the symptoms of Diabetes?

Most symptoms of diabetes are very generic and are therefore unrecognizable at first glance. Here is a list of the most common symptoms that should make you head straight for a Diabetes health check:

  1. Frequent urination
  2. Increased thirst
  3. Weight loss
  4. Increased hunger
  5. Unexplained weakness or fatigue
  6. Blurry vision
  7. Nausea and vomiting
  8. Numbness or tingling of the feet
  9. Frequent infections
  10. Vaginal discharge or itching in young girls

Having mentioned the above, there have also been instances where diabetes has been detected without having shown any symptoms. Diabetes is a genetic disease, and it therefore becomes very important for a person with a family history of diabetes to regularly get checked for the ailment, even if no symptoms show up.

Buraa na Maano, Holi Hai!

Holi and Health SafetyHoli, the festival of colours, brings back so many fond memories of our childhood. Remember how our mothers would warn us about safeguarding our eyes? And staying away from those troublesome boys who would smear everyone with those oh-so-difficult-to-remove silver and gold colours?

The kids would have heated debates on which colour should be added into the bucket first, which one for friends, and which ones for the rivals… Teenagers who would stay holed up inside their rooms lest the colours play havoc with their already troubled skin and hair.

And dads couldn’t wait for the kids to first have their share of fun in the early hours before the free flow of special sweets and savouries would begin followed by a hearty family lunch.

Holi and Health

In all, every fond memory of Holi revolves around two elements – choice and health care. Buraa na maano, but we’d like to tell you how you can make your Holi even more enjoyable with your health buddy, MediBuddy. Short of helping you get organic colours, which we strongly recommend that you use, and your mom’s magical recipes, you will find everything else you need on MediBuddy.

Care for your eyes, skin and hair? You will find a specialist doctor who can help you with specific answers that you may seek.

Have a question on managing your medication while you give in to the temptation of the food and sweets around you? Opt for an online consultation with a doctor for some quick tips.

Want a more comprehensive assessment of your health? Choose from a range of health screening packages offered by some of the leading hospitals and medical centres in your city.

And, why lose a minute during your family get together? Opt for doorstep delivery of medicines for the entire family.

Happy Holi, all! May you always be in the pink of health!

Do remember to check out the Offers page on MediBuddy to browse through the special discounts available for you both during the festive season and year round.

Medi Assist Forays Into Outpatient Healthcare Delivery With MediBuddy Infiniti

In an interaction with the media persons in Bangalore, Prashant Jhaveri, Chief Business Officer and Satish Gidugu, COO, Medi Assist spoke about the new offering from the organization, MediBuddy Infiniti. This is what Satish had to share:

“What differentiates MediBuddy Infiniti in the market is our curated network of hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic centres. On Infiniti, you will find services offered by partner providers and specialist doctors that Medi Assist members have historically preferred and trusted for their medical needs. Our focus is on showcasing trusted providers rather than merely maximizing the number of listings.”

The Medi Assist Group, a managed healthcare organization, has launched MediBuddy Infiniti, the country’s first truly integrated online platform for discover, scheduling and management of curated  outpatient services. Infiniti brings together the might of 10,000+ trusted hospitals, diagnostics centres, medical clinics and authorized pharmacy partners in the Medi Assist Network to provide one-stop online platform for personalized outpatient services.

Medi Assist has delivered over 3 lakh health checks, 3 lakh+ outpatient consults and outpatient benefits of over INR 150 crores in the last fiscal.

Addressing media persons in Bangalore, Prashant Jhaveri, Chief Business Officer, Medi Assist said, “Seamless access to quality healthcare through the illness-to-wellness continuum at affordable prices is the need of the hour. We aim to leverage technology, partnerships and the magic of the human touch to deliver informed healthcare decisions to our members.”

Outpatient care is a recurring, and expensive, need for every family. A recent report by FICCI released in December 2015 suggests that primary healthcare accounts for over 70% of all medical spend and pegs the market at around INR 135,000 crores. The per capita spend of urban households on outpatient care is approximately INR 4,250 per person – a typical urban family of four adults, therefore, spends an average of INR 17,000/- per month on doctor consults, medicines and diagnostic labs.

With Infiniti, Medi Assist members will be able to discover, compare and schedule outpatient services of their choice, with a specialist doctor at their preferred network provider, at preferential pricing, on one comprehensive online platform.

Speaking about the latest offering, Satish Gidugu, COO, Medi Assist, said, “What differentiates MediBuddy Infiniti in the market is our curated network of hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic centres. On Infiniti, you will find services offered by partner providers and specialist doctors that Medi Assist members have historically preferred and trusted for their medical needs. Our focus is on showcasing trusted providers rather than merely maximizing the number of listings.”

On MediBuddy Infiniti, Medi Assist members will find an exhaustive listing of OPD services including preventive care packages, health checks for chronic condition management, doctor consults and second opinion services, home healthcare, doorstep pharmacy, and other unique services such as genome mapping and instant doctor connect. Currently covering over 45 cities, Infiniti will grow both in depth of catalogue as well as reach across the country in the months to come.

Medi Assist’ inherent strength is its ability to help members reduce overall spend and convert their transactions into a cashless format. For example, over 50% of all inpatient claims administered are availed by their members in the cashless format.

Satish further added that, “Having worked relentlessly with our partners to simplify access and delivery of inpatient care in a cashless format, it is now time to move outpatient benefits into the cashless realm in a much bigger way. While the discounts offered by our partner providers reduce cost of care, these services can become completely cashless if the OPD expenses are covered under a health insurance policy or a sponsored corporate wellness program administered by Medi Assist.”
