I grew up on fast food and was overweight for my entire youth. My wake-up call was a couple of years back when I watched both my parents go through the travails of getting diagnosed as diabetic and hypertensives. Since then, my passion has been learning and following the nuances of healthy living.
I am now a firm believer in the natural and organic food movement. I believe that we have the power to change our relationship with our health by focusing on what we eat. I exercise regularly and eat sensibly… two key factors that I believe are essential for great health.

Having diabetes is associated with substantially higher medical and lifestyle expenditures for the person, and adds to the societal burden. Let’s look at some of the initiatives promoted by progressive national governments around the world.

On the other hand, it also places similar high economic pressures on the country’s healthcare system and the economy. Do active and concerted steps taken by governments and the social structure around the individual help make matters better ? In this article, we see a few laudable examples where national governments and the society have undertaken a transformative approach towards non-communicable diseases such as Diabetes, and towards lifestyle, health and fitness as a valid approach to prevention and management of these conditions.
The direct cost of Diabetes
Globally, the number of people suffering with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus which was 108 million in 1980, has surged to 422 million in 2014, and is further anticipated to reach 642 million by 2040. Even without complications, the routine management of diabetes can be more than three times higher than the per capita expenditure for health care. As per a 2016 article published in the popular newspaper – The National, the cost per person in the UAE with Diabetes was US$2,155.90.
Maintaining a daily schedule can help you stay committed to your Fitness Regime. See why this works better and how you could identify your personal zone.
Visiting the gym whenever you have the free time or sticking to the same time everyday – what’s the better option?
Studies indicate that it is better to be consistent and stick to a daily same-time regime. Here are a few of the reasons why this works out better.
The Habit Factor
One of the main reasons why you should consider being consistent in your daily fitness schedule is simply because it requires a lot less motivation. Humans are creatures of habit and when you stick to a regular exercise routine, over a period of time, you turn it to a habit. If you go to the gym whenever ‘time permits’, you are more likely to skip a few sessions – you tend to juggle with ‘other’ commitments for the free time slot everyday. Compare this with having a set daily time for exercise – you then drive yourself towards something that you do automatically.
The Gut Microbiome movement has taken the health & wellness world by storm and has proponents swearing by it’s impact on human health.
Not one to be influenced by popular media, I decided to try out the recommendations myself and see if they were beneficial.
Here’s an account of my experience. But first a look at what the proponents say…
What is the Gut Biome and why do proponents consider it as fundamental to our good health.
Our gut microbiota contains tens of trillions of microorganisms. The distinctive compositions and specificity of the microbiota in one’s intestines makes it rather unique to each individual and is likened to your distinct identity card.
Come to think of it this way, everything that you eat – from the spicy kababs, to the lettuce in your salads is converted by your gut into – your cells, energy, the processes within your body. Proponents of Gut Microbiome vouch that the Microbes in your gut have a strong influence on the process and results and so are key to your health and well being.
Living a healthier lifestyle and fostering a symbiotic relationship with our good gut bacteria helps us modulate immunity, insulate us from toxins, better absorb foods, and fight disease.
Gut microbiota are even being studied for their potential effects on behavior and mental well being. Several studies have hinted at our behavior being affected by our microbes. For instance, a landmark study conducted by Bercik, et al. in 2011 performed a simple experiment, where they basically swapped the gut bacteria between breeds of mice with different characteristic behaviors. One breed which tended to be anxious and timid and the other which were more exploratory and less timid. The study found that the mice changed their behavior to be more like their donor breed. These are newer and exciting fields of study and the results are worth watching our for.

The total cholesterol test and other components of the lipid profile are used along with other known risk factors of heart disease to develop a plan of treatment and follow-up. Know more about this lab investigation
The test for total cholesterol is used either alone or as part of a lipid profile to help predict an individual’s risk of developing heart disease and to help make decisions about what treatment may be needed if there is borderline or high risk. As part of a lipid profile (which includes other tests for high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol(LDL), and Triglycerides), it may also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment once it is initiated.
Because high blood cholesterol has been associated with hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), heart disease, and a raised risk of death from heart attacks, cholesterol testing is considered a routine part of preventive healthcare.
The total cholesterol test and other components of the lipid profile are used along with other known risk factors of heart disease to develop a plan of treatment and follow-up. Treatment options may include lifestyle changes such as diet or exercise programs or lipid-lowering drugs such as statins.
