Thank You very much for Energetic response . Welcome to IFSO-APC 2017! Welcome to GOA!
I am happy to know that IFSO APC 2017 is organizing an initiative with the theme Diabesity with the leading specialist from the public and private organizations.
The nation faces a paradoxial crisis at a moment where the spectrum range begins with poverty and starvation and peaks at obesity. An alarming proportion of the population is either diabetic or obese or both within the productive age group of the nation which majorly contributes to the economy. Rapid urbanization along with rising income and sedentary lifestyles have all been associated with rising levels of obesity. It is a huge challenge to create these conversations from morbidity to productivity.
At this backdrop, we have to find answers to our problems through methods which are feasible and evaluable in the Indian context.
I am confident that the outcome of this deliberation will facilitate to put into place necessary resources for ensuring universal access to quality diagnosis and therapy at the community level. I wish this initiative, all success.
Obesity is a disease declared more than a decade back by the AMA Still unrecognized by the public, clinicians, government, payers. Diabesity is the term coined by WHO due to the closest association between Obesity and Diabities...
