Old age can be accompanied with diabetes and blood pressure. These lifestyle diseases are very common and most people are likely to have at least one known person who is suffering from these ailments. We came across one such person suffering from diabetes and hypertension who was in dire need of help.
Nanduben (Mrs. Nandu Dhiru Vadher), a 52 years old woman lives with her family of 5 members in Kukarash village of Gujarat. She is a housewife suffering from diabetes for the last 5 years. After taking consultation and medicines from a Private hospital, she felt little improvement in her health. Struggling with everyday chores, she decided to visit our Mobile Health Unit (MHU) and showed her report to our doctor who examined her symptoms and concluded that besides diabetes, she was also affected by hypertension. At that time her diabetes was 205mg/dl and hypertension 160/90 mm/hg.
