PC Sorcar, Mumtaz Sorcar inaugurate Apollo Sugar Clinic in Kolkata

Kolkata, Nov 14 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals launched the second Sugar Clinic in Kolkata on the occasion of World Diabetes Day on Monday.

The Clinic was inaugurated by legendary magician Shri P C Sorcar (Junior) and Mumtaz Sorcar in the presence of Dr Rupali Basu, CEO – Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals.

Dr Rupali Basu said during the launch of the Sugar Clinic, “Management of diabetes in India is currently scattered and fragmented. This results in sub-optimal control of blood sugars and high incidence of complications. The concept of pre-diabetes is non-existent in India and thus we are losing an opportunity to prevent / delay onset of diabetes in a large section of population.

“Apollo Sugar Clinic is a complete and integrated solution to manage diabetes and offers customized solutions to different sections of the diabetic population.
“Community screening for diabetes, identifying pre-diabetics and helping them prevent / postpone diabetes, helping diabetics with better controls on blood sugar levels and preventing complications of diabetes and early identification of complications of diabetes and their management are all part of this initiative.”

Dr Tirthankar Choudhury, Senior Consultant – Endocrinology at Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals said, “We are providing a truly world class diabetes disease management program at the Sugar Clinic by introducing  evidence based practice as a formidable tool to decide on treatment strategies in diabetes.”

The first Sugar Clinic was launched by Apollo Gleneagles at their Gariahat Centre and the hospital plans to have three more such clinics in different parts of the city.
