A team of National Integrated Medical Association (NIMA), led by Dr Surinder Gupta, organised a free diabetes check up camp, with an NGO ‘Diabetes Free World’ (DFW) at Sidh Peeth Dandi Swami Mandir here today.

Interacting with the patients, Dr Gupta and other medical consultants said the winter season was just at hand and those who suffering from hypo-thyroidism and hypertension need to take special care. He said as festival season had just gone, now the diabetic patients should restart following dietary chart and lifestyle related instructions, as sincerely as possible.
