LAHORE: Instead of relying solely on physicians, to live a healthy life, diabetic patients need to change their lifestyle and eating habits so that the medical guidance and treatment provided by doctors can be effective in practice and the patient can get rid of diabetes with least amount of medicine.
These views were expressed by Vice-Chancellor Fatima Jinnah Medical University Prof Dr Amir Zaman Khan while addressing the participants of Diabetes Nurses Education Workshop under the supervision of Prof Dr Imran Hassan Khan of Medical Unit One at Ganga Ram Hospital in which nurses in a large number from Ganga Ram, LGH, Mayo and Services Hospital participated.

They gave lectures on care and diet for diabetic patients and highlighted important features in this regard.
Speakers said that diabetes disease can be controlled by avoiding fast food and beverages and regular walks. However, there is a need to raise awareness among the citizens in this regard.
Prof Imran Hassan and Dr Qamar said that with the advancement of modern medical science, it has become quite clear that nurses play a pivotal role not only in the treatment of patients but also in their healing and in improving the routine of wards.
