RAK Diabetes Center in Jumeirah offering Free Lifestyle wellness checks and Diet Consultation for Ramadan

Month-and-a-half long screening camp for UAE residents; offers comprehensive diabetes check, cholesterol check and diet consultation

Take stock of your blood and cholesterol level for smooth transition into Ramadan diet and back to regular meals

May 15th, 2018, Dubai, UAE:  In the spirit of Ramadan and in order to counter the abrupt changes in diet and sleep pattern for many people, Dubai’s RAK Diabetes Center has initiated a month-and-a-half long free lifestyle and diabetes screening and awareness campaign for the UAE residents. The camp, which offers a comprehensive diabetes check, cholesterol check and diet consultation aims to help people make a smooth transition to a health-friendly Ramadan diet, and then later return to regular meals with least possible discomfort. 

Starting now, the screening will run until June 30th at the RAK Diabetes Center in Jumeirah, and would check the blood sugar level, blood pressure, BMI, height weight and waist measurements and lifestyle wellness check and consultations. The walk-in camp will be open from Saturday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm, while patients can fix a prior appointment for a dietician consultation. 

The lifestyle coach and diet consultant will individually guide patients towards cardiac care, diabetic solution, weight management, exercise program, stress and sleep management and quit smoking solutions. 

 “This year, the duration of fasting will exceed 13 hours and with the soaring temperatures typical of UAE summer, the energy levels are bound to dip a lot,” said Dr Raza Siddiqui, CEO of Arabian Healthcare Group, the umbrella orgnisation of Dubai’s RAK Diabetes Center, Jumeirah, “This is why it’s essential that people keep tabs on their blood and cholesterol health, whether they’re diabetic or not. In fact, this is also a great opportunity for non-diabetics to assess their blood sugar levels and take appropriate measures in case the levels are high. The camp is especially beneficial for those diabetics who plan to fast since they need proper guidelines to ensure a suitable diet and advice on preparing meals before, during and after the month of Ramadan.

“Having said that, the screening camp is as always open to every UAE residents whether s/he is fasting or not, since high obesity levels and increasing number of diabetes cases calls for everyone to screen themselves at least once a year,” added Dr Raza Siddiqui.

As a CSR initiative, RAK Diabetes Center conducts an annual screening programme during the month of Ramadan to assist and guide people in adopting healthy dietary choices that they can follow throughout the year.
