BeatO joins hands with Yog Dhyan Foundation
With more than 400 beneficiaries under its care, Yog Dhyan Foundation is one of the top charitable organizations. It has been helping Type 1 diabetic children and young adults for more than ten years. Together, BeatO and Yog Dhyan Foundation want to inform kids about Type 1 Diabetes and offer them medical advice on how to carry on living a holistically satisfying life. The groups are actively working to provide such youngsters and their families with emotional support. Additionally, BeatO and the Yog Dhyan Foundation are devoting funds to the cause of educating both these families and the general public.
The Health Carnival will feature children’s birthday parties, yoga workshops, and activities. BeatO will host quizzes, set up a specialty food counter, send a doctor to the location to provide medical consultations, provide monitoring facilities, and provide counselling from BeatO’s certified diabetes educators for the children and their families in an effort to spread awareness of this serious issue in a fun and engaging way.
Gautam Chopra, CEO and Co-Founder of BeatO, commented on the association, saying, “BeatO’s aim is to make diabetes care accessible and cheap for all while also bringing attention to this issue among our fellow people. BeatO holds the view that young people are our future and that the wellbeing of the country depends heavily on them. It is essential to promote diabetes control, provide support, and ensure a child’s well-being from a young age because India is the diabetes capital of the world and we are currently witnessing a significant increase in the number of children and young adults being diagnosed with this chronic illness.
Yog Dhyan Foundation
Meeting with a diabetes educator is an excellent method for Type 1 children and their families to obtain support and guidance and to learn how to:
Create and follow a plan for a healthy diet and exercise.
Check your blood sugar levels and note the results.
Identify the symptoms of high or low blood sugar and know how to treat it.
Inject oneself with insulin using a syringe, pen, or pump.
Keep an eye on your eyes, skin, and feet to see any issues right away.
Purchase diabetes supplies and arrange for their safekeeping.
“T1DM children and young people, especially from low-income households, require support and care for longer than just one day, one week, one month, or one year. Until they are able to take control of their lives, it is a long-term relationship. As soon as a child joins Yog Dhyan Foundation, we work to provide them with resources and assistance on all fronts—medically, financially, physically, and most importantly, emotionally. We ensure that our young adults are kind, content, healthy, self-assured, and prepared to take on the world! Bindia Chhabra, vice president of the Yog Dhyan Foundation, continued.
While Type 1 diabetes is more common in young adults due to an autoimmune genetic condition that manifests relatively early in life and prevents the body from producing insulin, Type 2 diabetes cases are also rising quickly among children and young people right now. Diabetics make about one-fourth of the urban Indian population. The main causes of the rise in Type 2 diabetes among young people and children in India are sedentary lifestyles, post-pandemic habits, and rising obesity.
