Trivandrum: HLL Lifecare Limited has opened a Sunday diabetic clinic at the Hindlabs Diagnostic Centre and Speciality Clinic functioning at the Trida Complex opposite Medical College.

The Sunday clinic, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, will provide doctor’s consultation and other services, including blood glucose tests, Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) and creatine tests. The package is affordably priced at Rs.500.

Led by Dr. Dinesh Prabhu, the clinic offers screening tests for early detection of diabetes and also offers post diabetic tests for diabetic patients.

"Almost 80% of Keralites are either office employees or do business related work, leaving them free only on Sundays. Hindlabs considered the convenience it would bring to patients in starting this initiative,” said HLL
CMD R P Khandelwal.

 In Kerala, the rural-urban gap is not very prominent and diabetes can be found commonly in both sections of society.

“The development of the IT sector has increased the number of diabetic patients, due to a sedentary work styles and irregular eating habits,” said Dr. Prabhu, who was formerly head of the first diabetic clinic of Directorate of Health Service, Govt. of Kerala. The Sunday clinic is aimed at this group of professionals.

Dr. S Rajan will head the clinic from Mondays to Saturdays. Appointments can be made on 9400027969.
