Increasing the knowledge of people with diabetes gives them motivation and promotes better diabetes control. This, in turn, enhances quality of life and delays, if not totally prevents, the onset of complications, in this line, we have been conducting regular diabetes education camps to public free of cost in the Preksha hospital premises every month.
