    Blood Tests, Path. labs etc.

    What are the best deals and offers for Blood Tests or other pathology tests in your area or within India ? Which are the most reputed and reasonable path labs ? Is there a better offer for so many blood tests in one package ?
    Please share your experiences on the same.

    This one is a Delhi based franchisee/service provider for Thyrocare Lab. who provide service all over India. Have availed such blood collection and testing through one similar WellnessIndia website before a couple of times. One basically registers with them and they call and collect at your home and send you report after processing samples at the centralized laboratories.

    His ‘Hippocratic Oath’ is still recited by medical doctors today.

    “But they spend very little time trying to help the patient understand the lifestyle changes that are necessary to actually protect his or her health.”

    A consultant doctor has little to no time to educate or counsel his patients since there is an obligation to see other patients, a target that the clinic or hospital owners set for the doctors, a necessary evil they say to keep the show running (it's actually greed). Part of this problem is lower literacy or legal issues due to interpretation by patients about what the doctor explains which if taken wrongly there could be medico-legal problems. The solution lies in massive health awareness programs or initiatives promoted directly by the government or government promoted public-private initiatives.

    What is 'Fitness' & 'Health'?
    Dr. Doug McGuff: "Strange as it may sound, fitness is a state that lacks a precise definition... A similar problem arises when one attempts to obtain a valid definition of health... were surprised to discover that the terms fitness and health - while bandied about liberally within the fields of medicine, health care and physical training - have never been given a universally agreed-upon definition... We cautiously offer the following (working definition):
    Health: A physiological state in which there is an absence of disease or pathology and that maintains the necessary biologic balance between the catabolic and anabolic states.
    Fitness: The bodily state of being physiologically capable of handling challenges that exist above a resting threshold of activity.
    Catabolic: Anything that results in the breakdown of the organism.
    Anabolic: Anything that results in growth and differentiation of the organism."

    Others have said that 'Fitness' is task-specific e.g. fitness for running 5km / fitness for climbing a particular hill / fitness for lifting 200 pounds, etc.

    I hope this post is relevant in this thread. We have stared an India Centric "Diabetes Forum" dedicated primarily to LCHF -- Low Carb High Fat -- Diet based approach to managing diabetes. The same is based on same platform that TFI runs on. Started few weeks back and activity is picking up. Here's the URL:

    http://www.dlife.in/

    Many Indian diabetics following this lifestyle are active there and they have reported huge success with managing their diabetes, improving their lipids and health parameters and have drastically reduced drugs (or even eliminated) even with diabetes history of 20 years and still are getting better numbers.

    Feel free to join, participate and spread the awareness. Drugging a diabetic is not the right approach that the current medicare system follows. Diet is!

    Yes I consulted Dr.Sudhakaran at SP Hospitals.

    I guess this 3D printing will take a deacde or so to find a place in the mainstream treatments.
