in three people with type 2 diabetes are given
medication too soon, instead of being urged to eat
better and do more exercise, a study suggests.
of 650 people in south west England found 36% were
put on tablets within a month of being diagnosed, a
Diabetes UK conference heard. Yet UK guidelines
recommend patients should first try to make
lifestyle changes to control the condition.
The Royal College of GPs agreed diet and exercise
should come first.
More than 400 people a day are diagnosed with type 2
diabetes in the UK.
It is often associated with obesity, and attempts in
recent years to screen people for the disease has
increased the number of people being diagnosed. In
the latest study, researchers found that in many
patients lifestyle management was not given a
chance, despite being widely recognised as being the
initial first "treatment".
Metformin is the first drug of choice, but more
drugs can be added if that is not doing enough to
control blood sugar levels.
The researchers found that 13% of participants were
actually on two types of tablets within the first
few weeks of being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Study author Dr Rob Andrew, a senior lecturer at the
University of Bristol, said they had not expected
the figures to be quite so high.
"There is quite clear guidance that says when you're
first diagnosed, you should have the opportunity to
concentrate on lifestyle then if that doesn't work
the next stage is metformin. "When people are
diagnosed, they're ready to make a lot of changes
but if you give them a tablet, you're saying it is
not their lifestyle that is the problem." He added
that incentive payments to encourage GPs to reduce
blood glucose levels in patients with diabetes, a
lack of NHS resources for lifestyle support and a
cultural attitude that people will not make the
necessary changes are probably all to blame. Simon
O'Neill, from Diabetes UK, said they were concerned
that in some cases medication seemed to be the first
port of call.
"A healthy, balanced diet and doing physical
activity should always be the foundation of good
diabetes management. "Type 2 diabetes is a
progressive condition - the longer a person has
diabetes, the more likely they are to need tablets,
and eventually insulin. "Even if people are on
tablets, medication should not simply replace diet
and physical activity."
Professor Steve Field, chairman of the Royal College
of GPs, said there was probably a case of jumping in
too quickly with pills. "It is a reminder for GPs
and nurses managing newly diagnosed diabetes that
lifestyle advice is the most important component."
He added that in some areas of the country there was
a lack of resources for supporting behavioural

Assalam u Alaikum Please accept my
heartiest congratulations on another feather in our cap.
Your radio program on Education with Prof Ghauri as the
guest is a very important yet quite neglected aspect of our
life. We, the parents, are so busy in earning money that we
don't have time to think and seek solutions for the
education related issues of our children.
Contact Pakistan should continue this effort - may be people
like me will try to support it in some way. Callers should
also contact not for their personal issues but for broader
aspects so that a sustainable change be the objective.
In any case, I enjoyed it and I felt quite proud of your
team. Best regards Salis Usman
Dear Usman Bhai:
Thank you very much for taking time and writing us your
views about CP radio & Gup Shup with T&T episode with Prof
Yousif Ghori. We are pleased to note that you find our
efforts fruitful and purposeful and positive contributors to
its listeners. We do agree with you that we as parents
sometime neglect our duty of parenting our children and
surely education is one of the obligations which should
never be compromised and we as Muslim are duty bound to
impart our children with best possible education and this
episode was destined to help parents and the children
alike. We at Contact Pakistan try to pitch in with whatever
we can to strengthen our social and national relationship in
all the sphere of life. It is very satisfying to see people
like yourself appreciate our efforts. May Allah SWT accept
these efforts of Contact Pakistan's team. Please keep
writing us with your suggestions as it will help us improve
our programs. Please do forward the link of this program to
your friends and let them also join a large family of

No to Plastic Bags
As I strolled along the beach, the sight of many plastic
bags littered here and there, marred the experience of
freshness for which I had come to the beach in the early
hours of morning. On way back home, we stopped at a
supermarket for some grocery. As I walked towards the car
with six shopper bags in my hands, I realized how easily all
the purchased items could have been put in at maximum two
bags. Instantly I felt guilty for I consider myself adding
to the plastic bags that are polluting our environment. As
we set off for home, I thought of ways how one can do
anything to control this nuisance caused by plastic bags. So
this write up is about what we can do to stop the spreading
of plastic bags that are a threat to our environment.
According to a survey, plastic bags make up eighty per cent
of the volume of trash on roads, parks and beaches and make
up ninety per cent of the litter in the oceans.People
generally do not realize how plastic bags are adding to
their problems. We frequently complain of choked drainage
systems. Do you know, more than often, it is the wandering
plastic bags that block drainage systems and cause the
smelly, dirty water to ooze out into the streets? This
stagnant filthy water becomes breeding grounds for flies and
mosquitoes which spread cholera, typhoid, and diarrhea.
Plastic bags that are left on sea sides or the ones that
somehow manage to get into rivers and oceans are estimated
to be causing 100, 000 marine animals to die annually.
Sometimes these bags get stuck in underwater rocks. Small
fish get trapped into these bags and ultimately die of
hunger because owing to the water current that is against
them they are unable to swim out of the bag. Bigger fish
often mistake these bags for food and once in their body it
blocks their digestive system for plastic bags are
indigestible. This causes death of these marine animals.
It is estimated that four to five million plastic bags are
produced annually but only few are recycled. The low-density
polyethylene bags used by many retailers are non-recyclable.
The current spread of plastic bags, if left to continue,
will end in a nightmare. It is high time that we do
something to save our environment from the threat posed by
these plastic bags. On individual level, there is a lot we
can do. When you go out for shopping/grocery, take your own
baskets, cloth bags or boxes. If you just have to accept
plastic bags, make sure you stuff them enough and take
minimum of them. Once at home, don’t throw them away but
reuse them. And when you discard them, do it properly
ensuring that they end up getting recycled.So my friends,
come and let us join our hands together to save our dear
earth from the threat of plastic bags by saying ‘No to
