To win the battle over Diabetes, start by losing!
One of the biggest causes of severe diabetes, especially in the UAE is excessive weight gain. That’s why the one thing you need to lose most quickly is your excess weight…to gain diabetes-free health!
Remember, losing just 5% of extra body weight can help you control your blood sugar levels much better. The more weight you gain over time makes it challenging to lose it early as your body metabolism slows down as you age, which in turn makes it difficult to control diabetes. That’s why the earlier you get into the habit of maintaining a healthy weight (and of course an early check-up to gauge your condition), the more prepared you can become to stay diabetes-free.
Are you Seeing the World in Pink?
Across the world this year, the common theme for breast cancer awareness to everyone is one that signals positivity to women around the world: “Together we can.”
At Healthub Clinics, we echo the same sentiment in 2023 through our campaign in spreading awareness (coming in from last year), called ‘See the World in Pink”. It’s a clarion call for women across the UAE in supporting one another to not only go in for a breast cancer screening but to also get together in spreading awareness about the need to go in for an early check-up.

Watch out for a painful ‘Tennis Elbow’
So, you just turned a doorknob, and that sharp shooting pain feels like its burning, moving right down to your wrist. You experience elbow pain when lifting and gripping anything. You find your grip weakening in lifting that coffee cup or picking up that tennis racquet.
Why being mindful about Thyroid matters
Have you noticed a butterfly shaped gland in front of your neck, roughly about 2 inches long? That’s your ‘thyroid gland’, responsible for producing the hormones in your endocrine system that help regulate your body’s functions.
