A recently held health check-up and blood screening test conducted by Dispur Hospitals of the Guwahati based journalists of Assam showed positive results.
The camp came up with the revelation that Guwahati based journalists maintain good health as most of them have performed well in the blood screening camp conducted by Dispur Hospitals.
The camp was organized by Guwahati Press Club.
Almost 80 scribes, aged between 30 to 60 years, participated in the free camp, where their blood samples were collected to test thyroid, haemoglobin and sugar etc.
Only 11 journalists were diagnosed with high thyroid stimulating hormone (more than seven milli-international units per liter or mIU/L), where four participants were with low haemoglobin (less than 12 gm/dl) and five with high random blood sugar (more than 140 mg/dl).
This was stated in a press statement issued from the Guwahati Press Club, where the camp was organized last week.
Dr Jayanta Bardoloi, managing director of Dispur Hospitals offered free consultations to the participating member-journalists, so that they can start medication in need, the release added.
The statement further informed that interested scribes may go to Dispur Hospitals at Ganeshguri in Guwahati for necessary consultation and medications.
