Obesity means having too much body fat. Factors that might affect your weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active. Obesity increases your risk of heart disease and so on. It also causes diabetes which is difficult to treat


To help people to get rid of diabetes and obesity, in the year 2012, Dr Jagannath Dixit started an obesity and diabetes free campaign. This campaign is there since five years through social media. For which, 99 WhatsApp group have been formed. And the patient can share his information and problems. And the doctor suggests the treatment accordingly. Now, 60 doctors are working through this group.

Spekaing to My Medical Mantra, Dr Jagannath Dixit, HOD of community medicine and Professor Govt Medical College, Latur said, “If a person is diagnosed with diabetes. He/she is dependent on medications. But according to the research, diabetes can be controlled with taking medication and by following a healthy diet (diet therapy). We have studied 400 patients through diet therapy. Due to which, some lost weight and even their diabetes was in control.”

He added, “Diabetics have to take insulin throughout their life.  However, obesity and diabetes can be controlled, if you eat food twice, follow the dietary restrictions and walk regularly. The name of the group is ‘Obesity And Diabetes Free India’. There are 99 WhatsApp groups and which have 11,000 followers. People from 21 states have been associated with us.

There are diabetics and pre-diabetics. Proper guidance is provided free of charge by the doctors to those who seek advice through this group.

Dr Veda Nalawade, a Homeopath from Pune said, “Since many years, Doctor Dixit is creating awareness amongst people. I joined it, as soon as I came to know about this initiative. Through this initiative, guidance is given on how much quantity of food should be eaten to prevent diabetes and obesity.”
