He added, “Many times, there are preventive strategies or early diagnosis strategies where the onset of these can be delayed. And create something to improve these patients lifestyle, nutritional status, reduce the obesity, control the inflammation
and the systems which advance the disease.”
As per Dr Ganguly, it is important to use some preventive measures either through therapies or through lifestlye changes, exercise , interventions to delay the progression of the disease.
“There is no cure for most of these diseases. At advanced stages, there are very costly therapies which need to be covered by insurance and the insurance system doesn’t respond to many of these needs,” he explained.
According to Dr Ganguly, “We need to invest in drug discovery. Also, training, physical and brain exercise, stem cell therapy can be used.”
He further said, “Training, mechanical training and exercises for the rehab varies from person to person and the kind of injury and damage has occured.”
Dr Ganguly concluded by saying, “We need to create awareness, more centres, advocacy, policy changes and train large number of people for various steps of rehabilitation.”
