A medical practitioner has appealed to pensioners and the aged to practise good eating habits, not think too much and avoid drinking hard liquor in order to live long and be role models in their communities.
Dr. Gyimah Abel of the Salvation Army Clinic at Amia Ba in the Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam District said this when he addressed about 150 members of SSNIT Pensioners’ Association at Enyan Denkyira at their monthly welfare meeting.
He said pensioners should visit the hospitals regularly, adopt good eating habits, avoid fatty foods among others to control hypertension.
He said even though diabetes could be traced on hereditary or family disease, it could be controlled through healthy habits.
Dr. Gyimah, who was accompanied by two nurses, Mr. Michael Fergurson and Miss Hannah Ewusi, screened 55 people, checked blood sugar levels and blood pressure.
The Chairman of the Association expressed gratitude of the Association to the medical team. GNA
