A unique one-stop store for diabetes care, that includes products like insulin, sugar-free food and healthcare books, was opened here Tuesday.
The store called 'D' Lounge has been set up by Way-to-Health, a company involved in the distribution of healthcare products.
"'D' Lounge offers a complete range of products - insulin, blood monitoring meters, sugar-free food like cookies, biscuits, jams and honey. Sugar-free toothpaste is also available here," explained Sourabh Sharma, managing partner of Way-to-Health.
Rajasthan Health Minister Digambar Singh inaugurated the lounge.
"It is a unique concept and caters to unmet needs of diabetes patients since the shop has a variety of diabetes care products under one roof," said Singh.
'D' Lounge also has a collection of books on management of diabetes, which patients can buy or read at the store itself.
According to Singh, about 13 percent of Jaipur's population suffers from diabetes.
