My name is Vidya Sury. My mission is to help you stay healthy.

I know I can’t heal the world. But I can certainly do my bit – even if it is only sharing information because ‘Knowledge Is Power’ and I know what a difference this could have made in terms of time, effort and money spent for me – sometimes when I couldn’t afford it. I hope you benefit from it.

Why a health blog?

My mother was not in good health for years – it all started when she was diagnosed with Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) – cause unknown (or idiopathic – as the docs say)

There were many occasions when I had to spend hours trying to get information on certain things the doctors assumed I knew about. Sometimes it is good to do some research before a doctor’s appointment because it helps to ask intelligent questions. Very diplomatically, naturally. NO expert enjoys being told or reminded about something he or she might have overlooked.

My mother was being treated by excellent doctors who were amazingly patient and kind. Through the last fifteen years, I have learned a lot of things related to health, medicine, side effects, treatments, do’s and don’ts – which I thought I must share.

Sadly, my mother passed away on February 8, 2010. She was perfectly okay on February 2. On Feb 3, she had difficulty breathing and had to be rushed to the hospital with a collapsed lung. She was on complete life support for 5 days. She developed a pneumothorax and gradual multi-organ failure, and artificially breathed her last on February 8, 2010. As per her wish, her body was donated to St.Johns Medical College, Bangalore.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. It was a shock. My immediate reaction was denial. Obviously, that wasn’t going to help me, so I determined to show diabetes who’s boss. Yes, I had a tough time initially, but now that I know more about how to manage it, I am keen on sharing tips. Diabetes is not a life-sentence. You can have diabetes and be happy!

I also belong to ‘CLINICOM’ an independent ethics committee which evaluates protocols for clinical trials. Our eclectic group is composed of richly experienced individuals, from whose knowledge I’ve benefited from time to time.

Please feel free to send feedback.

Stay healthy!

Hi Mrs. Vidya,

I’m Abhishek, a health fanatic & avid reader.

I came across your blog from one of the top Indian blog sites, and I really enjoyed reading it.
I wanted to share this interesting & healthy initiative that I joined recently- 66FitHoDays. And it’s really helped me get healthier.
The website is 66fithodays.com
It’s a self challenge, that was launched a few weeks back, and is getting quite popular.
My whole friends group has joined the challenge, and it’s quite a bit of fun.

Since your blog covers healthy living, your blog readers might enjoy knowing about this.

And I look forward to more posts on your blog.
