The medical camp has been organized in line with The Year of Zayed to promote health awareness in the UAE
It’s a known fact that fasting from sunrise to sunset is a fundamental part of the Holy Month of Ramadan, but it may also impact a person’s health as the body gets exposed to a different eating and drinking habit for an entire month. Hence, it is essential to keep a track on your health especially during Ramadan to ensure a healthy survival pattern throughout the month.
Amina Hospital will offer free health check-ups for all those who fast during the Holy month of Ramadan. The hospital will host this one-month complimentary medical camp daily from starting from 17th May until the last day of Ramadan. The camp will run from (10am-10pm) at Amina Hospital in Ajman, from (9:30am-12:30pm) and (6:30pm-10:30pm) at Doctors Medical Centre at the ADCB Building in Sharjah, and from (10am-1pm) and (9pm-12am) at the Sharjah Corniche Medical Centre at Buhaira Corniche in Sharjah, UAE.
Dr. Abdulsalam Almujammaee, Medical Director at Amina Hospital commented: “Amina Hospital is proud to support the UAE’s Year of Zayed. Through this initiative we want to underline the importance of healthy practices in the community, prevent infections and help residents especially those who are unable to afford basic treatment.”
The medical camp will provide visitors with a comprehensive report of their overall health and provide measures and advise on ways to control and manage their illnesses while fasting. The check-up will comprise several tests including, BP, Height, Weight, Random blood sugar, BMI, ECG (if required) & cholesterol (if required) in addition to a complimentary doctor’s consultation if the vital signs are abnormal.
Dr. Almujammaee added: “Ramadan is a month for worshipping and praying but along with that it is also a special time for families when they come together with relatives and friends to enjoy their traditional delicacies. However, many of us don’t realize and tend to overeat during Ramadan. Hence, it is crucial to maintain a balanced diet and keep yourself hydrated by consuming the right intake of solids and liquids.
“Everyone wants to be healthy and fit during Ramadan, but most people will not avail of these simple check-ups due to lack of time or even financial constraints. Hence, we’ve conducted this complimentary camp so maximum people can benefit from it and we hope that through this camp people will start taking their health seriously and adopt a healthy lifestyle, especially during Ramadan,” he added.
