Such policemen were provided with genuine routine advice through which they can control their sugar level, can remain fit and keep such diseases at bay,” said ASP (HQ) Manisha Pathak Soni. In the programme, the policemen were informed by experts that inappropriate diet, no exercise, improper sleep and such other things cause diabetes among people.
