Prameela Mahajan

chennai

Fifty-nine years old Prameela Mahajan from Chennai was diagnosed with liver cancer in the last five months or so. She was in the same situation from that time and had worsened her condition extremely. Now, she faces extreme weakness and pain in the abdomen continuously. For this condition, the woman’s

day-to-day activities are getting hampered quite often. Also, the patient’s family wasn’t in a state to afford her treatment expenses at all.

Her daughter, Maithili contacted Credihealth forgetting the hospital’s recommendations for having the surgical intervention of the liver at that moment. From then on, the patient's daughter was using all her sources to reach a renowned gastroenterologist in Chennai as soon as possible. 

Value Added (Care is still within everyone's a reach) :

  • The medical expert found some time to visit the patient to learn about his health conditions. By doing so,

The experts and hospital authorities can know about the real problem effectively. Here, the authorities calculated the cost of the entire treatment procedure as well.

  • The medical expert arranged a meeting with the patient’s family and hospital manager to discuss their financial status. This coordination helped Mrs. Prameela in getting affordable surgical intervention for liver cancer on a priority basis. 

  • Our medical expert arranged the best hospital in Chennai for the concerned patient by talking with the hospital authority. Then, the process of admission went on without any hassle. Later, the gastro doctor went forward with certain imaging tests to aid in his surgery.

Now, the team of Credihealth keeps in touch with the patient’s daughter for know about health updates. Even, the team gave a word of arranging counseling sessions for the patient, if required.

 Mrs. Prameela has improved her health much with time. Her daughter is very thankful to Credihealth's team for their relentless services and guidance assured at every step of this difficult phase for making the liver surgery successful. Here, the patient and her family may always remain indebted to Credihealth for their act.

Dhruv

Chennai

Dhruv is the only child of his parents. It was the time when he attained the age of 15 years old and he found himself with the disease called Crohn's disease. Although the family was aware because one of Dhruv’s uncles was also going through the same disease and there were chances that the genes may get mutated and the 15-year-old teen may get affected. Crohn’s disease is the type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects the small intestine and causes inflammation in the small intestine with severe pain in the stomach, constipation, and others. The major problem that occurs because of the disease is the inflammation of the small intestine that does not go with time and even increases.

How did Dhruv receive help?

  • Being aware of the symptoms of Crohn’s disease, the parents of Dhruv connected with the best Gastroenterologist in Chennai through the medium of Credihealth.

  • They visited the doctor, the doctor was already having a consultation with another 10-year-old child and his parents because of the same disease. The parents of Dhruv got frightened seeing the side effects of heavy steroids on the 10-year-old child. This time Dhruv’s parents wanted something different for their child.

  • The parents requested the doctor if something could be done to handle the symptoms of the disease only through diet.

  • The Gastroenterologist in Chennai came up with the thought that there is one diet that can help the child with the disease. It is called a specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) that helps to take only a grain-free diet specifically made for the patients going through Crohn’s disease. It is the type of diet that restricts the use of carbohydrates and processed food so that the bowel doesn't get inflamed.

Thanks to the doctor and his intelligence, the parents could now understand how to treat Crohn’s disease. Their only son Dhruv could no longer produce any pain in his stomach and the mother of Dhruv could now make the specifically grain-free food. Crohn's disease is the kind of disease that requires surgery when it becomes aggressive and reduces the function of the bowel. However, Dhruv’s case was different. He and his parents were afraid of the use of heavy steroids and thankfully the carbohydrate-specific diet worked for Dhruv. Thanks to the techniques of Credihealth and the mastery of Gastroenterologist in Chennai, who both helped Dhruv to develop disease free life.

Swathy Ramanand

Chennai

Swathy Ramanand is a media journalist. She came in contact with an orphanage while working on a story. She had been connected to the orphanage for many years but she never thought that the orphanage would help her in adopting a child. Swathy married at the age of 35 and after two years of her married life, she started expecting a baby from her partner. Being unable to conceive, Swathy’s partner went from hospital to hospital and clinic to clinic to seek help. But, all she could bear was to adopt a child from the orphanage she was connected with. The pair adopted a baby girl and in reality, the baby belonged to a very poor area of China.

How did the baby girl receive help?

  • After having a transition from the comfort of an orphanage to a permanent house in India, the baby girl started showing symptoms of a disease.

  • Swathy, who adopted the baby girl went from doctor to doctor, and lastly, she came to know about the team of Credihealth.

  • She had an appointment with a Gastroenterologist in Chennai and came to know that the baby girl was having issues related to liver infection similar to hepatitis B.

  • At the age of 3 years, the baby girl had to take at least three medications per day to fight the disease.

The child fitted into the traditions of the new family and the parents got to learn many things about how to manage the symptoms at home. The parents are now thankful for the practices of the Gastroenterologist in Chennai and the timely help.

Mr. Ankit

Chennai

Ankit was only 7 years old when he first started feeling something different and complained of his bowel habits and pain. After the medical diagnosis and several other tests, Ankit was detected with the presence of Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease is the type of disease that causes inflammation in the small intestine and affects its capability to absorb food nutrients.

How did Ankit receive help?

  • Unfortunately, the gastroenterologist in Chennai who was taking care or overlooking the symptoms of Ankit’s disease shifted out of the town. The parents became unable to cover their daily trips from Chennai to another state.

  • Meanwhile, the parents approached Credihealth and had their appointment fixed with the best gastroenterologist in Chennai.

  • This time, the gastroenterologist had the complete diagnosis again and noticed that the disease was not improving. She, therefore, increased the dosage.

Today, Ankit is 9 years old and has been seeking continuous medical checkups with the same gastroenterologist in Chennai every four months. The parents now only need to cover 2-3 km of distance to reach the hospital they approach through Credihealth. Ankit has now learned how to prepare his body in time of need and how to tackle the situation whenever necessary.
