Straight from the Heart: Legal Success Stories

Dr KK Aggarwal National President IMA & Team Legal IMA

Since I took over the reins of Indian Medical Association (IMA), we have done our level best to make IMA work in the interest of not only the medical professionals but also the medical profession and the rights of the public.

Following are a few of the success stories.

  1. PIL: IMA part of CPCC Committee on Pollution in Delhi: IMA filed a Public Interest Litigation titled “Indian Medical Association versus Union of India & Others, W.P.(Civil) No. 895/2016” before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India thereby praying the Hon’ble Apex Court to issue directions to the concerned authorities for taking immediate actions against the increasing levels of pollution and for constitution a Monitoring committee for monitoring the same. In the said case, Mr. Gopal Subhramanian, Senior Advocate and Team Legal IMA appeared on behalf of IMA. After hearing the arguments, the Hon’ble Apex Court had asked the Central Pollution Control Committee to constitute a committee for taking immediate steps for reducing the pollution levels. Accordingly, the Central Pollution Control Committee has constituted a committee and has also made IMA a party of the said committee.
  2. Legal Notices: Indoco Remedies ceased from using “IMA Recommends” Legal notice dated 02.09.2016 was sent to Indoco Remedies for using the words “IMA recommends” on its product without the permission of IMA. In response to said notice dated 02.09.2016 the Indoco Remedies has sent reply dated 14.10.2016 wherein they have accepted that they shall not use the words “IMA Recommends” in the advertisement or otherwise.

Heartburn and indigestion pills can increase kidney failure risk
Medication should be avoided unless advised by the doctor and is necessary
 
New Delhi, 26 November 2017: Popping common heartburn and indigestion pills can increase the risk of kidney failure, if recent studies are to be believed. The study found that individuals who used proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), which reduce gastric acid production, had a 33% increased relative risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) or kidney failure when compared with non-users. The IMA further advises that it is best to avoid medication unless necessary and advised by the doctor.
 
Chronic kidney disease can strike any one. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two leading causes. Other risk factors for kidney disease include heart disease and a family history of kidney failure—a severe form of kidney disease.
