GST: A boon for Indian diagnostics sector by Arindam Haldar, CEO, SRL Limited

The passing of the GST (Goods and Services Tax) Bill and its enactment on July 1, 2017 has grabbed the attention across all sectors in the country.

Arindam Haldar

The passing of the GST (Goods and Services Tax) Bill and its enactment on July 1, 2017 has grabbed the attention across all sectors in the country. It would benefit most of the sectors and make the taxation process easier as it will replace a number of different taxes and duties. It is expected that the goods and services tax would have a constructive effect on the healthcare industry, particularly the healthcare and the diagnostic sector, hence the decision of the GST Council to exempt healthcare and diagnostics from Goods and Services Tax needs to be commended. It would help the industries by streamlining the taxation structure. Also, an amalgamation of all the taxes into one uniform tax will ease the way of doing business in the country, as well as minimise the cascading effects of manifold taxes.

Healthcare sector exemption from GST is a welcome move in which the government has accorded healthcare the due importance and impetus that they need to become game-changing agents for the transformation of India, its people and the economy. In the longer run, GST being a more efficient system will help in increasing the revenues and spending capacity of governments at the Centre and the states leading to a positive impact on the GDP.

As the healthcare industry has been growing exponentially recently, the ministry of health has targeted the development of new technologies for treating diseases by focusing on affordable diagnostic testing. GST will prove to be a progressive step in this direction as nearly 17 federal and state taxes will be replaced with one uniform tax.

The multiplicity of taxes incurred on healthcare—such as excise duty at the time of manufacturing, central sales tax (CST), additional duties of custom on imports, service tax on propagated services and other levies of the states—were having a debilitating impact on the healthcare industry. As healthcare has been exempted from the goods and services tax altogether, no GST can be levied on healthcare services by a clinical establishment, while diagnostic services are exempt from GST for the services provided to its customers.

Even with a 12% GST on the supply of reagents and kits by the suppliers with the exact impact of GST on diagnostics industry to be worked out, it is likely that the new GST legislation would definitely benefit the consumers by making affordable healthcare a reality. The multitude of taxes such as excise duty at the time of manufacturing, central sales tax, additional duties of custom on imports, service tax on propagated services and other levies of the states used to burden healthcare, which ultimately saddled the consumer with heavy bills.

However, this is not to say the cost will not increase on any front. In a few cases, there is likely to be a marginal impact on the negative side which the diagnostics industry will have to take with a pinch of salt. There may be certain services like Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)/X-rays and contrasts, where the cost may increase marginally. The diagnostic industry is still evaluating the exact impact on the pathology side.

If we look at the big picture, the GST exemption will create a level playing field for healthcare companies, irrespective of their geographical location within the country. This will have a positive impact as the end customer will stand to gain with the anti-profiteering clause in-built in GST. The GST rollout is not likely to adversely affect the diagnostics industry and our customers need not lose sleep over this.

One-third of Indians suffer from thyroid disorders

In a report published by SRL Diagnostics, it was revealed that 1/3 of Indians suffer from thyroid disorders, Hypothyroidism being the most common among them.

Nearly 32 per cent of Indians are suffering from various kinds of thyroid disorders including thyroid nodules, hyperthyroidism, goiter, thyroiditis and thyroid cancer, says a report.

The report, published on thyroid panel test by global diagnostic chain SRL Diagnostics, revealed that sub-clinical hypothyroidism -- a milder form of hypothyroidism and where the diagnosis is made by chance -- is the most prevalent form of thyroid disorder across the country.

Sub-clinical hypothyroidism, in which the thyroid functions just below the normal level, is a silent disease which is being increasingly diagnosed in the Indian population, the report said.

Further, people living in the North Indian regions have maximum cases of hypothyroidism as compared to the rest of the country.

"The data shows a vital map of how thyroid abnormalities are present all across the country in its various forms," Avinash Phadke, President Technology & Mentor (Clinical Pathology) from SRL Diagnostics said in a statement on Wednesday.

Thyroid diseases are more commonly seen in women and cause a multitude of problems, most notably, weight gain and hormonal imbalances.

However, even men are at risk, though their chances of suffering from thyroid diseases are considered to be less as compared to women.

The analysis is based on in-house data collected from over 33 lakh adults pan India over a time period of 2014-2016, where all three thyroid panel markers, namely TSH, T4 and T3 were included to produce a comprehensive data analysis, out of which 68 per cent of reports were normal.

"Genetics play a crucial role in both determination of thyroid hormones and TSH concentrations, and susceptibility to autoimmune thyroid disease. People who have a history of thyroid problems in their family would be predisposed to thyroid abnormalities. Thus, it is important to be aware of your family's medical history because it will directly influence yours," Phadke added.

Women Of Substance Awards 2017 –Celebrating Women Who Survived The Odds

We often talk about women empowerment and gender equality, but how often do we appreciate the efforts of ones who actually survived the odds and stood strong for their beliefs? The Women of Substance award by SRL Diagnostics is one such initiative where they aim to recognize those women who dared to challenge the societal norms and inspired millions of other women to show courage and stand-up for themselves. This is the 3rd season of Women of Substance Awards.

I personally believe that it is a brilliant way to celebrate womanhood and encourage women empowerment. Kudos to SRL Diagnostics for taking this wonderful initiative! It takes a lot of courage to go beyond conventions and break the stereotypes in a male dominated world. Whether it’s an acid attack survivor, a female rickshaw driver or a woman who left her high paying job to serve the under-privileged, the respect for these women is enormous.
This International Women’s Day, I am really happy that SRL Diagnostics took this initiative to recognize the Women of Substance.

If you know any woman who deserves to win this award and her story needs to be shared with the world, nominate her HERE. Last date to nominate is 15th Feb. Please note that the nominated ladies should be residents of India. The award ceremony will be held in the first week of March. I shall share more about this real soon, till then go ahead and help me spread the word about this wonderful initiative by sharing this post with your friends and family. You never know, someone might make a valuable and deserving nomination!

Time to recognize women’s contribution!

Women have the power to create, nurture and transform the lives around her. Every woman is remarkable in her own way but there are few who survive the worst and bounce back stronger. They are the ones who stand strong against all odds of the society and change the definition of what it means to be a woman in today’s age. Women who have chased their dreams and made a name for themselves, inspired millions of others to do the same; SRL Diagnostics (a leading diagnostic chain in India) salutes and recognizes them with Women of Substance award.

A woman of substance can be anyone whose story makes you want to believe that there’s nothing unstoppable about her, like Deepa Malik who, at the age of 45 became India’s first ever woman to win a medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. There are also women who have created a name for themselves in a male dominated profession like Sunita, an auto rickshaw driver,who transcended all barriers and chose a male dominated profession for her living.
There are also those women who have beaten all odds and are giving back to the society. An acid attack victim survivor who is bringing a change among others or a woman leaving her comfortable job for the betterment of the society- all these decisions require a lot of courage which shows that these are strong and resilient women. For example, Laxmi is an acid attack survivor who speaks for the rights of acid attack victims and Gloria Benny had quit her job at Google to make a difference for the underprivileged – these are just a few examples of the real women of substance!

There are many such woman around us who are contributing a lot to the society in varied ways and can be an inspiration for others. Share your stories with us and tell us what makes you that woman! If you know any woman in your life whom you value and see as a woman of substance, you can nominate her for the Women of Substance 2017 award. Click on the link below!
Women of Substance 2017

The last date for nominations for the Women of Substance award is 15th February 2017. So hurry up!

Low levels of Vitamin B12 a big concern in India: SRL Study

North Indians and males most affected with Vitamin B12 deficiency

SRL Diagnostics, a leading diagnostic chain in India, has released a 3 yearlong study on Vitamin B12 deficiency at PAN India level.  Out of the total samples tested in three years, it was found that around 31 % were affected with deficiency of Vitamin B12.  It was further analyzed that Vitamin B12 deficiency is found to be slightly more common in Indian males (35%) than females (28%).

It was further analyzed that Vitamin B 12 deficiency is prevalent more in older population i.e. at the age of 60+ in both the genders.   Also, Vitamin B12 derangement is seen to be slightlyincreased in the age group of 16-30 and above 45 in both male and female.

Distribution of low Vitamin B12 levels across 4 zones in India 

North Indian population seemed to be the most affected with low Vitamin B12 levels followed by West Indian population. The lease derangement in Vitamin B12 status was found in East and South India. The possible reason for a reduced prevalence of Vitamin B12 deficiency in East and South may be the consumption of Vitamin B12-rich diet mainly animal products.

Dr. Leena Chatterjee, Director SRL Labs and SRL Strategic Initiatives 

said “There is a significant need for reaching out and making people aware of the causes, symptoms, treatment and importance of testing forVitamin B12 levels.

It also aids in the production of DNA and RNA, and the production of neurotransmitters.Vitamin B12 deficiency is common in a vegetarian who don't eat enough eggs or dairy products to meet her/his vitamin B12 needs.”

The symptoms of the Vitamin B12 deficiency are a variety of neurological problems including decreased ability to think, tingling in the feet and hands, extreme fatigue, weakness, irritability or depression, low red blood cells, palpitation and decreased fertility. Some common causes of Vitamin B12 deficiency include poor absorption from the stomach or intestines, decreased intake of animal products .

SRL Study: “1 Out of 4 Indians found having abnormal Thyroid level”

Highest prevalence of thyroid dysfunction in eastern India

SRL Diagnostics, the leading diagnostic chain in India has released a three-year long data mining survey (2013 – 2015) done at a pan India level. The data reveals thatThyroid diseases are one of the commonly occurring endocrine disorders across the length and breadth of the country. It is estimated thatabout 200 million people suffer from thyroid disorders worldwide and amongst those 42 million are in India.

Out of the more than 20 lakh samples screened by SRL for thyroid disorders, 25.3 per cent of the total samples were found with abnormal TSH levels.Women had ahigher percentage of abnormality (26%) as compared to men (24%). This was in agreement with the common findings of various medical research studies. The analysis further showed that the highest prevalence of abnormal TSH values was in the eastern zone of the country (27% of the samples).

Distribution of abnormal Thyroid test results Zone wise Analysis from SRL

Eastern Zone in India had the highest percentage of abnormality at 27 percent, followed by North Zone with 26 percent. Among the zones, southern and Western India showed lower percentages of abnormality at 22 percent each.

Dr. Leena, Director Fortis Labs “There is a significant need for reaching out to the masses and making people aware of the causes, symptoms, treatment and importance of testing for thyroid disorders. SRL Diagnostic’s in-house data analysis on thyroid tests assessed  nationwide data for abnormal thyroid results in both men and women residing in various cities, of diverse occupations, socio-economic status and food habits. ””However our analysis result cannot be extrapolated to infer population prevalence of thyroid illness as for that a nationwide systematic disease survey should be done” she added. 

She further added “The thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones. Excess thyroid hormone results in a condition known as hyperthyroidism. While insufficient hormone production leads to hypothyroidism. Most thyroid problems can be managed well if properly diagnosed and treated.”

Thyroid is a disease which becomes more common with increasing age.Stress is also one of the major factors that adversely affects the thyroid.Abnormal values increase to ~30% as persons reach ages above 40 years.

SRL Diagnostics introduces first ever breakthrough technique to diagnose alcoholic liver

A promising blood based marker test for monitoring and prognosis of alcoholic liver patients

SRL Diagnostics, the leading diagnostic chain in India,for the first time has introduced a blood test to diagnose fibrosis in alcoholic liver.Introduced at a price of Rs.3900, this non –invasive test has high degree of accuracy in diagnosing liver damage due to alcohol.

Dr. Arnab, Deputy General Manager & Senior Research Scientist R& D, SRL Limitedsaid, “We are proud to announce the launch of an innovative blood based test to diagnose the stage of damage to liver due to alcohol consumption. Alcoholic liver disease is the most common cause of liver damage in India, therefore, there is a significant need for reaching out to people and letting them know about the importance to diagnose this disease at an early stage.  The test is price effective and we have launched it for the first time in India.  In this test, few milliliters of blood are collected and multiple tests are performed on the same. The results of the tests are fed into a mathematical algorithm, which gives out the stage of liver damage. “

According to the World Health Organization, 4.5% of Indian men and 0.6% of Indian women aged 15 years or more suffer from alcohol use disorders. Also, 395 men and 196 women out of every million population in India die of liver cirrhosis every year.  According to estimates by SRL, alcoholic Liver Disease is a spectrum of disorders starting with fatty liver, which progresses to hepatitis and if alcohol consumption is unabated, it progresses to cirrhosis in 20% of cases. Approximately, two-thirds of such deaths amongst men and one-thirds amongst women are attributable to alcohol related diseases.

There are various modalities to examine the extent of Liver damage like liver biopsy, imaging based tests, but this is the first blood based test that SRL has introduced to assess the disease.Such a blood based test would be available through the vast network of SRL Laboratories and could prove to be of great value in assessing liver damage due to chronic alcohol consumption.

26% Increase in Celiac Disease Related Samples: SRL Report

North Indians found more prone to Celiac disease

SRL Diagnostics, a leading diagnostic chain in India, has released a 3 year long 2013-2015 data mining surveyon Celiac disease at a pan India level. The data reveals that there has been an increment in the number of samples received for testingat SRL by 26% in the last 3 years.Of the total number of samples received for testing, 18% were found to be abnormal. Celiac disease is slightly more common in Indian males (20%) than females (17%).

Celiac disease (CD) -a chronic immune-mediated inflammation of our gut, is triggered by exposure to gluten (found in wheat, barley, rye, oat, spelt and malt) in food items. It is a condition in which gluten damages the intestines and reduces its ability to absorb food.It affects 1% of the population in many regions of the world. The prevalence of this disease is found in patients with family history of CD or a personal history of autoimmune disease, including that of thyroid, liver, or type 1 diabetes mellitus. However a pre-requisite for Celiac Disease is Gluten Sensitivity. At an early stage the disease remains as Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, but if not taken care of, slowly progresses to overt Celiac Disease.

Distribution of abnormal celiac disease results – Zone wise Analysis from SRL

Northern Zone had highest percentage of abnormality with 20 percent followed by western Zone with 17 percent. Among the zones, southern and eastern India showed the lowest percentage of abnormality with 8 % and 15% respectively.

Dr. Deepa Dave, Director, lab operations “There is a significant need for reaching out and making people aware of the causes, symptoms, treatment and importance of testing for celiac disease. SRL Diagnostics’ in-house data analysis on celiac tests assesses the nationwide abnormalities in test results in both the genders residing in various cities representing diverse geographic origin, occupation, and socio-economic status and food habits. ”

She further added “The population in North India showed a higher frequency (20%) of positive test reports for Celiac Disease than in any other zones. This can be due to high consumption of gluten-rich food by the people residing in this zone. South Indian population seems to be the least affected by gluten sensitivity (8%) and this observationcorrelates well with theirdiet, which is rice based. ”

As per SRL’s analysis of the positive samples,children in the 0 to 10 yearsage group were seen to be the most affected inall fourzones of India. Although Celiac Disease can be confirmed through an endoscopic biopsy taken from the gut, serologic tests in CD should be done as a first step in individualswith symptoms suggestive of CD.
