Lifestyle diseases have started taking the city in their grip. And
alarmingly, they are affecting people at a much younger age. Experts suggest proper meal and regular physical exercises to keep diseases like hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, etc., at bay.
Given the increasing sedentary lifestyle among the urban population, obesity is on the rise. And, health experts say that in the days to come, more people are likely to gain the flab. Since obesity leads to other ailments, doctors feel it should be checked right at the beginning.
According to estimates, heart diseases are continuously increasing at a rate of 15% annually with more and more people visiting hospitals. The only good sign, experts say, is that people are seeking medical advice on time which may save them from serious consequences. In most cases of heart ailments, patients are under the age of 45 years.
As far as arthritis is concerned, inert lifestyle is said to be the main cause. Also, more and more youngsters are beginning to show the symptoms of the disease at an early age. Lack of physical activity and bad eating habits are adding to the problem. Spondylosis (neck pain and backache), and osteoporosis (weak bone) are other diseases which are gradually becoming common.
"Apart from orthopaedic problems, stomach ailments too have seen a rise in recent times," says Dr VK Srivastava. High calorie, fried, fatty food, which are a hit with people these days, along with a hurry-worry modern day lifestyle, are causing an alarming increase in gastro-intestinal disorders, he added.
Similarly, the number of patients suffering from hypertension is also rapidly increased. According to medical experts, in the last one decade there has been a three fold increase in hypertension cases. About 10 per cent of victims belong to the age group of 30-40 year.
