    An alarming report by Indus Health Plus has pointed out that 35 – 40 percent of working population in Delhi is suffering from hypertension and diabetes which leads to risk of heart diseases by 4 – 6 percent. The trend can be due to high sugar consumption as high sugar levels can lead to deposition of fatty materials which leads to narrowing of arteries. This has led to an increased number of artery blockages and risking young people who are 25 – 35 years to obesity and heart diseases.

    “20 percent women in the age bracket of 35-50 years and 16 percent men in the age bracket of 30-50 years have been observed with Vitamin B12 deficiency which increases the risk of heart diseases. Stress is one of the key factors contributing to heart diseases amongst working population,” Mr. Amol Naikawadi, Preventive Healthcare Specialist and JMD Indus Health Plus said.

    Due to heavy traffic and industrialization, the population in Delhi is exposed to smoke and therefore the risk of heart related problems increases. The risk increases 5% for people working in industrial areas, factories etc. that emits smoke.

    10 percent of the urban population and almost 7 percent of the rural population from Delhi have been observed with diabetes induced heart diseases. There has been an increase of 6% compared to last year in terms of heart disease cases from semi urban and rural parts of Delhi. 40% of the population was not aware of the silent symptoms of heart diseases and that diabetes is one of potential killer related to heart ailments.

    “This is a serious concern and so this World Heart Day our aim is to educate people to keep heart healthy through regular exercise, playing outdoor sports, eating balanced diet and maintaining ideal body weight. Besides lifestyle modification, preventive health check-ups and timely screenings are very useful in early detection of illnesses and risk factors” added Mr. Naikawadi.
