Increasing Prevalence of Diseases in India


Unhealthy diet, sedentary lifestyle and alcohol consumption have led to a sharp rise in the number of diseases in India.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 4 Indians are at risk of dying from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like heart diseases, lung & respiratory diseases, high blood pressure and Cancers, before they turn 70!

Communicable diseases like cholera, malaria and polio have been replaced by lifestyle diseases.

Do you know that heart diseases have become the number one cause of death in India?  It is shocking, but true! Not only heart diseases, but thyroid and kidney related diseases are also increasing day by day.  According to the reports by Indian Thyroid Society, 1 in every 10 adults suffer from hypothyroidism in India, and 1 in 10 adults also suffer from chronic kidney disease, according to Sanjay K. Agarwal, Head of Nephrology, AIIMS.

Younger lot is experiencing more and more diseases because of the lifestyle they are living, and also because younger people hardly go for preventive check-ups in India.

The earlier the disease is diagnosed, the easier the treatment becomes! So, to avoid such diseases, people must go for preventive check-ups and take proper cautions.
