NEW DELHI: It has been seen that most people those are either crossing the middle-aged or have oldest, they are suffering from Diabetes and Hypertension in India. It means, these type of diseases generally come in human life when they to be in middle age or old, the researcher said on Monday.
Pascal Geldsetzer of Harvard University and his colleagues collected health data from 1,320,555 adults across India between 2012 and 2014, which included plasma glucose and blood pressure measurements.
Overall, it has been seen that the diabetes expansiveness was 6.1 percent for women and 6.5 percent for men, while hypertension expansiveness was 20 percent for women and 24.5 percent for men, with marked variation among states.
Household wealth and towny location were positively associated with both conditions, and the prevalence of diabetes and hypertension among middle-aged adults in the poorest households in rural areas was also high.
Especially, Hypertension was higher among adults under the age of 45 than previously estimated and was higher than in Central and Eastern Europe, the region previously estimated to have the highest rates for young adults.
“Understanding how diabetes and hypertension prevalence varies within a country as large as India is essential for targeting of prevention, screening, and treatment services,” Geldsetzer said in a Harvard press release.
” India has needed to awareness on these two dangerous diseases who is just like silent killers as well as other non-communicable diseases to reduce the burden of preventable premature morbidity and mortality,” Ashish Awasthi, co-author of the new study said in the press release.
