According to the National Family Health Survey, 13 percent of women and 9 percent of men in India are overweight or obese. In the recent times, there is an increasing incidence of diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, cardio vascular diseases, behavioral problems, high cholesterol, obesity affecting even the younger people. Despite increasing health awareness, more than half of the people in metro cities suffer from diabetes. The changed living habits, sedentary lifestyle and competitive living are the main culprits coming in the way of golden rules of good living. People who fall victims to this new phenomenon get trapped with certain diseases at a younger age. These are called lifestyle disorders because of the reason that the diseases associated with this are limited to people who adopt unhealthy and inappropriate lifestyles. To address this issue and make younger people aware about importance of proper diet and lifestyle, SDMH had taken an initiative to educate school and college children. This week sessions on “Life Style & Health” and “Nutrition for Good Health” was organised by SDMH where Dr. Harsh Udawat, Consultant Dept. of Gastroenterology and Dr. Medhavi Gautam, Head Dietetics Dept., gave useful information for leading a healthier life in Schools.
