In today’s technologically advanced world, where everything is available at our fingertips, it is easy for us to order food or get groceries without stepping out of our homes. However, this is one of the reasons for our sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy habits. This lifestyle change is the primary cause of the ever-increasing non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, and chronic lung and cardiovascular diseases. In India, these NCDs contribute to close to 70% of cases of mortalities.
1 in 10 Indians is estimated to suffer from an NCD, and this frequency is gradually increasing among adults between the age group of 25-55. It showcases the poor lifestyle choice made in a country with over 65 percent of its population under 35 years. According to the World Economic Forum, if rapid remedial action is not taken, by 2030, the world could lose over 30 trillion dollars, and about 36 million people will die every year due to NCDs.
All is not lost. With timely detection and the correct management of these diseases, we can achieve better outcomes and lower the risk of severe complications and premature health events, in some cases, fully curable. Therefore, a personalized plan is the need of the hour. These customized plans cater to every individual’s unique health needs as each body varies in body constitution, lifestyle, habits, and family history. It is also evident that those at different levels and life stages typically face other health challenges.
