Lack of physical activity and lesser intake of fruits are taking a toll on the health of the residents of Punjab and making them more prone to non-communicable diseases (NCD) like obesity, hypertension, diabetes, etc, revealed a survey conducted by the PGIMER in some pockets of Punjab.

.

In 2014-2015, a total of 5,127 people in the age-group of 18-69 years were examined in a state-wide survey of NCD risk factors  mainly diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer and chronic lung diseases  carried out by the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in association with Government Medical Colleges at Amritsar, Patiala, Faridkot, and Christian Medical College, Ludhiana.

.

The study demonstrated Punjab has a particularly high prevalence of NCD risk factors, present uniformly without any significant difference by gender or location. Punjab is the first state in the country to undertake this type of survey in the last decade, mentions the report submitted by the department of community medicine, PGIMER, to Vini Mahajan, principal secretary, health and family welfare, Punjab, on Friday.

.

Risk indicators high but people less concerned

.

The survey found the large section (80%) of the surveyed population was suffering from the belly fat problem.

.

Around 41% respondents were overweight or obese, and if waist circumference is considered, more than 80% were found overweight with central obesity (belly fat). Prevalence is comparable to obesity levels in many developed countries, mentions the report.

.

It was also found that majority of people were not indulged in physical activities, which could be a reason behind them being obese. About one third (31%) having low physical activity, with three forth of population not doing vigorous activity, points towards a growing epidemic of overweight and obesity, stated the report.

.

The survey also links insufficient physical activity with high prevalence of hypertension.
