Lifestyle Diseases

Dr. Akshya PurohitGeneral Physician • 17 Years Exp.MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MD - General Medicine

Hello everybody!

I am Dr. Akshay Purohit, I am MBBS MD Physician and today as a promotional video, I would like to discuss something about lifestyle diseases. You know it’s a burning topic right now, Lifestyle Diseases, how to change lifestyle? What are lifestyle diseases? Everybody is speaking about it, everybody is thinking about it, discussing with the doctors but nobody is taking any concrete action against lifestyle diseases. The issue about lifestyle diseases is people are half educated about it. People know about lifestyle diseases but they just know it as a name jaise naam pata hai ki diabetes hojaegi, BP badh jaega, lipid ki problem hojaegi but see as an old saying in English ki “Little knowledge is very dangerous”. So basically, this is little knowledge only. We as an Indian, should always see as an Indian perspective of lifestyle diseases. Apko pata hai WHO jo ki World Health Organization hai jo ki basically doctors ko or general public ko guide krti hai ki aage future me kya disease k trends honge, usne bola hai ki near future me India will be the Capital of lifestyle diseases in the world, largest number of incidences will be from India only.

So, what can we do regarding this thing? One thing which we can effectively do is know what are the lifestyle diseases and be cautious against them. See there are basically 5 lifestyle diseases: Diabetes, hypertension, heart-related disease, obesity and cancer. Cancer ko last me isilye rakha hua hai kyunki cancer me bahut sari cheezein ajaengi they are multifactorial. To inki zada detail me jaane ki zarurt ni hai, aap sabko pata hai diabetes k bare me, BP k bare me, lipid k bare me, obesity k bare me, cancer k bare me. Meri jaankari bus itna he dene ka maksad tha ki inke bare me adhi knowledge na rakhein. Ye lifestyle se judi bimariyan hai, agar hum lifestyle he theek karlenge to ye theek hojaengi. Basic crux of the management is: improving our lifestyle, improving stress management, improving dietary things. Not just continuously run about the drugs. Dawaiyon se isme bahut zada farak ni padne vala.

Agar overt disease hogyi, koi practical manifestation disease ki agyi, complication agyi, tbhi dawai khana hai, nahi to hum apni lifestyle theek karke bhi inse bacha jaa sakta hai. So, one thing we should remember is don’t run about drugs. Dawaiyon k peeche na bhagein. Stress management karein, stress management k liye sports activities or physical activities sbse best hai mere hisab se. Jo aajkal chalra hai Yoga, meditation; I don’t think practically nobody knows about, anybody knows about these Yoga and meditation. They are just preaching only. Unko zada jankari nahi hai bus agar hum physical activity or thoda sa sports activity badha lenge to kafi kuch stress kam hojaega.

Don’t run about unnecessary expectations from life like expecting ye bhi hai, gadi bhi, bangla bhi, sab bhi. Yeh sab bhi reason known hai, simple si life jijiye, sab kuch theek hojaega or bhi sari details hai but due to time constraint, unko discuss yaha nahi kia ja sakta. Lekin itna mai zarur bolna chahunga end me ki lifestyle diseases se cope up karna ka tareeka, uski kunji aapke hath me he hai, doctor k pass zada ni hai, aap he use theek kar sakte hai. Practically koi bimari samne aagyi, doctor se paramarsh lein, dawai lein, otherwise contact karein, mai apko guide karunga ki aage usko kaise deal karna hai. See, I am always there for you, for your help and for any practical causes, any doubts you can always discuss with me.
