Erratic Lifestyle Affects 90% of Mumbai Police With Helicopylori Bacterial Infection

Stomach related illness due to Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection has become common among police officials in Mumbai, India.

Drinking impure water, long gap between meals, inadequate sleep and long working hours might be the possible reasons for 90% of Mumbai policemen to suffer from stomach-related problems, shows a survey conducted among 250 policemen.

A camp was organized by Baldota Institute of Digestive Science (BIDS) of the Global Hospital and state-run JJ Hospital. Endoscopy was done on 125 policemen, out which, 90% had H-pylori.

The results showed that most policemen drink impure water, leading to a high rate of H. pylori infection in their stomach. H. pylori is a bacteria which enters the body through the digestive tract.

Seventy percent of the police force did not get adequate sleep and there was a huge gap between two meals. Sixty-five percent of the policemen were obese.

Dr. Amit Maydeo, Chairman of BIDS said, "The health problems, if not addressed timely, can be disastrous in the long run. All the personnel who have health problems have been put on medication and those who need more evaluation and further treatment have been asked to come for a follow-up. This is being done free of cost. We are going to chalk out a health guideline for the Mumbai police force. It is important that those who protect and guard us are in good shape," said Dr Maydeo.
