 Sedentary Lifestyle Increases Risk of Diabetes in Young Women

A new study conducted by researchers at Indus Health Plus suggests that sedentary lifestyle and wrong eating habits were the reason behind high risk of diabetes among young women between 30 and 35 years of age.

The researchers said that majority of the people in Western India included a high intake of fried food in their diets and ate almost no fruit while the consumption of oil, ghee and butter is also high.

The researchers said that around 40 million of the world's 371 million diabetics live in India, adding that men and women between 40 and 45 years of age had the highest levels of the condition in the country.

"Our Abnormality Report validates the rapid growth of diabetes which is not only prevalent in adults but is beginning to affect the younger generation, especially women in India. Lifestyle characterised by unhealthy nutrition, reduced physical activity and tobacco consumption has increased the risk factor of diabetes. If left untreated or uncontrolled, diabetes can lead to blindness, cardiovascular diseases and kidney failure. Timely and regular check-up can reduce the risk of diabetes", the Joint Managing Director, Indus Health Plus, Amol Naikawadi said.
