The session was addressed by Dr. Gunjan Kapoor, Director, Interventional Cardiology and Dr. Hemi Soneja, Sr. Consultant, Lifestyle Management who briefed the audience about the causes, effects, preventive measures, myths and treatment about the diseases.
Addressing the session Dr. Gunjan Kapoor said, “We always think that all heart related diseases occur after the age of 50 but truth is heart disease strikes Indians almost 33% times earlier than their age. Almost 50% of all heart attacks in Indian men occur under the age of 50 years and 25% under 40 years of age. One third of Indians have deadly cholesterol which increases the chances of getting a heart disease even at a young age.”
“Number one cause of mortality and a silent epidemic among Indians are the heart diseases. India accounts for approximately 60% of the world’s heart disease burden. We need to understand that we Indians are already genetically pre- disposed to such diseases and due to the change in lifestyle as well the cases of heart related diseases are increasing even at a young age”, Dr. Kapoor added.
Highlighting the importance of a healthy lifestyle, Dr. Hemi Soneja said, “Everyday we see patients suffering from health issues related to overweight, obesity, stress, mental exhaustion, illness etc. which majorly accounts for not having a healthy lifestyle. One can prevent from the root cause of the diseases by following a healthy diet with a basic exercise pattern regularly. Healthy lifestyle is a key to a happy life- that is the mantra.”
