GURUGRAM: 31 police officials were screened in a free Multi-specialty Health Camp organized by Columbia Asia Hospital, Gurugram. The camp was organised at Sector 5 Police Station, Gurugram.
In the camp, police officials got free tests done for blood pressure, diabetes, heart screening, normal checkups, bone checkup, weight, height, dental checkup and BMI, etc.
Dr. Amit Kumar, Cardiologist, Columbia Asia Hospital, said, “This camp comes out as a great move, keeping in mind the present upsurge in NCDs in India. NCDs dominate the list of top causes of death in India. Heart disease is among the top on the list of deaths caused due to NCD’s.”
“Currently, overweight and obesity are the biggest health problems in India. The main causes of this problem are lack of physical activity and high intake of processed food. Overweight individuals usually show abnormal heart function, and obesity is an independent risk factor for diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes,” said Dr Kumar.
“Exercise routines are the basis of treatment for most medical conditions whether one is on medicines or not,” added Dr Kumar.
