Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)
(Diabetes, Hypertension & Osteoarthritis etc.)
The World Health Organization estimates that NCDs are the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for 60 percent of deaths in all humans. NCDs can refer to chronic diseases which last for long periods of time and progress slowly. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) include a range of chronic conditions, including Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, Kidneys disease, Hypertension, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Cataracts, Cancer as well as Alzheimer’s and Dementias and others etc.
The rise of NCDs has been driven by these major risk factors: tobacco use, physical inactivity, unhealthy diet, and the harmful use of alcohol which affects to Metabolic/Physiological changes like overweight/obesity, raised blood glucose, Hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels) and Hyperlipidemia (high levels of fat in the blood).
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder and people need to detect it as early as possible because high sugar levels due to diabetes can cause a lot of harm to the body and several vital organs.
The risk factor of Type 2 diabetes is being overweight or obese and cannot make insulin (Type I Diabetes). Insulin doesn’t work in the body (Type II Diabetes)
Blood pressure is the measure of the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls and when an individual consistently has a blood pressure reading over 140/90. High BP can be caused by diabetes, smoking, stress, excessive salt intake, obesity or Kidney disease etc.
Normal: Less than 120 over 80 (120/80)
Elevated: 120-129/less than 80
Stage 1 high blood pressure: 130-139/80-89
Stage 2 high blood pressure: 140 and above/90 and above
Hypertension crisis: higher than 180/higher than 120.
This condition causes a decrease in bone mass which can make the bones brittle or bone loss and at higher risk for damage or deterioration of bone structure as people age. For aging men, sex steroid deficiency also appears to be a major factor in age-related osteoporosis and around 80 percent of people who have osteoporosis are women.
Osteoporosis can be minimized and osteoporosis prevented through adequate nutrition, physical activity, and, if necessary and appropriate treatment.
