We often ignore our health trying to keep up with the fast pace of today’s day-to-day busy life. Did you know what would cost you for ignoring your health? Ignoring your health is like leaving the iron to wear out and rust. Even the air in the metro cities is endemic with health risks. Diabetes, abnormal blood pressure and cardiac problems have become common health issues of India.
Diseases that need more awareness in Delhi in 2018 and why?
According to a survey, cardiovascular and chronic respiratory diseases were the highest killers in Delhi. In Delhi, non-communicable diseases comprised 61.2% of the total disease burden. The top causes were ischaemic heart disease (9.6%), iron deficiency anaemia (3.4%), COPD (3.4%) and diabetes (3.2%). Delhi, the national capital, the top causes for deaths was stated as lower respiratory infections (7.4%), diarrhoea diseases (6.9%) and preterm birth complications (5.7%) in late 1990’s. According to the report by Indian express, during this period, Ischaemic heart disease was at fifth position. This clearly shows the shift in the pattern of changing lifestyle and the burden of diseases in Delhi.
The city witnesses one of the worst phase of air pollution currently, and the pollution of Delhi is world news today. This has become a major reason behind many fatal and deadly diseases like cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases and lower respiratory infections. Air pollution causes 3,000 premature deaths in Delhi every year, which further calculated means eight deaths a day. It is an alarming event in Delhi and it is high time the city gets control over its pollution problems.
The report also revealed that in the age group of 40-69 years, which constituted 41.2% of total deaths, the top causes of death were cardiovascular disease, COPD and cirrhosis. In the working professional age group of 15-39 years, the top causes were cardiovascular disease, transport injuries and neurological disorders. One in every third child in Delhi has reduced lung function and high tendency for increased pulmonary haemorrhage. These are the fatal effects of air pollution in Delhi and needs immediate attention.

Elderly and senior citizen population of Delhi
An age group of 60 plus is considered to be “Senior Citizen” in India. A report released by the United Nations Population Fund and HelpAge India states that the number of elderly persons is expected to grow to 173 million by 2026. A paper by Agewell Research & Advocacy Centre called “Comprehensive Study on Status of Older Persons” states that Delhi –NCR has total population of over more than 2 crore and more than 8% of the total Delhi & NCR population consists of older persons, that is 60+. Delhi alone has elderly population of more than 12 lakhs.
With fast changing socio-economic and demographic scenarios, the trend of nuclear families and the changing traditional value system has also changed the way people look at elders today. All this has forced the aged group to migrate to the Old Age homes. The major reason for their migration was mentioned that these people felt isolated in their present families as they could not adapt themselves to the changing situations. As age catches, people tend to lose the strength they possessed in their young age. Slowly, ailments start showing up that may turn into deadly and fatal diseases in these older people. With the advancement of medical science and comfortable lifestyle, a 60 year old can live 20 more years with a greater life expectancy. But with the increased life expectancy, maintaining good health in old age is a major problem. Medical expense is the major expenditure in Old Age.

Centuries ago, the only way to make a positive diagnosis to find out neurological disorders was to perform an autopsy after the patient died. But thanks to the researchers for their intensive research, that has helped the doctors with some commanding tools that can see inside the living brain and observe nervous system activity as it occurs. This has also helped the doctors to analyze diseases and to test how well a particular treatment may be working. This is no doubt challenging. But researchers have been able to develop tools that are really helpful in diagnosis disorders of the brain.
To identify the disorders associated with the brain, the doctor initially performs a neurological examination that assesses motor and sensory skills, the functioning of cranial nerves, vision, hearing and speech, coordination and balance, psychological status and behavioral and mood changes.
Depending on the neurological exam and other supportive tests the doctors may advice for one or more diagnostic tests to conclude on the suspected neurological disorder. Few diagnostic tests may involve either nuclear medicine imaging using very small amounts of radioactive materials or just a high-end diagnostic imaging using magnets and electrical charges. Few other tests include:
- Angiography (test used to detect blockages of the arteries or veins)
- Biopsy (removal and examination of a small piece of tissue from the body/Brain)
- Brain scans like CT, MRI, PET and Neurosonography(ultrasound of the brain and spinal column)
- Cerebrospinal fluid analysis(removal of a small amount of the fluid that protects the brain and spinal cord)
- Electroencephalography (monitors brain activity through the skull)
- Evoked potentials(measure the electrical signals to the brain generated by hearing, touch, or sight)
- A polysomnogram(measures brain and body activity during sleep).
All these neurological tests help in diagnosing variety of brain disorders and diseases. Diseases like brain and spinal cord tumors, eye disease, inflammation, infection, and vascular irregularities that may lead to stroke, diseased tissues, measures cellular and/or tissue metabolism, seizure disorders, degenerative diseases like Huntington’s disease, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and all forms of dementia, records brain waves, hydrocephalus (build-up of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain), and vascular problems, hemorrhage and more can be easily diagnosed using these above mentioned test tools.
Evoked potentials assess high-frequency hearing loss, damage to the acoustic nerve and auditory pathways in the brainstem, and detect acoustic neuromas, loss of vision from optic nerve damage caused by multiple sclerosis, and other degenerating diseases.
By undergoing, full body checkup blood tests may help you in figuring out the brain related problems at the earliest. If you have any existing problems, you may need to go for an MRI, CT, PET-CT based on your physician suggestion.
