Stressful life in Mumbai
India, with its developing cities and with the uncontrolled urbanization and modernization, the present-day lifestyle comes with its own set of challenges. “The grass is always greener at the other side”, people always think a metro life is so fascinating and people living there have a better life. But that’s not really true. The life in a metropolitan is not as pleasant as it seems to be. With all the fashionable spending and living, anxiety and stress come complimentary. “Stress” defines “N” number of problems people face in Mumbai and cannot be defined with a rigid definition. The amount of stress varies from person to person and is affected by the innumerable circumstances. Factors differ, for example the environment in which a person lives also plays an important role that affect the physical and psychological health of an individual.
Balancing professional commitments, managing social life, basically the work-life balance, housewives trying to cope with the limited monetary deadlines, working mothers trying to maintain the time divided between family and work, senior citizens trying to meet the healthcare needs with their lifetime savings, all these set of people face their own challenges resulting in stress. The study, conducted by Lybrate, an online doctor consultation platform, revealed that nearly 60% of working professionals suffer from stress in Tier I cities and in Mumbai 31% working professionals are stress targeted in Mumbai. When examined, the reasons that came forward were tight deadlines, missing targets, coping with pressure, office politics, long working hours, indifferent and unsupportive managers and work-life balance. Studies have shown that constant stress, or `cumulative trauma disorder’, can lead to chronic ill-health.
Major killer Disease in Mumbai
With the demanding work schedules and unstable environmental changes, it’s not surprising that lifestyle sicknesses continue to be Mumbai’s most fatal killer. According to a RTI query, coronary heart diseases have topped the list of causes for mortality, killing almost four lakh people due to heart-related dysfunctions over the years and this is recorded for the 15th year in a row. After the heart disease, cancer stands the second reason for disability and death in Mumbai. A cardiologist from Mumbai, Dr. Brian Pinto, says “In fact, besides lifestyle, there is tremendous environmental stress and pollution in the city. Nanoparticles and gaseous fumes, which are emitted from vehicles or other sources, are also contributing to an increase in the risk of coronary artery disease. For youngsters, psychosocial stress to earn and commute is adding to the stress. Smoking, of course, remains a major underlying cause of cancer and heart ailments.”
A nephrologist from KEM Hospital in Parel said, “Indians are already at a higher risk of developing kidney diseases because of the surge in the number of patients suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure,” and with this diseases of the kidney and liver too have shown a sharp increase leading to deaths due to kidney failures. With the lifestyle changes, the shift in the drinking habits of men and women in the city is majorly attributed to the rise in the lifestyle diseases like chronic liver disease and cirrhosis deaths. In Mumbai, common diseases in humans are bacterial diseases, rheumatic heart disease, congenital heart disease, coronary heart disease, skin diseases, liver disease, nervous system diseases.
For the fact, all these diseases are preventable to a great extent. But ”how?” is the question.
How can Master health check-up help fight these killer diseases?
Diseases affect everyone irrespective of age, gender or place. As we see above, Mumbaikars are affected largely by heart diseases, followed by cancer, diabetes, kidney and liver diseases. Reasons being many, the sedentary lifestyle, stagnant professional life, environment and many more, but all these are not in our control. What is in our control is our health. All these diseases can be prevented to a greater extent by getting ourselves checked regularly, analyzing the risk factors that may indicate certain illnesses in near future. This does not mean that a person with the risk factors is sure to catch these diseases, but yes, “he is at risk!”
The best way to detect diseases early and take the necessary steps to prevent them is to get a regular whole body master check-up done, popularly known as annual health check-ups.

Other aspects of a Master health check-up that could help a common man?
Master health check-ups have immense benefits. Apples look really appealing and tasty with the red color they carry, but sometimes these same appealing and tasty looking apples may be rotten from within. Similarly, what looks healthy from outside may not always be healthy from inside. In the busy lifestyle a common man leads, many times we tend to overlook some symptoms and most of the times people may even not be aware that few small sicknesses may be alarming symptoms of few deadly diseases. The awareness about master health check-ups needs to be spread all over so that more and more people may understand the importance of this full body check-up and how this small step was taken can save a lot on the treatment costs.
Heart diseases, Cancer, and diabetes are diseases that are known to be genetic, heredity and people with a family history of these diseases are at a higher risk. Heart diseases and diabetes can be detected early with few simple blood tests and diseases like Cancer needs to be detected as early as possible for a cure. We should understand by now that early detection leads to early diagnosis and early diagnosis means early cure and recovery. Early detection of diseases makes sure that you get treated better and at a lower cost.
There are many families in Mumbai which depend on a single salary of one working man, and if this man is not healthy the condition of the family is beyond imagination. These days, many master health check-ups come under the coverage of “diagnosis and treatment costs” provided by insurance companies. Besides this, you can also avail a tax exemption from income tax under 80D. Keeping monetary benefits aside, a healthy life is not just important for you, but also for the people who depend on you.
Is a preventive health checkup necessary for a 26 to 28 year-old man?
Mumbai is populated with people of all the ages. It accounts almost 1% of entire country’s population and the population of Mumbai is growing faster than any other city in India. The city, popularly known as the financial and entertainment capital of India has the maximum working population. The youngsters aged between 26 and 35, the working population is the one which needs the master check-up the most. As mentioned above, 31% of the working population of Mumbai is stress affected and is at a higher risk of chronic illnesses.
Stress is something people are not too comfortable talking about. But it is very important to vent out frustration or stifling emotions in a healthy way. “Unattended stressful feelings or emotions can lead to major health problems in the long run,” said the Founder & CEO, Lybrate, Mr. Saurabh Arora. Stress can impact health in many ways from early aging, weight gain to heart problems. Also, this is the age group that leads a sedentary lifestyle. All this shows that they are at a higher risk of being affected by the chronic diseases and will need regular full body check-up annually. A healthy life will help them build a healthy career as well. Only a healthy body is active and can cope up with the fast pace of life in Mumbai.
