Metabolic Clinic - Diabetes and Obesity Center of Excellence

Overview

“We will walk the path with you”

Metabolic Syndrome is a group of risk factors such as increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels that occur together, increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Obesity is a 21st century global social epidemic and Diabetes is fast gaining the status of a potential epidemic in India. Indians tend to put on weight in very early adulthood due to genetic preponderance, stress, poor work life balance, lack of sleep, lack of exercise and bad food habits. There is growing number of overweight and obese individuals and data is alarming with 3 out of 4 urban Indians being overweight and atleast 50% being obese. Until recently, India had more diabetics than any other country in the world, according to the International Diabetes Foundation. The number of diabetes patients is likely to rise to 101 million in India by 2030, estimates the World Health Organisation (WHO). Obesity, to a large extent is the driving force for serious diet-related non-communicable diseases, including diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke. Its health consequences range from increased risk of premature death to serious chronic conditions that reduce the overall quality of life.
 
A multidisciplinary approach is needed to not only decrease the prevalence of obesity and diabetes, but also to decrease the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS), high blood pressure and dyslipidemia whilst promoting improved quality of life and health.
