Hyderabad is becoming a hub for diabetes and BP diseases. A recent study found that only 19% of people in the city are healthy without BP. Unhealthy eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle have been linked to the condition. Health Minister Harish Rao on Tuesday released a study report by the Cardiological Society of India, Global Hospital, and the National Institute of Nutrition. 


He said the situation was due to people neglecting their health, work stress, and reduced physical activity. Harish warns that BP and sugar can be fatal if care is not taken. Everyone over the age of 30 is advised to undergo BP and sugar tests and to take regular medication if diagnosed. He congratulated the doctors who conducted the survey.


The survey was conducted on 9,000 people aged 26 to 50 in Greater Hyderabad. Of these, 5,000 were analyzed and the report was released. Of these 5,000, 40.7 percent were diagnosed with BP and 39.8 percent were diagnosed with BP (pre-hypertension). Pre-hypertension is when the systolic pressure is between 120–139 and the diastolic pressure is between 80–89. 


BP was found to be normal only in 19.5% of people. Dr. Sai Sudhakar, Joint Secretary, Telangana Division, Cardiological Society of India, said that while only 25 percent of the people in the study before Corona had BP, now it has reached 40 percent. Corona is causing people to suffer from stress and illness due to lifestyle changes, not being able to leave home in the name of work from home, bad eating habits, obesity, overwork hours, financial hardship, and job loss. He revealed that 70 percent of the people in the city are overweight.
