Managing Your Health During The Festive Season with OMRON
Winter Is Coming! And it brings health challenges with it.
Commencing from autumn until winter, India apparently observes the longest period of festivities back-to-back. Besides bringing joy and breaking the mundane routine laden with stress and anxiety, these 4-5 months are also often compounded with the risks of lifestyle diseases or attacks happening from existing chronic conditions. 1
During the festivities, every Indian binge-eats and consumes sweets that are highly saturated and lead to an alarmingly high calorie intake. This often aggravates distinct health issues which can turn chronic and even fatal in the long run. Extensive travelling and the use of fireworks also exposes people to dangerous levels of pollution triggering respiratory conditions. Alcohol consumption and long hours of celebration further deteriorates the condition.
A third-party survey report published by The Times Of India shows that respiratory conditions and other allergies rise significantly during and after Diwali.2 The onset of winter seasons aggravates seasonal allergies like flu, cough, wheezing, nasal congestion, throat infection and various respiratory challenges. Dr. Purushotam Lal, Chairman of Metro Hospitals And Heart Institute shares with IANS that people with lifestyle disorders like hypertension, diabetes, and respiratory conditions queue up outside clinics by simply not sticking to the precautions advised by healthcare experts.3 High calorie intake leads to weight gain proving to be harmful for people with chronic conditions such as blood pleasure, diabetes, etc. Besides, the changing weather conditions also give rise to seasonal allergies like flu, cough, wheezing, nasal congestion, throat infection, and so on.
Proactive Approach To Stay Prepared For Life
Non-communicable diseases (including CVDS and respiratory conditions) are the leading causes of death worldwide. 3 Most of these non-communicable diseases can be prevented as per WHO.4 The way is to adopt a proactive approach. Altering day-to-day poor lifestyle patterns with conscious behavioral choices such as healthy eating, exercising, avoiding alcohol or smoking, and taking prescribed medicines on-time can go a long-way in living a healthy life. However, the most important pillar in this approach of proactiveness is consistent health monitoring.
The past and current year has proven particularly challenging with regards to the conventional approach of regular health checkups at clinics and hospitals. Fortunately enough, e-healthcare is gaining prominence across the country as a successful alternative to one-to-one doctor consultations. Remote health monitoring lies at the very core of e-healthcare. It is also an affordable solution to not only meet the ever increasing demand for healthcare services but also to reduce the burden on it.
Remote healthcare monitoring empowers patients to not only keep a tab on their health but also to digitally share their health statistics for assessment by experts. Early diagnosis, preventive measures, and course of treatment can be decided for patients with the data available in hand.
OMRON is a pioneer in home health monitoring products and assessing the impact that e-consultation can bring in the current scenario, hosts a comprehensive range of home healthcare devices. These devices help users in keeping a track of their overall body health.
