Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases, cancer, giddiness are some of the many lifestyle diseases that I regularly help patients with. Many of these conditions have their genesis in unhealthy lifestyle habits like sitting long hours, lack of exercise, poor eating habits, poor sleep timings, excessive stress, etc and hence are called ‘lifestyle disorders’. Depending on the stage or extent of disease, you may or may not be on medicines. But lifestyle modifications are important for optimum treatment at every stage of these illnesses. I scientifically address the root cause of these diseases i.e the unhealthy habits, and prescribe exercise as part of the medicines. This helps in achieving disease control and improving quality of life. Since these medical conditions lead to a compromised physical capability of the body functions, exercise in these conditions is best supervised by a specialist like an Exercise Medicine Physician who has knowledge about the disease condition and exercise physiology, effect of medicines on body and exercise and can encourage the patient into a self sufficient healthy life.
