CHENNAI SCHOOL KIDS TO BE SCREENED FOR DIABETES, OBESITY

06/03/2010


CHENNAI: Students of at least 50 schools in the city — private, aided and public — will be screened by a group of doctors for various lifestyle-related disorders, including obesity, hypertension and diabetes. The study will begin in the coming academic year, senior endocrinologist Dr Usha Sriram said here on Friday. 
 
“The screening will include clinical investigations of blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and lipid profile. We will also check if they have the right height and weight. There will be detailed interviews with students, where we will record their eating habits, active hours (playing) and a bit of their family medical history,” she said. 
 
The study will be followed up with comprehensive recommendations for students. “If they are found to have any disorder, medicines will be prescribed. For others, we will give advice on diet and exercise. We will repeat the tests after 6 months or one year to see if there is a change due to lifestyle modification,” she said.
Comment from DR.PRAVEEN RAMACHANDRA:
 
Diabetes type 2 and obesity is the directly the result of changing food habits which encourages consumption of empty calories.....which are very rich in carbohydrates and bad fats.....the study intended is is useful in finding out the amount or the gravity of the situation in urban kids...lets look forward to its results so that a guideline for indian urban kids could be formulated to prevent obesity and diabetes
