Health problems can develop due to a variety of causes, and it is well worth avoiding those you can. A good example of health problems that you can avoid are lifestyle diseases. These are ailments that you develop due to unhealthy lifestyle habits and can lead to severe health conditions. 

For instance, living on an unhealthy diet can result in obesity, which has further harmful effects on your heart. Moreover, treatment for serious health problems is expensive, with costs amounting to lakhs in private hospitals. However, you can address health problems in India without compromise and have one less thing to worry about by using the Bajaj Finserv Digital Health EMI Network Card. This health card gives you the opportunity to convert your medical bills into affordable No Cost EMIs. To understand how you can address lifestyle health issues with the card, read on. 


Common health problems and the treatment required


Obesity

Obesity is a health problem that plagues both children and adults alike. In urban India, this disease is particularly prevalent due to the ease of access to high-calorie foods and a sedentary lifestyle. A multi-city survey conducted in 2018 found that almost 70% of metro city residents were either obese or overweight. Common ailments resulting due to obesity include breathing difficulties, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and high blood pressure. These health problems in turn lead to critical medical conditions that usually require life-long medication, like in the case of diabetes. A good way to treat obesity is to adopt a healthier exercise and diet plan, which can be accessed through a slimming program. However, such a program can end up being quite an expense as healthy weight loss is a long process. For some, doctors may recommend bariatric surgery or other procedures, which can also weigh on your wallet. 


Heart disease

This illness comes in many forms and is usually a result of the weakening of the heart muscle. In fact, India has over 50 million heart disease patients. Common causes of this ailment include unhealthy practices such as smoking, unregulated eating habits and high blood pressure. The general treatment for heart disease includes cardiovascular surgery, which can run into lakhs of rupees.


High blood pressure

This is a health problem that affects around 100 million Indians and can lead to quite a few deadly conditions like stroke or heart failure. Generally, high blood pressure is caused due to stress, hypertension, obesity or other factors like genetic predisposition. The treatment for high blood pressure involves medication and in dire cases, bariatric surgery. The cost for such treatment starts at Rs.4 lakh and onwards, making it a hefty spend if you’re not careful.
