The Doctor said health issues are increasing because of lifestyle and types of food people eat.
“We check their glucose levels as many of them are hypertensive and diabetic; we advise them to visit hospitals for medical check ups because the major health challenge we have in Nigerian is that many people do not visit the hospital for medical checkups until they at the point of death”.
“Those who tested positive are not aware they are hypertensive and diabetic. We advised them to avoid taking much salt and fatty food such as soft drinks because it contains high sugar level. It is better to eat high fiber foods; vegetables and fruits because they are good for the body”.
She advised those who are diabetic to reduce stress, old people should eat more vegetables and fruit-related foods, while children should eat balanced diets because it would help their growth.
“Major cause of hypertension is stress because there is the hardship in the country and people find it difficult to relax. Some Actors will shoot scenes late in the night and wake very early the following morning to continuing shooting their movie. So, people should make out time to relax irrespective work pressure or hardship
Taking plenty of water is good for health”.
