Eighty-eight per cent of Chennai professionals face the risk of diabetes due to sedentary lifestyle, erratic eating habits and work-induced stress, a study by S10 Health, an e-commerce healthcare organisation found. The organisation conducted camps across the city to analyze the health conditions of the corporate workpool. Over 1,200 men and 300 women were examined and it was found that only 12% of them had a low risk of developing diabetes. The study also showed that 73% of working people face the risk of obesity and working women are at a higher risk compared to their male counterparts. Results also showed that a majority of the corporate workforce aged between 20 and 29 are diabetic. Dr Dobson Dominic, medical director, S10 Health Sports Lounge said, “The young clan is inclined towards fast food, binging and instant meals. Healthy diets are not taken seriously.”
