A new update is now released by the health experts tells that people are less aware of accurate nutrition intake. A team of medical students tells that they are needs to learn more than how our diet works as a major effective term on our lifestyle. These students tell that many of the problems which are found in GP surgeries are linked with the nutrition complications.
They updated that the 80 percent of the patients who approached GP face problems linked to their nutrition intake, diet and lifestyle. This also includes depression and type 2 diabetes for some. The data tells that this year the total expenditure of NHS is going to be £11bn for the diabetes-related problem only. This expenditure includes time off work, social care cost as well.
Type 2 diabetes is found to be the most impactful diseases with which a number of people are now struggling with. Type 2 also gives way to the situation of obesity that additionally gets linked with many deadly diseases even cancer. The research channelized by the students tells even the doctors are not well trained to deal with what medications need to call non-communicable diseases and what kind of illness can be deadly to a person.
Dr Rangan Chatterjee who is the GP and Presenter of BBC One’s Doctor in the house says,”The health landscape of the UK has dramatically changed over the last 30 or 40 years and I think the bulk of what I see as a GP now – almost 80% – is in some way driven by our collective lifestyles.”
Another health expert Dr Michael Mosley who is a presenter of BBC One’s Trust Me I’m A Doctor says,”Unfortunately, it’s not part of the traditional training. At medical school, I learnt almost nothing about nutrition. And I have a son at medical school and it’s again not part of his key curriculum. So I don’t get the sense that there are lots of doctors out there who feel empowered to tell patients much about nutrition.”
