Maintain healthy weight, Tanzanians advised

DAR ES SALAAM: TANZANIANS have been advised to maintain a healthy weight to prevent non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as blood pressure and diabetes.

The call was made over the weekend by emergency disease specialist doctor from Regency Medical Centre, Shreya Shah immediately after conducting a free health screening exercise at Ukonga constituency in Dar es Salaam.

The exercise was part of the bonanza organised by the Ukonga Member of Parliament, Jery Silaa, who is also the Minister for Lands, Housing and Human Settlements Development. She said that among those who attended the screening, several were found to be overweight, especially women, which puts them at risk of contracting non-communicable diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

“It is important that people are educated about healthy eating habits and avoid excessive use of alcoholic beverages and foods with a lot of sugar and salt to avoid NCDs that have been affecting many people,” she said.

“We have attended to more than 400 people and we have found that many of them are overweight, especially women, so we have advised them to do regular exercise and cut excessive carbohydrate consumption.” One of the citizens who attended the test, Alex Ngomola said many people do not have the habit of taking medical checkups.

He said that the situation is sometimes caused by economic hardship, so he asked the hospital to continue providing the service to reach many people who do not have the financial muscles to attend the hospital for routine checkups.

Maria Gwemela one of the Dar es Salaam residents, who attended the health screening exercise, asked Tanzanians to build a culture of conducting regular body checkups so that they can identify any early signs of health issues.
