Abstract:

Incidence of hypertension and diabetes mellitus in India are increasing every year. It is very important to diagnose and treat hypertension and diabetes for preventing adverse cardiologic, renal and nervous system diseases. There is dearth of studies about prevalence of hypertension and diabetes among the security staffs and scavengers of a medical institute. This was a cross sectional observational unicentric study. Total 40 scavengers and 84 security staffs were included in the Study. After they gave consent, following data were collected like Blood pressure, Random blood sugar, Addiction history, Drug history.  More than 50% of the staffs had smoking habit. 6.45% staffs were hypertensive and 3.23% staffs were diabetic. Blood sugar and blood pressure among the security staffs and scavengers were well controlled. There was no significant difference among mean blood pressure among 2 groups of staffs. Significant difference was found among mean of random blood sugar among 2 groups of staffs, higher in security staffs. Addiction of smoking was quite high among the staffs. Prevalence of hypertension and diabetes mellitus among the staffs were lower than that of general population.
