A report released by Eka Care on health trends in 2022 has found that cholesterol has become a serious concern for men in the 30–40 age group, contrary to the notion that such issues are often faced in the later years of life. The report noticed massive interest among people in monitoring heart rate via their smartphones (using the Eka Care app). Data showed that a single user took around 5,228 heart rate readings last year. However, the report pointed out that 65% people who reported a family history of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and premature heart diseases, ended up following unhealthy lifestyle choices. The study also found that men were consulting psychologists and Ayurvedic doctors more than women, and women were visiting diabetologists much earlier than the 50-year age mark. The report also showed that 68% Indians have taken the primary and subsequent doses of Covid-19 vaccination, with 82% of the total vaccinated pool taking Covishield.
