Scottish Health Records have found out that an increase in diabetes and weight gain have made the efforts to reduce heart diseases null. This is a shocking halt in progress in one of the most prominent problems or rather health issues that people are facing in the world.

In the census, it has Been seen that between 1990 and 2014 the heart attack and strokes are seen on a declining trend in people. This was mainly due to the reduced smoking rates, cholesterol levels, and blood pressure.

Decline in Heart Disease Disrupted by Rising BMI and Diabetes

But the increase in diabetes and the body mass index (BMI) or weight gain to put it more simply, have caused a halt to the further decline in the number of patients affected by heart diseases. The number of heart attacks in Scotland fell from 1069 per 100,000 people in 1990 to 276 per 100,000 people in 2014.

The balance was canceling each other out. The records show that the number of heart attacks prevented from reducing smoking habits is almost equal to the number of heart attacks experienced due to the increase in BMI. So the end result is still coming back to the first square, and this way, no progress is made in reducing heart problems in human beings. It is quite a dilemma to be facing.

The case is similar to the reports seen in England. Many people who have heart problems are equally the people who are obese. Analysis are also being seen to make sure that the contribution of diabetes and weight gain is making a lot of problems and increase in heart problems.
