Prevention and Self-Care Practices for Lifestyle Diseases Among Civil Servants in Nigeria (Published)

This article examines lifestyle diseases, often referred to as non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which present a significant threat to world health. Exposing the frequency and consequences of these chronic conditions, which include cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and chronic respiratory disorders, the story emphasises why they are the primary cause of death globally. The paper explores the definitions, worldwide burdens, and the significant influence of lifestyle choices on the emergence of hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. The crucial link between unhealthy behaviours and the emergence of lifestyle illnesses is shown by a comprehensive study of modifiable risk variables, underscoring the need of proactive lifestyle treatments. The importance of preventative measures in preserving cardiovascular health is discussed in detail, including diets low in sodium and potassium, physical exercise, weight loss, and stress management. With a focus on health exams, public awareness campaigns, and teamwork, the paper promotes a multimodal strategy to combat lifestyle disorders. The article ends by highlighting the significance of regular blood pressure checks as an essential part of preventative healthcare.
