Gen Y has a Higher Risk of Paralysis Stroke

Gen Y

It is found that paralysis strokes among Indians is increasing every year by 50 percent. This is mainly common among people of age 30 – 50 years. According to doctors, consumption of excessive refined carbohydrates is leading to obesity which is primary reason for atrial fibrillation or heart rhythm disorder. They lead to stroke and paralysis.

Dr K K Aggarwal, president of the Heart Care Foundation of India has stated that due to a lack of timely detection and prevention, paralysis is increasing significantly in India. According to a registry released by Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society, the number of cases of atrial fibrillation have increased from 67 lakh in 2011 to 1.27 crore in 2013. Another sad finding is that there are only 20 centres for detection and treatment of atrial fibrillation.

He further added that all patients with atrial fibrillation need sequential echocardiography and permanent blood thinners. If there is a lack of reversible cause, atrial fibrillation is always recurrent. Leaving it untreated can lead to paralysis. However, unfortunately there are only 20 centers for treatment of atrial fibrillation in the entire country.
