Impact of Sedentary Life Style on Anthropometric and Cardiovascular Parameters

June 29, 2021 Medicine and Medical 0

Goals: Physical inactivity is on the rise among people of all ages in both developed and developing countries, owing to a rise in sedentary lifestyles combined with an increase in the use of technology in everyday life. A sedentary lifestyle adds to a growing physical activity gap, or an imbalance between the amount of physical activity required for optimum health and functional capacity and the amount of physical activity actually achieved. As a result, the goal of this study was to compare sedentary and non-sedentary females aged 25 to 55 years in terms of specific anthropometric and cardiovascular parameters. Methods: A total of 105 healthy females from the Davangere city were recruited at random. There were 47 sedentary subjects and 58 non-sedentary subjects. Weight, height, BMI, waist circumference, hip circumference, and waist to hip ratio were all measured anthropometrically. Pulse rate and blood pressure were also measured as cardiovascular indicators. Results: When compared to non-sedentary subjects in our study, sedentary subjects experienced statistically significant increases in anthropometric and cardiovascular parameters. According to this review, low levels of physical activity are associated with an increased risk of weight gain and a considerable increase in blood pressure. Although our study is far from comprehensive, it does provide a glimpse into the wide range of anthropometric changes that occur as a result of a sedentary lifestyle, even in the absence of overt disease. Sedentary participants had higher anthropometric and cardiovascular indices, however the rise was statistically significant after the age of 35.
