Abstract :

Tobacco consumption, either in smokeless form or as smoking, is reported to be responsible for major non-communicable diseases namely, cardiovascular diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and cancers. The World Health Organization predicts that tobacco deaths in India may exceed 1.5 million annually by 2020. The present prospective study was carried out in SAIMS Medical College Indore to assess the side effect of tobacco in relation with cardiovascular diseases. Total 350 cases were selected from 25-60 yrs of age group. They were grouped in 3 groups. Group 1 Tobacco non users (Control group N =50), Group 2Tobacco chewer (Study group N=150), Group 3Tobacco smoker (Study group N =150). Blood samples were collected & analyzed for Biochemical Parameter Fasting Blood Sugar; Lipid profile (Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, & Tri Glyceride) & Renal profile (Blood Urea, Sr.Creatinine & Sr.Uric Acid) in biochemistry lab at SAIMS Indore. In this study we found that Systolic and diastolic blood presser were high in tobacco smokers/chewers. Total cholesterol, Triglyceride, LDL level were high & HDL level was low in tobacco smokers/chewers which is highly significant.
