Lonely hearts face heart risks more, says study

People who live alone are twice as likely to have serious heart problems as those who live with a partner, says a new study//.

According to a study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, Danish researchers surveyed around 1,38,000 adults between the ages of 30 and 69 living in one area of Denmark and found that certain heart disease risk factors may be more common in the lifestyles of people who live alone.

Doctors in India believe that the findings of the Danish study are applicable on all human beings across the world. "This study almost confirms what we doctors knew for a long time," says Dr JPS Sawhney of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital here.

According to doctors here, risk factors like obesity, smoking and high cholesterol, which eventually result in various heart ailments, are more dominant in singles.

"In cases when people are divorced, or their spouses are dead or they have deliberately chosen a single life, their chances of developing cardio-vascular diseases significantly increases. In fact, the mortality rate of such persons is more," says Dr Sawhney.

Researchers say results of the study suggest that doctors should take a patient's living situation a well as his/her age and other established risk factors into account when assessing hs/ her risk of heart disease.
