Understanding and improving South Asian health

South Asian populations who live in the UK and the West suffer an ethnic variation in disease. TransformNow help you identify specific asian health conditions so you can manage them better.

What are the issues?

  • Heart attacks and cardiovascular incidents are more common among South Asians than white Europeans, with up to a 50% higher chance.
  • This is due to factors such as higher fat levels and lower lean muscle levels in men and women from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Africa.
  • These factors also contribute to higher rates of diabetes, hypertension, and related conditions among South Asians.
  • Studies have shown that even children of South Asian origin have higher lipid profiles than white children at similar ages.
  • Family history of coronary heart disease and traditional or Western diets also contribute to risk.

“Studies have found that the NHS and doctors do not always take South Asian patients seriously, leading to delayed interventions. This phenomenon is sometimes called the Mr Singh Syndrome, Mrs Begum Syndrome, or Mrs Bibi Syndrome.”

The right tests for your situation

Managing these diseases implies risk factors need to be recognised and changed. For South Asian patients, this means considering a higher prevalence of diabetes, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL-cholesterol, and elevated lipoprotein(a) levels, as well as overweight and obesity, hypertension, tobacco use, and low physical activity levels.

  • We offer specially designed wellness and cardiac tests for South Asian populations in the UK and the West to help identify specific health conditions and make lifestyle changes to reduce disease risk.
  • We can also design bespoke blood, DNA, and diagnostic tests to suit individual conditions or family histories.
