GUWAHATI, April 21 - A lipid profile screening camp, covering a group of working journalists, indicates the necessity of immediate medical attention for one fourth of the participants as their cholesterol and triglyceride levels were found far above the permissible limits.
Among the participants (mostly male), who are members of Guwahati Press Club belonging to the age group of 25 to 65 years, 40 per cent have however shown satisfactory outcome as they are reportedly maintaining good health.
Dispur Hospital conducted the free screening camp, where over 130 scribes participated and out of them 25 per cent were diagnosed with high triglyceride levels.
A post-test consultation camp was held yesterday at the Press Club, where cardiologist Dr Chandan Mudak gave free consultation to over 70 participants.
