ABSTRACT

The Study entitled ―Prevalence of Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome among Adults in Tertiary Care Hospitals of Coastal Andhra‖ was designed to assess the awareness of Obesity and Metabolic syndrome reporting at a reputed pharmacy institute in Andhra Pradesh, India, and also to evaluate the impact of an educational intervention carried out in this study. A suitable collection data form, attitude survey questionnaire was designed and validated by pilot study and the study was conducted among inpatients and out patients of hospitals. This cross- sectional study, of 6 month duration included a total of 353 participants. An interactive educational intervention was designed for all participants in hospital. The impact of effectiveness of educational intervention among the patients was evaluated by means of questionnaire survey. The paired t-test in SASversion8 was used for statistical calculation. In our study a total of 353 participants responded and involved in the collection data form and questionnaire survey. Participants involved in the study were 196 male and 157 female patients in hospitals. The overall response rates between collection data and questionnaire was statistically significant (P< 0.045) which shows effectiveness of educational intervention for improving awareness of obesity and metabolic syndrome among the adult participants. The study concluded that imparting the awareness of obesity and metabolic syndrome among the adult patients by means of continuous educational intervention would bring up updated knowledge about of cardiovascular diseases and other causing diseases.
