Healthy Living and Active Lifestyle Might Escalate Lifespan in Individuals with Multiple Chronic Conditions, Study Suggests

According to a research study initiated by the researchers of University of Leicester have suggested that a very healthy lifestyle can increase lifespan by 6.3 years in men and lifespan in women increases by 7.6 years, irrespective of the presence of multiple chronic conditions.

It is evident from various sources that there is increasing number of people suffering from two or more chronic conditions (long-term physical or mental health conditions), across the globe with higher mortality risk. In this study researchers evaluated data of 480,940 adults, who were under the age group of 38-73 and the data was collected from the UK Biobank. Moreover, the researchers reported to assess presence of 36 chronic conditions and four lifestyle factors including smoking, diet, leisure-time physical activity, and alcohol consumption, which were self-reported by these participants.

Researchers observed that healthy lifestyle was constantly associated with longer life span among individuals, irrespective of the presence of multiple chronic conditions. Researchers reported that no smoking was linked with highest survival benefit. They said that at 45 years, individuals who continued smoking current exhibited 5 to 6 years shorter life expectancy, in comparison to current non-smokers.

Dr. Chudasama from University of Leicester stated, “More individuals are living with multiple chronic conditions, impacting their health and daily lives. We found a healthy lifestyle, in particular abstinence from smoking, increased life expectancy by as much as 7 years. Our study has important implications for the public's health, as we hope our findings have shown that it's never too late to make vital lifestyle changes.”
