YoloHealth ATM at the forefront of Chronic Disease Detection

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases or chronic conditions are a group of medical conditions that are caused by infectious agents and are not contagious. These are long-term medical conditions that persist over an extended period and typically progress slowly. These diseases are characterized by their prolonged duration and are often associated with genetic factors, lifestyle choices, and environmental influences.

The impact of NCDs worldwide is quite alarming and is a major public health concern, as they are responsible for a substantial portion of global morbidity and mortality. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Report released in Sep 2023, 17 Million people die from a NCD before age 70 each year, and 86% of these premature deaths occur in low and middle-income countries. Early detection and screening are key strategies in addressing NCDs and reducing their impact on public health.

Some of the common types of NCDs include Hypertension (cardiovascular disease), Obesity, and Diabetes.


Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, is a medical condition where the force of blood against the walls of the arteries is consistently too high. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and is typically expressed as Systolic Pressure – the higher number in a blood pressure reading, which represents the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats and pumps blood and Diastolic Pressure – the lower number, which represents the pressure in the arteries when the heart is at rest between beats.

Normal Blood Pressure is typically considered to be around 120/80 mmHg. Hypertension is usually diagnosed when blood pressure readings consistently exceed 130/80 mmHg.

With YoloHealth as your healthcare partner get seamless Blood Pressure screening with blood tests measuring cholesterol levels, and a comprehensive lipid profile test that can affect cardiovascular health. 12 Lead ECG is also performed to check signs associated with Hypertension.

If your blood pressure readings consistently show elevated levels during multiple tests at HealthATM, it is advised to consult a healthcare professional to determine its severity, and whether it is primary or secondary.


Obesity is a medical condition characterized by abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that it can potentially have negative effects on health. It is typically determined by an individual’s body mass index (BMI), which is calculated based on their weight and height.

For adults, World Health Organization (WHO) defines overweight and obesity as follows:

  • Overweight is a BMI greater than or equal to 25; and
  • Obesity is a BMI greater than or equal to 30.

Living with Obesity can also increase your risk of developing many potentially serious health conditions, including: Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Respiratory problems, Joint problems, Cancer, Psychological and Social Effects, and Metabolic Syndrome.

In the recent years, there is growing obesity problem in low- and middle-income countries and nowhere is it growing more rapidly than India. According to the latest National Family Health Survey (NFHS-5), nearly 23% of men and 24% of women were found to have a BMI of 25 or more.

YoloHealth ATM is your one stop solution for complete Body Composition Analysis including Body Mass Index (BMI), Bone Mass, Muscle Mass, Muscle Quality Score, Body fat, and Visceral Fat. Blood tests are also carried out to assess certain metabolic markers such as cholesterol levels, triglycerides etc., which can be associated with Obesity and other health risks.

Obesity is a complex condition, and a diagnosis also takes into account a person’s overall health, medical history, and lifestyle factors. Hence, after determining certain factors, it is advised to see professionals through physical consultation or through Telemedicine platform.


Diabetes is a chronic medical condition that affects how your body regulates blood sugar, also known as blood glucose. Blood sugar is an essential source of energy for cells, and its levels are tightly controlled by the hormone insulin which is produced by the pancreas. Diabetes occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produced.

According to the latest report of World Health Organization (WHO), about 4.22 million people worldwide have diabetes, and about 1.5 million deaths are directly attributed to diabetes each year.

With YoloHealth ATM’s smart diagnostics, get hassle free testing of your random blood glucose levels. A Hemoglobin A1c test is also performed which measures average blood sugar over past two to three months. It is used for diagnosis and long-term monitoring. Regular monitoring of blood sugar levels is essential for proper management and to reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes.

In case of elevated blood sugar levels along with classic symptoms of diabetes, such as excessive thirst and frequent urination, it is advised to consult a doctor.
