The study was conducted over a period of one year from January 2021 to January 2022,
among 275 antenatal mother having gestation between 24-28 weeks. Data was analyzed
for DIPSI criteria using plasma blood glucose. We found 6 patients who met diagnostic
criteria for GDM. The Prevalence of GDM was observed in 2.18 % patients. Our study
have shown that prevalence of GDM in NCR area is quite low as compared to other
study .It may be because our study participants is mainly belong to rural area having
low socio-economic status with healthy life style. Our study is confined to small number,
a larger study with screening program for GDM is required in this area

The purpose of scientific study by a random sample was to figure out the impact of yogic practices among obese adult women on selected physiological variables. For the purpose of the research, 30 obese adult women residing in Chennai City between the ages of 25 and 35 years were randomly selected from 15 subjects in two categories, experimental group I and group II, using a random sampling group method. It was speculated that there will be substantial variations in selected physiological variables such as Systolic Blood Pressure and Body Mass Index (BMI) relative to the control group owing to yogic practices among obese adult people. For this analysis, the training time was eight weeks. Experimental group-I had yogic practice in the morning, for an hour, six days a week. Community II was held in successful repose. For all the participants, the pre-test and post-test were done before and after the testing. Study of Co-variance (ANCOVA) was used to evaluate the data to figure out the essential variations between the groups. The significance test was set at a degree of trust of 0.05. Because of yogic meditation on chosen physiological factors such as the index of body mass (BMI) and the control group among obese adult women, the findings revealed that there were substantial variations. It was concluded that as compared to Group II on physiological variables such as Systolic Blood Pressure and Body Mass Index (BMI) in obese adult people, there was a positive influence on yogic practices and the result was agreed at a level of confidence of 0.05. It was concluded that yogic activities are required to maintain a healthy weight and blood pressure for obese adult people.

The aim of the random group experimental research was to figure out the impact of yogic practices on teenage stressed girls' body mass index (BMI) and stress. For the purpose of the study, 30 stressed adolescent girls were chosen randomly using random sampling group method They came from Chennai between the ages of 14 and 18, and were split into two classes, I and II, each with 15 subjects. It was hypothesized that there will be substantial variations in physiological and psychological factors such as Body Mass Index (BMI) and Depression in the teenage depressed girls than in the control group. Preliminary test was conducted for two Groups on Body Mass Index (BMI) and Stress before the start of the training program. Group I subjects were given Yogic practices for 60 minutes, 6 days a week  for a total period of eight weeks. Group II (Control Group) were in active rest. After the experimental period, the two groups were retested again on the same dependent variables. Co-variance analysis (ANCOVA) was used to assess the relevant distinctions between the experimental group and the control group. The significance test was set at a degree of trust of 0.05. The results of the study proved that the Experimental Group showed significant differences on selected physiological and psychological variables such as Body Mass Index (BMI) and Stress than the Control Group due to Yogic practices among adolescent stressed girls. The theory was agreed at a confidence level of 0.05. Therefore it is concluded that teenage girls benefit from Yogic activities to sustain a balanced Body Mass Index (BMI) and to overcome stress.

This short study enclosed a male category of Iraqis (343) divided into 2 groups one group
contain smokers males (183) who smoke over twenty cigarettes per day and group of nonsmokers
males (160), the mean age groups was (41 years), the predominant blood groups
was O+ and B+, for each groups. The results of this study revealed statistically highly
significant differences within the group of smokers ' body mass levels and blood lipid
levels in distinction to those of the non-smokers with a propensity to have obesity within
the category of smokers relative to the group of non-smokers, so blood lipid
concentrations were higher in total cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol rate in
the smoker's community, and the HDL rate was lower. Whereas the body mass index for
this study was a statistically highly significant regression towards the high proportion of
obesity with high concentration levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides and low-density
fats and a drop in high-density fat concentration levels

Obesity is considered to contribute to a number of physical and mental problems. A convergence of adult obesity and rising morbidity and mortalité in men and women has been shown by many reports. Although the association between obesity and psychological wellbeing is well known. Obesity is commonly thought to be strongly related to certain behavioral disorders and can also be the source of overweight. Evidence for these views comes mainly from case reports, while large sample studies hasn't always supported these findings. Nevertheless, several findings have indicated that the chances of cardiovascular disease and death are directly linked to body mass index (BMI), however a rising research force researching psychological effects of obesity provides misleading outcomes. The physical health implications of obesity have been thoroughly reported. Most studies have shown that weight and psychological well-being are negatively related. The research paper is designed with the help of 200 young women interviewed with the help of a series of questionnaires to explore the relation between mental diseases and weight, particularly obesity.

Uterine fibroids is the most common benign gynecological disease, the pathogenesis of which is not fully understood. We examined 152 women in the II clinic of the T ashkent Medical Academy. The saturation of the body with vitamin D (25 ( OH ) D ) and its relationship with concomitant obesity in patients with uterine fibroids and healthy women were studied . In less than half of women with symptomatic myoma, deficiency and severe deficiency of vitamin D prevails with concomitant obesity of varying degrees . Studying the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and excess body weight in this pathology makes it possible to predict the development of the disease, the nature of the course and the risk of possible complications.
