Abstract

A PROSPECTIVE STUDY ON AWARENESS ABOUT METABOLIC SYNDROME IN PHARMACY STUDENTS, THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, SOUTH KERALA

Eliz John* and Dr. Merlin N. J.

Abstract

Metabolic disease is commonly increasing in adults. The metabolic syndrome is something that pharmacy students should be aware of as future pharmacists. The purpose of this study is to gauge pharmacy students' knowledge of the metabolic syndrome. The study's objectives are to evaluate pharmacy students' understanding of the metabolic syndrome, examine their attitudes about the condition, and determine how important it is to raise public awareness of the condition. A crosssectional investigation was conducted. It was conducted for a total of six months. The research was conducted at the following institutions: Dale View College of Pharmacy and Research Centre, Thiruvananthapuram; Mar Discorus College of Pharmacy, Marayamuttom; Ezhuthachan College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Marayamuttom; Sree Krishna College of Pharmacy and Research Centre, Parasala. In all, 257 B Pharm, Pharm D, and D Pharm students participated in the study. Simple random sampling was the method chosen for sampling. With the use of a standardised questionnaire, the data was gathered. The questionnaire had roughly 20 questions, of which 5 were generic inquiries for assessing knowledge of the metabolic syndrome. The remaining 14 questions were broken down into 4 primary categories: high cholesterol, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and hypertension. Students studying pharmacy in Thiruvananthapuram, South Kerala, were found to be less knowledgeable of the metabolic syndrome. 240 students out of 257 replied, and of them, 78 (32.5%) were simply aware of the metabolic syndrome. 162 pupils, or 67.5 percent, were not aware of the various metabolic illnesses.

Keywords: Metabolic, Syndrome, Pharmacy, Disease.
