运动可以节省可观的医疗费用

      DALLAS, Sept. 7 (合众国际社UPI) 《摘要》美国心脏协会杂志上发表的一项新的研究显示,经常作推荐量运动的人每年可以节省数百或数千美元的医疗保健费用。
      以前的研究表明,运动可以降低心脏病和中风的风险,并改善糖尿病和高血压。新的研究表明,除了对健康有好处外,还节省了你个人的开支,减少了对医疗保健的依赖。
      佛罗里达州Baptist的心血管疾病诊所中心主任Khurram Nasir 说:在易患心脏病或中风高危人群中,有规律运动的人很少住院,急诊和开药。
      这项研究,分析了26239名年龄在18岁以上的人,其中约一半人没有心血管疾病。
      心血管疾病如冠状动脉疾病、中风、心脏病发作、心律失常或外周动脉疾病都需较高的医疗费用。
      与心血管疾病人平行组进行推荐水平的每周五天30分钟的中等强度有氧活动或者每周三天的25分钟的精力充沛的有氧活动。
      在那些最危险的心血管疾病中,包括高血压、糖尿病、吸烟或肥胖中那些作推荐水平运动者每年的医疗费用比那些没有运动者要低约500美元。
      如果20%的心血管疾病患者不锻炼已经达到推荐的目标,每年可以节省数十亿美元的医疗保健费用。
      Khurram Nasir还说:这信息对病人是有益的,优化体育活动对减少疾病和医疗费用是非常好的一剂良药。


DALLAS, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Getting a little healthier by getting a little more active can do more than improve physical condition: It may fatten your wallet.
People who exercise at least at minimum recommended levels can save hundreds or thousands of dollars per year in healthcare costs, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
Previous studies have shown exercise can reduce risk for heart disease and stroke and improve diabetes and high blood pressure. The new study shows that in addition to benefits to health, savings as a result of needing less healthcare may add up significantly over the course of a year.
"Even among an established high-risk group such as those diagnosed with heart disease or stroke, those who engaged in regular exercise activities reported a much lower risk of being hospitalized, [having] an emergency room visit and use of prescription medications," Dr. Khurram Nasir, director the Center for Healthcare Advancement and Outcomes and the High Risk Cardiovascular Disease Clinic at Baptist Health South Florida, said in a press release.
For the study, researchers analyzed surveys of 26,239 people age 18 or older, roughly half of whom did not have cardiovascular disease.
The researchers report people in the study who had cardiovascular disease -- coronary artery disease, stroke, heart attack, arrhythmia or peripheral artery disease -- had higher healthcare costs.
People with cardiovascular disease who exercised at recommended levels, 30 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity five days per week or 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity three days per week, had healthcare costs more than $2,500 lower than those not meeting the recommendations.
Among the healthiest participants in the survey who had at most one risk for cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking or obesity, those who exercised at recommended levels had annual healthcare costs about $500 lower than those who did not.
The researchers add that if 20 percent of cardiovascular disease patients not exercising already started to meet recommended goals, several billion dollars in healthcare costs could be saved every year.
"The message to the patient is clear: There is no better pill in reducing the risk of disease and healthcare costs than optimizing physical activity," Nasir said.
