INTRODUCTION. Identification of risk factors for the emergence, development and exacerbation of chronic noncommunicable diseases and their correction is one of the main tasks of preventive and restorative medicine.
AIM. To study the frequency and severity of meteopathic reactions in patients undergoing health resort treatment, as well as to evaluate the associations with chronic noncommunicable diseases and the region of habitation.
MATERIAL AND METHODS. A verbal and communicative examination of 735 patients undergoing health resort treatment was carried out using the questionnaire «Severity of meteosensitivity of the patient» (Patent 2736612 C1 from 19.11.2020). Cross-sectional study design was used. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistical methods and the criterion c2.
RESULTS. It was shown that patients with chronic noncommunicable diseases including metabolic syndrome had the following meteopathic organism reactions: headaches (in 59.5 per cent of patients), arterial pressure increase (47.0 per cent), complaints of poor health expressed in weakness and decreased activity (42.5 per cent), sleepiness (41.46 per cent), pain in joints (40.5 per cent). The interrelation between the degree of the severity of meteopathy and the presence of diseases as well as the place of a patient’s residence (a region with contrasting climatic conditions and a considerable difference in time zones) was revealed, which may indirectly indicate a decrease in functional and adaptive reserves of the organism.
CONCLUSION. To confirm the results, it is necessary to evaluate the functional state of the organism in patients undergoing treatment, the severity of adaptive responses and the state of individual links of the organism’s regulatory mechanisms under changing weather and climatic conditions.
