    The main risk factors that lead to lifestyle diseases are addictive habits like smoking, drinking and drug abuse. Most lifestyle diseases reduce life span and cause extreme social and mental discomfort to the friends and family of the patient. Visits to special facilities like home care, nursing homes and clinics will increase with time. Other risk factors include lack of co-operation from patients, especially in cases of addiction to drugs, alcohol or cigarettes, extreme depression or suicidal tendencies due to the disease and societal isolation.
