The questionnaire is based on their basal metabolic index, hypertension, and body weight management behavioral traits. All the data were collected and analyzed systematically for any association between the parameters involved. Results: From the survey questionnaire, it is inferred that among the 100 subjects that majority of the people with diabetes mellitus knows the consequence of it and its association with obesity, hypertension, and irregular management of their body weight but reluctant to follow and maintain it due to several reasons. Conclusion: From the survey analysis of this study, many elderly individuals are aware of the consequences but remain reluctant to follow due to age-induced exhausted thoughts. However, this can be overcome by their will power and motivated behavioral thought to follow these steps to stay fit and energized.
