Sustainable development goals


This work aims to know the state of physical, emotional health and healthy lifestyle habits in terms of: adherence to the Mediterranean diet, the consumption of alcohol and drugs and physical activity in students of the Degree in Physiotherapy of the University of Cádiz and its possible interaction with the Covid-19 disease once they has returned to face-to-face in the classrooms. A cross-sectional study is proposed in a sample of 134 students who, through an online questionnaire, have been collected sociodemographic information related to the Covid-19 disease; eating habits (PREDIMED questionnaire); alcohol and drug consumption habits (AUDIT and DAST-10 questionnaires); physical activity (IPAQ questionnaire); and perception of health-related quality of life (SF12 questionnaire). A descriptive and comparative analysis is carried out between questionnaires and a factor analysis. Health-related quality of life is mainly affected by sex and Covid-19 disease. Three main components are obtained with factor analysis that explain 59.48% of the variability found with the questionnaires presenting three clearly differentiated profiles: students with toxic habits; students with healthy habits but poor perception of their state of health; and students with a good perception of their state of health but poor adherence to the Mediterranean diet and physical activity. It is necessary to establish programs to promote healthy lifestyle habits together with emotional reinforcement programs in future health sciences professionals.
