The objective of the present study was to investigate the economic consequences of non-communicable diseases of adults at household level. According to the objective of the study the analysis was done using data collected from 808 adults of Bangladesh who were investigated by some doctors and nurses from and nearby their working places. Among these adults 49.6 percent were suffering from at least one of the non-communicable diseases. The most common non-communicable disease was diabetes. The percentage of exclusive diabetic patients among NCDs affected adults was 55.9 followed by diabetic-cum-heart (14.0%) and diabetic- cum- kidney (9.5%) patients. The percentage of admitted NCDs patients in hospital was 71.1 and they were treated for, on an average, 4.72 days incurring an opportunity loss of 37.75 working hours. The economic loss per month for treatment was Tk.3030.21. This economic loss was 4.04 percent of the monthly family income. The economic loss and the opportunity loss due to hospital admission was the economic burden to the individual household.
