Women’s Top Five Health Concerns


Did you know?

  • Depression affects 12 million women every year, compared to 6 million men
  • Symptoms of depression can be sadness, anxiousness, fatigue, appetite changes and sleep issues.

You could be at risk if you have a family history of depression, marriage issues, eating disorder, substance abuse or even medication can play a factor.

What can you do to help yourself?

  • Build a strong relationship with friends
  • Volunteer by helping others less fortunate – it takes the focus off of you by helping someone else
  • Exercise
  • Get a pet! Pets are always helpful and loving

Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer leading to death in women. Symptoms finding a lump, nipple discharge, itching, dimpling, any change in the breast should be a warning to get checked.

Who’s at risk?

  • If you have a family history, age, obesity and medication

What should you?

  • Get regular mammograms, self check, don’t smoke and keep you weight in check and exercise

Heart Disease

Heart disease is responsible for 29% of deaths in women. Most people always think of men first with heart disease, but it affects women, too. Symptoms to be aware of are pain in your shoulder, shortness of breath or vomiting. Unfortunately, this seems like normal things, but always be aware if this continues to rule out heart disease.

Things you can do to reduce the chances?

  • Eat a well balanced diet and exercise.

Autoimmune Disease

Seventy-five percent of autoimmune disease occurs in women. There are 80 known types of misguided attacks on your own body.

  • Symptoms of each disease are unique but share these same symptoms: fatigue, dizziness and low-grade fevers.
  • Your genes that you were born with, gender and ethnic background

Ways to reduce the risk.

  • Get tested
  • Reduce exposure to other sick people
  • Practice good hand washing
