Women’s Health Issues Prevention Measures:
Heart disease in women can be improved, much better if prevented, if and only if certain lifestyle changes are made.
- Eliminating bad habits such as addiction to alcohol and smoking should be rid of. Smoking is one of the major risk factors of any heart disease. The nicotine in cigarettes tends to constrict the blood vessels making it all the more difficult for the heart to pump blood.
- Exercise is good for the body. It is a good habit to develop. It burns and disposes the body toxins as well. Because cancer is a vital health issue for women, regular health checkups will be great. Mammogram, Pap smear, ultrasound, and the CA 125 blood test will be helpful to detect, as early as possible, any risk of ovarian or breast cancer.
- There is a more recent development that detects the presence of ovarian cancer cells in the body. It is called the OvaCheck. It is more accurate in detecting early signs of ovarian cancer than the CA125 blood test.
- Sleep deprivation is not a good thing. Many health issues have been reported to be caused by lack of sleep.
