Connective/Transition: Alright, with that said, let’s start off with the risk factors. BODY I. Age is likely what comes to a lot of your minds when you think of Alzheimer’s disease, but what else is there? A. Well, according to Mayo Clinic’s page titled Alzheimer’s disease – symptoms and causes last updated December 30, 2017, genetic factors such as your family history, having Down syndrome, or even your gender can create a risk for Alzheimer’s disease.
Postpartum depression (PPD) is a type of clinical depression which can affect woman after childbirth. PPD is very common among women and is a major public health problem. It is estimated that overall 10 to 15% women experience PND while it ranges from 3.5 to 63.3% in Asian countries. But it is one of the most underdiagnosed condition due to lack of adequate number of studies on the subject. Hence the current study was conducted with an objective of assessing the prevalence of postnatal depression among subjects with normal and caesarian deliveries and to compare the sociodemographic profile between normal and caesarian deliveries.
INTRODUCTION Approximately 36 million individuals have Alzheimer’s disease (AD) worldwide which is the common cause of dementia in the range of higher ages (Alzheimers.net, 2014). About 5% to 8% of people aged above 65, 15% to 20% of people aged above 75 and 25% to 50% of those aged above 85 are affected by Alzheimer’s disease (Duthey, 2013). Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversibly progressive disease of the brain characterised by gradual loss of memory, change in personality and a decline in cognitive functions such as language, perception and reasoning. An individual with Alzheimer’s disease would lose all mental and memory abilities in later stages (National Institute of Aging, 2011). It is believed that Alzheimer’s disease is caused by the
Many studies prove this claim that abortions are detrimental. After women have an abortion, they can be diagnosed with depression. Multiple studies have proven that women post-abortion are likely to have depression also with other mental issues. Many women have participated in studies that show more women will experience regret, depression, and anxiety. Another piece of evidence to support my claim is “Research published in The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry in January has shown that even women without past mental health problems are at risk of psychological ill-effects after abortion”(McDonagh).
Smoking and unhealthy diet are the some of the risk factors that contribute to disease and therefore need intervention and support to prevent it from happening. The American Heart Association (AHA) (2016) suggest that changing your lifestyle and dietary habits help to prevent cardiovascular diseases. In relation to the patient; smoking creates the build-up of fat in the arteries which is a high risk factor for several types of disease which can lead to heart attacks and contribute to the number of deaths occurring (AHA,
The theory I choose that has application to my health promotion concept is the life course theory. The alternative approach to life course theory is a model that hypothesizes that adult chronic disease reflects the cumulative lifetime exposure to damaging physical and social environments (Nickitas, Middaugh, & Aries, 2010, p. 28). It was mentioned that factors like one’s socioeconomic status, like being born into poverty, could lead to poor education and limited access to health care services. This theory has a significant correlation and application to the health promotion concept I have chosen – the prevention, treatment, and care of diabetes. Diabetes is the 7th leading underlying cause of death in 2011("Healthy People 2020," 2014).

People who have Graves' disease can end up suffering from pregnancy issues, heart disorders, and brittle bones. According to the Mayo Clinic, some pregnancy issues that people with Graves' disease can suffer from are miscarriage, preterm birth, fetal thyroid dysfunction, poor fetal growth, maternal heart failure, and preeclampsia. When you have hyperthyroidism but you want a child you have to put all of these factors in to place. Thinking of all the disorders your baby could possibly have because of your disease is terrifying. The heart disorders people can suffer from are heart rhythm disorders, changes in the structure and function of the heart muscles, and congestive heart failure, which is the inability of the heart to pump enough blood to the body.
Genetics lay the groundwork for how our bodies will adapt and forge into themselves throughout our lifetimes. Therefore, the health of family members in our lineage before us greatly influences our health today. My given genetics affect numerous of my daily activities and play an important role in determining who I am. When I am working out, my ability to build muscle mass is partially dependent upon my mother and fathers potential, and their potential is dependent upon their mother and fathers. The relativity of genetics is just as important of a health factor as diet, exercise, and mental health.
: The most frequent and known is hypertension. But maternal malnutrition, infections (toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalovirus, listeria), changes in blood clotting, etc. can influence. The list of diseases or pathologies in the mother, which can influence the development of the baby, is very extensive. In this sense, my advice is that, if it is your case, make a preconceptional visit and consult your gynecologist.
One of the concluding sentences that Dr. Sharon Moalem directs toward her audience is, “[...] Our relationship with disease is often much more complex than we may have previously realized.” “Survival of the Sickest” delves into the theme of the way inheritance and genetic codes in our bloodlines allows fatal diseases to enter our body and the reasons for this happening. The author discusses various diseases and their origin, and includes facts as to how this disease is able to affect modern life. She suggests that said modern diseases played a necessary part in the survival and selection of those before us in our history. To begin, the author discusses hemochromatosis, a disease that causes an excess of iron in a person’s body. It, in particular, targets the heart and the liver.
However, there are numerous strategies that can be implemented into one’s life to reduce weight and construct healthy lifestyle. As an individual, one can visit a nutritionist or a doctor to get health tips and to check for obesity-related diseases such as heart disease, strokes, and cancer. A person could choose a wholesome low-fat, low-sugar, and low-carbohydrate diet with reasonable proportions. Cutting back on portion size will help one balance energy IN and energy OUT thus leading to a healthy weight. Healthy living also includes having the proper amount of physical activity.
