They say, “Life begins at forty.” Obviously, by the time you hit forty, you have gained enough experience and skill to understand as well as do what you want to do with your life. Some can finally sit back and enjoy the fruits of hard work they did all their life. However, what most of us, especially women, forget is that we can enjoy life only if we have a ‘good’ health to enjoy it. So, ladies, here are 5 common health problems that can affect you after 40. We tell you the symptoms to identify each of these ailments and preventive measures to avoid them or reduce the risk of suffering from them, so that you can keep yourself fit & healthy and enjoy life to its fullest at and after 40.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
It has been estimated that more than two-thirds of the elderly people are diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Women are thrice as commonly affected than men. However, you don’t have to worry. Know what symptoms to look out for. Some common symptoms include pain, stiffness, swelling, and joint immobility. If you notice these symptoms, please visit your nearby homeopathy clinic and seek help in the early stages. Taking preventive treatment at an early stage will help control the complications, ease the pain and improve the symptoms.
- Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is the result of your body producing insulin, but not using it in an effective way. While risk factors for suffering from type 2 diabetes include some things that you can fix such as excess body weight or your cholesterol levels, there are some factors beyond your control like a family history of heart disease and diabetes. A genetic test might help you identify if you have carried genes for diabetes and have a risk to develop it in future. Take Dr Batra’sTM Genohomeopathy test to find out your risk of having diabetes.
- Breast & Endometrial cancer
Women aged above 40 are at increased risk of breast cancer. It is therefore recommended that they get their annual mammograms done. Post 60 years of age, an average woman is first diagnosed with endometrial cancer, a type of cancer that begins in the lining of the uterus. Early symptoms include vaginal bleeding (both after menopause and in between periods), abnormal vaginal discharge, and pelvic pain. If you see these symptoms, visit a doctor. The sooner the treatment starts, the better the chances are of survival.
- Urinary tract infections
For women above 40, an increase in urinary tract infections is possible due to the thinning vaginal walls and changes to the vagina’s pH that accompany aging. Visit your nearby homeopathy clinic to seek help.
The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that depression will be the second-leading cause of disability worldwide by 2020, just after cardiovascular disease. You have greater risk of suffering from it if you are between the ages of 45 and 64. It is therefore important that you watch out for symptoms of depression and visit your nearby homeopathy clinic to seek help immediately.
Aging is a risk factor for many illnesses. It means you are more likely to experience these illnesses as you get older. However, as the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, by taking preventive measures, you can keep these illnesses at bay. For early treatment, visit your nearby homeopathy clinic and seek help so you can live a longer, happier, and healthier life.
