Being a Women

“Behind every successful man there is a woman”. Not only in the case of a man but this saying stands for the functioning of the whole world. She is said to be the ultimate strength and support behind the success of an individual. There is a lot of differenciation and discrimination in the name of gender as males and females. Nevertheless this difference do exist in nature from time immemorial.

A female draws out various characteristics which is different from that of a male, varying from factors such as physical, mental. biological and reproductive. These are inborn and inbuilt right from the time a mother concieves a female child.
Womanhood is the period in a females life after she has passed through childhood and adolescence, generally around the age 18. Women have three very important physiological functions totally absent in men--menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation.Each of these mechanisms influences the behavioural patterns of a female greatly.
Another such noticable factor could be psycological.
Women prefer to share and care more, she would discuss and figure out a solution for a problem which they face by discussing it with her friends. She is more emotionally depended and possess aa emotional mind when compared to that of men. But men on the other hand seem to be independent and keep things more to themselves. But unfortunately, women are more prone to different types of depressions due to their emotional weakness.
Communication skills and emotional intelligence are found to be better in females. They tend to be more group-oriented.
Women can be, and many are, greatly affected by hormone fluctuations. Hormonal changes in female body is much more prominant and undergoes changes as the age advances. The main two hormones generated in female body are estrogen and progestrone. Estrogen helps the uterus grow, maintains the uterine lining to protect the budding baby. Progesterone has characteristics that balance and counteract the adverse effects that estrogen can have.Progesterone is important mainly for the preparation of the endometrium for implantation of the egg during pregnancy and the maintenance of pregnancy.
women are more often portrayed as being under the influence of their hormones, as being subject to hormonal tides or hormonal storms.

Women face many injustices and inequalities globally, both in terms of economic factors and human rights. An often overlooked aspect of this phenomenon is their health, so its atmost important that proper diet and care are taken as far as female health is concerned.
A healthy diet can help reduce PMS(pre-menstrual syndrome), boost fertility, make pregnancy and nursing easier. It provides one with energy, maintaining weight and keeps you looking good.

God has created women in such a way that, she can take her generation forward by giving birth to new offsprings. The ideal time to start learning about pregnancy is not when a woman is already pregnant but much before that.
For a woman, pregnancy planning means learning everything she can about how her own health and that of her baby can be optimized. She is capable of conceiving from the time she attains puberty till the time of menopause.
A female body is also highly prone to diseases too due to its sensitive features or even due to malnutrition which leads to less immunity. Many such diseases are gallstones, migraine headaches,
osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure(hypertension) etc.
Women with Osteoporosis have weak bones which tend to break. Osteoporosis in the vertebrae can cause serious problems for women. A fracture in this area occurs from day-to-day activities like climbing stairs, lifting objects, or bending forward

 

Research has also revealed the genetic and molecular basis of a number of gender-based differences in health and disease, some of which are related to genotype — XX in the female and XY in the male.
Due to such less immune resistance women have got higher chances of developing Autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases can affect virtually every site in the body.

Autoimmune diseases affect approximately 8% of the population, 78% of whom are women. It is still unkown as to what reasons are there behind such a prevalence. One of the factors behind it could be genetic as it can be passed on from a mother to her offspring.

Blood pressure becoming common among youngsters

High blood pressure has become very common among youngsters these days due to the amount of stress in todays life. High blood pressure mostly occurs due to hereditary reasons as well. Dr Vijay D'Silva, medical director of a cardiac hospital, says, 'Apart from work-related stress, alcohol and smoking and other such related bad habits also lead young people become more prone to high blood pressure and heart ailments. This problem arises at a later stage in life.

What exactly causes high blood pressure:
High blood pressure, weight gain etc happens as a result of inadequate physical activity and stress. When you gain weight your heart finds it really difficult to pump enough blood to the arteries. This condition ultimately leads to high blood pressure and makes you more prone and vulnerable to other fatal diseases.

Excess amount of salt in your diet:
If your salt intake exceeds, it might give rise to high blood pressure at a later stage. As per Dr D'Silva, “The amount of salt that we put while cooking is enough for you. Adding more of raw salt to your diet will result in high BP conditions. Stress is another main factor along with unhealthy lifestyle practices. Lifestyle disorders can also be blamed for high blood pressure in youngsters.

Kidney disease can affect people belonging to any age group and children in various ways, as per expert health specialists. It can range from treatable ill health conditions to other serious and long term life-threatening conditions. There could be a condition thats called an acute kidney disease which could develop suddenly, can last for a short while, and if not treated on time it would result in fatal conditions too.

There is a direct need of more nephrology pediatric centers in the country to deal with issues related to kidney among kids."There is a need for pediatric dialysis centers and more doctors should be trained to handle the complexities related to kidney among children," said Arvind Bagga, professor, pediatrics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi.

Losing weight, quitting smoking may reduce risk of old age Dementia

A new study has showed that old age dementia can be controlled by losing weight, quitting smoking and also reduces the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.

Dementia is not just a term or single disease in itself, but it is rather a general term that would show some symptoms such as memory impairments, communication and thinking problems etc.

the researchers have also suggested that dementia can be included as a part national public health prevention and detection programs along with some other non communicable diseases. It is always better to treat this at the earliest than too late to make healthy lifestyle changes.

The World Alzheimer's Report 2014 commissioned by Alzheimer's disease International said that dementia's links to physical health could be effective at fending off dementia even in later life.

It is founded that Diabetes can hamper a person's risk of developing Dementia by about 50 percent. Obesity and lack of physical activity leads to high blood pressure, which is been associated with many cases of dementia.

Marc Wortmann, executive director of Alzheimer's Disease International, said that the risk factors for dementia "overlap" with those of other major non-communicable diseases. It would draw out similarities with that of many forms of non-communicable diseases.

George McNamara, head of policy at the UK's Alzheimer's Society, said many lifestyle factors play a key role in the development of dementia.

Flour can cause Asthma

Inhalation of flour can be one of the main reasons behind occupational asthma, closely followed by cleaning products, as per some German researchers. A large scale research was conducted in France, which was aimed to understand who all were most influenced and affected by such a condition and what were the main causes behind it.

Some most common symptoms of asthma are coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness across chest. Some of the most common triggers which worsen asthma are colds and flu viruses, cigarette smoke, dust, pollen and animal hair and fur. Asthma can start at any point of time in life or it can arise even as a result hereditary conditions. A person's lifestyle and environment can also result in occupational asthma.

Flour was identified as the main factor or cause behind, seen in almost 20 percent of cases. It is followed by ammonium compounds which are found in abundance in cleaning products. Explained lead study author and Professor Frederic De Blay from the University Hospital Strasbourg. Women had more chances of developing occupational asthma when compared to men.

People who worked in agricultural industries had comparatively less incidence of getting occupational asthma than those who worked in manufacturing industries of food products and beverages. If a person gets asthma at a very later stage in life, then it might have been developed by something in the surroundings or environment rather than a result of a hereditary factor or condition.

'The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations or COSHH protects all workers from exposure to chemicals and other substances in workplace.
