Take Charge of your Health
Women can work in partnership with their doctors to live longer, healthier lives. Regular checkups, listening to their bodies, and actively seeking healthier lifestyles can be the keys to living a longer life. Research shows that women are often underdiagnosed for certain conditions because they do not seek medical help for screenings and/or symptoms.
- Heart disease is a leading killer of both women and men. Few women recognize symptoms more prevalent in women such as extreme fatigue, shortness of breath, jaw, or shoulder pain.
- Breast cancer often sparks so much fear in women that they neglect regular exams and mammograms. There are now many successful treatment regimens for breast cancer but all of them are more effective when the cancer is discovered early.
- Osteoporosis is responsible not only for fractures, but for the loss of ability to handle daily tasks and enjoy life. Existing bone mass can be protected at any age with a combination of lifestyle changes and medications.
