Women have unique health issues. Some of the health issues that affect both men and women can affect women differently. Aside from the obvious that include pregnancy, menopause and conditions of the female organs, at the Churchill Centers ™ the recommended preventative breast cancer, cervical cancer, heart disease, diabetes, thyroid, sub-clinical hypothyroidism, debilitating menopausal symptoms and bone density screenings are as important as instituting preventative regimens that treat the entire body. The body is inherently a healthy organism , so many catastrophic diseases can be ameliorated, prevented or alleviated.
Women and men also have many of the same health problems. But these problems can affect women differently. For example:
- Women are more likely to die following a heart attack than men
- Women are more likely to show signs of depression and anxiety than men
- The effects of sexually transmitted diseases can be more serious in women
- Osteoarthritis affects more women than men
- Women are more likely to have urinary tract problems
