Some diseases are obvious, and some develop gradually, so people usually do not take notice of the diseases until it is too late. Because of that, it is highly important to go on check-ups and consult the doctor even for the slightest changes you notice or feel.
Pay more attention to:
Low Vitamin D levels
If you vitamin D level is under 30ng/ml for a longer period, it can lead to heart diseases, diabetes, some types of cancer and multiple sclerosis.
Prevent this condition by exposing yourself to sunshine more often and taking vitamins orally.
The thyroid gland regulates metabolism and has a crucial role. With low active thyroid glands, there is not enough production of the hormone TSH and the body cannot function properly. Tiredness and feeling cold, which are the symptoms of Hyperthyroidism are often disregarded. The reduced function of the thyroid gland can lead to overweight, heart diseases, high cholesterol, infertility, depression, and nerve damage.
Type 2 diabetes
If your body does not produce enough insulin which dilutes glucose, it causes diabetes. This is a frequent condition because the insulin production gets slower. You can have diabetes for a long period, but you may not know that. Diabetes causes harm to the eyes, heart, kidneys, and nerve endings.
High blood pressure/Hypertension
Because of aging and increased body weight, the blood pressure in the arteries can become too high.
Whether it is because of a bad diet or genetics, high cholesterol levels in blood can lead to arteries closure, causing bad blood flow to the vital organs, such as the heart and brain. In the worst case scenario, it can lead to heart attack or stroke. High cholesterol cannot be felt. That is why you should make blood tests frequently and take advices from the doctor.
This condition is characterized by pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons, due to weariness. Some people have sleeping problems; they are sensitive to light or sound and have intestinal irritation. There is no fibromyalgia test, but doctors set a diagnosis by eliminating other diseases. It is not life threatening, but it can lead to some rheumatic diseases.
With the decrease of the number of red cells, symptoms like tiredness show up. The red cells carry oxygen, so this condition can damage some organs and increase the heart attack risks. Inform your doctor if you regularly feel tired, especially the women who have heavy menstrual bleeding or intestinal disruption.
