Women's Health

Women and men have many of the same health issues, but they can affect women differently (e.g. women may have different symptoms of heart disease).  Women sometimes neglect their own health and focus instead on their partner's and their children's, which can lead to a worsening of a current condition or the development of additional conditions.

There are certain diseases or conditions are more common in women, such as osteoarthritis, obesity and depression.  Some conditions, such as menopause and pregnancy, are unique to women.  Healthy lifestyle choices and regular check-ups can go a long way toward reducing women's health risks.
