The many risk factors for type 2 diabetes disease include age, race, pregnancy, stress, certain medications, genetics or family history, high cholesterol, and obesity. Nonetheless, the single best predictor of type 2 diabetes is overweight or obesity. Experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD are estimating that up to 90% of people living with type 2 diabetes are overweight or have obesity.
The relationship between obesity many other chronic diseases like hypertension has been investigated in a large number of cross-sectional population studies and a smaller number of prospective, observational studies. The research findings had indicated that in most populations, blood pressure increases linearly with a relative increase in body weight or body mass index. This relationship was evident in all subgroups. This notwithstanding that, the magnitude of the association appears greater in whites than blacks and greater in younger than older persons.
Some of the health conditions affecting our life are known to us yet we often don’t notice them easily. Take for instance all the problems that are associated with chronic inflammation effects; many of us do not take notice of this until we experience an injury either by way of swellings, redness, and pain flood that affects the area. But even with this indication, when we opted for treatment our focus is always on the pain and not the internal healing process. Inflammation can damage organs and cause disease, but its interference in the brain causes two common disorders. We are therefore going to be discussing the effects of inflammation on the body organs for a better understanding of the body’s vulnerability to this complication. Doctor Dalal Akoury explains that ordinarily, your body’s defense mechanism kicks in, and you don’t have to think too much about inflammation because it is always there when you need it.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread muscle pain, joint stiffness, and fatigue. The condition is chronic but the pain comes and goes and moves about the body. The cause of this disorder is unknown and therefore it is often misdiagnosed or unrecognized and is most of the time complicated by anxiety and mood disorders. this is a common disorder that according to the American College of Rheumatology diagnosis criteria affects about 3-5% of women, most of whom are between ages 20 and 50, but only 0.5- 1.6% of men. This disease is more common in adults than in children but it affects women more than men. This disease is debilitating and is not easily cured. The patients also suffer a lot of pain and the use of drugs to manage this pain can result in problems of addiction and dependence on the pain management drugs. The quest to find an effective treatment for this disease has led to many researchers doing lots of research on possible treatments or therapies that can be utilized to help mitigate the adverse symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the Central Nervous System that is characterized by demyelination and inflammation. In a nutshell, MS is often described as an inflammatory demyelinating condition. Myelin is a layer of fatty that covers the nerves maintaining their health and flexibility. It is demyelination that causes spasms that are common with MS patients. MS occurs when the body’s own immune system attacks the cells that surround and protect neurons. As people lose myelin surrounding their nerves they start feeling weak or having trouble walking. Over time the disease progresses and people may end up with more severe symptoms including paralysis. About 400,000 people are living with MS in the U.S and the figures may continue to grow if better treatments are not availed in good time to help treat the disease.
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid glands fail to produce certain crucial hormones or produces the hormones but in limited quantity. Hypothyroidism is a disease that commonly affects women who are 60 years and above age. At an early stage, it may not show any symptoms but when it stays for a long time without getting treating then such symptoms as joint pain, heart disease, and obesity may occur. Hypothyroidism affects the chemical balances in the body.
