Women’s Health Week 2017

Women’s Health Week 2017

The information in this article is immensly helpful and  should not be ignored.  Below are just two of the a list of tips offered:

Tip 1: Women’s Heart Health
“Women should talk to their doctors about heart risk as early as age 20. Conditions that occur during pregnancy, such as gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia, can increase the risk of heart disease in the future. Know your risks and trust your instincts.” – Dr. Nisha Jhalani, cardiologist, NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center

Tip 2: Cancer Prevention
“Recent studies have shown that rates of colon and rectal cancer are rising sharply among young Americans. No matter your age, if you have signs or symptoms such as rectal bleeding, bloody stool or significant unexplained weight loss, speak with your doctor. Know your body, if something changes or feels different, get it checked.” – Dr. Felice Schnoll-Sussman, gastroenterologist and director of The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center
