Things Men Usually ignore about Their Health


Men usually tend to think that they are invincible when it comes to their health. They may see signs that something is different or something feels different with the functioning of their bodies, but they refuse to seek medical attention. What about illnesses that you may not be able to predict that you have? Visiting your doctor for an annual check up or if you prefer every six months, is just as important as your weekly visits with the slough escorts so don't forget to make your appointment and stick with it.

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is known be a silent killer since you wont know you have it unless you get your blood pressure checked. This silent killer leads to the risk of kidney failure, brain damage, heart attacks and even heart failure. If your blood pressure reading is or above 140 over 90, you are in the danger zone of hypertension and damage could already be taking place.

The cause of hypertension is not known, but stress, being overweight, genetics and your diet all influence your chance of getting high blood pressure. The symptoms of hypertension are confusion, chest pains, a change in vision as well as fatigue. If you think that you may be suffering from hypertension, then its best to visit your GP or get an over the counter reading from a trained health professional.

Think that you suffer from indigestion because of the way your stomach reacts to spicy food given to you by Slough escorts? Well think again, since you could be misdiagnosing yourself and the real issue could be peptic ulcers.

These ulcers are caused by bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori, which is a bug that causes damage to the wall of your stomach by weakening the mucus that protects it from the acid that is found in your gut. When that job is completed, the bug bores a hole in the lining of your stomach and tends to reside there while the acid in your stomach continues to eat away at the infected spot thus causing an ulcer.

Peptic ulcers are found more in men than women. Research does not know how this bacterium is spread but your risks of getting this ulcer may be based on your family history.

Tummy aches that tend to occur 2-3 hours after having a meal or wake you up at night when there isn't any food in your stomach are signs of ulcers. If you believe that you have ulcers, go to your doctor immediately to get medical treatment because over the counter drugs only relieve the pain for a while.

If these illnesses are not treated, they can spiral out of control giving you more trouble than you bargained for.
