3 Easy Ways to Stay Healthy

1. Take it to heart: Women’s risk factors for heart disease are different from men’s. If you’ve had pregnancy-related high blood pressure or diabetes, or suffer from a rheumatologic condition, you can be at higher risk for developing heart issues later in life. Make sure to let your doctor know if you’ve had these conditions since early detection can help prevent complications. Learn more about heart health.

2. MS awareness: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the nervous system that affects about 400,000 Americans, most of whom are women. MS progresses slowly and symptoms, which can include numbness in your legs, vision problems and difficulty walking and balancing, start showing up around ages 30 to 35. Talk to your doctor if any of these symptoms affect you. Learn more about movement disorders and brain health.

3. Dear Diary: If you suspect food is triggering bothersome symptoms, keep a food diary. Track what you eat and drink and what symptoms you experience afterwards – it may be the key to getting to the bottom of your troubles. Food diaries are also a great way to stay on track with a healthy diet. Learn more about healthy nutrition.
