Focus on Conditions
Whether you've just been diagnosed or you're trying to learn more about a medical condition, here's a look at some commonly treated conditions in our community with information on causes, symptoms and treatment options.
Heart Failure is a serious
health condition affecting nearly
5 million Americans. This is
a condition in which the heart can't
pump (supply) enough blood
to the body's other organs and
is generally chronic in nature.
Just the word stroke can
frighten people. Today,
thanks to research, we know
how to work toward preventing
a stroke and there are new
treatments to help treat a person,
but each person must know their own risk
for stroke, must know the warning signs,
and must get to help immediately.
The earlier breast cancer
is found, the better the chances
that treatment will work. The goal
is to find cancers before
they start to cause symptoms.
Diabetes is a disease in
which the body does not
produce or properly use
insulin. Insulin is a hormone
that is needed to convert sugar,
starches and other food into
energy needed for daily life.
Osteoporosis is a disease that
causes thin and fragile bones, which
are more susceptible to fracture with
minimal trauma. It is not known what
exactly causes osteoporosis although
genetic factors are certainly important,
and your risk of developing the disease
increases if your parents suffered
with this problem.
Asthma is a worldwide health
concern with a dramatic increase
over the past several years. It is
one of the most common serious
chronic diseases in the pediatric
population in the United States
affecting 6.5 million children.
