This week we’re diving into a very important topic regarding the importance of recognizing the signs of serious illness. Specifically we are focusing on stroke, heart attacks, and diabetes.
These common diseases can be devastating to individuals and families and recognizing the signs of any of these occurring is crucial to staying healthy, getting treatment or prevention.
We all live busy and active lives at one point or another and can easily forget to take signs of shortness of breath, numbness or constant tiredness seriously. We easily attribute it to the effects of living our lives but the reality is that there is a possibility that it could be signs of something more serious.
In This Episode You Will Learn:
1). Why it’s so important to remember the importance of keeping signs of illness at the top of our minds especially as we get older.
2). Some examples of how to find out if someone is showing signs of a serious illness as sometimes we may not even recognize these signs or take them seriously.
3). Some of the common symptoms that we can identify pertaining to heart attack, diabetes or a stroke.
4). Why some of these symptoms are hard to identify as possible leads in to serious illness and why getting them checked out as soon as possible is the best way to avoid issues down the road.
5). Why you should always find a doctor that you feel is paying attention to your needs and concerns. Don’t just stay with someone because you’ve always been there. If they aren’t listening to you and your concerns about these kinds of signs then find someone who will.
