Life Style Diseases Lifestyle and Lifestyle Diseases If you live an unhealthy life, this can lead to a lifestyle disease. This can include the way you eat, behave, drink, and your surroundings. Other factors like gender, age, and genes could also affect a person’s chance of developing a lifestyle disease. Doctors look at risk factors, or anything that could likely cause injury, disease, or other health problems, to see if a person is able to get a certain disease. Some examples of controllable risk factors are one’s diet and weight, smoking and alcohol abuse, and amount of daily exercise. There are also risk factors that you cannot control like your age, gender, and ethnicity. Just because you have an uncontrollable risk factor doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still try to take care of your body. For example, if you’re likely to get heart disease, make healthy food choices and exercise regularly.

Cancer Cancer is a disease resulted from uncontrolled cell growth. When cells die, the body usually makes a limited amount of more cells, but when the controls that are in charge of making those limited amount of cells break down, too many cells are produced and this usually results in cancer. These faulty cells form a clump called a tumor. A malignant tumor is a mass of cells that invades and destroys good, healthy cells. A benign tumor is an abnormal, but usually harmless cell mass. Many factors can cause cancer including: viruses like human papilloma virus, radioactivity

and ultraviolet radiation, and chemicals in tobacco smoke. One example of cancer is colon cancer, cancer of the colon, an organ in the digestive system. Another is skin cancer like basal cell carcinoma and melanoma. Cancer can also develop in the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. Lymphoma is cancer of the lymph nodes or lymph tissue. Some ways to detect cancer are: getting a biopsy, MRI, and blood and DNA tests. To treat cancer, most techniques are: surgery to remove the tumor, chemotherapy (use of drugs to

Living with Diabetes Diabetes is a disorder where cells cannot obtain glucose from the blood such that high bloodglucose levels result. A diabetic person uses insulin, a hormone that causes cells to remove glucose from the bloodstream. When glucose levels get too high, insulin can remove that extra amount. A diabetic coma can result when the kidneys excrete water while cells then use the body’s fat and protein for energy which causes a build-up of toxic substances. A diabetic coma is a loss of consciousness that happens when there is too much blood sugar and build-up of those toxic substances in the blood. If this is not treated right, the coma can result in death.

To help prevent cancer you should never smoke, protect your skin by using sunscreen, stay away from lots of saturated fats and eat more fruits and vegetables, exercise a least one hour daily, and get regular medical checkups from your doctor so they can answer questions about your body, risk factor s, and how to prevent getting cancer.

Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system attacking the insulin-producing cells or the pancreas. The body is then unable to make insulin. This is caused by genetic factors and viruses but can be treated by a daily dose of insulin and checking their blood sugar daily. Symptoms include: thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, and weight loss. Type 2 diabetes is more common and is usually found in overweight people above the age of 40. The body makes insulin but the body’s cells fail to respond to the insulin. Like type 1, symptoms can include: frequent urination, thirst, fatigue and weight loss,

exercise.
