Disease prevention and treatment

See 5 diseases that are silent killers & what you can do to prevent them.

Five diseases that are known as silent killers, and there is anything you can do to prevent them.

There are numerous ailments that require special, immediate attention and care, regardless of whether you opt to have a routine examination. Some of them have caused additional issues and have also resulted in the loss of numerous lives as a result of carelessness. They are referred to as "silent killers" since they can manifest themselves in a serious manner at any time without warning.

Overall health, on the other hand, is determined by following a healthy meal plan, maintaining a healthy routine, and making investments in healthy lifestyle activities. Failure to do so may result in chronic illnesses that last a lifetime and may result in unexpected consequences or even death if not addressed.

However, in order to be on the watch, here are some health disorders that can kill you without you knowing it, as well as what you can do to prevent or manage them.

1. Obstructive sleep apnea .

Individuals who suffer from sleep apnea breathe loudly while sleeping, which is a serious sleep disorder. It can result in loud snoring, excessive fatigue during the day, and other symptoms. Is it true that those who suffer from severe sleep apnea are more susceptible and vulnerable to unexpected deaths and strokes while they sleep? As a result, it is known as the silent killer.

However, for moderate cases of sleep apnea, some lifestyle modifications, such as decreasing weight, eating a well-balanced diet, quitting smoking, and receiving the proper nasal allergy medication, can help prevent the condition from occurring. Consult with your doctor, however, to determine how mild or serious your case of sleep apnea is, so that they can prescribe the appropriate therapies.

2. Coronary artery disease.

Coronary artery disease is one of the many heart disorders that can be fatal, despite the fact that they affect many people. It is a disorder in which the coronary arteries, which provide blood and oxygen to the heart, become narrowed, resulting in chest pain or potentially a heart attack.

As a result, if you have high blood pressure and/or excessive cholesterol, you can control it by having regular check-ups. Besides making required lifestyle adjustments such as eating healthier and exercising regularly, you can also abstain from smoking or secondhand smoke, drinking, and engaging in other harmful behaviors.

3. Osteoporosis.

This is a bone illness in which the affected individual is often completely unaware of his or her ailment because there are no indications or symptoms until, of course, they suffer a fracture and are then diagnosed. It is for this reason that it is referred to as a quiet killer. In addition to lowering bone density, it has the potential to negatively damage dental health.

It is critical to consume meals that are high in calcium and vitamin D in order to avoid this from occurring. Exercises like as running, walking, weight training, and stair climbing should also be included in your routine. I do, however, recommend that you get frequent physical examinations.

4. Hypertension (high blood pressure).

Approximately 1.28 billion persons aged 30-79 years are estimated to have hypertension worldwide, according to estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO). In order to qualify as a silent killer, high blood pressure must appear without any obvious signs or symptoms of illness.

It increases a person's risk of developing significant cardiovascular disorders such as heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and other conditions. Maintaining a healthy weight and undergoing frequent and regular blood pressure checks can all help to minimize your risk of getting hypertension. Additionally, consuming foods high in potassium, fiber, protein, and low in sodium, as well as exercising regularly can all help to reduce your risk.

5. Fatty liver disease.

Fatty liver disease develops gradually in the body and leaves no visible signs or symptoms in the early stages, making it a silent killer. Alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease are the two forms of fatty liver disorders.

When it comes to fatty liver disease, your food plays a critical influence in your overall health. As a result, it is critical to adopt a nutritious plant-based diet and to avoid consuming anything that contains bad fats. Maintain a healthy weight and engage in regular physical activity, as well. Finally, make sure you have regular health examinations.
