Women: are encouraged to earn more but health?

In recent years women have made fundamental changes in their role as societal gender. Now, sildenafil Does that mean I have won? The dangers of fulfilling multiple roles for health.

"There are many disquisitions we might consider as we consider how to" win "or" lose ", but there is no doubt that today's woman is inserted differently in society "is questioned Alicia Ciapponi, Cardiologist at La Posada del Qenti Medical Spa & Resort .

If anything is no doubt that the woman began to "snap" to be present in different areas such as professional, managers, political, business, research, cultural, etc.. Demonstrated its ability not only intellectually, but provided the sensitivity, practicality and organizational capacity that characterized as gender.

This multiplicity of roles and wear this generates, brings distress, exhaustion and lack of personal care as to the health, coupled with unhealthy habits such as smoking, little rest, poor diet and low physical activity.

"Cardiovascular disease, is the leading cause of death worldwide. Statistics show that the number of women with events and complications of this etiology, are increasingly frequent and younger ages "indicates.

While most people have the main cause of death in women with breast cancer and uterine, statistics show that only the 6%. However reaches cardiovascular pathology 60% especially in perimenopause.

Risk factors

"We know that the base of the marker of vascular disease and its development, risk factors are. Of these we highlight: Hypertension, diabetes, obesity, dyslipidemia, smoking, inactivity and stress "points.

In most cases the genetic basis is present, but in a low percentage. The real "modulators" are lifestyle.

"Obesity starts to appear as a real" pandemic "because of the poor quality and quantity of food, the percentage of hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia and physical inactivity also secondary to the metabolic disorder, begin to increase. Is enhanced with the sedentary (less free time, technology, computerized society, etc.) and mainly with the stress, "says.

The danger of distress is the loss of balance between our defenses and assaults. "It's less now considered within the scientistic interpretation. However I believe that is one of the leading causes in today's society, to initiate this cascade of negative health factors, considering how "systematic" and comprehensive is our body. The trigger psycho-neuro-endocrine alterations that would result in the occurrence of one or more dysfunctions and pathologies "emphasizes.

The effective and efficient strategy to lower these statistics is to control risk factors and achieve healthy habits yet, need to start considering that the methods used are not correct and that the current health benefits costs as demonstrated.

Ultimately, women, in your opinion, have begun to change. "We walk. There are many things still (discrimination, postponement, violence, etc.). This change also men have an important place. Both should be arranged in a plane of equality in which "shared responsibilities" and the task is similar to duties and opportunities, without competition, "concludes.

Be healthier, live more safely

Interdisciplinary approach. Five specialists spoke on human security from the perspective of health. They emphasized the need for self-care.

Health as a crucial factor for the quality of life of people and human security. That was the inspiring concept of a round table which Raúl cardiologist participated Breglia, shop Public Health specialist Carlos Gatti, website like this Cristina's degree in Nursing Cometto, gynecologist and head of the Department of Gynecology and Hector Ferreyra infectologist Alberto Dain, Blas Pascal University, under a professorship awarded the Unesco study center.

The human security approach from health has a story, explained at the opening of the meeting Alberto Ferral, Secretary of Extension and University Relations Institutions. "In 1989, UNESCO made its first assessment of human security from the viewpoint of cultural and educational. Ten years later came the concept of human security as fundamental to the quality of life of people factor ", illustrated.

From the perspective of cardiology, Breglia highlighted the social impact of diseases and risk factors widespread in society today, as obesity, Diabetes, hypertension (HTA) and smoking.

He stressed that the four have common points. "For a long time does not cause discomfort, pain, or other nuisances and, therefore, in lead to prevent ni take action, but eventually entail serious problems ", expressed, adding that self-care is essential.

Breglia recalled that obesity has become a major public health problem, and affecting 1000 million people worldwide. He noted that, as a result of overweight and bad habits, diabetes increases dramatically worldwide. The same with regard to the HTA, life of charged 50 Argentine thousand per year. "Need not reach these patients amputations, eye problems or heart, it is necessary to educate the self ", emphasized. He highlighted the role of the patients themselves in preserving their health and quality of life: "Prevent and, in case of illness, controlled, is safer to live ".

In this line, Gatti subrayó: "A salvation is a work, desire, hope and also a search ".

He stressed that children who do not attend school, older adults who are convulsed by political problems, to name a few, are social indicators of human insecurity; and also mentioned more specific issues, as security against accidents and the importance of vaccination.

I said, also, the need to "unify the actions of the state to human security reaches the last person".

A su turno, Cometto said that human security is the absence of fear and deprivation. "It's dignity, marrow of life of all people ", plotted and considered that self-esteem, self-realization, autonomy, social inclusion and participation are key factors in achieving the health and welfare of the individual and community.

Health in Women. Ferreyra focused on the protection of human security of women and, on the one hand, stressed that it is necessary to "encourage proper sexual and reproductive health". "Everyone should have a safe sexual life and power to choose when and how to reproduce", added.

He also stressed on the prevention of the two most common cancers in women, breast which are first and, then, the cervix. Regarding the latter, argued that Pap was the first secondary prevention paradigm and emphasized the national government initiative to vaccinate against HPV to all girls 11 years old.

Breast cancer, in return, begins to appear in middle age, so all women should be rigorously screening mammograms. "The gynecologist has an educational obligation", recalled.

Diseases of poverty. At the end of the talk, Alberto Dain referred to poverty as a basic factor of human insecurity and stage for the development of pathologies. He described: "Infectious diseases are the sentinels of civilization, They are a mark of the quality of life of a population ".

"Some of the factors of poverty that lead to the development of infectious diseases are selling unpasteurized milk, which came to pass in Argentina, lack of access to drinking water, poor personal hygiene, poor diet, malnutrition, overcrowding, ignorance, illiteracy, street food unhandled, lack of drugs and vaccines, poor medical training and sexual promiscuity, among others ", indicated.

All the experts agreed that human security does not mean just think about security against violence, but in a much more holistic and diverse way. In this sense, Gatti said a sentence of Cordoba Medical Mirta Roses, Director of the Pan American Health Organization: "The human security is a child who dies, a disease that does not spread, a job that is not removed, ethnic division that does not explode into violence, a dissident who was not silenced. Human security is not a concern with weapons, is a concern for the life and dignity ".


Obesity: Century Epidemic 21

Surgery plays a key role in the treatment of morbid obesity, more about but it is one more link in the chain that are members of a multidisciplinary team.

Obesity can be defined as a chronic disease, approved Epidemic, metabolic, multifactorial origin; characterized by an excess oily body, whose magnitude and distribution of the patient's health condition.

Already in ancient Greece, some effects of the disease were known, Hippocrates obesity associated with sudden death more than 2000 years old.

Obesity increases the risks of associated diseases such as hypertension, diabetes tipo 2, neoplasms, psychological disorders, depression, loss of self esteem etc.. This disease is determined by genetic and environmental factors. Currently starts from childhood by poor eating habits, food scraps, lack of caloric expenditure, little physical activity, few hours of sports, because of the convenience of this time, for example, using the remote control at the TV, Play Station, etc.

In about 30% of children affected, both parents are also. The risk is four times greater if one parent is obese and up to eight if both are.

In 2004, the World Health Organization declared obesity as the "epidemic of the century" (Resolution WHA 57.17) and estimated that 2015 will be in the world 2.300 billion overweight adults and more than 700 million will be obese.

How to measure? By determining the body mass index (I.M.C. = Weight / height squared).

Between 18 and 25 BMI is considered normal weight, more than 40, is considered morbidly obese, ie, with greatly increased risk of cardiovascular complications-, metabolic, osteo-articulares, etc..

It is estimated that in the province between 1% and 3% of people are morbidly obese and it is these patients who they should be considered as candidates to be surgically. Surgery plays an important role in the treatment of morbid obesity, but it is a link in the chain that meet the other members of the multidisciplinary team (clinical, Endocrinologists, psychologists, Nutritionists, physiotherapists, PE teachers).

Bariatric surgery weight loss guarantees, Most reverses associated diseases, prolongs life expectancy, esteem recovers, social and labor reinsertion.

In 2004 in the first Córdoba Hospital Bariatric Surgery Program was created in a public institution in the country, ministerially recognized to attend free of charge to needy patients and uninsured; currently continues to assist with techniques developed at international level; as by- Gastric pass, Vertical sleeve gastrectomy laparoscopically; depending on the Bariatric Surgery Section of General Surgery.

In 2007 and Decree 26396 was seen nationally as a disease. And in 2009 law was passed eating disorders. In 2005, el Apross (the social work of public employees) approach pioneered coverage of this disease in morbidly obese patients and cover surgical practice with multidisciplinary groups. Recently introduced a program that covers all patients from those with overweight-to-obese serious, emphasizing prevention, promotion and comprehensive treatment.

In short, I can say that today you can help these patients safely within a Bariatric Surgery Program and the indication for surgery should be made by a multidisciplinary group.

But the best treatment "is prevention", encourage sports, walks, eat healthy foods.

Today, in our province, All patients, with the sin coverage, can be treated.
