Compared to earlier days, today’s woman is actively working not only on the domestic front as a mother and wife but also in her office, as a professional. This only means that she is exposed to many new factors which cause ill-health.
Ailments like diabetes, osteoporosis, postpartum depression and Alzheimer's are a few of the common diseases among the female community. Simple steps like healthy diet and regular exercise can prevent some of these. If you are above the age of 35, an annual health checkup is recommended.
