Female healthcare is a significant part of the plan designed by countries for improving the overall health and wellness condition of a population. According to statistical evidence collected and evaluated over the course of years, it has been found that women are more likely to suffer from different diseases in comparison to men.
This finding has brought to light the need for a sound and multi tiered healthcare plan for women, who are at a higher risk of suffering from different chronic diseases. It is a fact concerning women all over the world, and that is why it has become important now, more than ever before, to assign due importance to female healthcare.
But with expensive treatment options, many women are not able to get treatment in time, which only worsens their medical condition. That is why there has been a rising trend observed in the number of female patients traveling across the border to consult physicians in Mexico for their different medical conditions.
Women more likely to suffer from conditions than men!
According to findings, women are three to four times more likely to have gall stones compared to men. 18% of the women in the United States suffer from migraine headaches which leaves 6% of the affected men far behind.
These alarmingly high statistical findings only serve to highlight the importance of sound healthcare policies for women. With women of all ages at a high risk of suffering from a list of chronic diseases, it is essential to allocate due importance to female healthcare.
Women allocate great importance to their wellbeing, and many who lack the proper health coverage or insurance coverage, look for an alternate solution to get the quality medical treatment they need.
There are some major medical disorders which have a high occurrence in women of all age brackets as compared to the other gender. It is thus, important that women get themselves checked by experienced professionals who will offer prompt diagnosis and early treatment of the condition before it reaches a chronic stage.
Physicians in Mexico offer high quality treatment at an affordable rate, and patients can get fast consultation and appointments, as there are no long waiting lines to delay the treatment process.
Women are more likely to suffer from different types of auto immune disorders compared to men. Lupus, multiple sclerosis and Sjogren’s syndrome have been more common in women. The body starts attacking its own tissues in autoimmune diseases, and around 12 million Americans suffer from various types of this specific medical condition. It is an alarming fact that around three fourths of the total 12 million patients are women!
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder which affects a total of 1.3 million Americans out of which two thirds consist of the female population.
It is a condition which affects both men and women, in which the bone density decreases. Yet findings show that women take the lead over men in this condition as well. The studies have given numbers to show that one in every two women over 50 is at a great risk of suffering from a fracture due to osteoporosis.
A disturbing fact is that most women over 65 lose almost half of their total skeletal mass, which puts them at a seriously high risk of suffering major fractures.
Diseases in Women
Urinary tract infections and cystitis along with kidney infections affect the health of women. The imbalance of acid concentration in the urine causes bacterial infections, which cause serious discomfort to the patient. Proper diet and high levels of water intake are the solution to the problem. Delayed treatment can make the infections severe and chronic.
Women show high statistics of suffering from cancer in certain female organs like the breasts, uterus, ovary and cervix. In addition to all these specific cancers, a segment of the female population also suffers from pancreatic cancer, as well as lung and colorectal cancer.
Breast cancer is known to be the 2nd highest cause for a high female mortality rate in the world. Findings suggest that women in U.S. have a 12.4% chance of suffering from breast cancer, while ovarian cancer is known as the silent killer and is difficult to detect. Studies suggest that age and genes are factors which determine chances of ovarian cancer in women. Lung cancer is another leading cancer in women, while women who have been diagnosed with uterus, ovary or breast cancer, have a high chance of suffering from colorectal cancer.
Any imbalance in the yeast or bacterial level in the vagina can cause an overgrowth of bacteria in the vaginal area, which is termed as yeast infection. Though yeast infections are not actually dangerous but they can prove to be highly uncomfortable to live with. The medical condition causes itching in the infected region along with other symptoms. It is important to consult a doctor for advice early on.
Treatments for all these medical conditions, diseases and disorders are highly expensive. Most require surgical procedures for effective treatment, along with a number of complicated tests and lab procedures with medicines, which add up to give an astronomically large sum on a medical bill.
Most women cannot afford such expensive treatments, even with healthcare programs and insurance coverage. Some women even have an insurance policy which doesn’t provide coverage for such an expensive treatment while others have no means to make payments of the high deductibles.
Everyone looks for an affordable option, which also acts as a quality treatment option. That is why many patients travel across the border to consult physicians in Mexico. Female healthcare options are affordable there and of high quality as well, and many women opt for medical travel to get timely and affordable high quality treatment for their medical conditions.
