Having a body weight higher than what is recommended for you can put you at risk for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and several forms of cancer. Eating a well-balanced diet and getting as much exercise as possible are the two best things you can do to maintain a healthy weight or to lose weight. If exercising is difficult for you, contact a fitness specialist about appropriate activities. (Make sure your doctor is made aware of any fitness programs you begin).
The key to early detection of breast, cervical and colorectal cancer in women (as well as other forms of cancer) is testing. Starting at age 18 a Pap test, pelvic exam and breast exam should be done every year. You should have a mammogram done each year beginning at age 40. In addition, colorectal screening should be done starting at the age of 50.
Osteoporosis is a condition that causes bones in women to become weak and brittle. If you have a disability that prevents you from taking part in weight-bearing activities such as walking, jobbing or stair climbing, your chance of developing osteoporosis may increase. Other risk factors include low body weight and low calcium intake. Bone loss usually occurs without any symptoms, so it is important to be screened for osteoporosis if you are at risk.
Factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, poor diet and obesity can lead to heart disease. The risk also increases with age. Most of these factors are controllable, so do your best to lower your risk.
Conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer and obesity can affect everyone, even those with disabilities that make it difficult for them to get around. While tending to a disability may be first on your health care list, you should still be sure to visit a physician once a year to be checked for conditions not related to your disability. Your physician can assess what you are most at risk for and suggest appropriate testing and screening.
