Health screening for women against a disease are very much needed to the society. As we know that “prevention is better than cure” nearly 30% of the women are suffering from diseases such as anemia, vitamin deficiencies, protein shortage etc., special camps were conducted for these women. They were taught with good hygienic, cleanliness etc., Taking this in account SAJAR HEALTH EDUCATIONAL AND CHARITABLE TRUST conducted Women health screening camp on 18.04.17 .
SAJAR HEALTH EDUCATIONAL AND CHARITABLE TRUST has conducted women health screening camp in Ammapatty village. Following screening processes held awareness given on following topics among these women.Blood Pressure Screening:
Have women blood pressure checked every 3 to 5 years. If the top number (systolic number) in between 120 to 139, or the bottom number (diastolic number) is between 80 to 89 mm Hg, women should have it checked every year. If the top number is greater than 140 or the bottom number is greater than 90, schedule an appointment with the provider. If they have diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, or certain other conditions, they may need to have your blood pressure checked more often, at least once a year. Watch for blood pressure screenings in your area.CHOLESTEROL SCREENING:
Recommended starting age for cholesterol screening are in-between 20 to 45 for women. Women with normal cholesterol levels do not need to have the test repeated for 5 years. Repeat testing sooner than needed if changes occur in lifestyle (including weight gain and diet). If you have diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, or certain other conditions, you may need to be monitored more closely.DIABETES SCREENING:
If their blood pressure is above 135/80 mm Hg, your provider will test your blood sugar level for diabetes. If they have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 and have other risk factors for diabetes, they should be screened .Having a BMI over 25 means that you are overweight. Asian Americans should be screened if their BMI is greater than 23.BREAST SELF-EXAM AND MAMMOGRAM:
Women may do a monthly breast self-exam. However, experts do not agree about the benefits of breast self-exams in finding breast cancer or saving lives. Talk to your provider about what is best for you. Screening mammogram is not recommended for most women under age 40. If you have a mother or sister who had breast cancer at a young age, consider yearly mammograms. They should begin earlier than the age at which their youngest family member was diagnosed. If they have other risk factors for breast cancer, your provider may recommend a mammogram, breast ultrasound, or MRI scan. Contact your provider right away if you notice a change in your breasts, whether or not you do breast self-exams.If you are between ages 20 to 40, your provider may do a clinical breast exam.PELVIC EXAM AND PAP SMEAR:
Beginning at age 21, women should have a pelvic exam and Pap smear every 3 years to check for cervical cancer. If they are over age 30 and your Pap smear and HPV test are normal, you only need a Pap smear every 5 years. If they have had your uterus and cervix removed (total hysterectomy) and you have not been diagnosed with cervical cancer you may not need to have Pap smears. Women who are sexually active should be screened for Chlamydia and gonorrhea
Helping people overcome addictions, fears, emotional and physical trauma, personal issues and other problems is truly rewarding.
