Excessive Sweating Problem Can Be A Herald Of An Underlying Medical Condition

Not too many people have a sweating problem, but those people who do have this type of problem can find their lives revolving around it. Normally although a sweating problem would be thought of as excessive sweating, the reverse of this can also be true in that some people might also suffer from a lack of sweating.

And although people who sweat excessively might wonder how such a sweating problem as a lack of sweating, could be a problem, it is nonetheless so. Both of these conditions are known health conditions, with the sweating problem of excessive sweating being known as hyperhidrosis, and the lack of sweating being known as anihidrosis.

If you suffer from either of these conditions your best recourse is to first consult with a physician as soon as possible to seek help for your condition. This is especially true if your sweating problem is only a very recent occurrence. Excessive sweating or lack of sweating, can both be a herald of an underlying medical condition, and all precautions should be taken to rule out any and all possibilities.

Of course a sweating problem doesn’t always have to be linked with an underlying medical condition. It could be due to any number of other reasons which are perfectly harmless such as being a genetic trait in your family. Not everyone sweats in the same manner or in the same way, and the trait of sweating excessively, moderately or not at all, can, and has been, passed down the family tree, many times.

You might also find that a sweating problem such as excessive sweating can occur with the onset of puberty when hormonal changes are taking place, or at a time – and it doesn’t have to be during puberty – when a person’s hormones are changing or settling down.

For instance in the case of acne, sometimes a person can coast through puberty without one blemish on their faces and when they hit adulthood, they would find themselves breaking out regularly. And although this is only an example of how certain changes in a person’s body can come about, it can hold true for a sweating problem as well.

In this case, along with, or even before, consulting with your physician to seek relief from your problem, you might want to try a few things such as changing your diet to iron out any problems. Sometimes a simple change in lifestyle or diet can help you to deal with your sweating problem. You might even find that you get other health benefits from such a simple change as well!

Attention – High Cholesterol Symptoms Could Be A Sign Of A Serious Health Problem

High cholesterol symptoms are a topic near and dear to my heart due to a close family member who struggled with atherosclerosis and ultimately coronary heart disease for years. For the most part there are no high cholesterol symptoms until a person’s health starts to unravel. The few exceptions are fat deposits in the skin and tendons forming noticeable bumps or problems with the liver or spleen producing symptoms such as severe abdominal pain.

With the two conditions above notwithstanding the most noticeable symptoms occur only after cholesterol has continued to build, narrowing arteries to a point where blood flow is restricted by about 65 percent. At this point tissues may not be able to get enough blood and oxygen. The first symptoms of narrowing of the arteries may be pain or cramps at times when blood flow cannot keep up with the tissues requirement for oxygen. An example might be chest pain because the oxygen supply to the heart is insufficient or while walking a person may experience leg cramps because of restricted blood flow through the arteries of the legs. Also, certain extremities may start to feel cold to the touch for no particular reason.

One of the real dangers in high cholesterol symptoms related diseases are that often times the progression is so gradual that you may not realize you have a serious problem until it is too late. On the other hand sometimes the first symptoms occur suddenly because the blockage occurs suddenly. An example of this would be when a blood clot lodges in an artery narrowed by with plaque, cutting off blood circulation and resulting in a heart attack or stroke.

Without a doubt my relatives high cholesterol symptoms were of the first variety, and driven by a combination of smoking and a diet filled with high saturated fat foods. As the condition worsened his activity level declined which likely accelerated arterial blockage by prompting LDL (bad cholesterol levels) to rise and helpful HDL (good cholesterol levels to drop). He also experienced shortage of breath when walking more than a few hundred yards, walking up an incline, or playing a game of golf. In other words activities that should not cause shortage or breath issues.

In summary, when high cholesterol symptoms do appear you likely have a serious problem on your hands and a doctor’s should be in order. Regardless, whether you are starting to see high cholesterol symptoms or not it is never too early or too late for that matter, to start exercising (if possible), quit smoking if you smoke, reduce the intake of saturated fat, and consider a if you need that little extra boost. If your cholesterol is out of control there is no better day to make a positive change than today!

Skin Care Treatment Products for Acne May Exacerbate the Problem

Although acne is generally considered to be an ‘oily skin’ problem caused by excess sebum production, those with dry skin are just as susceptible. In fact, it is possible that that adult acne – now affecting about 20 percent of the population and climbing – is caused by years of using harsh skin care treatment products that eventually result in dry skin, which then leads to acne. Acne treatment products then further dry the skin and you’re off into the vicious cycle of the cure becoming the cause. How do you handle this? As always, prevention is the easiest route – best done by choosing skin care treatment products that don’t cause dry skin or other damage – but, no matter what your skin type, if you understand what causes acne, you will find it much easier to prevent, and cure. Here’s how it works.

The skin is naturally designed to protect itself: the surface consists of natural oils and dead skin cells that, together, form a protective layer that prevents damage and repels bacteria. If your skin is oily, the pores can become clogged with excess oil. If your skin is dry, the pores can become clogged with excess dead skin cells. No matter what your skin type, the process from that point is the same: the clogged pores then develop into blackheads or whiteheads that get infected with bacteria, become inflamed and turn into the pimples or pustules known as acne.

Skin care treatments for acne invariably make the underlying problem worse: they usually contain sulfur, resorcinol or benzyl peroxide, all of which dry up excess oils but, in the process, cause dry skin. So, even though your acne may have started because your skin was oily, it will now continue because your skin is dry. You’ve traded one problem for another. In fact, you’ve actually added another problem: because dry skin is easily creased and develops fine lines and wrinkles, you’ve also accelerated the aging process. Blotting the excess oil may be just as effective and doesn’t make the situation worse.

Truthfully, if we simply stopped using harsh, chemical cleansing and other skin products, the incidence of acne would be greatly reduced. Switch to mild skin care treatment products that don’t damage the skin and you could save yourself or your teenager the discomfort and embarrassment of acne and the problem of finding a cure.
