Find Out the Connection of Hormones and Your Heart!

Symptoms of hormone imbalance can be frustrating. Hormones also play a large role in your heart health. Some hormones that have the greatest impact on heart health include cortisol, thyroid hormones, and estrogen. Cortisol: We all know that stress plays an important role in our health. Research has shown that when the body is under stress it releases high levels of Cortisol. This in turn effects many risk factors that increase you risk of heart disease including high cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure and blood sugar. Cortisol is also an anti-inflammatory, so too little can also become a problem. Your body does not know the difference between emotional stress and physical stress so it is important to be aware of both. Thyroid Hormones: Thyroid hormones play a pivotal role in your heart health. They are responsible for how hard and fast your heart beats, as well as cholesterol and blood pressure levels.If you suffer from low thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism), you have a slower heart rate.

If you have too high of the thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism), it can also cause high blood pressure and trigger atrial fibrillation and heart palpitations. Estrogen: Hormonal ...

January is Cervical Cancer Screening Month!

January is Cervical Cancer Screening Month, and Walnut Lake wants you to know that there’s a lot you can do to prevent cervical cancer. Each year, more than 11,000 women in the United States get cervical cancer. HPV (human papillomavirus) is a very common infection that spreads through sexual activity, and it causes almost all cases of cervical cancer. About 79 million Americans currently have HPV, but many people with HPV don’t know they are infected. The good news? The HPV vaccine (shot) can prevent HPV. Cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening tests and follow-up care. In honor of National Cervical Cancer Screening Month, Walnut Lake encourages: Women to start getting regular cervical cancer screenings at age 21 Parents to make sure pre-teens get the HPV vaccine at age 11 or 12 Teens and young adults also need to get the HPV vaccine if they didn’t get it as pre-teens. Women up to age 26 and men up to age 21 can still get the vaccine. You and your family members may be able to get these services at no cost to you. Check with your insurance company to learn more ...
