Resources: Military service members and veterans face many of the same challenges as civilians, but also different issues that are related to their service. You'll find a list of diseases and conditions that are common among veterans here: http://www. Publichealth. Va.gov/diseases-conditions. Asp, and a list of health concerns related to specifice conflicts here: http://www. Va.gov/oaa/pocketcard/unique. Asp
Way too broad: Unfortunately this is a question that has no answer. There is no medical condition specific to this group of individuals and thus no special warnings to give you. This is not how medicine works. It is always best to be specific about your worry; your symptoms; your specific concerns.
Sport dependent: It depends on which sport. Injury and wear to the joints can lead to premature arthritis. This is the most common orthopaedic issue aging athletes have to deal with.

Moldy home: Living in a damp, moldy home can expose the patient to recurrent sinus and/or respiratory issues. Some of the exposed molds can be especially toxic including black mold. It is very important to have professional remediation to clean up and effectively remove all the mold.See 1 more doctor answer

Cavities, Gums top 2: Tooth decay affects more than one-fourth of U.S. Children aged 2–5 years and half of those aged 12–15 years. About half of all children and two-thirds of adolescents aged 12–19 years from lower-income families have had decay. Advanced gum disease affects 4%–12% of U.S. Adults. More than 7, 800 people, mostly older americans, die from oral and pharyngeal cancers each year.See 3 more doctor answers
Prematurity: A 28 week premie will have respiratory difficulties and need artificial ventilation for a period of time. They will be unable to effectively take nutrition orally, are prone to intestinal disorders, infections, brain hemorrhages and loss of vision. NICU care of the premie has progressed tremendously, and these babies have fewer complications and usually do surprisingly well.

Autoimmune disease: Many patients with maysthenia have other autoimmune disorders. Autoimmune thyroid disease is common, but many other autoimmune diseases may occur. The treatment of myasthenia, particularly with steroids, may cause problems. Osteoporosis is a major problem with chronic steroid therapy.
Binge eating: The prevalence of binge eating disorder (bed) is estimated at 1-5% of the general population -- with women comprising 60% of these, men 40%. (all types of eating disorders are more common in women, though.) bed is often associated with depression; people also feel a lot of shame about it, which can delay getting help. Bed may be more common than other eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, etc).
In perimenopause, with no other health problems, is it common to get only 3-4 hours of sleep a night every night for years?
Yes: I have had patients tell me this, although as you already know, that's not a healthy amout of sleep. Women with insomnia need to address. Is it not falling to sleep or waking and not being able to get back to sleep. Do you exercise cardiovascularly every day for at least 30-40 min? Are you a smoker? Drinker? Coffee drinker? Sleep hygeine is a science and I'm sure you can get more zzzzz's!
Gingivitis: I most commonly see increased gingivitis and calculus (tartar) build up. It normally is associated with insufficient oral hygiene. Often a pregnant woman is not as careful or brushing makes them feel like vomiting so they don't do it as much. You must maintain your hygiene and still see your dentist during that time. Get probs fixed that arise as well.See 2 more doctor answers
