 I NEED A POSITIVE COMMENT BASED IN THIS ARGUMENT. BETWEEN 250-300 WORDS..NO REFRENCES

 

 

In the middle aged adult not smoking, being physically energetic is a crucial lifestyle any person can choose to develop their health. The three health problems I have chosen can all be controlled through physical exercise and activity failure to which they can extend to more advanced health illnesses. These issues are imperative to me as I have family members who are victims of these health problems. They include High blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, and Obesity.

High Blood Pressure is termed as diastolic blood pressure and systolic blood pressure. Universal, High Blood pressure is projected to cause 7.4 million deaths that are equivalent to 12.8% of all deaths. High Blood Pressure is a threat factor in numerous diseases such as Ischemic or Hemorrhagic Stroke, CHD, and Heart Failure. Similarly, Diabetes is also one of the leading causes of illness and loss of lives in the United States. Research done by Menke (2005), estimated the U.S. occurrence and inclinations in Diabetes and undiagnosed Diabetes to be 24.5 million of people. Diabetes also leads to diseases such as Heart Failure, Hypertension, and Cancer among others (Menke, 2015). In addition to the prevalence of Hypertension and Diabetes, more than one-third which is equivalent to 35 percent of the adults in America has Obesity. Conditions or diseases related to Obesity include Stroke, Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and some kinds of Cancer, some of the important causes of avoidable death. The projected yearly medical cost of this health issue in the U.S. was 150 billion dollars in 2008 (CDC, 2016).

As a nurse, I would educate the patients on the benefit of physical exercise to their lives. Physical activity brings several health benefits to as shown in many studies. The patients are most likely to obtain the most benefits to their health if they participate in physical activities such as aerobics, running, jogging, and athletics among others. These activities help reduce the risk of heart-related diseases and other health issues. People who do the suggested intensities of physical activity can minimize their risk of early death by 25-35% (Better Health Journal, 2016).

 

To reduce Obesity risk, I would advise the patients walk for at least 30 minutes daily  , to work their way up to 60 minutes of moderate-level aerobic exercise, 30 minutes of vigorous-level aerobic activity, or a similar combination of the two every week. Scientific indication shows that physical activity helps in maintaining a constant weight. However, the precise intensity of physical activity required to do this is not vibrant since it differs significantly from individual to individual. I would, therefore, recommend that these patients engage in physical activities two times weekly as the prescribed. Regular physical activity can also minimize the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes and metabolic condition. Metabolic Disease is a condition in which people have High Triglycerides, High Blood Pressure, HDL Cholesterol, or High Blood Sugar. Research illustrates that minor rates of these situations can be attained by engaging in physical activities of up to 2 to three hour’s weekly moderate-intensity aerobic activity. Everyone can achieve the health benefits of engaging in physical activity regardless of the age, shape or size. To get trust and cooperation of the patient, the most important is communication, as this will be the most objective way to achieve it. The relationship of the nurse patient is very important, as the safer the patient feels with the help of the nurses better results will be achieved.
