Most common health problems that effect women From Huffington Post
Women have a higher prevalence than men when it comes to autoimmune diseases. Estrogen may play a role in these issues according to executive director, Virginia Ladd of the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association. She lists the top seven:
Multiple Sclerosis - 2-3 more times for women than men
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Depression - Twice as common
Celiac Disease - 60-70% of women over men are diagnosed
Case List Tip For sub specialists preparing for their general boards
If you have not already done so, absolutely prioritize entering your off-specialty and office list. These will require more thought since they are out of your comfort zone. Don’t go nuts on your specialty case list – remember you’re sitting for your general boards. Also, don’t think your specialty will be obvious and somehow cut you some slack. The examiners receive only their section. So for example, if you’re a GYN ONC, your OB examiners receive only your OB case list, so your list won’t be flashing neon lights announcing that you’re an oncologist. Assume nothing and prepare for everything.
