5 Common Health Issues That Affect Women More Than Men

Prostate cancer can affect people with a prostate, while ovarian and cervical cancers can affect people with ovaries and a cervix. It's important to remember that anyone with these body parts can be any gender, like men, women, transgender folks, or non-binary individuals.

Although some health issues affect everyone equally, some illnesses are more likely to happen in women than men, for different reasons.

"Some illnesses are more common in one gender than the other. But things like genetics, hormones, body functions, or habits can play an important role," said Dr. Baldeep Kour, Professional Ayurvedacharya at Deep Ayurveda.

5 Common Health Problems for Women

Here are 5 common health issues that mainly affect women and can be pretty risky for their health.

1. Heart disease

heart disease in women

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women, primarily because it's often not diagnosed or recognized promptly. The symptoms in women can be different from those in men, which contributes to this issue. While heart disease is commonly associated with men, it affects both genders almost equally.

In medical assessments for heart disease in women risk, gender tends to place men at a higher risk percentage, possibly leading to a false sense of security. Women may also experience symptoms that aren't typically linked to a heart attack.

Common symptoms for women include chest pain or discomfort, along with shortness of breath, fatigue, and pain in the belly, back, or jaw. Other symptoms may include nausea, sweating, and difficulty sleeping.

To help take care of your heart, Deep Ayurveda has a special 30-day pack called Heart Care Ayurvedic Management. It's made with natural herbs to make your heart stronger, reduce stress, and keep your blood pressure in check. By using this herbal blend, you can give your heart the care it needs. So, if you're a woman concerned about your heart health, consider trying Deep Ayurveda's Heart Care Ayurvedic Management for 30 days.

2. Stroke

More women are killed by strokes annually compared to men. While certain stroke risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, family history, and smoking affect everyone, there are specific reasons why stroke rates are higher in women. These causes of a stroke in a woman include pregnancy, the use of birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, and frequent migraines.

If you're concerned about your risk of stroke, Deep Ayurveda offers a solution with our Anti Cholesterol Ayurvedic Management 30 Days Pack. This natural approach helps regulate lipid levels and promote overall heart health.

3. Autoimmune Disorders

Many autoimmune diseases affect women more than men, in about 75% of cases. These diseases happen when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells. Women might be more prone to these illnesses due to factors like hormones, environmental triggers, and having two X chromosomes.

Some common autoimmune diseases in women include lupus, celiac disease, thyroid issues, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and multiple sclerosis.

If you're dealing with a condition called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), where you have a low platelet count, Deep Ayurveda has a 30-day pack called ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura) Ayurvedic Management. It can help you manage your condition naturally.

4. Osteoporosis


Osteoporosis weakens bones, increasing the risk of fractures. One such disease that is highly common among Indian women is osteoporosis.

Women naturally have smaller, thinner bones and less bone tissue than men. Estrogen protects women's bones by blocking substances that harm bone cells. However, during menopause when estrogen drops, bone mass decreases.

Certain medications, cancer treatment, and genetics also raise osteoporosis risk.

To counter these female health risks, increase calcium intake, do weight-bearing exercises, and avoid smoking and excessive alcohol.

Deep Ayurveda offers the Menopause Ayurvedic Management 30 Days Pack, a holistic approach to managing menopause symptoms. With carefully chosen herbs, minerals, and vitamins, this pack reduces symptoms like irritability and hot flashes naturally. For more information, book your consultation today!

5. Alzheimer’s Disease

Women are almost twice as likely as men to develop Alzheimer’s disease. While it may seem initially linked to women living longer, research suggests there could be unique biological factors affecting brain changes and progression.

If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and seeking natural support for neurological health and cognitive function, Deep Ayurveda's Alzheimer's Management Ayurvedic Pack for 30 Days could be the solution you're looking for. 

This pack, which includes carefully formulated ayurvedic remedies, aims to provide essential support for those experiencing Alzheimer's-related neurological decline.
