Health Problems That Could Be Affecting Your Career

Everybody becomes ill from time to time, and whether you’re suffering from a common cold or a stomach virus, you’re usually back to yourself within a week. However, sometimes health problems can creep up on us and affect our lives without even noticing them. This can, of course, be a problem in regards to the general quality of life and also your career. Without proper treatment, your career prospects could drop and you could begin to struggle financially. So if you’ve not been feeling yourself lately, or you want to know what to look out for, take a look at these health problems that might be affecting your career and what you can do about them!

Diabetes

Over 4 million people in the UK have diabetes, and it’s estimated that around 7 million people have prediabetes. Diabetes, whether it be type one, type two, or undiagnosed, is a very serious medical condition that shouldn’t go ignored. If you’ve been feeling fatigued, hungrier than normal, had unexplained weight loss or gain, nausea, dizziness, or even frequent trips to the toilet, then you should have a blood test to determine whether you have the disease or not. There’s plenty of treatment available and if properly taken care of, you can still live a long and successful life.

Hearing loss

Around 11 million people in the UK suffer from hearing loss and some don’t even realise it! As we age, it’s not uncommon for our hearing to deteriorate. However, taking note of any loss of hearing and seeing a professional is imperative to your ear health. An undiagnosed ear condition could lead to permanent hearing loss and may result in you needing hearing aids or a complete loss of hearing altogether.

Eyesight problems

Like your ears, it’s important to take proper care of your eyesight too. Not only will your life completely change if your eyesight is compromised, but you could be putting yourself and others in danger if not treated. Remember to have regular eye tests and take care of your eyes!

Depression

At some point or another, it’s said that everyone feels depressed. However, some people suffer from depression and it can affect your everyday life - including your career. Depression can lead to self-harm, fleeting thoughts of self-harm or worse, suicide. For your well-being and quality of life, seek help if you’re experiencing any feelings of depression.

Allergies

Finally, an estimated 2 million people in the UK are living with diagnosed food allergies, and a staggering 21 million people will have an allergy and not know about it for years on end. Allergies present themselves in many different ways such as headaches, IBS, and even skin conditions. So if you’re not feeling quite right, mention it to your Doctor as you could have an undiagnosed allergy! Flare-ups from anaphylactic shock can and will affect your career, not to mention your health!
