This is how I would explain hypertension to a 63-year-old man, whom I will call Mr. Smith.
Mr. Smith, I hear that you have recently been diagnosed with hypertension and I would like to give you a little information and helpful tips to living with this disease. First off, hypertension is more commonly known as high blood pressure. It affects your cardiovascular system by forcing the blood against your artery walls throwing off your hearts natural homeostasis. More simply put, the smaller your arteries have become, due to fat and plaque buildup, the harder it is for your heart to push the blood through them, and the more tired it becomes. In order to correct your ...view middle of the document...

All of these tips may help your body return to homeostasis. By not following these tips and making a proactive choice to change your health, eventually your heart won’t be able to keep up and it may lead to a heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, a stroke or even death. I hope you will keep these in mind and try to start making little changes now. The little changes now could mean big changes in your future!

This is how I would explain diabetes to a 13-year-old girl, whom I will call April.

To start with let me explain a little about the disease, feel free to jump in with questions as they arise. Type 1 diabetes is also known as insulin dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes. The reason this is coming up now is because your body’s homeostasis has been thrown off by your pancreas shutting down. When your homeostasis is balanced, it is in a continuous loop. The entire homeostasis process breaks down like this, in a person without diabetes, when you eat the sugars in the food break down and stimulate your nerve receptors. Those receptors send a message to your brain, which in turn sends a message to your digestive system, specifically your pancreas in this case, to release insulin to break down that sugar. Once the sugar is broken down and the insulin has burned off your blood sugar has returned to a normal range for proper body function. In your case April, your pancreas...
