Midlife Medical Handbook
Midlife Medical HandbookGunilla Hasselgren, illustrated by Kari Modén
Welcome to my midlife medical handbook that will guide you through the many symptoms and thoughts that arise when you’re in your 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s and have no choice but to put up with it!”
That is how Gunilla Hasselgren, GP and renowned from the popular Swedish television programme Fråga doktorn (Ask the doctor), introduces her medical handbook: a supportive and inspirational reference book and goldmine for those of you that have left your youth behind you but that hopefully have many wonderful years ahead to look forward to!
When we reach so-called middle age, so much happens to the body and the mind, both in a positive and negative sense. The idea of this book is to provide you with level-headed knowledge about the most common illnesses and symptoms, help you formulate questions to yourself and the medical profession, give you advice on what you can do yourself and give you some scientific reminders that will make you stop and think. How do you want to life your life now and what about when you get older?
The book is divided into four sections: Health & Lifestyle, Illnesses & Treatment, Ordinary Medicals and Your Care and includes illnesses and aches and pains listed in order of how common they are under the parts of the body.
Kari Modén’s colourful illustrations are a source of important information and are supplemented with masses of facts, advice and tips.
