Question description

  • List predisposing factors for disease based on your own family history, and describe what the effect is when some of the factors are combined.  
    • Each of these factors alone creates unique risks for illness. In combination, risks become more than cumulative. The whole is greater than just the sum of the parts. For example, patients with a family history of diabetes are at greater risk for health issues if they also smoke, are obese, and have an inactive lifestyle.
  • In your discussion, divide the factors by Changeable Factors and Non-changeable factors with examples of each factor.
    • Which risk factors for developing specific illnesses cannot be altered?
    • List a few diseases that are more common in men than in women.
