Better Health: 2010

Issue 1: Digestive Health

The digestive system is vast and complex, spanning a large area of the body that includes many vital organs. Its central role in our overall health is often taken for granted – until something goes seriously wrong.

In this first Better Health issue of the New Year, we’re devoting special attention to the important issues concerning digestive system health.

Issue 2: Healthier Women

Welcome to Better Health, the magazine for patients and friends of Bumrungrad International.

Women face a host of unique health issues. That fact becomes apparent well before adulthood, as girls enter puberty and begin to experience significant physical changes.

In this issue of Better Health, we’re devoting special attention to the important health issues affecting women throughout their childbearing years, from puberty through menopause.

Issue 3: 30th Anniversary

In this issue, we’re devoting special attention to chronic health conditions, beginning on page 4, with an in-depth look at diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension). These two diseases share many similarities; both are experiencing painfully high growth rates in Thailand and around the world, and both share risk factors including obesity, unhealthy lifestyle choices, and family history.
