Reye’s syndrome is a very rare disease that affects the liver and brain. Children that have a metabolic disorder and are recovering from a virus are the ones most often affected by this disease. Since Reye’s syndrome can be life threatening, early diagnosis and treatment is essential to helping the child recover from the disease. Aspirin has recently been linked to the development of Reye’s syndrome, so use caution whenever giving aspirin to teenagers and children, especially if they are recovering from a viral infection.
Menopause typically occurs in women when they enter their 50’s but can occur earlier in some women. Menopause is usually characterized by the lack of a menstrual cycle for more than one year. As women age, their body’s reproductive hormones naturally diminish and decline. A hysterectomy can also cause early menopause, as this procedure surgically removes the uterus and ovaries. Before menopause begins, there are a variety of symptoms that will occur. A complete list of early signs and symptoms of menopause can be found below.
