Welt, a form of blood loss, is a chronic condition that is believed to have originated in ancient Egypt.
Welt can be caused by infections such as strep throat or from trauma, such as falling off a cliff.
We’ve seen a lot of media coverage about Welt and its impact on women over the years, but the disease has also been linked to a range of other ailments, including obesity and cardiovascular disease.
Here’s a look at some of the other medical conditions that can affect Welt.
A common complaint in the medical community is that Welt is too often overlooked in the diagnosis of other medical problems, such the flu, heart disease, and diabetes.
A 2015 study from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that women are more likely to get Welt if they have chronic conditions, such asthma, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
Women who have chronic illnesses are also more likely than men to have Welt in the same area of their body, such areas as the buttocks, armpits, stomach, and genitals.
Women are also over-diagnosed in Welt-related medical conditions.
A study from University of Pittsburgh found that over 90% of women diagnosed with Welt received no medical attention.
According to the CDC, women have been over-relying on Welt treatments for decades, including the antibiotic sulfa, the anti-inflammatory naproxen, and the antibiotic zafranil.
In 2016, the CDC announced it would be investigating Welt to determine if these treatments could be used to treat other diseases.
The results of that investigation are still pending.
