It’s no secret that your body is changing and growing at a rapid rate. While it’s obvious that you look different on the outside, many things are also happening to you on the inside (both physically and emotionally) that signal you’re becoming an adult. Most important, you’re likely becoming more independent and starting to make more of your own choices.
The physicians at UPMC want you to know that the health habits you develop now will have long-lasting effects throughout your lifetime. Healthy habits will make you feel good and look good and will help you do your best in school, work and sports. They might also prevent diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke and some cancers later in life.
