Physiology of a patient is important if the people want to maintain a healthy mind. It has been found from research data that if the person is sick physically it affects their mental health status as well. It is found from evidence that patient who have severe mental disorder to live considerably less than the people with healthy minds. It has been observed in many cases that the patients with severe mental disorders also had some form of physical ailments as well. It was found that such patients all had some sort of physical ailments as well. The patients were found suffering from nutritional deficiencies, cardio vascular problems, some of them had Diabetes mellitus, respiratory tract, and pregnancy related problems, chronic pain and muscular and skeletal deformation. It was found that these people were more susceptible to these infections causing diseases more than the people who had healthy minds. It was also found that some of the chronic illness and painful ailments also aided to the people developing mental conditions. These factors were interdependent on each other. In short it can be said that the patients who have mentally ill diseases are more susceptible are more prone to other physiological diseases (Hert et al, 2011).
Another trend that was observed was that people who had severe chronic mental illness were not treated for other bodily diseases. These people were given less patient care than patients who had strong mental abilities. The people involved in patient care did not care for the physical ailments of these people.
