Health Tip and Practice Info
May is Osteoporosis Awareness Month
Osteoporosis is called a “silent disease” because it thins and weakens bones without showing symptoms until bone loss has progressed to an advanced stage. It affects
both men and women, although women are at greater risk.
Prevention can begin at any age, ideally in the teen years. Make sure that you get your recommended amounts of calcium and Vitamin D and avoid smoking.
Early detection is easy. If you are more than 45 years old, ask your doctor if you should have a bone density scan to detect loss of bone mass. The scan is safe, quick and painless and is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare. Several treatment options are also available to treat osteoporosis, should you find that you need them.
More information about bone scanning.
Allergy season continues
If you are one of the 35 million Americans who suffer from seasonal allergies, you may already have noticed a change in the air.
Sometimes extra precautions during the height of allergy season are necessary to avoid severe reactions. Increasing your knowledge about allergies could help prevent you or a loved one from requiring emergency care for allergy-related attacks.
You can learn the daily pollen count in your area by visiting www.pollen.com and entering your zip code.
The continuing advice of you doctor is crucial to the long-term treatment of allergic conditions.
