New Years resolutions

New Years Resolutions are common. The most common is weight loss though some people choose to stop smoking, exercise more, be more positive, spend more time with family, get more involved in the community and more. Most people don't stick to their resolution, but why? What is holding you back from your intent now? To understand this,you need to ask yourself why do you want to lose weight or exercise more? Without asking the why, the how will never stick. Looking at the model of change, give yourself room. If you "fall off the wagon", get back on.

Measles Outbreak

If you were born before 1957, no need to worry about the measles outbreak. The rest need to worry. A major reason why the measles outbreak in Disney has been able to take hold is because of the increasing number of parents who have chosen not to immunize or under immunize their children. Some of this is based on fear of vaccines causing Autim. This is based on a study which has been found to be poorly done with false data. Many studies since have proven this wrong. There are also those who feel free choice outways public  health.

Enterovirus D68

When is a cold more than a cold? Enterovirus is not new. It is one of the ever changing viruses that cause upper respiratory infections (URI). These spread rapidly during the school year in our school age children who then bring the infections home. What is new is the strain D68 is potent, causing upper and lower respiratory symptoms, especially in those with asthma or other chronic lung conditions. It is currently in the Midwest and Denver.
Symptoms: You or your child should be seen if you have a high fever, shortness of breath, wheezing or chest tightness.

Osgood Schlatter Syndrome

It has been too long since I shared helpful information. Here is a bit of helpful information.
I recently saw a growing middle schooler with Osgood Schlatter Syndrome. It is swelling on the tibia, just below the knee cap. We see it in active kids, when they are growing fast. Jumping, running, basketball, football, soccer etc are activities that aggravate it. Rest, ice and time help it quiet down. Taping can help too. Here is a link to a video on how to tape for this.

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is all too common. 90% of the time it is classified as essential. It is not that there is one thing wrong with the body, but a multitude of issues at hand. Often times there is family history underlying the elevated blood pressure. Concurrent conditions such as diabetes are also common. The nice thing about high blood pressure is the patient can have control, if not 100% on the pressure, then partially through life style.
