A Word about Prevention
Preventative health care is a very important part of our practice. The key screenings which are recommended by Cancer Care Ontario are for breast, colon and cervical cancers. Pap tests are now recommended for cervical cancer screening every three years starting at age 21. This applies to most women, with a few exceptions. Colon cancer screening with either stool for occult blood or colonoscopy is recommended for men and women over 50 years. Screening mammograms are recommended regularly every 1-2 years for women over 50. Discuss these preventative health measures at your next visit.
Almost 1.5 million Ontarians have diabetes. Most can lead healthy lives if they eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, maintain a healthy weight and manage blood glucose levels, taking insulin if needed. If you're living with diabetes, make sure you see your doctor regularly 3-4 times per year to monitor your health. This can help you manage your diabetes and avoid complications.
