RAMADAN

Ramadan (/ˌræməˈdɑːn/; Arabic: رمضان‎ Ramaḍān is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.

FASTING

Fasting is the willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast or dry fasting is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period.

Men’s Health | Enlarged Prostate Symptoms and Treatments

Did you know that over 600,000 men in Australia are affected with problems with their prostate? With over 30% of men over 50s having problems with their urinary system.

Today’s talk is all about Male’s Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia otherwise known as enlarged prostate - which is part of the male reproductive system.

SYMPTOMS

The symptoms you should look out for is any change or difficulty in passing water. Which can be categorised with problems holding your water.

- If you feel like you need to go to the toilet a lot more frequently.

- If you have problems passing water, for example getting the stream going or maintaining the stream, or experiencing any bleeding in the urine stream.

- If you experience dribbling after going to the toilet.

These are very important symptoms to look out for and you should see your doctor as soon as you notice them, as the quicker the symptoms can be managed the better the outcome is.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE DOCTOR

You can expect to have a blood test as well as an internal examination. Which is where one gloved lubricated finger is inserted into the back passage to detect an enlarged prostate or suspicious nodules.

TREATMENT

Treatment generally tends to be medication which can be started as soon as you notice symptoms, or alternatively you could be referred to a urologist for further investigations or for surgical treatment.

PREVENTION

The main take away point is that we want to prevent any long term bladder problems, and the way to do that is by raising awareness in the general population and making sure that if you suffer from any urinary problems to come see your doctor as soon as you can. It is a very common problem and your GP can guide you through this.

Australian GP Graduation Experience | RACGP 💖

GRADUATED!! For the third time - yes, that’s right, after transferring from the NHS over to the lovely Gold Coast, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners have honoured me as one of their new fellows.

Join me as we head to Brisbane’s Convention Centre together and graduate!

For all you budding GPs out there, I have to say that it is a great career to pursue, getting to help people is the best part of my job. It’s hard work - 5 years of med school, 5 years of post-graduate studies and experience as a NHS doctor, 6 months of experience working as an Australian GP and of course competing the essential CEMP training course. But, it’s worth it.

The RACGP vision is for a ‘Healthy Profession, Healthy Australia’. The organisational mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of all people in Australia by supporting GPs, general practice registrars and medical students through its principle activities of education, training and research, and by assessing doctors’ skills and knowledge, offering ongoing professional development activities, developing resources and guidelines, advocating for GPs on issues that affect their practice, and developing standards that general practices use to ensure high quality healthcare.
