Fancy a Cup of Coffee? ☕️ Recent research has suggested that drinking coffee can have some health benefits such as a lower risk of liver disease and some cancers.

But how much caffeine should you be drinking?

Pregnant ladies should avoid caffeine but if needed have no more than 200mg of caffeine a day. Other adults can have up to 400mg.

How much is in my drink? - 1 mug of filtered coffee 140mg - 1 mug of instant coffee 100mg - 1 mug of tea 75mg - 1 can of cola 40mg - one 250ml can of energy drink 80mg

Come and see me in clinic today for more advice and tips on healthy eating.

Did you know that the traditional PAP smear is changing in Australia?

It’s being replaced with a new Cervical Screening Programme from 1st December 2017.

What is the Cervical Screening Programme?

This is a test that is quick and simple to check the health of your cervix (neck of the womb). It is done by your health care provider.

What is different about the new programme?

The cervical screen is done in the same way as the traditional PAP smear so it will not feel any different to you.

The new test is more effective at detecting the human papilloma virus (HPV) that causes cervical abnormalities, at an earlier stage.

Who needs testing?

If you’re a woman aged between 25-74 years of age and have ever been sexually active the test is open for you every 5 years.

When shall I have a cervical screening test?

Your first test will be due at 25 years of age or two years after your last PAP test. If your result is normal you will be due in five years for your next test.

How common is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer is rare. In Australia every year around 800 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer. However most cervical cancer is preventable with regular screening.

Feel free to drop by my clinic if you have any further questions.

Take care & stay healthy
