Mountains, coconut trees, corals, clear blue seas.. sounds too good to be true. ⛰🥥🏝 I’m thrilled to be working in this tropical paradise for the next two weeks.

What I’ve noticed so far is the hotter climate. UV index is high everyday so whilst I’m here I’m encouraging you all to come in and have a skin check.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Australia: sun, beaches, rainforests and..vitamin D deficiency? ☀️ It’s hard to believe that despite having such great climates, 1 in 4 Aussies are thought to be vitamin D deficient with 7% of us having a moderate or severe deficiency.

Vitamin D is a hormone in our body that regulates our calcium levels in our blood. It’s therefore important for good bone and muscle health. Recent research has shown that having a deficiency is linked to an increased risk of bowel cancer, heart disease and auto-immune diseases.

Exposure to UVB radiation (from the sun) is the main source of vitamin D. Once we’re exposed to this our body goes through a number of changes to make vitamin D. You can also get vitamin D through some dietary sources such as milk, oily fish and eggs.

There are certain groups of people who are at risk of deficiencies, including people with naturally dark skin as the pigment inside skin (melanin) acts as a filter to UVB radiation. Older frail adults, those wearing concealing clothing for religious or cultural reasons and night shift workers are also at risk.

The safest time to get your UVB radiation from the sun is when the UV index is below 3. If the UV index is above 3 be sure to wear protection, most people will get their quota of vitamin D through a few minutes of day to day activity.

So Australia, let’s get our bones nice and strong for 2019 🦴💪 Take care and stay healthy x

It’s Coeliac Awareness Week!

Coeliac disease is a serious medical illness that affects 1 in 70 Australians, however 80% who are affected remain undiagnosed.

Coeliac disease mainly affects parts of the small bowel. It happens when the gut reacts to gluten which is present in foods made from wheat, barley and rye.

What are the symptoms?

The symptoms include tummy ache, tiredness and weight loss. You may find that the symptoms disappear if you do not eat foods containing gluten.

How can I test for Coeliac disease?

Your doctor may organise a blood test, however you will need to have eaten a diet containing gluten for at least 6 weeks before the test is performed. Your doctor may also wish to refer you to a specialist for more specific investigations.

How is Coeliac Disease managed?

It is really important that if you are diagnosed with Coeliac disease to avoid any foods that contain gluten. Sometimes seeing a dietician can help too.

If you have any concerns or would like more information, pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
