Today is World Autism Awareness day

Autism is a life long developmental condition that affects the way an individual relates to his or her environment and their interaction with other people.

People with autism may have difficulties in social communication, social interaction and have restrictive or repetitive behaviours and interests.

In Australia, it is estimated that 1 in 100 people have autism.

It is usually diagnosed in early childhood but can be seen at any age.

There are certain milestones you can look out for in your child.

By the age of 18-24 months your child should be able to: - show interest in their peers/sibling

- Bring items to show you

- Follow your gaze to locate an object when you point

- Engage in pretend play

- Use many spontaneous single words and some two word phrases.

Autism is diagnosed by specialist healthcare professionals using various assessments.

There is a lot of support available for a child diagnosed with autism. This may include financial and community support.

For more information visit autismspectrum.org.au

If you are concerned your child is not yet reaching their milestones or are concerned about Autism, pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Just 10 days to go until the largest sporting event Australia will see this decade! ⚽️🏀🥊🤽‍♂️🏊‍♂️🚴‍♀️ I’m honoured to have been selected as a games doctor serving athletes and spectators at the heart of the Commonwealth Games Village.

Heat related illnesses such as dehydration, sun burn and sun stroke will be one of the most common presentations for medical aid. To make the most of your games experience be sure to always keep well hydrated, keep out of the sun and wear at least spf 30 sunblock. If you do feel unwell at anytime, present yourself to one of the friendly first aid team for help.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Take care and stay healthy 😊

It’s Kidney Health Week!

Did you know that 1 in 3 Australians are at an increased risk of kidney disease?

90% of kidney function can be lost without experiencing symptoms, so most people are unaware that they are affected.

But why are the kidneys so important?

We are born with 2 kidneys that are vital in maintaining your general health and wellbeing. Your kidneys filter the blood that passes through your body and remove any excess fluid and unwanted chemicals through your urine. Your kidneys are also responsible for regulating blood pressure and activating vitamin D.

What symptoms should I look out for?

Symptoms may include; high blood pressure, a change in the amount and frequency of urine passed, blood in your urine, tiredness, puffiness in your legs and shortness of breath just to name a few.

What is my risk of developing kidney disease?

Patients who suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or have a family history of kidney problems are at an increased risk.

Kidney.org.uk have created a fantastic quick & easy test to check your risk of developing kidney disease.

Don’t forget that if you do have any concerns about your kidneys a simple blood test will give you a good idea of how well they are working.

How can I keep my kidneys healthy?

Kidneys love water, so make sure you’re drinking enough to keep yourself hydrated especially in hotter, more humid climates.

Make sure you reduce salty and sugary foods as these can lead to fluid retention.

If you are concerned or have any questions drop by and see me in clinic.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
