How’s your bone bank looking? 🦴🏦 Over 1 million Australians suffer from Osteoporosis, a condition where bones become brittle and weak and are more likely to fracture. This can be prevented by exercise and ensuring a good intake of calcium and vitamin D.

Exercising regularly can help achieve greater peak bone mass than those who don’t. For most people, bone mass peaks in the third decade of life, after that time we can begin to loose bone.

The best exercises to help gain bone mass are weight bearing and resistance exercises. These include walking, jogging, climbing stairs, dancing and lifting weights. It is recommended to aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise at least 3 times a week.

So if you imagine your bones as a bank, the more regular exercise you put in the less risk of osteoporosis you’ll have in the future.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

“Doc, how do I loose weight? 🤔” Is a question I hear all the time.

With summer just around the corner it’s time to get into shape.

From the Atkins diet to the South Beach diet, there are loads of ways to loose weight.

Many of these diets often cause a quick reduction in weight due to the loss of fluid in the body, rather than fat. The best and safest way to loose weight is with traditional exercise and eating healthy balanced meals.

Exercise can be fun and it’s suggested that you do at least 30 minutes of activity 5 times in a week to get your heart pumping. That could be anything from a brisk walk to kick boxing!

Let’s get fit for summer together 💪

Remember to always seek the advice of your medical doctor before going on any exercise plans. As always, if you have any questions feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy x

Type 1 Diabetes | Everything You Need to Know

From what it is, who it affects, the symptoms and how to best manage it?

SUGAR

First up. Lets talk about sugar, its everywhere. With its popular sweet taste, it’s used in food, drinks and even medicines.

Normally when your body has sugar, it produces insulin which converts the sugar into energy. The problem of course is that if you have too much sugar, too much energy will be produced for you to utilise and it’ll then be stored as fat.

Type 1 diabetes is classed as an autoimmune condition (this means that the body’s immune system which usually helps you fight diseases, actually incorrectly targets insulin producing cells). Because of this, patients who have type 1 diabetes, don’t produce insulin and so sugar simply passes through the body. Which leads to weight loss, tiredness and more severely organ damage.

SYMPTOMS

Type 1 diabetes accounts for about 10% of all cases of diabetes and is usually diagnosed in patients under the age of 30.

There are several symptoms but the commonest are:

- Passing urine more - an average person will pass urine 4-7 times in 24 hours, but diabetics may go a lot more, as the sugar is no longer being stored.

- This can then make you feel very thirsty and give you a dry mouth.

- Because of the lack of energy being produced you may end up feeling very tired, always hungry and lose weight.

- Lots of skin infections - such as recurrent boils.

- And also blurred vision, as high sugar levels can cause harm to your blood vessels including those in your eye. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of reversible blindness in Australia.

If you are concerned with any of these symptoms, please speak your doctor for a check up and blood test.

MANAGEMENT

It’s really important that if you have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, you monitor you blood sugar levels on a regular basis.

Always remember, good levels mean less risk of complications.

COMPLICATIONS

If diabetes is poorly managed there are a number of serious complications.

- Retinopathy which can lead to blindness.

- Kidney Failure which can lead to requiring dialysis.

- High blood pressure

- Depression

- Ulcers on feet

- Heart disease

- Stroke

So it is really important that if you are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, that you take your medication as described and continue to monitor your blood sugar levels. This will help you reduce your risk of developing any long term complications and lead you to live a happy and healthy life.

Take care and stay healthy.
