How do you keep warm? 🧤🧣 Winter is coming and although the cooler temperatures are welcome for most, certain medical conditions worsen such as Asthma.

The cold or damp air can enter airways causing them to spasm leading to coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest.

Symptoms can be avoided by taking the correct medication and getting an Asthma Action Plan from your GP and of course keeping warm like this fluffy kitty. 🐱

Take care and stay healthy 😘

Are you taking your pumps correctly?

Asthma affects around 2.5 million Australians - that’s 1 in every 9, and a common reason for poor control is inhaler technique.

As part of asthma week I want to make sure that all asthmatics have an up to date action plan in place. This ensures that you and others around you know what to do if your asthma worsens. So I’ll be giving you the opportunity to pop by and check your inhaler technique to make sure your getting the most out of your medication.

If you haven’t been diagnosed with asthma but have symptoms, such as breathlessness, wheezing, cough or a feeling of tightness in the chest worse in cold weather then come and see me for an examination. With the correct inhalers, asthma is easily controlled. Left alone asthma can be life threatening so it’s important that if you do have asthma you have regular check ups.

Good morning! 🌤

Parts of the Gold Coast are covered in thick smoke due to a controlled hazard reduction burn. This is expected to last until Monday 23rd July.

It’s really important that if you suffer from any breathing problems to keep your windows and doors closed. If you have medication such as inhalers keep them close at hand and if you’re having difficulties breathing please seek medical advice or pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

If you’re aged between 45 to 49 years old you may be eligible for a free health assessment to help prevent developing a chronic disease.

What does this involve?

A full medical history and examination of your heart, lungs, a blood pressure check and ECG if needed.

The health assessment is for patients who are at risk of developing a chronic disease.

But what is a chronic disease?

This is a condition that has been, or is likely to be present for at least six months, including (but not limited to) asthma, cancer, cardiovascular illness, diabetes mellitus, a mental health condition, arthritis or a musculoskeletal condition.

Drop by my clinic today for your health assessment.

Take care & stay healthy 😊

GP Advice | Free Health Check for ages 45-49

Did you know that if you’re aged between 45 to 49 years old you may be eligible for a free health assessment to help prevent developing a chronic disease?

The procedure itself consists of listing to your heart, lungs, checking your blood pressure, blood tests and an ECG, while it sounds like a lot, it usually only takes 30 minutes.

The health assessment is for patients who, in the clinical judgement of the medical practitioner and based on the identification of a specific risk factor, is at risk of developing a chronic disease. A chronic disease or condition is one that has been, or is likely to be present for at least six months, including (but not limited to) asthma, cancer, cardiovascular illness, diabetes mellitus, a mental health condition, arthritis or a musculoskeletal condition.

So if you’re aged between 45 and 49 (or know someone who is), drop in for a consultation to see if you qualify.
