We’ve all heard about the Apple Watch but have you heard of Atrial Fibrillation?

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a medical condition that affects over half a million Australians. It happens when there is a disturbance of the heart’s electrical system and so it beats out of rhythm. Some patients have no symptoms and others may feel faint, dizzy, short of breath, experience chest pain or feel their heart racing.

Healthcare professionals can detect AF by checking your heart rate, listening to your heart or with the use of an ECG. Those diagnosed with AF are at an increased risk of stroke than the general population. Treatment can include medication or a procedure to correct the heartbeat.

Smart watches, like the Apple Watch can detect an irregular heartbeat and if it has, it’s vital to seek medical help. For my full review on the Apple watch head over to youtube.com/drnora.

If you have any concerns or are worried about your risk of Atrial Fibrillation please pop by and see me in clinic.

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 😊
