Hot Health Topics as Summertime Heats Up!

Summer is here, and while the weather is warming up, so are the calls for help from people frustrated with the healthcare system. At Graith Care, we understand the challenges you face, whether it’s dealing with a new cancer diagnosis, feeling overwhelmed with pharmaceuticals, or struggling to communicate with your doctor. Our team is here to provide the support you need. Here are some essential tips and reminders to help you navigate these issues.

Cancer Tips

A new cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, but there are steps you can take to manage your health effectively:

  • Build and Protect Your Immune System Daily: Consistency is key in maintaining a strong immune system.

  • Limit Sugar Intake: Cancer cells thrive on sugar, so it's crucial to avoid or drastically limit your consumption.

  • Monitor Your Hemoglobin A1C: Ask your doctor to check this blood lab value, as it helps manage your sugar levels.

  • Explore All Options: Know both traditional and alternative treatments to make an informed decision about your next steps.

Pharmaceutical Tips

Medications can be lifesaving, but it's important to understand their impact and how to manage them:

  • Understand Your Medications: Know why you are taking each medication and its purpose.

  • Discuss Medication Plans with Your Doctor: Have a conversation about how to safely reduce or stop medications if needed.

  • Research Side Effects: Be aware of the adverse side effects associated with your medications.

Doctor Tips

Effective communication with your healthcare provider is essential for receiving the best care:

  • Prepare Your Questions: Write down any questions you have before your appointment to ensure you cover all your concerns.

  • Ensure a Thorough Exam: Make sure your doctor performs a hands-on exam for a complete assessment.

  • Express Your Concerns and Goals: Clearly communicate your primary health concerns and your goals to your doctor.
