    Many of us have a love/hate relationship with our scale. It’s an easy measurement of where we stand. But experts believe dieters may be reading it all wrong. “I really think it’s a tool to keep you on track. But it’s not the only way we measure success,” says Lee Memorial Health System dietitian Carrie Bloemers. She takes a broader view, counseling clients to look for health milestones. Like limiting cardiovascular disease or better managing diabetes. “We also look at those conditions disappearing, the medications, maybe just the amount lowering or being taken off certain medications.” Body mass index and percentage of weight loss are also telling figures. They give great insight into personal fitness. Dropping clothes sizes is another measure of results. Still, if you’re tied to the scale, you’ll want to give it the proper weight. “You can definitely weigh too frequently,” says Bloemers. “Our weight fluctuates throughout the day, it fluctuates throughout the week. So looking at it as a week to week - measure consistent time of day and consistent clothing - can get a more accurate measure.” It’s best to withstand temptation to micro-measure. Weigh in no more than once a week. And don’t celebrate or despair over results. Either one can drive you to blow your diet. Finally prioritize wellness goals. “Your energy level, how you’re feeling. There’s so much more that goes into success than just that number,” says Bloemers. Stepping back from the scale may take a load off your mind.

      I had upper eyelids and lower eyelids. I felt that my eyes were looking really tired, but when I first met Dr. Evans, he explained everything in detail to me and he actually, literally, took the mirror and he showed me exactly what he was going to do. And he said to me, "Only if you feel comfortable". He called me beforehand - and that's what's impressive also - he called me beforehand to make sure I was okay and if I had my medications. And I was just really impressed with the hands-on. Then the day of the surgery he was just gentle, he showed me exactly what he was going to do. He was just very good about it. He kind of laughs, he's not a serious doctor, he's very personable. Pacific Coast Plastic Surgery today for Vigorous Massage, serving Costa Mesa, California 92627 area.

                  One of your best health advisers may be found where you’d least expect. Your pharmacist generally has a pretty good idea of where you stand with your prescription drugs. “Most patients usually see a primary care provider, but often they see specialists that may prescribe other items for that patient. So there are multiple medications coming from multiple prescribers,” explains John Armistead, director of pharmacy for Lee Memorial Health System. Think of them as a resource to carefully explain drug side affects along with how and when meds should be taken. Up to 30% of prescriptions are not refilled, leading to non-adherence and potential problems. “Medication therapy is really a key to self-care in home environment. So it’s absolutely essential that a patient understand why they are taking a medication, what side effects might they experience if they’re taking that medication, and who to contact if they do have problems.” Another stumbling block involves monitoring multiple medications. It is not unusual for an elderly or chronically ill person to take more than a dozen pills a day. The interactions with each other can create symptoms like dizziness, which can lead to accidents or injuries. “Annually you should kind of review what your medications are. Sometimes there are symptoms that you haven’t had in ten years and you’re still on the medication for that. Maybe you can be weaned back or something along those lines.” Keeping tabs on your pills and tablets - your pharmacists is in the best position to assist. “The pharmacist is the health care professional that you can see every month when you get your prescriptions refilled,” says Armistead.
