Diet and Exercise Prescription- its time for a tune up
Every patient should have a customized diet and exercise plan particularly if they are high risk e.g.. diabetics, hypertension, high cholesterol, or metabolic syndrome. Talk to us, your health care professional, to design a comfortable routine. Consider a personal trainer and/or a nutritionist for extra motivation.

The truth about fish oil, is yours pure ? Is it enough?
Many fish oils are available, yet some are purer than others. You need omega 3, (DHA/EPA are most important) read the label carefully, try and get at least one gram of DHA/EPA in your fish oil capsules per day. Higher doses may be needed . Talk to your doctor.

Body Mass Index do you know yours?
Body mass index (BMI) can be derived from a formula:
( kg/m² )     (weight in pounds * 703 )
height in inches²
One should aim for 18.5-24.9, 25 and above is overweight, and over 30 is obese.


Do you need your Vitamin D levels tested?
Certain patients are Vitamin D deficient, this may be associated with osteoporosis. At risk patients should take a blood test to see if a supplement is needed. A good diet and some moderate amount of sunshine are important to keep the Vitamin D level up. Post-menopausal women and older age men are at risk for this vitamin deficiency.
