Health Tips & Tools

These tips may be useful in understanding and managing your health concerns:

Fever and Tylenol Dosing in Children

Fever is a normal body response to infection and a symptom of an illness, not an illness itself.

GI Disorders

Learn about gastric irritants and disorders such as Peptic Ulcer Disease (PUD) and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).

Gout

Recurrent attacks of joint inflammation  caused by uric acid crystals in the joints, especially the base of the big toe. It may also involve the hand, elbow, shoulder, foot, ankle or knee.

Head Injuries

Head injury, regardless of type including head surgery, is followed by a group of symptoms that may be regarded as common to all forms of cranial trauma.

Hypertension

Diseases of the heart and blood vessels are the number one cause of death in the United States.
