All You Need to Know About Gout, a Painful Form of Arthritis
http://ow.ly/tonx30jzJYc

Gout is a type of arthritis that occurs when uric acid crystals build up in the lower joints (typically the knee or big toe) causing inflammation and pain. Gout develops over time, and there is no easy way to remove the crystal deposits. However, you can manage the symptoms by making some adjustments to your diet, as explained here. If you're experiencing joint pain you think might be gout, talk to your doctor who can give you an accurate diagnosis and recommend treatment.

What is a Well-Woman Visit? http://ow.ly/Wtrv30jzJY8

It seems counter-intuitive to visit a healthcare provider when you're not sick, but a well-woman visit is a good use of your – and your doctor's – time. It's your annual chance to catch up with your primary care provider, who will check your vital signs and arrange any screening tests you might be due for, like a Pap smear or a mammogram. It's also your chance to talk about any healthcare concerns or goals you have. If you sit down with your healthcare provider like this annually, then you'll build a great relationship over time, and increase the likelihood of catching any developing health conditions in the early stages.

We offer well-woman visits to our patients at Healthonomics Primary Care. You can make an appointment by calling your nearest office in Orland Park or Palos Heights, Illinois, or you can request one online. Find out more about all the women's healthcare services we offer at our website.

Why Six Hours Of Sleep is as Bad as None at All http://ow.ly/6AJd30jzJY7

More and more research is showing that getting a good night's sleep is vital to maintaining good health. And that means more than seven hours of quality rest per night. A recent study showed that six hours – which many people feel is acceptable – is not enough to keep you functioning. In fact, the test subjects who slept six hours a night performed as badly as those who had four or less. Fast Company has the full story. If you're having trouble sleeping, talk to your doctor about therapies he or she recommends for insomnia.

Treatment Options for IBD Have Grown http://ow.ly/pCms30jzJY6

A new report suggests people who have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) delay seeking treatment because they're embarrassed by the symptoms, which can include persistent diarrhea. This is a particular problem among younger patients, who may waste a lot of time acting on misinformation from social media because they don't want to talk to a doctor. If you're experiencing symptoms of IBD or colitis, you'll always find a sympathetic and compassionate reception at Healthonomics Primary Care. We specialize in dealing with colitis, so make an appointment at your nearest office in either Orland Park or Palos Heights, Illinois by calling or booking online. Find out more about the treatment options available for IBD and colitis.

Asthma Diet: Does What You Eat Make a Difference?
http://ow.ly/Sqen30jzJY3

Careful management of your diet can also help you manage your asthma symptoms – although it can't get rid of them altogether. Certain foods and ingredients – such as sulfites – can trigger allergic reactions that lead to asthma symptoms and are best avoided. While you might have to cut some foods out, you can add others in. Foods loaded with antioxidants can help reduce inflammation in your lungs. Find out more about diet and asthma:

What Should I Consider Before Getting Botox Injections?
http://ow.ly/vCTT30jzJY0

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments currently available, with over seven million Americans opting for injections per year. If you're thinking about joining them, there are a couple of things you should know. First, Botox is a safe and effective therapy, but it's important to go to a qualified medical professional who is experienced and trained in injecting facial muscles and who knows what to do in case of an adverse reaction. Secondly, the trend now is for 'baby' Botox, to help achieve a more subtle, natural look as opposed to a frozen forehead. Again, it's best to consult an experienced medical professional – like Dr. Maria Lentzou at Healthonomic Primary Care – to achieve the effect you want. If you're in Orland Park, Illinois area and are considering Botox, give our office a call at 708-671-1500 or set up an appointment online. You can find out more about Botox at our website.

Why the Latest Shingles Vaccine is More Than 90% Effective
http://ow.ly/SFDe30jzJXX

Older people can be particularly vulnerable to shingles, a viral infection sometimes known as herpes zoster that affects the nerves and skin. Symptoms include a painful rash, similar to chickenpox. It's a good idea to get vaccinated if you're over 50 years old – the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends two doses, two to six months apart. Results show this vaccine is more than 90% effective at protecting people from infection, for up to four years. If you're in the Orland Park or Palos Heights, Illinois areas, why not make an appointment at your nearest Healthonomic Primary Care office for immunization? While you're visiting, we can check to see if you need to be updated on any other shots.

Weight Loss for Diabetes: How Much to Lose http://ow.ly/9z9v30jzJXV

Losing even a relatively minor amount of weight (such 10-15 pounds or 5-7% of your current body weight) can make all the difference to managing your diabetes. Excess weight interferes with your body's ability to regulate its own insulin – and when the extra pounds melt away, so does the problem. If you've been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, then why not reach out to the expert team at Healthonomic Primary Care in Orland Park and Palos Heights, Illinois? We can help you manage your diabetes symptoms with a multipronged approach, including lifestyle changes such as weight loss. To make an appointment, call your nearest office in or book via our website.

However, research suggests it may be a useful weapon in the fight against the painful inflammation in your joints caused by gout. If you're experiencing gout symptoms you might want to investigate the DASH diet as a way of alleviating and possibly even preventing flare-ups. Find out more:

What is an eyelash enhancer?
http://ow.ly/qw7430iIRLg

Unlike eyelash extensions, which can pose a risk to the health of your eyes and eyelids, an eyelash enhancer uses a form of medication that stimulates your own natural eyelash growth. Application is simple – you swipe a single drop across the base of your upper eyelashes – and new growth is usually noticeable within a couple of months although results may vary. At Healthonomic Primary Care we recommend Latisse eyelash enhancer to our patients. While you apply the treatment at home, Dr. Maria Lentzou prescribes and supervises the procedure. There are occasional side effects like dry eyes or hair growth beyond the eyelash zone. If you're interested in a Latisse consultation, then call our office in Orland Park, Illinois on 708 671 1500 or request an appointment online. You can find out more about Latisse at our website:
