Women's health care month

Women’s Health Care Month is observed annually in May. The goal here is to highlight the importance of women's health and also equip women with the knowledge to improve their health. The celebrations for Women’s Health Care Month were started by the U.S. Department of Health. Faced with the rigorous demands of work and family, women often forego an active lifestyle and a healthy diet to keep up with these demands and sometimes neglect their own health. However, the consequences of neglecting health can have detrimental consequences. When women fail to take care of their health, hereditary illnesses may afflict them sooner and with more severity. 

With a growing focus on personal health, it is extremely important for all women and girls, especially those with underlying health conditions like hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and women 65 years and older, to take care of their health. During Women’s Health Care Month get in touch with your doctors for a full-body medical check-up and make sure to treat all current ailments immediately before they become an even bigger problem. Timely medical intervention will not only save your health from deteriorating further but also detect illnesses that you may have overlooked. This is also the month to pledge to take better care of yourself and live the healthy, active life that you have always dreamt of!


1. Add physical activity to your day

Pledge to take care of yourself during Women’s Health Care Month. Go for a walk, something as simple as a 15 minute walk once a day, can make a huge difference. A healthy weight and active lifestyle are important for good health.

2. Get your vaccines

During Women’s Health Care Month, check if you are up-to-date with all your vaccines and booster shots. If not, get an appointment to update these as soon as possible. Vaccines are mandatory to prevent many severe illnesses.

3.Eat good food

On Women’s Health Care Month, pledge to cut out alcohol, tobacco, and unhealthy foods from your diet. Stick to clean eating and develop a diet that addresses all your health needs. This is crucial for a healthy life.

Telehealth, lets look at some of the advantages

Since our office now only operates predominately via telehealth, many people have had some questions, we hope this article will help many understand the model under which we practice delivers concise and efficient care to our patients.

Most doctors and other health care providers see their patients in person at a facility such as a medical office, clinic, or hospital. But thanks current developments in technology, more specifically computers and smartphones medical professionals can now diagnose, treat, and oversee their patients' care virtually.

Telehealth is defined as the delivery of health care services at a distance through the use of technology. It includes everything from conducting medical visits over the computer, to monitoring patients' vital signs remotely with the help of medical supplies such CGMs and blood pressure monitor kits. Our model also includes training and education, and this helps every individual take control of their health and well being. 

How do we know it works?

Telehealth has helped us reach people with mobility limitations, such as the elderly and those with disabilities. And for those with limited time, the convenience of being able to take a doctor's appoint during lunch break, before work or after work without having to drive all the way to the doctor's office really make a big difference.

Using the following questions, we surveyed 100 patients and these are some of their responses:

1. Do you like receiving your healthcare via via telehealth? 100% said yes

Most of them said it was convenient and easy to prepare for the appointment because its online

Some said it prevented a lot of stress because they don't have to worry about transportation

Most of them really liked not having to wait in a waiting room

And everyone enjoys the privacy, it is more comfortable and they feel like they can address a lot of their concerns because they are in the comfort of their home

2. When asked if they still receive the same quality of care? 100% said yes

3. Where they satisfied with the time spent in the consultation? 100% said yes

4. Did they have difficulty using the application? 98% said it was easy

5. Did they have difficulty getting an appointment? 100% said they had no problem getting an appointment

6. Did they receive the support they needed managing their blood glucose levels? 100% said yes
