The selected Health Tip is summarized below.  An audio clip of the tip as presented by Dr. Leah on the Chat With Women radio show is available at the end of the tip.

Ready yourself for the coming flu and cold season

"This is a good time of year to get a physical exam and blood work.  Flu and cold season is starting soon and having a complete, thorough blood analysis is important to your health. 

What do I mean by complete?? 
     ▪ CBC, (complete blood count)
     ▪ Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
     ▪ Thyroid panel including TSH
     ▪ Free T3, Free T4
     ▪ auto antibodies, inflammatory markers such as sed rate and CRP
     ▪ If over 40, PSA in men and HGbA1c in men and women for blood sugar
     ▪ Also, it's very important to have Vitamin D checked (25-hydroxy vitamin D)

All these things can give you a good picture of your immune system to help you get through the winter."
