Q:

Why are diabetes rates rising?

A:

We are seeing more and more people diagnosed with diabetes, and it has a lot to do with today's lifestyle. Children are sitting around more rather than being active outdoors, and this leads to higher obesity rates among younger people. We are also eating less nutritious foods, which adds to the risk of diabetes. As important as it is to recognize signs of diabetes in adults, we should be looking closely at the lifestyle patterns of children to protect them from developing diabetes at their young age.

Q:

When is arthroscopic surgery used for the shoulder?

A:

Arthroscopic surgery is often used when there are soft tissue injuries to the shoulder. This would include dislocation or issues with shoulder stability. If you have questions about your shoulder injury and whether arthroscopic surgery is an option for you, you can ask your family doctor.

Q:

Refractive Laser Eye Surgery - PRK, Lasik and SMILE

A:

Laser refractive surgery is a really exciting area with constant advancement and technology. There are three types of laser eye surgeries that are available today to try to remove glasses. All three of them have one thing in common, and that is that they’re reshaping the cornea, which is the front part of the eye.
