Q:

What is a CABG?

A:

CABG stands for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft. It is a surgery that is used to improve blood flow to the heart in people with heart disease, and involves taking a healthy artery from somewhere else in the body (often the leg or arm) and using that to reroute the blood flow around the blocked artery. If you have heart disease, your physician will review the most appropriate treatment options for you given your medical condition.

Q:

How does smoking relate to rheumatoid arthritis?

A:

One of the most important practices you can do to help prevent rheumatoid arthritis is to avoid smoking. If you are currently smoking, you should look at ways to support you quitting, as smoking can lead to a higher chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis. If you have rheumatoid arthritis, smoking can make your symptoms worse so it is best to avoid tobacco altogether.

Q:

Am I getting enough calcium?

A:

The target for daily calcium in adults is 1,200 milligrams. If you do not include dairy in your regular diet, you may not be getting enough calcium from your food, as non-dairy diets on average supply about 300-700 milligrams of calcium each day. You can ask your physician or a registered dietitian to help you determine your daily calcium intake and whether supplementation is needed.
