Q:

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

A:

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects the joints primarily. It can cause pain and possible loss of function in the joints, and affects women more than men. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition, meaning that you will have it for the rest of your life, much like diabetes, or lung disease. If you think your symptoms could be rheumatoid arthritis, speak with your physician to address your concerns and treat your symptoms.

Q:

What puts me at risk of having low blood sugar?

A:

If you are diabetic, there are a few things that can cause your blood sugar levels to drop. These include unusual activity or less food than normal, or if you made a mistake in taking your medications. Since low blood sugar can cause side effects which can be mild or severe, it is important to try and catch a low blood sugar before it causes symptoms.

Q:

What should I do to take care of a wound or cut?

A:

If you cut yourself or receive some kind of injury to the skin, it is important to apply pressure right away if the wound is bleeding. If you have any first aid supplies available to clean out the wound, flushing it out might help remove any dirt. If you are concerned about the severity of the wound, or are unable to stop the bleeding, you should seek immediate medical attention.
