Otitis Media

The build up of fluid can cause pain and temporary hearing loss, and it may lead to a middle ear infection. Otitis media is more common in children because of the length and position of their eustachian tubes. Management by a doctor is required to treat this condition.

Health Tip of the Day

Family Fitness

Limit how much time your children spend watching TV and playing video games. Don't eat snacks while watching TV. Schedule family fitness activities such as biking, hiking or tennis. Set exercise goals as a family to help everyone stick to the fitness plan. When the weather is bad, try indoor exercise ideas such as jumping jacks or Simon Says.

Healthy Living

Cholesterol
There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
