Happy February! This month, in honor of Valentine’s Day and American Heart Month, our Integrity Urgent Care blog will include tips for keeping your heart healthy! Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Read on for simple changes that can make a big impact on your heart health!
Many of us start out the New Year by resolving to “get healthy”, but it’s often overwhelming to know where to start! We often start strong but have a difficult time creating sustainable changes. Check out these resolutions anyone can keep! Resolve to stay away from fast food breakfast. Resolve to stop drinking soda. Resolve to start walking. Research your best choice for an emergency room and urgent care center. On behalf of all of us at Integrity Urgent Care we wish you good health for 2017!
Accidental overdosing is easier than you think. Majority of the time, a very tired, sleep deprived mom or dad is trying to reduce fever or help a child feel better, and the directions on the box are not that specific. It only takes once for harmful effects to happen to your child, and it could potentially be damaging. A recent study put out by New York University found that 80% of parents have made dosing errors and most of those were when dosing was in a cup as opposed to a syringe. Signs or symptoms to look for if you suspect your child has been given too much of a medication are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, dizziness, ringing in the ears, fatigue or lethargy. More dangerous symptoms include confusion, unconsciousness, vomiting blood, severe headache, extreme sleepiness or trouble being awakened.

Halloween is an exciting time of the year for children. Costumes, candy, and cooler weather all come together to create a happy environment. However, Halloween is a difficult holiday to navigate for parents of children with type 1 diabetes. As a parent of a type 1 diabetic child I don’t restrict my child from candy, but we do moderate his sweets intake.
