Q:

Can exercise during pregnancy induce labour prematurely?

A:

If you are prone to premature labor, it is important that you either cut back or reduce your exercise program in your third trimester. If you are in your third trimester of pregnancy and your pregnancy is progressing absolutely normally and well, it is completely fine to continue on with your exercise program.

Q:

Why is an insulin pump beneficial?

A:

An insulin pump can help people with diabetes who take insulin. By getting a regular dose of insulin into a person with diabetes, pumps can help stabilize blood sugar levels. Insulin pumps usually come with fewer needle pokes, so for someone who has to inject insulin multiple times a day, an insulin pump can be a good alternative. You can ask your doctor if you are a good candidate for an insulin pump.

Q:

What is the treatment for shingles?

A:

If you have been diagnosed with shingles, you may be prescribed a course of anti-viral medications. There are cases of shingles in which the eye may be involved, and in that case your doctor might refer you to an opthamologist. There are complications which may happen if shingles are left untreated, so it is essential that you see your doctor if you notice the symptoms so you can get the proper treatment.
