Q:

What lifestyle practices can help manage my psoriatic arthritis?

A:

Lifestyle practices that will help with your psoriatic arthritis include efforts to manage diet, weight and exercise in your daily routine. The goal here is to improve your overall function, so working to reduce weight (if you are carrying excess weight), and keeping your muscles strong will help manage your symptoms.

Q:

How do I know if I have erectile dysfunction or low testosterone?

A:

Since both issues involve erectile function, it is difficult to know by yourself which one you might have. With low testosterone, you may have other symptoms including low sex drive, low energy and fatigue. To figure out which treatment you need, your doctor can take a history of your symptoms and do some blood tests to measure your testosterone levels.

Q:

Atrial Fibrillation and Cardiac Rehab Exercise Programs

A:

Cardiac rehab is not just for patients that have undergone any cardiac event, either a heart attack or bypass surgery. We are now referring a lot of patients to cardiac rehab to increase their exercise tolerance, keep them active, and not just sitting on the couch doing nothing because that’s poor for their overall health, their overall cardiovascular health.

So cardiac rehab exercise programs are great for patients with atrial fibrillation.
