Q:

How can I exercise in my third trimester?

A:

When you're in your third trimester, exercise programs can becomes a little more difficult.

You're a little bit larger, you're a little bit shorter of breath, and quite frankly, you often don't feel like exercising at all. You're not sleeping and you're going to the bathroom all the time. So the thing to remember is whatever you can do is better than not doing anything at all.

Q:

How can dieting affect muscle mass?

A:

If you go on a fad diet or a crash diet, you can lose weight very quickly. This rapid weight loss might include muscle as well as fat that you're losing. If we know that muscle in your body helps keep your metabolism higher, than losing that muscle is going to make it harder for your body to keep a high metabolism. Over time, this could lead to a slower metabolism and more challenges trying to keep a healthy weight.

Q:

How is dementia diagnosed?

A:

If your doctor is screening you for dementia, they may order some blood work and give you some tests which look for cognitive changes (changes in your mental processing of information coming in to your brain). You may also be sent for image testing of your brain, like with a CAT scan or an MRI.
