Q:

How does blood sugar affect erectile function?

A:

Erectile dysfunction occurs when there is damage to the blood vessels supplying the penis, affecting the ability to obtain and maintain an erection. The small vessels in the body are extremely sensitive to blood sugars, which is why men with diabetes have a higher likelihood of experiencing erectile dysfunction.

Q:

How can physiotherapy help my scoliosis?

A:

Depending on the symptoms you are experiencing with your scoliosis, a Physiotherapist may be very helpful in your treatment plan. A physiotherapist who is experienced in working with scoliosis can help you work on your posture and strength through appropriate exercises, and can also assist with pain relief. Aside from Physiotherapists, you may also benefit from working with an Occupational Therapist or Chiropractor. Speak with your rheumatologist to see if you should consider these therapists.

Q:

What preventative tests should I have done to stay healthy?

A:

There are several screening tests designed to detect health issues early and help prevent certain diseases. Some of these are pap smears, colon screening, mammograms, diabetes screening, and blood pressure checks. Your individual need for any of these (or other) preventative tests will depend on your current medical condition, any health risks and your age and gender. You can ask your doctor which tests are appropriate for you.
