Q:

Why is it harmful to smoke during pregnancy?

A:

Tobacco is one of the most important things that exist in our society that causes harm in pregnancy. Tobacco use will decrease the ability of the placenta to nourish your baby well. So women who smoke have smaller babies, they have premature labor; they even have a higher incidence of stillbirth and miscarriage.

Q:

What is pre-diabetes?

A:

Pre-diabetes is a precursor to diabetes. It means you have risk factors that are trending toward diabetes levels and you should be taking steps to work on your health. Usually, it involves your blood sugar being slightly higher than normal, but not quite at the level where you would be diagnosed with diabetes. If your doctor has told you that you have pre-diabetes, he/she can help you understand what you can do to work on this.

Q:

Will replacing my knee cure my pain?

A:

While the goal of knee replacement is to relieve your pain and stabilize your knee, you may not be able to get complete pain relief. One of the issues with knee replacements is that people who go in with unrealistic expectations may find themselves unhappy with the results after their surgery. It is important to share with your surgeon what your expectations are from your new knee, especially with respect to the activities you would like to do. Discussing potential outcomes with your surgeon will help you both understand what your goals are and increase your chances of being satisfied with the results.
