Q:

What is shoulder arthritis?

A:

Arthritis can affect specific joints in the body, including the shoulders. There are a few different types of arthritis that can affect the shoulders, and they usually involve either an inflammation (swelling) or a degeneration (wearing away of tissues) in the joint. Pain and stiffness usually develop as a result of the arthritis. If you are experiencing shoulder pain, you can ask your doctor to assess you for arthritis.

Q:

Why is exercise good for my diabetes?

A:

Exercise has many benefits for people with diabetes. Both aerobic and strength training exercise can help control blood sugar levels, by increasing your sensitivity to insulin. Another benefit of a regular exercise program is that it can help with weight management, and many people with pre-diabetes or diabetes notice an increase in their weight. Ask your family doctor if you have pre-diabetes or diabetes and you are thinking of starting an exercise program.

Q:

When should I apply and reapply sunscreen?

A:

You should be applying sunscreen about 30 minutes before heading out into the sun. This will also allow time for your skin to absorb the sunscreen if you are planning to get wet. After 2-3 hours, your sunscreen should be reapplied if you are still out in the sun. The most dangerous period in the day for sun exposure is around noontime, as the sun is at its highest and brightest.
