May is High Blood Pressure Education Month

High Blood Pressure or Hypertension affects roughly 1 in 3 adults according to National Heart Lung and Blood Institute. High Blood Pressure can have negative health effects and is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, and kidney disease.

Blood pressure is measured as systolic over diastolic pressures. Systolic refers to blood pressure as the heart beats while pumping blood. Diastolic is the blood pressure when the heart is at rest between beats.

Normal blood pressure = less than 120/80 (must be less than 120 AND less than 80)

Prehypertension = 120-139/80-89

High blood pressure = 140 or higher/90 or higher

Your blood pressure will change throughout the day. It will generally slow down when you are at rest and increase with physical activity or stress.

Sodium intake is a major contributor to High Blood Pressure. Many Americans consume way over the recommended daily allowance of salt. Blood Pressure also tends to rise as we get older. It is important to know your numbers.

Have you had your blood pressure tested lately? If not, please contact your physician. It can save your life!

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading killer of all cancers?

The simple fact is Colorectal Cancer Screening saves lives. Beginning at age 50, we all should start getting screened for colorectal cancer. The preferred method of screening is the colonoscopy which should be repeated every 10 years. Only once every 10 years! Below is a list of recommended colorectal cancer screening options:

* Colonoscopy - Every 10 years
* Flexible Sigmoidoscopy - Every 5 years
* Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) - Annually

A positive result on a sigmoidoscopy or FOBT should be followed-up with a colonoscopy. These guidelines are for people of average risk with no symptoms and no history of colorectal cancer. Individuals at higher risk or with a family history of the disease should consult their physician to determine the age to begin screening and to discuss if they should be screened more frequently.

Please talk with your health care provider about getting screened. It can save your life!

Flu season is here! Did you know that getting a flu shot every year greatly reduces your risk of the flu? Preventing the flu means that you avoid the misery and risk of complications associated with the flu.

RPPG will hold two Flu Shot Clinics for members at high risk for influenza complications. High risk members include members over 50, members with diabetes, members with asthma, and members with coronary artery disease.

If you have declined the flu shot in the past or simply never had one, I hope you reconsider this season. The two clinics will be:

If you received an invitation in the mail, please call (773) 695-4800 to schedule your appointment. Scheduled appointments will take priority, but walk-ins will also be accepted.

If you do not fall into one of the high-risk groups and did not receive an invitation, you may contact your PCP to receive a flu shot. ALL RPPG PCPs will have a supply of the flu vaccine in their offices.

You must call (773) 695-4800 to schedule your appointment to receive the flu vaccine at one of the above clinics. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PHYSICIAN OFFICE. Be prepared to provide your name, identification number, time you would like to come and your telephone number.
