Lehigh County Health & Medicine Spring 2020 - 5

IN THIS ISSUE

H

ello and welcome to the spring edition with Lehigh County
Health & Medicine! We hope you made it safely through the
winter. In this edition we discuss a range of topics including
allergies, diabetes, measles, preeclampsia, and more.

First up, March gives us International Adolescent Health week, so
please read on to learn more about it. March is also Save Your Vision
Month, so take the time to learn about new developments in eye care,
specifically for cataract surgery and diabetic retinopathy.
For many of us, spring is the start of allergy season. May is National
Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. We offer an article on the
history of allergy and asthma. Check out the article on ways to stop
the allergies before they start. May 22 is World Preeclampsia Day, so
we have a timely article on Preeclampsia and Pregnancy. As mentioned
in the article, heart disease in women is on the rise, including women
in the age range of 35 to 54.
"Lessons learned from a Case of the Measles" points out how dangerous
the disease can be and how much the public can be at risk. (Makes
me glad I was vaccinated, otherwise I would be calling my doctor.)
Lung cancer can be a deadly disease, but the survival rate is improving
for those who are diagnosed with it. One of our articles discusses the
importance for CT scans for smokers. If you are a smoker or know
someone who is, please read this article.
You also will find an article from the United Way of the Greater
Lehigh Valley (UWGLV) on making our residents who are 55 and
over more aware of diabetes. Did you know that 50% of Americans
over 65 are pre-diabetic?
We hope you enjoy this, and past issues, as we add to the conversation
about how medicine and wellness can help us form strong communities
in Lehigh County. If you are interested in back issues, or just want to
