Do you have a food allergy?28-05-2021
If you have a food allergy and are at risk of anaphylaxis, you can reduce your risk of having a reaction when eating out by taking some precautions:
Always carry your ASCIA Action Plan and your EpiPen. (Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia recommends: If you do not have your EpiPen with you, do not eat.)
Read the menu before you go to see if there are food choices that suit you. If the restaurant serves a lot of dishes that contain the food you are allergic to, it may be better to choose another venue and cuisine.
Call ahead to ask if the restaurant can cater for your needs.
Always tell staff about your allergy at the restaurant and ask questions.
Avoid sharing food, cutlery and other tableware.
How can you recognise when stress is a problem?
Stress isn’t always a bad thing – sometimes it helps you get through a tough situation by making you feel more alert and capable. But it can also be overwhelming and affect your quality of life.
How can you recognise when stress is a problem? Some questions you can ask yourself include:
– Can you switch off when you want to rest? Or can you not stop thinking?
– Are you coping? Or do little things get you down?
– Do you feel mostly calm? Or do you feel irritable?
It’s Men’s Health Week15-06-2021
It’s easy to tell when you need something like a haircut or a shave. But you don’t always get obvious cues for other things your body needs, like a cholesterol, diabetes or bone density check. That’s why it’s so important for men to have regular health checks with their GP.
Regular check-ups help you stay healthy. They are a great opportunity to talk about any concerns, and can pick up early warning signs of disease or illness.
So, this is your friendly Men’s Health Week reminder: book in for a health check with your GP.
