Holiday Travel Tips For the Tired, Achy, Swollen Legs

Tuesday - November 22, 2016

Healthy legs during travelling:

More and more people are traveling long distances and having to remain seated for long periods of time. When movement is constrained, the blood circulation in the legs is restricted. This situation can lead to several common symptoms such as heavy legs, leg pain, swollen feet and ankles. This symptoms are associated with the term of the Economy Class Syndrome. Prolonged sitting is also a major risk factor for development of phlebitis and thrombosis (blood clot formation). In some cases, blood clots can migrate to the lungs resulting in a pulmonary embolism.

The discomfort and risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis applies to other types of long distance travel such as car, train or bus. When remaining seated without moving for over 4 hours, the risk of DVT could be four times higher. A DVT can happen to anyone during travel, regardless of age, weight, or lifestyle.

A simple and comfortable way to help relieve the symptoms of heavy legs, leg pain, swollen feet and ankles during travel is to wear graduated compression stockings. Wearing compression stockings is also advised to reduce the risk of developing a more serious condition such as phlebitis or deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.

Compression stockings have been proven to prevent symptoms including heavy, tired and achy legs, swelling of feet and ankles. Ask your family physician for information regarding the prevention of DVT and other venous problems during travel.

Travelers Tips:

  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Move your feet and ankles every 30 minutes :10 flexs and 10 circles
  • Take a short walk every two hours
  • Drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Wear compression socks or stockings as they are an efficient mean to prevent symptoms and swelling

Benefits of Compression Therapy:

Graduated compression hosiery is the most effective in preventing edema or swelling. It also alleviates leg pain and heaviness and contributes to prevent spider veins or varicose veins. It reduces the risk of acute conditions during long distance travel by increasing circulation and the function of the venous system. When you discover the benefits and comfort of compression stockings during travel, you may want to continue wearing them for years after, and your legs will thank you for their improved health.

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles. There are 18.2 million people in the United States, or 6.3% of the population, who have diabetes.While an estimated 13 million have been diagnosed, unfortunately, 5.2 million people (or nearly one-third) are unaware that they have the disease. There are three major types of diabetes:TYPE 1 DIABETES Results from the body's failure to produce insulin, the hormone that "unlocks" the cells of the body, allowing glucose to enter and fuel them. It is estimated that 5-10% of Americans who are diagnosed with diabetes have type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes Results from insulin resistance (a condition in which the body fails to properly use insulin), combined with relative insulin deficiency. Approximately 90-95% (17 million) of Americans who are diagnosed with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.

PRE-DIABETES Pre-diabetes is a condition that occurs when a person's blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. It is estimated that at least 20.1 million Americans have pre-diabetes, in addition to the 18.2 million with diabetes.

OTHER TYPES: Gestational Diabetes Gestational diabetes affects about 4% of all pregnant women - about 135,000 cases in the United States each year.

SYMPTOMS: Often diabetes goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. Recent studies indicate the early detection and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.

DID YOU KNOW? Did you know that 2 out of 3 people with diabetes die from heart disease and stroke?There are 18.2 million Americans with diabetes - and one in three does not know it!

Are you at risk for Shingles?

Monday - February 23, 2015

You are at risk for shingles if you have ever had the chickenpox virus. However, if you have had the chickenpox and if you are 50 years old or older, have had recent surgery, have a high stress level, are taking certain medications for cancer, have an immune suppressing disease, or have had an organ transplant, you are at an even greater risk and may want to consider the Zostavax Vaccine.

The virus that causes chickenpox also causes shingles. If you have ever had the chickenpox, you are at risk for the shingles because the chickenpox virus never leaves your body once you've had it, instead it remains in your nervous system and can come back as the Shingles virus. Shingles can cause a painful blistering rash, fever, itching, tingling, burning, upset stomach, and headaches, and can possibly cause long term nerve pain.

Zostavax is not a treatment for Shingles, it is a vaccine to help reduce your risk for getting Shingles. Zostavax is used for adults who are 50 years old or older and does not protect everyone. You should not get the Zostavax vaccine if you are allergic to any of its contents including gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system, take high doses of steroids, or are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Zostavax does not prevent chickenpox. Talk to your doctor today about your risk and whether Zostavax will benefit you.

For more information regarding Davies Zostavax Vaccine Clinics please call (330) 454-5151.

Ground breaking for the Lloyd Medicinal Garden at the Governors mansion

Thursday - April 08, 2010

On April 8, 2010, a ceremony was held at the Governor's Residence and Heritage Garden to help promote fundraising efforts for the creation of the Lloyd Medicinal Garden. In addition, a display area was created in the Carriage House Restroom to educate visitors on the history of pharmacy in Ohio and tie it to the medicinal garden when it was planted.

The Lloyd Medicinal Garden is named after John Uri Lloyd (1849-1936), a Cincinnati pharmacist who was an active member of OPA, a past president of APhA, and a three-time recipient of APhA's Ebert Prize for original research in pharmacy. He was a well-respected professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Pharmacy from 1883 to 1887. He also won deserved recognition from his colleagues for his work in chemistry, making him one of the most noted pharmacists and chemists of his era.

Lloyd's innovative work with plants will serve as the inspiration for the medicinal addition to the Governor's Residence and Heritage Garden, and will feature many medicinal plants that Lloyd and his pharmacist brothers utilized.

Those present included Ohio's First Lady Frances Strickland and former First Lady Hope Taft, who is spearheading the project. Representing the Ohio Pharmacists Association were President Dale Bertke, President-Elect Matthew Fettman, Past President Don Bennett, Executive Director Ernest Boyd, and Assistant Executive Director Amy Bennett. The American Pharmacists Association was represented by CEO and Executive Vice President Thomas Menighan, President-Elect Marialice Bennett, and President-Elect Candidate Jenelle Sobotka. Also attending were Executive Director of the Lloyd Library and Museum Maggie Heran; Professor Emeritus J. Richard Wuest and Suzanne Eastman Wuest from the University of Cincinnati College of Pharmacy; and Carol Mundy, Naturalist, Glenwood Gardens, Hamilton County Park District.
