Of those cases, 84 percent were in children between one and three years of age. Good and bad news The study revealed the good news that between 2010 and 2016, this type of poisoning in young

Many people were surprised when actor Luke Perry died this month at age 52 of a massive stroke. But our family practice doctors in Delray Beach know that strokes are not just confined to older people. While it’s not as common in younger people, in 2017 the American Academy of Neurology reported that adolescents and young adults represent 15 percent of all ischemic strokes (the majority of stroke cases). Approximately 795,000 Americans a year have a stroke, and of those, about 140,000 of them die as a result. They are the fourth leading cause of death in this country, according to the Centers

Given the magnitude of the opioid epidemic plaguing the country, it’s understandable that many would prefer to turn to alternatives for treating their chronic pain, or even withdrawal from opioids. One of those alternatives, the herbal supplement kratom, has become extremely popular in recent years. Our family practice doctors in Delray Beach, however, have reservations about the safety of this popular substance. Some background Kratom, a tree native to Southeast Asia, produces leaves that can be made into a tea or pill, or chewed by users. Relatively new to the United States, it has been used for centuries in Asian countries as a way

There’s little doubt that one of the most controversial drugs available today is the low-dose aspirin tablet. Touted for years as a magic pill to prevent heart attacks, new research has highlighted the dangers of daily aspirin use in those who don’t already have cardiovascular disease (CVD). So our family practice doctors in Delray Beach would like to help you sort out the confusion surrounding this common drug. A study published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that people without heart trouble who took a daily dose of aspirin (81 milligrams) had a lower risk

And now new research is confirming what science has known for decades.
