Gift Giving Ideas!
This time of the year, we enjoy talking about holiday gift giving, and we try to share some ideas with our listeners regarding gifts that may support health and wellness. Different categories of gifts include those related to the kitchen and cooking, which hopefully will encourage the gift receiver to get a bit more creative in the kitchen and prepare more home cooked meals. As we've spoken about before, nothing is going to beat a home cooked meal with regard to nutrition and it's supporting wellness.
Other gift categories include those related to exercise and fitness, be it the various forms of apparel that we wear to have a more comfortable workout, or some of the new wearable technology to give feedback on how you are performing.
Regardless of the cost or category of gift, all I ask is that you think about sharing gifts that will be fun, but also promote some aspect of wellness for the end user of the gift.

Your Personal Dashboard
Season 6, Ep. 3
This past week on the radio, we had Natalie Amante, physician assistant at Liver Specialist of Texas, talking about understanding your personal dashboard. We have talked about this topic extensively in the past, but it is always worth bringing up again. Considering the patients we see, especially those with acute and chronic liver disease, there is a general misunderstanding of the importance of abnormal labs and other testing results. To maintain one's health, it is necessary to fully understand the implications of these abnormal lab test results, and similarly, abnormal x-rays or scans that are done.
#Nutrition and #Liver Questions
Season 6, Ep. 2
This week onYOUR HEALTH FIRST, we had the pleasure of interviewing 2 new team members of LIVER SPECIALISTS OF TEXAS. Lauren McNamara, registered dietitian along with Natalie Amante, physician assistant, sat down and spoke with DR. JOE GALATI regarding the role of nutrition, obesity, and metabolic syndrome in the eventual development, and reversal, of non alcoholic fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease is the leading cause of chronic inflammation of the liver, the leading cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer, and the leading disease of the liver that ultimately results in the need for a liver transplant.The vast majority of the cases of fatty liver disease are a direct result of obesity, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol or triglycerides, and hypertension. Collectively these disorders are called metabolic syndrome. For more information about Lauren McNamara and Natalie Amante, visit LIVER SPECIALISTS OF TEXAS and all of our practice related information.
