Focus on Eye Health

Your eyes are an important part of your overall health. But oftentimes it’s not until we have a bothersome eye issue or condition that we start to think about the importance of our eye health. The first step in assessing your overall eye health is researching your family history to see if there are any prevalent hereditary eye diseases that you may be susceptible to. If so, a visit to a trusted eye care professional along with a comprehensive eye exam will be helpful in determining your risk for developing an eye condition or disease and proactive course of action or treatment.

From there, your eye health starts daily with nutrition and a healthy diet. It is recommended to include dark, leafy greens like spinach and kale along with foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids into your eye-healthy diet. It is also important to maintain a healthy weight, since obesity increases the risk of developing diabetes which could lead to diabetic eye disease or glaucoma.

There are other precautions you can take on a daily basis to protect your eyes:

-Wear protective eye wear during sports and activities, as well as in the workplace if your occupation requires it

-Make sure your sunglasses block out 99-100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays and keep them easily accessible when outdoors

-Avoid eye strain and fatigue by giving your eyes a break when in front of a computer or other digital devices for extended periods of time

-Refrain from touching or rubbing your eyes with dirty hands

-Quit smoking – research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing several serious eye conditions which could lead to blindness

If you find yourself with minor eye troubles such as dry eye, pink eye, or a bothersome stye, LETMEDCO carries a variety of over-the-counter Opthalmic Eye Care products at everyday low prices. Make sure to stock up on your trusted eye care remedies to keep you seeing crystal clear.

Spotlight on Athletic Tape

When a minor injury or instability takes an athlete out of the game, they usually turn to athletic tape to get them back on the field quickly. Athletic tape is used to stabilize and support injured or sprained joints, overstretched ligaments and sore muscles on nearly every body part.

One of the most common injuries an athlete will face is a sprained ankle. Most will pay little attention to their sprain and return to the court or field, risking further damage. A correct application of athletic tape will not only stabilize the sprain, but decrease the likelihood for re-injury in the future.

Since it is important to choose the right tape for your injury, LETMEDCO is a proud to carry a wide selection of athletic tapes by Mueller Sports Medicine, Cramer and Johnson & Johnson, at everyday low prices. Below are a few options that will meet your athletic tape needs. A full catalog of our tapes can be found within our Athletic Training Supplies category.

Allergy Season in Full Bloom

Most people look forward to spring time – longer days filled with sunshine, warmer weather and flowers in full bloom. But for the millions of people who suffer from seasonal allergies, spring time means dealing with the headache (and sneezing, runny noses and itchy, watery eyes) of seasonal allergies. Allergic Rhinitis happens when the immune system overreacts to particles (pollen, ragweed, mold, etc.) in the air. Our bodies then create antibodies to fight these particles off, resulting in the release of the chemical histamine. This leads to inflammation anywhere that the allergen may encounter – such as the eyes, nose, throat and airways.

The timing and severity of an allergy season varies across the country. In many areas of the United States, spring allergies can begin as early as February and last well into the summer. A mild winter could cause flowers to pollinate early. Rain in early spring can cause plants to grow rapidly, leading to an increase in mold. Rain is known to wash pollen away, but pollen counts tend to soar after a heavy rainfall. It is these factors that are taken into account to determine when and for how long an allergy season will last.

When symptoms occur, most allergy sufferers turn to an anti-histamine, such as Benadryl, Claritin, Allegra and Zyrtec to treat their symptoms. Many anti-histamines are available in 12 hour and 24 hour dose caplets which should be taken consistently to increase their effectiveness. It is also important to take anti-histamines as directed, as some may cause drowsiness. If taking an over-the-counter allergy medication doesn’t provide symptom relief, it may be necessary to see an allergist to determine if allergy shots, known as immunotherapy, may work for you.

LETMEDCO is proud to offer a wide selection of over-the-counter allergy medications at everyday low prices as well as free shipping on all Pharmaceutical-OTC orders over $34.99. Take a moment to browse our Allergy category and stock up today for relief all allergy season long.

Preventing HPV in Young Adults

3422946lAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the human papillomavirus (HPV) is “so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get the virus at some point in their lives.”  There are over 40 types of the virus that can infect the genital tract; however, an estimated 90% of cases usually do not reveal symptoms and resolve on their own within two years. Because there are usually no symptoms, anyone who is infected can pass on HPV without even knowing it, which is why it is so problematic.

If HPV tends to disappear without causing any noticeable pain, then why is it such a threat to one’s health? There are many types of HPV that can cause cancer, the most common being cervical cancer, as well as genital warts. Since HPV is asymptomatic most of the time, it is important for women to schedule routine pap tests, which can detect abnormalities that can possibly lead to cancer.

Since half of the HPV infections affect adolescents and young adults ranging from 15 to 24 years old, vaccination should be considered. Currently, Gardasil 9 helps protect girls and women between the ages of 9 and 26 against cervical, vaginal, vulvar, and anal cancers and genital warts caused by 9 types of HPV. Additionally, Gardasil 9 also protects boys and men within that same age group against anal cancer and genital warts caused by HPV. Over the course of six months three injections are given; therefore, it is recommended that children and adolescents receive it at the same time as their other routine vaccinations.

Gardasil 9 is available through LETMEDCO to licensed healthcare professionals. Talk to your doctor today to understand how Gardasil 9 can protect your child from HPV and its possible complications before the possibility of exposure to the virus.
