UTI's common ailment in adults
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) account for about eight million visits to physicians each year in the United States. These infections are much more common in adults, particularly in women. Children account for one to two percent of all UTIs, but their infections are often more serious. About 40 percent of women and 12 percent of men have a UTI at some time in their lives.

With barbecue season heating up, time to review food safety
Summer barbecue season is in full swing and it's a good time to review food safety. Food-borne illness is something that almost all of us have experienced at some point in our lives.

Food-borne illness is defined as more than two people having a similar illness with evidence of food as the source.

Incidents of Meningitis infections down dramatically
The mother of one of my patients asked me to write about meningitis. First of all, I want to state that meningitis is a very rare condition. The incidence of bacterial meningitis in the United States is about two to three per 100,000 people per year, while viruses cause about 11 cases per 100,000 per year. It used to be much more common when I did my training in the late 80's, but with the advent of preventative vaccines, the incidence has dropped dramatically.

Swimmer's Ear can be caused by more than just swimming
Summer is just around the corner which means we'll start to see patients complaining of "swimmer's ear." We tend to see more of this malady in hot, humid weather, but it can also be brought on by other conditions as well.

The medical term for swimmer's ear is otitis externa, indicating inflammation of the external ear. This is in contrast to the more common otitis media, or infection of the middle ear (the air filled cavity just behind the ear drum).

It's time to start thinking about heat and health
Despite not getting to Memorial Day yet (thanks to all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice), it's time to start thinking about the dog days of summer. Although I don't see a significant number of heat-related emergencies in my office, many patients do end up in emergency departments suffering from exposure.
