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.

More summer safety
Readers have asked me to address more summer safety issues. It's great to see kids and adults out on their bicycles now that the weather has warmed up (especially kids who aren't sitting on the couch). This will undoubtedly result in more bike accidents. Some of the saddest experiences I had during my Family Medicine residency were to have to take care of kids who were brain injured as a result of a bike accident.

Lupus, 'the great imitator' difficult to diagnose
I had a request to write about lupus. Lupus is the common name for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. It is an autoimmune disease first described by the physician Rogerius in the 12th Century. There are many opinions regarding the origin of the name. One of the most popular is that the rash on the face of many lupus sufferers resembles a wolf's face. Lupus is Latin for wolf.

Is it Alzheimer's?
"Dad is getting awfully forgetful - could he have Alzheimer's?" That's becoming a more common question. We are more likely to encounter someone with Alzheimer's dementia as the proportion of elderly in our society increases. Some forgetfulness is normal for most of us as we age. Many of us carry the fear of developing Alzheimer's or another form of dementia as we get older.

The Season of Sneezing
It's once again time to run my annual column on allergies. Many of our readers are probably already cursing the annual return of allergy symptoms. The pollen levels in Indiana are already ramping up as spring (hopefully) arrives for good.

Allergies are a major problem for many people. When allergy sufferers are asked about their quality of life, they generally rate allergies as more bothersome than heart disease and sometimes even cancer. There are many causes of allergies, but I want to focus on the seasonal type.
