Wound Care

March is National Nutrition Month. Good nutrition is an essential element for successful wound healing. During the wound healing process, the body's needs of protein and vitamins and other nutrients increases. There are foods that are particularly helpful when it comes to wound healing, like lean meats and beans for protein, and citrus fruit and tomatoes for Vitamin C. Nutrition can help heal a wound but advanced wound care may be necessary if you have a wound that has not shown any sign of healing within two weeks or healed completely within six weeks. Let our team of wound care experts help you feel better again.

Nutrition

Diet and nutrition play an important role in managing your health. If you have a specific medical condition, proper diet and nutrition can help prevent or reduce complications and improve your quality of life. The month of March focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and physical activity habits. Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn't have to be hard. At Sturdy, our registered dietitians can provide personalized nutrition counseling, healthy recipes, and wellness programs to help you achieve your goals and meet your health needs.

Colonoscopy Reminder

Colon Health

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and affects people of all backgrounds and ages. One of the best ways to prevent this type of cancer is to get screened. The American Cancer Society now recommends that individuals 45 years of age and older get screened regularly for colorectal cancer. Many people avoid screening because of the discomfort associated with testing preparation. However, physicians at Attleboro Gastorenterology Associates understand the stress of this process and can help ease your concerns. Schedule an appointment today for all your digestive health needs.
