Hello, my name is Gregory. When I was a young lad, I had to enter the health care world in an unexpected way. I developed a serious disease out of the blue that took doctors by surprise. I went through so many different testing procedures before my doctors could diagnose the rare disease. Everyone around me reeled as they tried to understand the purpose and process of the diagnostic tests. I hope to help others understand these important tests better through this website. Please come by often to learn all you need to know about medical diagnostics and working closely with health care professionals.

Walk-in tubs allow senior citizens to continue to enjoy a relaxing soak and the benefits of hydrotherapy without having to put themselves at risk for a serious slip-and-fall accident. However, the tub will only work properly if it's regularly cleaned so that the tight seal is maintained around the door in the side of the tub. Either follow these cleaning tips yourself or ask your caretaker to help you stay on track.

Once reserved only for the most complicated birth, cesarean sections (or c-sections) are now becoming much more commonplace, with nearly one in three new mothers undergoing this procedure. While a c-section can provide some advantages over vaginal birth in certain situations, it can also pose some complications you may not have expected -- after all, moving (and sometimes even briefly removing) some of your digestive and reproductive organs is often necessary in order for the obstetrician to access your uterus, and these organs don't always go back quietly.
