Turning to your health this morning, a vegetarian lifestyle may be the best thing for your heart.
And a local ER doctor is treating all breeds of patients.

(([TAPE#=503-04 22:37]


Doctors at Virginia Baptist Hospital are now using a new method to detect gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD.
It's called Bravo and it works by placing a tiny capsule in the esophagus to measure the PH levels.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 16:56:23]
[IN Q=It's speaking by radio]

((IT'S SPEAKS BY RADIO TO A CAPSULE AT THEIR BELT THAT RECORDS THE PH, AND ITS JUST WELL TOLERATED AND THEN A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER WE LOOK AT THEIR INFORMATION.... AND WE GET A GOOD IDEA WHAT THEIR ACID CONDITION IS))
[RUNS= 15]
[OUT Q=acid condition is]


Hickman says left untreated GERD can lead to complications like asthma, throat irritation, and possibly esophageal cancer.
That's why diagnosis is important because the disease can be easily treated.
[TAPE#=503-07 1:16:50]


In other health news, after the age of 45 you should get checked annually for diabetes. Often the symptoms of the disease go unnoticed.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 26:48]
[IN Q=Because diabetes affects so many organs of the body]

((BECAUSE DIABETES AFFECTS SO MANY ORGANS OF THE BODY IT DOES DAMAGE TO YOUR KIDNEYS, TO YOUR EYES, TO YOUR NERVES, A LOT OF THE DAMAGE IS DONE BEFORE PEOPLE REALIZE THEY ARE DIABETIC))
[RUNS= 15]
[OUT Q=they are diabetic]

That's why regular testing is so important and also being mindful of the warning signs.
Some of the most common symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, extreme thirst, dry skin, and hunger
[TAPE#=502-11 1:16:57]


And it's vegetarian awareness month. One local nutritionist says there are many benefits to a meatless -- particularly for those with heart disease.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT11:43:41]
[IN Q=It will help reduce your cholestrol]

((IT WILL HELP REDUCE YOUR CHOLESTEROL, IT WILL HELP YOUR ARTERIES AND VEINS NOT BE SO CLOGGED BECAUSE YOU'LL HAVE LESS ANIMAL FAT IN YOUR SYSTEM AND THAT'S REALLY GOOD FOR YOUR HEART HEALTH. HOPEFULLY EATING MORE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES WILL GIVE YOUR MORE VITAMINS AND MORE MINERALS AND REALLY INCREASE YOUR OVERALL HEALTH ))
[RUNS= 17]
[OUT Q=increase your overall health]


But even if you can't do the vegetarian thing -- Redick says just cutting back on the meat can make a difference.


[TAPE#=503-01 1:09:30]


And finally in health review, He's an ER doctor by profession --but treating and helping animals is his true passion.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT tape 1 @ 56:57]
[IN Q=There is the idea of taking]

((THERE IS THE IDEA OF TAKING SOMETHING THAT IS TOTALLY HELPLESS AND TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON YOU AND TAKING THEM FROM THAT STATE TO STRONG, WILD, NATURAL STATE AND RELEASING THEM))
[RUNS= 15]
