Dr. Oz has good info

Whenever I get the time, I click on the TV to watch Dr. Oz show, which is about 3 p.m. PST for some good info on keeping healthy. As you probably know from looking through this blog, staying healthy is very important when you have a chronic illness. Supplements are a must. In my case I take extra Vitamin C, B-complex, E, and others on recommendation from my immunologist and other doctors.

Omega-3 has been very important for my vascular health (Wegener’s Granulomatosis is a vasculitis disease) and inflammatory response. I take it every day.

What was surprising to me was what I heard on the Dr. Oz show this week (I think it was this week -please forgive me, but my meds do make it hard for me when it comes to time in the past.)

The surprising news was that Vitamin C is lacking in our diets and that it is very good for women to take 1000 mg of this vitamin a day. It helps to prevent urinary tract infections. I don’t know about you, but I have done all the recommended things from my doctors since I was in my 20s and it didn’t help much. I even take a cranberry pill a day to keep my urinary tract healthy. Plus infections are not good when you have a chronic illness. So how exciting. I take Vitamin C almost daily to keep healthy. And now there is proof that many women need it too.

Good job Dr. Oz.
