Nicole Pothast, Certified Nurse Midwife at Lima Memorial joined the morning show on Friday:
The healthcare professionals at Lima Memorial Alliance OB-GYN are here to serve the medical needs of all women in Northwest and West Central Ohio. Here are a few tips they would like to share to achieving a longer and healthier life:
1) Schedule routine medical checkups annually with your Primary Care Physician. Getting regular checkups is the best way to catch problems early on.2) Choose a healthy lifestyle. Habits formed in your 20’s can last a lifetime. Eating healthy and exercising regularly can stay with you as you get older.3) Strengthen your bones. It is important to store calcium in your 20’s because this is when 90% of bone mass is acheived. Calcium prevents bone loss that leads to osteoporosis.
