Your liver is about the size of a football. Weighing around three pounds, it’s your largest internal organ. It’s located on the right side of your abdomen, just under your rib cage.

Look to Your Diet to Keep Your Gallbladder Healthy

Your diet has an impact on your gallbladder. Pegasus caregivers in Saugus and elsewhere can help you with beneficial food choices. August 24 of each year is Gallbladder Good Health Day, but eating well is a daily choice. Your liver produces bile. Bile is a liquid that helps your body digest fats. It also helps your body excrete waste products. Bile is required only after you eat, but your liver continually produces it. Your gallbladder is a storage pouch. It concentrates and holds the bile until it is needed for digestion. When you eat, the muscles of the gallbladder squeeze bile into the bile duct. From there the bile travels to the small intestine. The bigger the meal, the more bile is released.

Tips for Stocking a First Aid Kit for Seniors

Natural disasters, accidents, and health crises happen. Pegasus homecare professionals in Altadena and elsewhere know what to do in an emergency. They have compiled these tips on what to include in a first aid kit that fits your circumstances. First aid is immediate attention to a medical problem. It can be as simple as removing a splinter in a finger. Or it can be a life-saving procedure, such as administering CPR. Having a first aid kit enables you to respond quickly. A fast response reduces injuries or could save a life. A first aid kit isn’t much use if it’s not quickly accessible. It needs to be located where you can easily reach it when needed. If you drive, keep a second kit in your car. You can buy pre-assembled kits at many retail stores and pharmacies. Those will have the basics, but might not meet your needs. You can add to them or build your own from scratch.
