Tips to stay healthy this holiday season – 5
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters, I’m Joe Balintfy. While eating favorite foods and desserts, and exchanging gifts are central to many family gatherings, those get-togethers can also be an opportunity for families to give the gift of health. Dr. Griffin Rodgers at the NIH says knowing your family health history can help you and your health care provider make the right decisions for your health.
Rodgers: Share your family health history. Ask questions. Talk about common health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure and whether anyone in the family has these conditions.
