At The Bolick Clinic, we love families.
We also treat infants to teens for a broad range of problems. Feel free to bring us questions about earaches, colic, frequent colds, hyperactivity, poor posture or other problems for your child. If your child ever gets injured, then make sure to contact medical assistance from www.northraleighpediatrics.com/services/.
When you go to the doctor for the first time, you are asked to give a history of your medical problems. You should also be asked about the history of medical problems in your close family members—as well as those that may have been present in distant relatives going back at least two generations, to your grandparents or even great-grandparents. Many common, treatable diseases can be the result of a combination of environmental factors and genetic factors received from our ancestors. With the diversity of genes, we are the product of no less than eight generations of relatives.
The U.S. Office of Public Health Genomics officially and formally acknowledged the importance of family history in 2002, when it launched the Family History Public Health initiative. This effort strives to inform the general population about the importance of knowing and recording diseases from progenitors. It also researches links between family history and such common health risks as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
With advances in medicine, people are more able to have a more exact understanding of the conditions our relatives have or had. This understanding can lead people to find the best options for Cancer Radiation Treatment that will help them fight the disease. By carefully assessing and archiving that information, we are better able to understand our relative susceptibility to these conditions.
