A Doctor between Visits
You can't see your doctor every day, but one local hospital group makes physicians' recommendations available 24/7. Read how one Web site section helps you (and your health) in your daily life.

With everything you have to keep track of in life, staying on top of your health can get pretty difficult. But the doctors and staff at Mercy Health Partners make it a little easy for you with their Women's Health section of their Web site.


Designed specifically for female patients, this site serves as a great resource for all things women and health. And as ladies, we have quite a few common concerns on the health side of life. From menstruation and mammograms to pregnancy and kids to weight loss and living a balanced life, Women's Health is the go-to place for information.


Besides providing information important for all women, the health center goes one step 083010SOCIAL2.jpgfurther and separates information based on age. "Most women agree that as they progress from young adulthood to middle age to their older years, health concerns will vary greatly. That's why we've created categories that correspond to the stages of your life," according to Women's Health. "These categories contain topics that are likely to be most relevant to the life you're living now."


These age categories also discuss the recommended guidelines for health screenings. Haven't had a hearing test in a while? Ever had a thyroid test? This site tells you how often you should have various screenings during the different decades of your life. You even can sign up for screening reminders to keep yourself in check.


In addition to the individual and age-related topics, the Women's Health home page offers various tools riversbend_instory.GIFuseful for women of any age. With calculators ranging from a calorie counter to your target heart rate, this section easily can help you learn more about yourself and your individual path toward a healthy lifestyle.


Another helpful tool on the home page is the recipe section. Searchable by key word or by major protein ingredients, these recipes give you ideas for dinner that won't counteract your family's healthy lifestyle.


Overall, this section gives you a wealth of information available at your fingertips and on your time. And with easily maneuverable sections and links, you can customize that information to your present situation.


To get started on your quest toward taking control of your health, head to Mercy Health Partners' Women's Health.
