Nurse Sarah Percy: Okay. In regards to your diet, you should try to eliminate, or lessen, the amount of fried foods. Can you grill or BBQ meat, fish and chicken? Also, you should eat some salads and different vegetables rather than mashed potato each night. Potato has a lot of carbohydrates and when you add butter and milk the calories are very high. Tomatoes and cucumber are great in a salad do you like the sound of that?
Mr Flores: That sounds fine.
Nurse Sarah Percy: Your alcohol intake adds calories as well and the amount you are drinking is over the recommended daily intake of two standard drinks a day. That could affect your liver function over time and add to your weight. A standard drink of beer has 10 grams of alcohol for beer. A middy is 1.1 standard drinks. Do you think you could try light beer or quenching your thirst with cold water before having a beer?
Mr Flores: That sounds reasonable. I’d not thought about how thirsty I am after golf. I try cutting back to one light beer per day.
Nurse Sarah Percy: As to your snack after golf, you could try a small handful of nuts or bringing a piece of fruit from home. Maybe an apple or an orange? Would that work for you?
Mr Flores: I can certainly try. Maybe I could freeze the orange in summer, so it’s cold. Thanks for that information.
Nurse Sarah Percy: My pleasure. The Heart Foundation web site has some good and helpful suggestions and I also have a brochure for you if you would like one.
Mr Flores: Great! Can l have the brochure and the web address please?
Nurse Sarah Percy: The other thing I’m worried about is: do you wear sunscreen or a hat when you are out playing golf?
Mr Flores: I don’t wear sun screen but I probably should.
Nurse Sarah Percy: Well to protect yourself from developing skin cancer you really should and also wear a long sleeve SPF shirt and sun glasses. Have you had a skin check?
Mr Flores: I have sunglasses and I’ll get some sunscreen. The golf shop does has some hats that look good. I’ll try some on this afternoon. I have never had my skin checked though, Sarah.
Nurse Sarah Percy: We should make an appointment with the skin clinic for a skin check. Is this afternoon okay with you?
Mr Flores: Yes. I am free this afternoon.
Nurse Sarah Percy: Okay, let’s get back to that joint pain. What joints do you feel it in?
Mr Flores: in the shoulders and knees mostly. Sometimes I can’t straighten my legs and I have trouble getting into the car.
Nurse Sarah Percy: So you experience pain in shoulders and knees and you have difficulty straightening your leg and getting into the car sometimes?
Mr Flores: That’s right.
Nurse Sarah Percy: Have you been assessed by your doctor and do you take anything for the pain?
Mr Flores: Yes. The doctor said I have some age-related arthritis. I take Panadol sometimes.
Nurse Sarah Percy: So you only take the Panadol sometimes?
Mr Flores: Yes, I don’t like taking tablets if I don’t have to.
Nurse Sarah Percy: Does anything else you have tried help with the pain?
Mr Flores: I have a hot pack I heat up in the microwave that I use every day.
Nurse Sarah Percy: So it must be quite painful if you use the heat pack daily. Is it restrictive for your movement as well?
Mr Flores: I can’t run after the grand children as fast as I used to anymore.
Nurse Sarah Percy: If you address your diet and happen to lose a few kilos and get back to a healthy weight it might ease the pain for you. Also you could try some cream for joint pain. You can get some from the local pharmacy. Also, some stretching and warm-up exercises before you play golf
might help. Have you thought of yoga? I believe it is good for golfers. I have a web site that has some good information I can give to you if you like.
Mr Flores: That would be great. I’ll try those things, Sarah.
Nurse Sarah Percy: Okay, Mr Flores, sounds like you will be on the right track soon. Let’s go over what we have discussed today. In terms of your alcohol intake: currently it is over the current recommendations of two standard drinks per day. You’re going to try drinking water after golf and having one light beer only. This will also help address your BMI as it is in the overweight range. You’re also going to try not to fry your food and add in some salads and more fruit to your diet. Protecting your skin is important and we have discussed using sun screen, a hat, sunglasses and sun- protective clothing. Finally your joint pain; we have discussed the possibility of yoga, warm-up exercises and applying some joint cream from the pharmacy. That sounds like quite a lot, to do doesn’t it?
Mr Flores: I’m sure I can get started today, Sarah.
Nurse Sarah Percy: Terrific Mr Flores. I’d like to see you in two weeks to check how it’s all going. Is that ok for you?
Mr Flores: No worries. I’ll be here then!
Nurse Sarah Percy: Excellent. Here is the information I promised you. [Sarah hands him the leaflets]. I’ll see you in two weeks, okay. Thanks for your time, Mr Flores. Bye for now.
Mr Flores: Bye, Sarah, thanks for your help.
