Family Medicine Q & A

How often should I see the family medicine doctor?

Most patients should see Dr. Nally for a general wellness checkup once a year. A wellness visit is a good opportunity to get help with any chronic issues, ask questions about improving your health, and begin preventive care measures to help you avoid conditions like hypertension, diabetes, and respiratory issues.

What is hypertension?

Hypertension is high blood pressure. Healthy blood pressure is under 120/80 mmHg. If your blood pressure reading is higher, you’re dealing with some form of hypertension.

  • Pre-hypertension: 120-129 and less than 80 mmHg
  • Stage one hypertension: 130-139 or 80-89 mmHg
  • Stage two hypertension: 140 or more or 90 or more mmHg

Hypertension can lead to stroke, heart attack, and even death if it’s not treated. Dr. Nally monitors your blood pressure whenever you come into Nally Family Practice for any type of treatment.

If you have hypertension or pre-hypertension, Dr. Nally can prescribe an effective treatment plan. In many cases, dietary and lifestyle changes can reduce your blood pressure without medication.

What is pre-diabetes?

If you have pre-diabetes, you have elevated blood sugar and likely have diabetes risk factors like obesity, but you’re not actually diabetic yet. With the right approach to pre-diabetes, you can avoid diabetes.

Dr. Nally is an obesity medicine expert who is highly experienced in treating pre-diabetes and diabetes. He can help you through weight loss and other healthy changes that will minimize or eliminate your risk of diabetes.

What kind of respiratory issues can the doctor help with?

As a family medicine doctor, Dr. Nally has experience with all types of common respiratory issues. He often treats both children and adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD encompasses a variety of respiratory conditions, including bronchitis and asthma.

Dr. Nally treats asthma and other conditions in the COPD family using both lifestyle changes and medications as needed. As a family medicine physician, Dr. Nally fully understands and recognizes that treatment for specific conditions like asthma is much easier when you start from a place of good whole-body health, so he works with you to achieve that.
