Vitamin D Supplementation in the winter
Vitamin D is I think wrongly named as a vitamin. It is, in fact, a hormone and the vitamin D receptors are in every organ of the body. We tend to think of it as just affecting bones, but it is vital for many processes in the body and recently, of course, the immune system and prevention of respiratory tract infections.

Safety of having the Covid booster vaccination and the flu jab at the same time
If you fall into the over 50's age bracket, or are clinically extremely vulnerable, you will be invited to book your Covid Booster Vaccinations and your annual flu jab at the same time. In this week's RNIB Connect Radio catch up with Toby Davey, we discussed just this topic! We talked about some of the findings from a trial earlier this year, where volunteers have been given the Covid and Flu vaccinations at the same time, but in separate arms.

FLU VACCINATION INFORMATION 2020
This year GGHB is running the flu vaccination service. If you are over 65, then please wait for your letter from the NHS. That will give you the date, time and venue . (Younger patients e.g. 65 year olds are being vaccinated first) It’s also important to point out that the over 65 vaccine is different from the one given to the under 65’s and also different from the one that maybe available on a private basis. The under 65’s at risk e.g. asthmatics those with diabetes etc will either be done at their GP practice or again at a hub. If you are under 65 and a carer please contact the pharmacy on 0141 633 3868 or admin@newlifepharmacy.co.uk where you can book in for a vaccine. Unfortunately our private service is at capacity just now and we have a waiting list

I have a rash on my arms and body that comes and goes - could that be some sort of allergy to foods?
Yes some foods can cause a rash but it would be important to do a full history with you first. If the rash does not appear right away, then it is probably an intolerance. On the other hand if you have an allergy to house dust mite for example then I would check if your symptoms are worse in the...

I seem to be thirsty all the time. Could that be diabetes?
A: Certainly, feeling thirsty is one of the symptoms of diabetes. The other two are urinating more frequently and feeling tired- more than usual! I’m assuming you are middle aged or over and therefore asking about type 2 diabetes. That’s the type that can develop when you are older....

Is there a link between MS and vitamin D deficiency?
It seems to be particularly a Scottish problem concerning multiple sclerosis(MS). In the south of England there were 140 reported cases per 100,000 in 2010 whereas in Orkney there were 402.
