D_Dowden_1.4 Written Assignment – Case Study - Jessie...

This preview shows page 1 out of 1 page.

Jessie Leher, age 69, is concerned about her aging status and loss of short-term memory at times. Her sister told her to take Ginkgo Biloba and Co-Q10, over-the-counter herbal products. Jessie has high blood pressure and some circulatory problems. She takes several prescription medications for these disorders and for a couple of other problems, such as arthritis. Should she be cautioned about taking the herbal remedies? How much should she actually know about her medications? Should health care providers educate patients better about their medications? Are consumers more interested in knowing about their health care treatments in today’s world than in the past, and if so, why? I think she should consult with a doctor first because she could have certain reactions to them or for her type of condition those products might not work and could make it worse. So yes I think she should take caution when taking herbal remedies. She should try to know as much as possible about her medication

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
