Navigating the healthcare system in the U.S. is often confusing and disheartening, but it doesn’t have to be. In his new book, The Patient’s Playbook, Leslie D. Michelson, the CEO of Private Health Management, offers tips for how get the most out of medical care and how to make the system better work for you from the ground up.

Develop a strong bond with your primary care physician. How is your current relationship with your internist? Do you trust and respect her and feel comfortable telling her secrets that affect your health? Is he someone who, if you were experiencing a variety of symptoms, would stay engaged until the two of you could wrap a diagnosis around the problem and determine the best treatment plan? When you develop this relationship, you’re forging a bond with someone who will be invested in your wellbeing for the long haul—and who will be dogged about getting you in for the preventative exams that are right for you. If you don’t have a primary care physician, you are driving without a seatbelt.

It can be worn discreetly and comfortably under the clothing on the waist. The design of this belly bag provides the user with the freedom of movement. Belly bag can serve as the most discreet way to perform urinary drainage in both men and women. The requirement for using a belly bag is a permanent transurethral or suprapubic bladder catheter and a functioning bladder musculature. As the level of the belly bag is above the bladder it generally requires a pressure of 6 cm H2O* in order to transfer the urine from the bladder into the bag.Highlights of Rusch Belly Bag: Latex-freeSterileSingle useSkin-friendly reverse sideSafe urinary drainage day and nightLong-term wearing up to 28 days

In addition, you may notice a certain point in your life that you care for the parents or older members of your aging family, just as you took care of yourself.

Remember, it is not easy for your seniors, who were once independent, to become dependent on you or others for your basic care.

You can never tell which direction life can take. God forbid that a father suddenly suffer an accident or enter the bathroom – would you really be in a position to handle such a situation?

I think, like me, can also struggle to find emergency numbers or to call the insurance company and find age hospital bills.

With all this chaos you also have to deal with your daily work, family and children. Life can sometimes be difficult, so you have to be prepared to face it – is not it?

Any questions about how families stay healthy, fit and lean? We asked Dr. Oz for his tips on how to build a healthy family strategy. Dr. Oz says families (like Carroll’s in the photo) who make healthy lifestyle choices together remain healthy. This is your game plan for your family.

To stay healthy, you must eat, do not let yourself go hungry. “If you fill in regularly, you will be insatiably hungry, making the hunger hormone, ghrelin, worrying,” says Dr. Oz. “The problem is, it takes half an hour before the hormone returns to normal once you start to eat, but in those 30 minutes you’ll probably have a lot more calories than if you had not eaten on an empty stomach.”
