Gut Check:

WHEN TO SEE A GASTROENTEROLOGIST Each year, more than 100 million people in the U.S. suffer from digestive disorders, from nuisances such as occasional indigestion to chronic, even crippling, conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Fortunately, there are a variety of options to diagnose and treat these conditions. While a new diagnosis and important decisions about treatment may seem overwhelming, your physician can help guide you toward the best way to effectively treat your condition.

“Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital’s team of expert gastroenterologists helps thousands of patients each year manage their digestive disorders and improve their quality of life,” said Austin F. Hwang, MD, gastroenterologist at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital. “We strive to help patients overcome their illnesses and regain control over their lives.” To better manage or treat digestive disorders, it is important to understand the signs, symptoms and available treatments.

COLON POLYPS Colon polyps are small collections of cells that form on the lining of the colon or rectum. While most colon polyps are harmless, over time, they can grow and develop into colon cancer. Colon polyps often do not cause noticeable symptoms, so polyps may only be identified during an examination. To prevent colon cancer, schedule regular screenings to better detect colon polyps in the early stages of development when they can be removed safely. While anyone can develop colon polyps, certain factors may increase your chances of developing them. Risk factors for developing colon polyps include: • age 50 years or older; • inflammatory intestinal conditions, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease; • excessive tobacco or alcohol use; • obesity or diabetes.

Race and family history also play significant roles in developing colon polyps. African Americans and people with a family history of colon cancer are at a higher risk of developing colon polyps or colon cancer. 6

DELAWARE COUNTY REGIONAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE – OFFICIAL MAGAZINE

Colon polyps cannot be prevented, but you can greatly reduce your risk of developing colon cancer by receiving regular screenings, such as a colonoscopy.

While unpopular, a colonoscopy is an important part of regular health checks. For 24 hours leading up to the procedure, patients must maintain a clear liquid diet to help clear out their colon. During the procedure, the GI specialist will use a scope to locate and remove any colon polyps. Patients are typically sedated and asleep throughout the procedure. If detected early enough, colonoscopies successfully remove colon polyps and reduce risk of colon cancer in most cases. The American Cancer Society recommends regular screenings starting at age 45.

Patients can experience cramping following their colonoscopy, due to excess air in the abdomen. Although this discomfort is common, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital’s GI team uses carbon dioxide instead of air during colonoscopies, reducing post-screening discomfort.

In most cases, patients can eat normal foods and return to their regular activities within 30 minutes of the procedure.


ACID REFLUX Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux or heartburn, is one of the most common digestive disorders in the U.S., affecting nearly 40 percent of Americans. GERD occurs when muscles in the esophagus weaken and allow acid and digestive enzymes to flow up from the stomach, causing “reflux.”

cause inflammation, scarring and permanent damage to the esophagus. Repeated damage from stomach acid is also associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer, so it’s important to properly diagnose and manage your GERD.”

Symptoms of acid reflux include: • burning sensation from chest to throat; • abdominal pain; • nausea; • cough (often confused for a cold, asthma or allergies); • sour taste in the back of your mouth; • difficulty swallowing.

To diagnose GERD, your physician can perform an upper endoscopy screening, which uses a thin scope, light and camera to view your throat, stomach and other parts of your upper digestive tract. Your physician may also measure the pH, or acidity, of your GI tract by using an esophageal pH monitoring capsule. A GI specialist implants a capsule and sensor in the esophagus, which monitors the pH of the digestive system over two to three days. The capsule then falls off the esophageal lining and passes through your digestive system.

“Most people experience GERD at some point, but, when it occurs multiple times per week, it can cause discomfort and create long-term problems,” said Dr. Hwang. “Over time, GERD can

GERD can be treated with over-the-counter medication; however, if symptoms continue or worsen, talk to your physician to better evaluate and treat your condition.

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME Like GERD, IBS is one of the most common digestive disorders, affecting one in ten adults in the U.S., yet only half as many have been diagnosed or received treatment. To treat IBS, it is important to know how to identify it.

IBS is typically diagnosed by eliminating other possible causes of pain or discomfort. Your physician may recommend a full blood panel, liver screening, thyroid check or upper endoscopy to look for signs of inflammation.

In more serious cases, IBS can suggest other conditions, such as colon cancer. Weight loss and blood in the stool can be indicators of a condition more ominous than IBS. If your symptoms of IBS persist or worsen, talk to your doctor to better evaluate your condition.

While treatment for these conditions vary from patient to patient, treatments for IBS generally include fiber supplements, over-thecounter probiotics and moderate stress-relief activities, such as counseling, mindfulness training and relaxation exercises.

IBS is a chronic disorder of the large intestine that can cause one or more of the following symptoms: cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation or abdominal pain. For most people with minor to moderate IBS, your symptoms may fluctuate from more severe to less severe.

One of the more advanced methods for conducting an upper endoscopy is with an Olympus 190 scope. When compared to older models, this state-of-the-art device provides brighter, higherquality images while maintaining an ultra-slim design. These features allow for quicker, more accurate diagnoses.

Government Affairs:

LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

In our ongoing effort to keep both our legislative delegation and members informed, the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce would like to share with you some of our legislative priorities. MISSION STATEMENT The advocacy mission of the Delaware County Chamber is to promote the growth and development of the regional business community through: the advocacy of positive and permanent business friendly government laws and regulations; effective communication with our elected officials; and, development of strategic partnerships to accomplish these objectives.

IMPROVED TAX STRUCTURE & PRO JOB CREATION POLICIES Pennsylvania’s tax structure contains some of the highest rates and most restrictive provisions in the country and our corporate tax laws are uncompetitive when compared to the rest of the nation. Across-the-board reforms and reductions in business taxes are necessary to stimulate economic development and create jobs. Due to this, the Chamber would be opposed to any tax increases or expansions, in particular the Sales Tax and Personal Income Tax or other tax policy revisions that would erode appropriate localized control of taxes. The Chamber supports Property Tax Reform, as long as any elimination of property taxes does not shift the burden to small businesses.

IMPROVING COSTS AND ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE Making insurance more affordable and accessible to small businesses will encourage entrepreneurs to expand their workforce and benefits packages. The Chamber is concerned about the viability of our Healthcare companies, the county’s largest employers, through the implementation process of federal health-care reform and any potential changes to Healthy PA. In addressing these challenges, policy makers must not unfairly target health care providers by cutting funding or drastically changing the Affordable Care Act without appropriate input from our health 8

care providers and without an orderly, planned implementation. Changes such as this will have a negative impact on our citizens, hospitals, businesses and the overall economy of the region. There are ways that our national health care system could continue to be improved, particularly as it pertains to the affordability of coverage and the growth in health care spending. Congress needs to ensure that promising models like these are continued, because patients receive better care, providers are held accountable, and inefficiencies and waste are driven out of the system.

SUPPORTING OF CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE AND PRO ENERGY POLICIES Energy costs can be a significant portion of any business operation and the Chamber supports policies that will encourage access to sustainable energy, the continued redevelopment of our refineries and creating new pipelines, and the development of new generating plants including nuclear energy. We emphasize reducing regulatory and other governmental hurdles to the utilization of all energy sources and to the implementation of energy infrastructure while ensuring appropriate environmental protection. The Chamber also supports increased federal investment in transportation and feels that our area and the Country needs a transportation system that moves people and delivers goods in a safe and timely fashion. The nation’s transportation system continues to decline and deteriorate, jeopardizing Americans’ safety and quality of life, the economy, and the environment. The cost of continued inaction is too high. Improving the nation’s transportation infrastructure is a national problem and must be a national priority. The Chamber also recognizes that water and wastewater systems are important to the infrastructure and community well-being. Pennsylvania funding referendums, potentially supple-

DELAWARE COUNTY REGIONAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE – OFFICIAL MAGAZINE

mented by federal initiatives, should be monitored to ensure water and waste water infrastructure supports commercial/ industrial development initiatives.

TRAINING, EDUCATION & WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT The Chamber supports policies and funding that encouraging business to locate and grow in Pennsylvania. Southeast Pennsylvania has underserved human capital and infrastructure needed for job creation and economic growth. Investments in early childhood education are the most effective tools a community can utilize to promote economic development and workforce development. Constant training is a critical human capital process concerned with identifying future needs, developing a productive workforce, examining the skills of employees at all levels, and determining both strengths and skill gaps. Due to this, the Chamber supports programs that emphasize technical skills, business skills, trades, vocational schooling, choice and Educational Improvement Tax Credits, that provide ample choices for parents and students. Please take the opportunity to review, comment and share with your local legislator. As you know a thriving economy impacts the residents, municipalities, and institutions of Delaware County, as well as all of Pennsylvania. Support of pro-business legislation will go a long way towards making Delaware County a better place to live, work, and raise a family. We look forward to continued interaction with you on important business issues. Please do not hesitate to contact the Chamber staff at 610-565-3677 or Alex Rahn, our Government Affairs Consultant at 717-378-3388 (arahn@wannerassoc.com).


Is a HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT Right for You? For some, medical expenses can be overwhelming, especially when they are unexpected. A Health Savings Account or HSA is an account for individuals with high-deductible health plans to save for medical expenses that are not covered by their plans. This type of savings account allows an individual to put aside money to pay for qualifying medical expenses. The funds contributed to this account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit. Most states also recognize HSA funds as tax-free, with few exceptions. (Be sure to check with your accountant to check your state’s specific rules.) The individual can use the untaxed savings to pay for

medical expenses, such as deductibles and copayments, helping to lower their overall healthcare costs.

Tax Year HSA Contribution Limit Individual Family 2018 $3,450 $6,900 2019 $3,500 $7,000 Qualifying plans will have a minimum annual deductible of at least $1,350 for an individual or $2,700 for a family. An HSA can only be used if you have a High Deductible Health Plan or HDHP, have no other health coverage such as Medicare, military health benefits or medical FSAs, and are not claimed as a dependent on

another person’s tax return.

Unlike flexible spending accounts, funds contributed to an HSA roll over from year to year and interest or other earnings on the assets in the account are tax free. With an HSA, an individual or family will own the account and its contributions. So, if they decide to change health plans or employers, the account will remain in their control. HSAs are sometimes offered through health insurance companies, banks and financial institutions.

For more information on Health Savings Accounts and to see if they are right for you, contact our office at 610-544-5900.

She describes her time in YLA as a “wonderful experience that allowed [her] not only to interact with [her] peers, but also with many professionals working throughout Delaware County. Talking with the business leaders made [her] realize there are many paths you can take to achieve your goals and that your goals can change as you are presented with different opportunities.” Erin says that YLA also allowed her to look at leadership styles and to work on leadership skills as the group worked together on their final projects. At Merion Mercy Academy, she is a member of the Spanish, Math and Science Honor Societies, which provides the opportunity to tutor fellow classmates in these subjects. She is on the MMA Cross County and Track Teams, as well as a member of the Ministry Team.

Molly Smith

Molly Smith lives in Swarthmore and is a junior at Ridley High School. Over the last decade Molly has seen her parents’ involvement in many community organizations that focus on youth and youth development.

Molly is a Lifeguard for Ridley Township Swim Club and a Guest Representative for Morey’s Pier in Wildwood, NJ. She has also been an Altar Server for Notre Dame de Lourdes in Swarthmore and was recently nominated for Peer Mentoring at Ridley High School. Molly has been involved with dance since she was three years old and is a diver for the Ridley High School, where she achieved one of her greatest accomplishment by earning a qualifying score for district championships. Molly completed the 2018 Delaware County Youth Leadership Academy. Her team’s Ignite presentation highlighted what it means to be an effective and approachable leader. The three-day participation in YLA clearly made a significant impact on Molly. She has now taken a leadership approach to selecting her future college by way of assessing the “big picture.” Molly’s goal is to become a Pharmacist and is assessing what she will need to do over the next two years to achieve an acceptance into a six-year pharmacy program. This includes attaining strong academic reports in all areas, especially math and sciences, researching the history of the colleges she is interested in and how this role will give back to her community.

Ned Morgan

Billy Simpson

William Simpson, aka Billy, will be entering his Junior year at Cardinal O’Hara High School and is a Youth Leadership Academy graduate from Class of 2018. His experience at the Youth Leadership Academy helped him better develop both his leadership skills, as well as his public speaking. He worked with a great team of other students from various schools to compose an “Ignite Presentation” at the end of his time the Delaware County YLA. This not only strengthened his public speaking background, but also bolstered his teamworking capability. After his time spent in the Youth Leadership Academy, Billy hopes to continue to further his leadership skills, as well as help his community through Cardinal O’Hara’s Community Service Corps. Although his college choice is undecided at this time, Billy is grateful for the confidence that his experience in the YLA has given him, experience that will undoubtedly provide guidance as he continues his college search! “My time at the Youth Leadership Academy was a great experience. I had a great time meeting other students from different schools and different backgrounds. I enjoyed working with and getting to know them as we worked on our Ignite Presentation.” Outside of school, Billy is an employee at Jems Deli in Springfield. Some of his favorite hobbies are fishing and spending time with his family at the Jersey Shore. He also stays connected to his parish of Holy Cross though his participation in CYO basketball and volleyball.
