EP 689 – Is It Time For A Check Up?

August 11, 2020

I hate going.

The pancake exam. You know, the mammogram.

While I am at it, I really don’t like going for my annual medical check-up.

 

I don’t like them, but I do know that they are necessary.

 

So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Annual Medical Check-Up Day:

Preventive care is important. Everyone should get the recommended immunizations and screening tests.

Here are conditions most people should be screened for:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • And Depression

 

Some studies have found that people who have a yearly check-up don’t tend to be healthier or live any longer than those who forgo the visits. So this is why the annual check up is being revamped and is being replaced by the Periodic Health Visit. Rather than everyone getting the same batch of tests, doctors are supposed to focus on the specific needs of individual patients – taking into account their age, gender and medical history.

 

The underlying message is clear. If you are concerned about a health issue, don’t wait, see your doctor. Self-care is always a priority.
