Why you should go for check up regularly

Importance of regular check-up

It is important that everyone visits the hospital at least twice a year for a check-up. Some people might need to visit their doctors more times in a year for a check-up,
Pregnant women will require even more check-ups, at least once every month. People suffering from some illnesses like high blood pressure will need to visit the clinic at least four times a year.

Irregular check up's can result in sudden intensified health conditions and even death. Even if you are not feeling ill, it is very important you go for a check-up.

Most heart attack victims were never warned, it happened suddenly. An illness in the body must have triggered the attack. Do not wait until there is a crisis before you contact your doctor for a check-up. Early detection of illnesses or diseases in the body can be treated or subsided, which can save a life. HIV if not detected and treated on time can lead to AIDS which is deadly.

High cholesterol in the body can lead to stroke, a regular check-up will avert stroke because the patient will be given medications on time.

High blood pressure, kidney and liver issues, blood infection, etc can be easily detected if there is regular check-up. 

Unhealthy lifestyles and overweight can trigger a lot of illnesses and diseases, so as you visit your doctor for a checkup, also cultivate healthy practices like eating good diets, exercising regularly and getting adequate rest. 

If you are worried about something specific such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease or stroke in your close family, you can also ask your doctor. 

A typical medical consultation can include:

  • Height / weight check
  • Blood pressure check
  • Cholesterol level check
  • Blood sugar test
  • Throat check
  • Ear check
  • Eye check
  • Electrocardiogram (for those at a higher risk of heart disease)
  • Chest x-ray (for heavy smokers)
