Do you really need regular health check-up?

Regular health check-up is crucial for your general health, as it offers you a thorough overview of your overall health. The aim of a health check is to help find, prevent or lessen the effect of disease. Many factors, such as your age, health, family history and lifestyle choices, impact on how often you need check-ups.

What are the benefits?

1. Early detection

Regular health check-up can help find any potentially life-threatening health conditions or diseases before they become a problem. When you see your doctor regularly, they are able to detect health conditions or diseases early when your chances for treatment and cure are better.

2. Prevention

Your doctor has an opportunity to look at your lifestyle, medical and family history to find out if you are at risk of any preventable health conditions during a regular health check-up.

This reduces your risk of getting sick as your doctor will give you medical advice on how to live a healthy lifestyle. You will get updated on new medical information or technologies that are available to lower your risk of various conditions or diseases by maintaining a healthy diet, weight and level of physical activity.

3. Improved quality of life

By getting regular health check-up, you can identify areas where improvements to lifestyle habits can help keep you on the right track.  Thereafter, you are able to establish good health habits and in the process increase your chances of living a longer, happier and healthier life.

Regular check- up will also limit the risk of complications by closely monitoring existing conditions

4. Saves costs

If a potential health condition is detected early, it allows for earlier treatment and with better outcomes.

This will ultimately reduce your healthcare costs over time by avoiding frequent hospital visits or costly medical emergencies since serious conditions can be diagnosed during regular health check-ups and treated at lower costs than the amount you would have paid for the undiagnosed severe condition.

5. Reduces stress

When you are aware of your health condition or needs, it will guide you to steer clear of any stress-related problems, hormone imbalance, high blood pressure etc.

It might also make you more comfortable talking openly about your health condition either to your doctor, family or even the public.
