Regular Health Checkups You Should Have
Good health plays an important role in helping you lead a full, rich life. So how do you maintain good health? Some factors, such as inherited tendencies for some diseases are beyond your control, but fortunately there are steps that you can take that will help you stay healthy throughout your life. For example, eating a nutritious diet, being physically active, and keeping your vaccinations up to date can set the stage for good health, but there is more you can do, including seeing your healthcare provider for regular screening tests.
As we age, our risks for developing certain health conditions change, and we can become more likely to develop some health problems. Regular check-ups combined with screening tests can identify warning signs of a problem earlier, making the health condition easier to treat and helping you on your journey to good health. The specific screening tests a person should have depend on a number of factors including age and sex. Your healthcare team, including pharmacists, doctors, optometrists and others can advise you on what tests you should have, at what age you should have them, and how often you should repeat them, but the chart below provides a general guide that will help you understand what might be right for you.
