8 Reasons not to miss your routine blood test and health checkups

8 Reasons not to miss your routine blood test and health checkups

It’s hard to do everything we should do, from getting enough sleep, eating right, exercising, and even regular health checkups. Tomorrow always seems like another day to get those things done while we deal with today.

But putting off routine physicals can cause bigger problems. That’s why checkups are so important. Early detection and intervention can often prevent health issues from becoming serious. Blood tests monitor risk factors for disease or detect any irregularities that could become more severe health issues. While age, lifestyle, and genetics play a role, regular blood tests ordered by your doctor can help to uncover potential health problems before they become chronic or dangerous. Giving you and your doctor the time you need to make necessary changes or to treat conditions if they develop over the years.

Reasons for routine blood tests and health checkups:

Reduce your chances of getting sick
Detect potentially life-threatening health conditions or diseases early
Increase chances for treatments and cures
Limits the risk of complications by closely monitoring existing conditions
Increases lifespan and improves general health
Reduces healthcare costs over time by avoiding expensive treatments
Forms a good relationship with your doctor so treatment can be more efficient and personal.
Gives you a chance to be updated on any new medical information or technologies that are available

Health checkup checklist: What to look for at each age:

Below are some of the routine healthcare evaluations you should have at each stage of life.

In your 20s and 30s, make sure your doctor checks the following :

Blood pressure
Glucose levels
Cholesterol
Weight
Certain cancer checks
Testes (men)
Breast (women)
Sexually Transmitted Disease STD screenings- if you are sexually active
Pap smear for women (once every two years)
Make sure you also visit the dentist regularly for cleaning and checkups.

In your 40s, make sure you check the above and also add:

Risk Assessment Test for Type 2 Diabetes
Risk Assessment test for Cardiovascular disease
Mammogram for women

Eye exams

In your 50s and 60s, consider adding the following with your doctor :

Taking care of your health at all ages is important. Regular exercise, good eating habits, and plenty of sleep help to keep you healthy.
