Medical check-ups play an important role in helping you to stay healthy. They are statistically proven in terms of predicting and detecting serious conditions before they become chronic or life limiting. During your basic medical, doctors will check your cholesterol, heart rate, blood pressure. Other tests will be made according to your state of health and what your doctor determines warrants checking.
Basic medicals check for early signs of poor health developing. The advantage of this is that you are given an opportunity to resolve any future long term ill effects. Many factors affecting your health includes risk factors i.e. lifestyle choices, medical history, family history, age, impact on how frequently you need medical check-ups.
A smart move is to visit your doctor for basic medicals even if you believe you are healthy. The purposes of these check-ups are simply to:
Basic medicals are an important health tool for you to use. It not only determines potential health risks or underlying disease it also is intended to examine your lifestyle and spot what improvements you need to make for your wellbeing. Basic medical checks are something that you need to do on a regular basis. (You can always discuss this with a healthcare professional.)
Assessment of cardiovascular risks and lifestyles: This includes the initial consultation on blood pressure and routine follow-ups, if required. (This will be organized at a reasonable cost by speaking to your medical expert.)
A 24-hour blood pressure monitoring service is available to check and monitor your blood pressure and ensure that it is maintained at normal levels throughout the day and night especially when a definitive diagnosis is required.
If you have a family history of heart disease, stroke, and high cholesterol levelsand/or concerned about your cholesterol, Cholesterol Testing and Consultation will tell you exactly where you are, as of now. (Some tests a person's total cholesterol levels which are poor indicators of what is going on.) Cholesterol Testing and Consultation breaks down cholesterol levels into the different essential components: LDL: levels of bad cholesterol and HDL: levels or good cholesterol. This provides you, as well as your doctor, an accurate, current, status.
As part of the initial screening, a full blood profile is recommended that usually includes a complete lipid profile. The test also details the condition of your liver, uric acid, blood count and your kidneys and other essential elements. Consultations with our experienced and competent doctor will cover dietary, any lifestyle changes you have made or believe you can make and options for alternative medications in cases of resistance despite lifestyle improvements.
There are still other things that basic medicals cover aside from these two basic checks.
The right Cholesterol Testing and Consultation with an experienced doctor does yield accurate results. However, the results will depend upon the scale and type of medical you have chosen and agreed with your doctor. The method and choice of testing does point towards a more comprehensive result.
