What are Health Screening and how you can benefit?
Screening tests are used to identify people with certain illnesses or conditions. Screening tests are given to a population of people who may be at risk for a specific condition, but the test does not diagnose any disease. Screening tests can also help identify what a person is not infected with.
Screening tests are often done as part of a physical examination or as part of an outside medical evaluation. They can also be done as part of a routine check-up for someone who has been feeling symptoms that could be related to the possible illness. For example, if you have been feeling feverish or have been having shortness of breath, your doctor might perform a screening test to see if you have Covid-19.
Things you should consider when taking your next Health Screening
If you’re lucky, the only time you’ll ever have to visit a doctor is for a yearly appointment. But if you’re not so lucky, it could be because of an illness or health condition that’s gone untreated for too long. That’s why it’s important to know your body and how best to keep it healthy. For example, there are three tests that can be done in the privacy of your home:
Do a glucose test to determine whether or not you have diabetes
Diabetes is a serious disorder that affects many people around the world. It is estimated that over 1 in 10 adults have diabetes and don’t know it. One way to find out if you have diabetes is by doing a glucose test.
Do a cholesterol test to see if your cholesterol levels are elevated
Cholesterol is a fat-like substance that can build up in your blood vessels and form plaque. This buildup, called atherosclerosis, can block the flow of blood to your heart.
Check your blood pressure in case it has been creeping up over time
It’s important to check your blood pressure regularly, but it is especially important if your blood pressure has been creeping up over time. A higher than normal blood pressure can be a warning sign for serious health conditions such as kidney disease, heart disease, and stroke. So take a few minutes out of your day to measure your blood pressure and find out what it means for you.
