Motives for One Having Regular Health Checkup.
Several people do not regard having a health checkup especially if they are feeling okay. Even though it sounds the right thing to do, not having a health checkup, it is not the right thing to do. This should be supported by the fact that there are many diseases that have no symptoms or show symptoms during the late stage when only little can be done to save the person. The individual should consider going for routine health checkup so that any disease that may not show symptoms can be detected soon and the treatment is done.
Going for a regular health checkup should not be limited to only people who are feeling well but also to the people who are showing symptoms of a certain disease so that the right illness can be detected. Due to the fact that many diseases have similar symptoms, the doctor may end up giving the wrong prescription to a patient unless the test is carried out to determine the specific illness the individual is suffering from. Having a routine health checkup might also help a physician to detect another disease in the body together with the illness that the individual is showing symptoms of.
In this page, there is discussion of various diseases that are better detected early enough. One of such disease is the high blood pressure that shows no early signs that can be detected. This is a disease that can be dangerous to the individual if it is not treated. It is even more harmful due to the fact that it will show no sign and the individual will always feel comfortable. It can be detected through routine health checkup or using a self-service blood pressure machine if it is available. This condition can cause heart and circulatory problems but the good news is that it can be treated if diagnosed early enough. This can make a very big difference in an individual’s health.
secondly, we have the type two diabetes which is increasingly becoming common. The older adults are more likely to suffer from this since they have high weight and have other old age complications. The symptoms are usually very slow hence cannot be detected fast. In fact, many people take the symptoms as the process of aging. This condition has the following symptoms of, feeling thirsty more often, visiting the bathroom more frequently, feeling tired sometimes, lethargic or a bit lightheaded. These symptoms are experienced in the early stages and one can start the medication soon enough when the illness is not at its worst.
Lastly, there is heart failure which has a sign of excruciating pain of a heart attack. One should have routine health checkup in order to have the doctor to check how your heart is functioning hence getting to detect any sign of a problem early enough.
