In 2017, it will be easier than ever to keep track of your health. By following the standard precautions and keeping updated with the best practices, the general public can stay healthy. One of the best ways to remain “in the loop” this year is by deciding on the most vital medical screenings. The following tips can be extremely useful when it comes to determining importance of health tests.
Ask your physician what he/she suggests you have tested. There are many screenings that are not relevant to your own personal health. It is important to track not only weight, but height as well. Blood pressure is always relevant, as well as maintaining a sleep schedule. For men, prostate cancer screening and testicular lump evaluations are always necessary. For women, birth control screening, cervical cancer prevention and mammogram updates are vital. In general, dental health is overlooked and care should be provided at least twice a year. For seniors, overall wellness should be evaluated.
