Our healthy lifestyle has come to a halt. Our work leaves us with no time to involve ourselves in physical activities. This is affecting us today with chronic heart diseases, cancers, mental disturbances, diabetes, and several hormonal imbalances. All of this can be prevented by planning and executing a proper health check-up to prevent the disease from spreading. Therefore, it is important to go for yearly or monthly preventive tests to increase chances for treatment and cure. How often you need assistance depends on your age, family history, and how often you smoke.                

According to Dr. Akhilesh Shrivastava, since time immemorial, it has been widely acknowledged that “Prevention is better than Cure”. As stated by World Health Organization (WHO), a decline in the incidence and prevalence of coronary heart disease and other chronic lifestyle diseases in western countries is the result of appropriate preventive measures undertaken by these countries. Likewise, introduction of routine immunisation has been the sole reason for elimination of the diseases. Therefore, WHO emphasizes that in the practice of medicine, preventive measures must get precedence over anything. It estimates that almost 60-70% of these diseases are preventable with timely assessment and intervention. 

For instance, a heart attack may not be sudden but can happen due to gradual accumulation of cholesterol in blood vessels. A health check-up will determine your cholesterol number and allow you to make diet changes to reduce fat intake. Keep yourself informed about what your body is demanding because it will help you to make wise decisions regarding your health. 

Who requires Preventive Tests?

It has been observed that people of working age-group (35-65 years) are being increasingly afflicted by lifestyle diseases. It is recommended by international consensus and understanding that men, above 35 years of age, and women, above 40 years of the age, should undergo annual preventive health checkup. In case of a significant history of a particular disease in family, it is prudent to initiate screening tests 10 years before, when the youngest member of family developed that particular disease (e.g. diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, high cholesterol level, high blood pressure, cancer of breasts, prostate, colon, etc). General preventive measures include availability of fresh air, clean potable water, regular physical exercise, adequate rest, balanced and nutritious diet, avoidance of smoking and tobacco use, immunisation against certain diseases and of course regular medical checkup.

What to keep in mind before you get a Preventive Health check up?

  • Several tests are conducted empty stomach - 10-15 hours of fasting is required
  • Wear loose clothing
  • Avoid wearing jewellery, or any metallic objects.
  • Inform your doctor in case there is a pacemaker in the body

Allow your body to provide you informed decisions of getting a health check up done. Right kind of services and treatments can give you a proper insight of the disease.
