IMPORTANCE OF ANNUAL HEALTH CHECKUPS

As trivial as it might sound, annual health checkups are extremely important for every individual especially those that have crossed the age of 40 years. Busy work schedules put regular checkups as the least prioritized item on the list. But the truth of the matter is regular visits to the doctor can actually save your life. Regular dental, eye and medical checkups are essential every year to lead a long and healthy life. Akin to the proverb “Prevention is better than cure”, the biggest advantages of this routine remains to spot health issues early in their stage. With several screenings and physical examinations, patients’ current health and risks can be easily identified. Doctors can provide relevant health care plans to prevent any health issues that may crop up in the future. Another advantage would be that it saves on any ‘huge’ medical bill that might be incurred at a later period for an emergent health issue ignored previously that could have been addressed at a preliminary stage during a regular health check up itself. Dental checkups should be scheduled every six months to ascertain the presence of any periodontal disease and maintain oral health.

At Fayth Clinic the following annual health services are recommended:

  • X-ray
  • Pulmonary function tests
  • ECG
  • Stress test or 2 D echo
  • Vaccine guidance

Before a regular health checkup, it is also recommended to write down a list of changes or issues that you might have noticed such as lumps, body or skin changes etc. Also, changes in eating habits can be noted down. It is extremely important to reflect on any experience of depression, anxiety, distress, trauma and sleeping problems.

Fayth Clinic advises a 12hr fasting before any checkup.
