5 reasons why preventive health check-ups are vital!

Regular check-ups help prevent disease and avoid the severity of many diseases. It also allows the doctors to continuously obtain information about your health for the benefit of health assessment, advice and appropriate treatment planning. As a result, your overall health will be stronger, and disease can be prevented since the beginning.


1. Reduce the risk of future illnesses

Physical health checks and mental health checks help ensure that your body and mind are always in good health. Preventive health check-up is a thorough physical examination together with lifestyle assessment so that the doctors can plan the right health care for individuals to prevent possible future diseases.


2. Identify diseases caused by stress

Today’s lifestyles, economic conditions, traffic problems as well as pollution are very stressful for people, especially those living in big cities. Chronic stress causes many diseases and disorders, particularly chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which affect both the body and mind. Preventive health screenings allow you to discuss your problems with the doctors along with checking your levels of stress hormones and antioxidants so that a right and effective treatment can be properly planned.


3. Discover asymptomatic disease

Some diseases are asymptomatic unless a thorough physical examination is carried out. Furthermore, they usually manifest themselves at an incurable stage, unlike influenza which manifests itself clearly at beginning. A health check-up will help you detect abnormalities early so you can take better care of your health. It will also detect potentially serious diseases that may be hidden.


4. Remind you to be more aware of your health

Many people overlook their health and rarely go to the hospital until they become sick and need treatment. In addition, they have unhealthy behaviors, especially in terms of exercise and diet. An annual preventive check-up will make you aware of your health condition and help you build healthy behaviors through consultation with the doctors and the analysis of the physical examination results.


5. Reduce overall health costs in the future

Regular health check-ups help prevent and avoid diseases or disorders in the early stages, so it reduces the severity of the illness. This means that it can help lessen the medical costs associated with the illness as well as the time and cost of absence from work, or the opportunity to live a normal life. Regular preventive check-ups with your doctors can also help you ensure that your health remains healthy. It decreases chances of getting sick or being hospitalized as prevention is better than waiting to get sick and then treating.
