People often forget to take care of their health owing to today’s fast-paced lives and hectic schedules. This, in many cases, may lead to people developing chronic heart diseases, cancer, mental health issues, diabetes, and other hormonal imbalances. Hence, regular health check-ups become essential for one and all irrespective of age, gender, or occupation.
“Timely health check-ups are important as they can help detect problems even before they start. When there is a quick response to diseases at an early stage, it automatically increases the chances of cure. How often one needs medical assistance and check-ups depends on one’s age, family history, and other lifestyle choices,” said Dr Bela Sharma, additional director, internal medicine, Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurugram.
When one sees a doctor regularly, the doctor is able to see the changes in the patient’s body and therefore, is able to detect health conditions or diseases early. By accessing the correct health services, screenings, and treatment, one ensures that they are taking a much-needed and important step towards living a longer and healthier life, explained Dr Sharma.
