So your busy, fit and in good health, never have to see the GP because you just don’t get sick that often. That means you are healthy right? Odds are you are right..
However, as we move away from the thirties and into the mid-forties and onwards it is important to get checked out.
Why? Because the cure is better than the disease, it’s that simple. Getting to know your GP and getting advice can help identify any under lying health problems early. These types of health issues you really do want to know about sooner rather than later. Read on to see what is involved in getting your ‘Man Check’.
The purpose of these visits is to:
Screen for medical issues
Assess your risk for future medical problems
Encourage a healthy lifestyle
Help you get to know your GP in case of an illness
What to expect at your health check
When you have a health check, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history, your family’s history of disease and your lifestyle. Your diet, weight, how much you exercise and whether you smoke will also be discussed.
Men should have regular health checks. See your doctor for regular medical check-ups to help you stay healthy and to pick up early warning signs of disease or illness. Cardiovascular (heart) disease, diabetes and some cancers can often be picked up in their early stages, when treatment may be more successful.
