As we age, our nutrient needs and lifestyle habits change, which can have a strong impact on our health. This is why it’s important to have an Annual Health Check-up as it will help identify any abnormalities in your body and any deficiencies in your blood. Detecting that early can save you a lot of trouble, both by way of your health as well as medical costs.
The short answer is: yes. Although there has been a lot of debate around this topic, with people advocating for and against Annual Health Exams, the fact of the matter is that it can be a life saving measure. When you go for a Health Check every year, your doctor will have a record of your vitals. This will then act as a baseline for them to keep track of your health and easily notice if something’s amiss. So, yes, an Annual Health Check can be very beneficial for your overall health as well as to identify any issues immediately as they crop up. In medicine, the sooner you spot something, the better your chances of treating it successfully.
