Having regular checkups is extremely important for your health. They can help find problems before they start or find them early enough, they can be treated easily.
Regular checkups work best when you are honest with your doctor about your lifestyle habits. They don’t know where to look without this background information. This information can also help you find out what other types of screenings (tests to check for a disease if there are no symptoms) or doctors you may need to see after your appointment.
When you go to your checkup, be sure to have a list of any symptoms or pain you may have and an updated list of any medications you may be taking. This, along with good communication with your doctor, allows you to be as healthy as you can.
