About Health Screening
Some diseases can be prevented by a healthy lifestyle. Other diseases cannot be prevented, but we can reduce their impact by finding them early and subsequently taking preventive measures to prevent disease progression and add years of quality life. Our doctors believe strongly in this aspect of healthcare management.
Why is Health Screening So Important?
Health screening is important because it is a way to:
- Find medical conditions or disease: The main goal of health screening is to find diseases or medical conditions early while they are easier and less expensive to treat.
- Learn about your risk factors for disease: Screening tests may reveal risk factors. A risk factor is a behavior or health condition that put us at risk for disease. Risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure or obesity, for example, may lead to heart disease, diabetes or cancer. Knowing about our risk factors allows us to make lifestyle changes that prevent the diseases they may lead to.
- Track your health: Test results provide a track record of medical information. With a history of screening test results, we can track and own our health over time.
