How Can You Benefit from an Adult Health Screening?
Adult health screenings review your personal history, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), and involve a physical exam, preventive screenings and counseling. They are recommended every one to three years, subject to your particular risk factors.
Adult health screenings provide you with the peace of mind of knowing exactly how healthy you are. Knowing that you are engaging in responsible self care can give you confidence in your daily commitments and in your goals for healthy aging and living.
Identifying your Risk for Chronic Disease
Risk for chronic disease doesn’t just come down to genetics. Many behavioral, lifestyle and environmental factors must be considered when developing a prevention plan. Preventing chronic diseases requires changes in behaviors like smoking, physical activity, and diet.
The more educated you can become about your body, how you can best fuel it, and what can endanger it, the better off you will be. Food policies in your area and the environment in which you live are key factors to how healthy you are and will be.
“Reducing identified, modifiable dietary and lifestyle risk factors could prevent most cases of CAD, stroke, diabetes, and many cancers among high-income populations,” said the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Adult health screenings help you do just that.
