Looks can be deceiving...
Has this ever happened to you? You take a bite out of a nice, fresh apple only to find that the inside is rotten. Just like the apples, you may be a picture of health...but are you healthy?
Health Screens enable you to screen for early signs of disease. For example, a person with diabetes will have a raised fasting blood sugar level long before the onset of symptoms such as thirst, weight loss, or non-healing wounds. Elevated blood cholesterol and triglycerides levels can also be observed years before the onset of heart disease and stroke.
By conducting a health screen, it will be able to provide you with the following useful information:
Baseline values - Health screening provides a set of baseline values at that point in time and against which future tests can be compared.
Prevention of disease - Health screening can detect abnormalities or diseases which the person is not aware of and allow for further investigations, treatment or preventive measures.
Pleasures of life - To prevent overzealous curb on your food intake and extreme change in lifestyles which could lead to deficiency disorders and unnecessary loss of pleasures of life.
Lifestyle changes are a very effective way to substantially reduce risk but to make those changes, you first need to know if you are at risk. Knowledge gives you the power to take charge of your health.
Remember... Your health is your greatest asset and early detection can save lives!
