Everyone has been ignoring his/her health in today’s fast moving life and this ignorance can prove to be very dangerous for him/her and even his/her family. There is more inclination of their attention towards financial wellness rather than physical and mental wellness. One ignores the regular health checkups as one thinks that he/she is too healthy to do that. There is very less time in giving importance to health. The development in the healthcare industry has been made possible because of the active participation of people in reaction of their health problems.
One must have heard a phrase that prevention is better than cure but the applicability comes into action because of the awareness of people. As we know, diseases can affect anyone at any time, age, gender, culture, irrespective of the occupation. So, this means there is always a risk factor that exists at all times. To minimize or completely avoid this risk there should be done a master health checkup and the suitable package must be chosen according to the needs of the person. The needs are determined through various determinants like the age, gender, family history, past diseases etc.
The risk for any disease will not mean that a person will go through the disease in the future. These risks can be eliminated if these are taken care of in the early stages. The full body checkup is very important for everyone including those who think that they do not have any disorders, deficiencies, or symptoms of any disease. Everyone, from young to old, senior to junior should go through these checkups regularly. There some diseases which do not affect the body at the initial stages and thus a person doesn’t come to know about any of them as he doesn’t feel any abnormality in daily functions. At these stages, these are very easy to treat and the treatment is effective. But if a person comes to know about these at later stages, then these are very difficult to treat and there has to more expenditure on the treatment.
As these checkups are very popular, some experts think that there are some unnecessary tests that can lead to deterioration of one’s health are also the ingredients of these checkups. This perception is not wrong in some cases. For instance, there is a CT scan that involves harmful radiations which have an associated risk and should not be done. These scans also do not carry any evidence of providing any benefits to body in the future.
But, to list down the advantages of these checkups, one can say that, there are various areas in which these checkups are directed. These areas can be to detect deficiency of any vitamin, or any other nutrient or to detect more than required levels of blood sugar, cholesterol etc. To detect deficiency, many tests like Vitamin D test, vitamin B tests etc. are included in the master health checkup. For increased level of blood sugar, remedies are communicated to control these levels so that the risk of a heart disease is eliminated completely.
