Why should you get a medical checkup every year?

« Back to Articles

Making healthy choices is essential to reduce the likelihood of chronic illnesses and improve your quality of life.

These are some of the reasons why you should keep up with your preventive checks:

  • Early detection and prevention of chronic illnesses

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), avoiding chronic conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity will not only benefit your overall well-being, it will also reduce the risk of serious infectious diseases like influenza (flu) and COVID-19. 

  • Education and guidance to make informed decisions about your health

A medical checkup can help you determine the current state of your health and make decisions about the appropriate treatment to improve your health.  Similarly, sharing information about your family medical history during your checkup can help in the early detection of certain diseases.

  • Schedule subsequent recurring appointments

During your annual checkup, you get a better idea of the routine appointments needed to take proper care of your health, such as annual dental cleanings, X-rays, laboratory tests, and other monitoring studies.
