A combination of daily physical exercise, a balanced diet, minimal alcohol use and no tobacco consumption are the basic requirements for illness prevention.
Howvever, regardless of your how healthy your lifestyle is, what you inherit genetically may predispose you to certain conditions.
Yearly full health check-ups are available to all adults and children, including comprehensive assessments of patients’ physical and emotional well-being. These involve relevant medical analyses, health reports and any follow-up treatment.
If a condition has been identified within your family historically or at abnormally low ages, you could be required to submit to screening tests earlier or more frequently than stipulated below.
|Condition||How we screen for it|
|Hypertension||Blood pressure taken every time you visit|
|High cholesterol||Blood testing during fasting|
|Diabetes||Blood testing during fasting|
|Osteoporosis||Bone density scan, usually for 65+ year olds|
Breast screening at annual check-up
Mammogram annually after age 40-50
|Cervical cancer||Pap smear every 1-3 years|
|Colon cancer||Colonoscopy after age 50|
|Prostate cancer||PSA blood test and prostate exam after age 50|
|Skin cancer||Skin exam at annual check-up|
Several conditions are not common enough to justify screening for all, but should be applied to people or families at high risk:
|Abdominal aortic aneurysm||Ultrasound in men aged 65-75|
|Lung cancer||CT scan of lungs if you are 55-75 years old, have smoked heavily, and have smoked over the past 15 years.|
My job is to help people recover from illnesses while employing not only traditional but also alternative methods of treatment. Over the years, such approach proved to be the most functional.
