Statistics have shown that millions of people die every year as a result of negligence to health. The hard truth is that, many people are more concerned about wealth than health forgetting the fact that, enjoying wealth is absolutely impossible in the grave.

Numerous death occurrences are traceable to inadequate medical checkups, thus the necessity of sensitizing the public regarding the grave consequences of disregarding medical checkups.

It’s saddening that a lot of us wish for longevity but ignorantly sign our death warrants as a result of nonchalant attitude to vital medical examination. Embarking on regular medical checkups is one of the responsibilities many of us find difficult to indulge in, which is awful.

The need for medical checkups is undoubtedly underestimated by a large number of people. Count yourself very lucky for stumbling on this page.

Below are some of the major reasons why regular medical checkup is very necessary.

1. Regular Medical Checkup Saves Life.

There are several deadly diseases which are capable of eliminating one’s life if not ascertained at the early stage. Diseases such as diarrhea, lower respiratory infections, lung cancer  among other ailments kill very fast if left untreated; hence the reason why regular medical checkup is highly essential for healthy living.

Regular medical checkup is as important as eating regularly if you desire to live long and stay healthy.

In as much as lack of medical checkups have caused the death of an enormous number of people, It is also relevant to note that regular medical checkup has saved a lot of persons from the calamitous venom of death.

2. Prevention Is Better Than Cure.

The phrase above is a very popular saying and its validity is yet to be disputed. Regular medical checkup is a preventive measure that has no substitute.

Regular medical checkup brings about early detection of any disease which may cause potential damage if not ascertained and treated.

Cancer.org has affirmed that it’s extremely crucial to detect cancer and other diseases at the early stage because early detection increases the survival rate.

There are some diseases that are insidious and unnoticeable. The progression of such diseases can not be tracked unless the victim goes through medical checkups to ensure the threats orchestrated by the disease is curbed.

3. Regular Medical Checkup Keeps You Updated.

Failure to know about your health status is a disease itself, which is categorized under the malady of ignorance. The result of your screenings will tell your doctor all they need to know about your health. This will also keep you abreast regarding your health condition.

Getting to know about your unfavorable health status shouldn’t make you feel worried, you should rather be happy for discovering it early enough.

If you’re aware of your health status, you’ll definitely adopt some preventative measures that would help you to curb the disease. A diabetic person who is fully aware of his/her condition would know the kind of foods to consume.

4. Regular Medical Checkup Reduces The Cost Of Healthcare.

Early detection of any disease helps to restrain the risk of undergoing surgery and other complicated medical operations which erupt as a result of the escalation of minor diseases.

With the aid of medical checkups, you can always find out if you have high or low blood sugar in your body or hepatitis B, high or low blood pressure.

If minor diseases are left undetected and untreated as the case may be, the cost of treating them later would definitely be high, which may likely not be affordable.

To avert the danger of unwarranted medical expenditures, it’s highly advisable to embark on regular medical checkups. Always go for medical screenings.

5. Blood Tests

During medical checkup, the laboratory technician would definitely carry out series of blood tests. These are done to ensure that all the diseases hidden within your circulatory system are exposed.

Diabetes, cholesterol, cancer, high blood pressure, anemia, HIV/AIDS, as well as coronary artery diseases can all be diagnosed through blood test. Always be mindful of blood tests when going for medical checkup.

There are many reasons why you regularly need to embark on medical checkups but I’m very sure the points above would sensitize the public including you.

In conclusion, the essence of going for medical checkups can never be overemphasized. However, it’s also very important to meet a professional laboratory technician. Don’t fall into the hands of half baked lab technicians because of the urge of getting a cheaper service.

Your health should always be your priority. Life itself has given you an opportunity to live it to the fullest. Make the best out of it by staying healthy. It is for the best.
