Importance of preventive check-ups

Preventive healthcare or prophylaxis are the measures we take for preventing any disease. While exercise, a balanced diet, and a healthy lifestyle are crucial to maintaining good health, it is also very important to get periodic checkups. The idea that one should only visit the doctor or get tests done only when one is sick is flawed. Genetic predisposition, environmental factors, lifestyle, food habits, disease agents, etc. are all contributing factors to our health. Preventive care helps us in the early detection of any risk factors, and potentially can save lives. They are essential for everyone irrespective of age, gender, or occupation. At LifeUno, our goal is to educate and empower you about your holistic well-being by bringing quality preventive care to your doorstep to detect and eliminate the disease before it becomes serious and life-threatening.

  • Live a longer, healthier life

Regular visits to the doctor ensure that no symptoms are overlooked. A medical health professional can observe any changes that one might miss. By routinely accessing the correct health services, screenings, and treatment, one makes sure that they live a life healthy and happy.

  • Pay Less Over time

Sure, getting tested periodically will cost you some money, but it will also save huge treatment costs in the long run. It is always better to determine the threats in the early stages than getting to know later, this translates into better health outcomes for you and lower healthcare costs.

For instance, your doctor might get you tested for breast cancer if someone in your family had its history. Detecting cancer early on will not only save costs but will also exponentially increase your chances of beating the odds.

  • Early detection & management of conditions

Preventive screenings reduce the risk factors​ for many of the leading causes of death. Periodic check ups will eliminate your chances of becoming just another static. Seeking the right kind of care at the right time will limit the risk of complications by closely monitoring existing conditions.
