Why is (my) prevention important?

If someone were to ask us do we take care about our health, I think “Yes” would be the most common answer for those that are healthy in given moment. However, health care is much wider set of activities than visiting a doctor once the health problem occurred.

The term prevention explains what health care should be: proper nutrition, regular physical activity, abstinence from the use of alcohol and nicotine, and most importantly – preventive medical checkups and early diagnosis.

What are the key advantages of prevention?

  1. Responsibility and efficient decision making. Undergoing regular medical checkups, you establish control over your life. Every medical report gives you insight into what is happening to your health and provides you with enough information to make right decision: what should I do next in order to reduce potential risks and improve the general condition of my health?
  2. Early diagnosis and reaction. According to World Health Organization, even 80% of chronic diseases can be prevented by early diagnosis. In case that preventive checkup indicates existence of health problem you can act quickly and eliminate or at least reduce its effects. This way you can prevent onset or development of the disease, while sparing yourself from the unpleasant and painful symptoms that can occur at a later stage.
  3. Saving money and time. A preventive checkup when everything is fine, can seem as an unnecessary cost. However, investing in your health and acting on time will save you a lot of money on long runs that you can use smartly. On the other hand, time is precious and it’s best to spend it when we are healthy and full of energy.
  4. Better quality of life. Proper nutrition, physical activity and preventive checkups directly affect the quality and length of life. By understanding and responding to our own needs, we have opportunity to lead healthier, happier and more active life.
  5. No waiting. We don’t have to wait for health problem to occur in order to undergo a medical checkup. Nor we have to wait for months to get our turn. Each one of us has right to take care about his health, without explaining why prevention is important. It is always the right time to check your health, but there are some examinations that you should undergo at least once per year.

What are the most common preventive checkups?

Sometimes it seems that time runs slowly, but when it comes to regular annual checkup – we wonder how that year went so fast. Sometimes two years passes if we don’t feel any symptom. Depending on sex and age, each of us should undergo different checkups, but something is common to everyone – control of tooth health, ophthalmologist checkup and basic lab analysis. In addition, women should go to regular annual gynecologist examinations, while elderly people should visit the cardiologist.

Lack of time, lack of money and prevention

Public health system is burdened with number of users, which makes it almost impossible to get in line for preventive checkup. On the other hand, private health insurance requires the occurrence of health problem in order to use its services. So what is the solution when you want preventive checkup – but are not willing to wait nor you have an issue?
