What is the best preventive health check-up for older adults?
Check-ups are only “preventive” when we do them regularly. As long as we keep screening our health, many issues can get diagnosed and treated before it’s too late. Here are the tests you should do regularly to check for signs of common diseases:
• Blood pressure test
• Fasting blood sugar test
• Oxygen measurement
• Bone density measurement
• Lipid Profile
• Function tests of kidney and liver
• Ultrasound of abdomen
• TSH Test for thyroid
Regular breast examination for women and prostate examination for men are also recommended.
