Preventative Health Checks

At The Grange Medical Practice, we believe prevention is key to maintaining good health. That’s why we offer a range of preventative health checks designed to identify potential health risks early on, allowing for early intervention and improved long-term health outcomes.

What are preventative health checks?

Preventative health checks are comprehensive assessments that go beyond simply waiting for symptoms to arise. These checks typically include:

  • Medical history review: Discussing your family history and any existing health conditions.
  • Lifestyle assessment: We’ll explore your diet, exercise habits, and any risk factors like smoking.
  • Physical examination: A basic check-up to assess your overall health.
  • Blood tests: These may screen for cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, and other health markers.
  • Vaccinations: Ensuring you’re up-to-date on recommended vaccinations.

Benefits of preventative health checks

There are numerous benefits to having regular preventative health checks. These include:

  • Early detection of potential health problems: Catching health issues early allows for prompt treatment and potentially better outcomes.
  • Reduced risk of developing chronic diseases: By identifying risk factors, you can take steps to lower your chances of developing conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers.
  • Improved overall health and well-being:¬†Preventative care allows you to take a proactive approach to your health and make positive lifestyle changes.
  • Early detection of any fatal disease: Finding early and preventing it from happening is always better than finding a cure.
  • Peace of Mind:¬†Knowing your health status can provide peace of mind and allow you to focus on living a healthy life.

Who should consider preventative health checks?

Preventative health checks are beneficial for everyone, regardless of age or current health status. However, they are especially important for:

  • Individuals with a family history of certain health conditions.
  • People who are overweight or obese.
  • Smokers or those who live with someone who smokes.
  • People with a sedentary lifestyle.
