The importance of regular whole body checkup is often understated. It has been a tradition to visit the doctors only when you’re sick especially here in Nepal. If you ask someone when was the last time they visited a doctor, you are likely to hear an answer referring to a time they were sick or they don’t remember.
Someone who generally has good health might go years without seeing a doctor. People underestimate how necessary it is to get a whole body checkup in order to lead a healthy life. With our fast-paced life, we hardly make enough time to ourselves, we do not eat properly, sleep enough, or exercise regularly - leading to an unhealthy lifestyle. We tend to overlook minor health issues until it takes a serious toll on our health.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of lifestyle-related diseases like heart disease, obesity, hypertension, etc. to a great extent. But nothing beats a whole body checkup on a regular basis to reduce the risk of chronic and life-threatening disease. Healthcare professionals recommend a whole body checkup every 6 months to find any bodily changes. There are a range of tests to choose from, ranging from comprehensive to specific tests, depending on your needs. At TDO Labs, we provide personalized health check-up packages and individual tests to assess you. Even a healthy individual is suggested to get themselves checked for a thorough evaluation to find any diseases lurking below the surface.
Here are few reasons why you need a whole body checkup:
- Reduces the risk of serious health conditions
Several diseases such as cancer, hypertension, and high cholesterol show few symptoms that make them hard to diagnose. These diseases, if left undiagnosed, increase the risk of health complications. A regular whole body checkup can detect these diseases early and eradicate any complications that may arise later in life.
- Identify stress-related diseases
With a busy lifestyle, we are constantly stressing about our education, family, work, relationships and whatnot which drains us emotionally and physically. Stress increases the risk of diseases like heart attack, diabetes, depression, etc. and further makes us prone to diseases. With a whole-body checkup, you can detect these diseases and find the right treatment for your disease.
- More aware of the health
Regular visits to a doctor makes you more aware of your health as you are constantly informed about your bodily changes and needs. Over time, you tend to start taking care of your health as prescribed by the experts and lead a healthier life by making good decisions regarding diet and physical activities.
- Reduces health care cost in the long run
Taking care of your health is an investment and it will save your health care cost in the long run. With the cost of medication, treatment and hospital charges increasing every day, an early diagnosis of a disease can save you a lot of time, effort and money. Also, TDO Labs offers great packages at an affordable rate for your convenience.
- Avoid self-diagnosis
With the availability of the internet, we tend to self-diagnose ourselves that often leads to wrong diagnoses and panic. Sometimes we tend to suppress symptoms by taking the wrong medication which leads to greater complications. Getting ourselves checked every now and then by a professional is a great way to lead a healthy life.
- Increased productivity
When you have a healthy mind and body, you can focus clearly on your work. You adapt to a healthy lifestyle which leads to increased concentration and productivity. You do not need to worry about possible causes of small health issues that might arise every now and then.
