Everyone should get a yearly medical check up!
First of all, I want to make sure I'm clear. Everyone. Doesn't matter if you're in your 20s. We are seeing medical problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, fatty liver, and all sorts of things in all age groups, even teenagers nowadays. Things have definitely changed and it's important for you to get a medical evaluation with your primary care physician at least every year.
Visiting a doctor annually (or more often, depending on your health) can help you take a preventive approach to care. Prevention is the best thing you could do to live a long, healthy life. Even if you get cancer removing a 4 mm Stage 1 cancer is very different than a Stage 4 cancer that has metastasized throughout your whole body!
If you have conditions known to affect heart health, such as chronic kidney disease or diabetes, please make early efforts to manage these conditions to improve your overall health. Yes this will include lowering stress, eating a heart-healthy diet and exercising. If you aren’t sure where to begin, talk with your doctor about ways you can safely improve your health.
If you're busy, and it's inconvenient, a lot of physicians also do virtual consultations nowadays. You can even do basic lab testing from the comfort of your own home.
