Obviously, check-ups are imperative for anybody who is aware of the fact that they have a family history of a potentially serious disease (cancer, heart disease, etc.) but it is important for everybody to take care and have regular check-ups.  Doctors recommend that healthy people in their 40s should have a check-up every 2-3 years and that, once 50, the check-ups should take place annually.

Medicine is there to cure illnesses but to avoid the endurance of an illness in the first place is a much better option. By detecting ailments in the earliest stage possible, a cure is also much more feasible.

Among the illnesses that can be detected by a check-up are the following:-

  • Illnesses related to heart conditions (e.g. high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity…)
  • Cancer
  • Thyroid problems
  • Bone disease (e.g. osteoporosis)
  • Vascular conditions (e.g. abdominal aortic aneurysms)

One of the reasons that people don’t get around to having that check-up that they should have had ages ago is because of a lack of time owing to their busy, stressful and hectic lifestyle.  However, one cannot and must not forget just how important that check-up could be.

A few days away from work and stress is always a good idea and you could take advantage of the break from your busy routine to get that check-up done as well.  Where better than in the warm, relaxing Canary Islands?
