The age of 30 comes with lots of responsibilities. It’s the age where you are probably starting off parenting. Or, you could be looking for a good-paying job to satisfy your ever-growing list of responsibilities. With such a busy schedule, it’s easy for you to forget scheduling a visit to your doctor.
Unfortunately, the sad truth is that as you age, you likely won’t feel or look the same as you were before. Therefore, the following are the top four diagnostic tests that you should budget for after turning 30.
The health of your heart is one thing you shouldn’t ignore. As you turn 30, you need to ensure your heart and the cardiovascular system are working properly. Alongside blood pressure, it’s also important to check your cholesterol levels.
Note that high blood pressure or bad cholesterol can put you at risk of heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. Keeping a close eye on this aspect of your health is well worth it in the long run.
A colonoscopy is a screening that is used to test for colon cancer and other GI issues. It’s best to diagnose cancers as early as possible while they are still treatable. Because of this, you’ll want to get tested regularly, even if you have no adverse symptoms. Save some of your budget for a visit at a local specialist like Gastro Health.
Usually, the doctor will use a flexible tube with an equipped camera to view the interiors of the colon for abnormalities. More importantly, if your family has a history of colon cancer or polyps, then going for a colonoscopy isn’t negotiable.
Your skin is another vital organ worth taking care of. With the growing number of skin cancer cases, it's wise that you make an effort to visit a dermatologist for some skin analysis and testing.
Diagnosing a small patch of skin cancer early is vital to prevent it from spreading. Keep a close eye out for new or changing moles on your skin and visit a dermatologist regularly.
To maintain a healthy smile, scheduling regular visits to dentists is necessary. This will enable you to detect early teeth problems such as cavities or gum disease. Better yet, a dentist will also help clean your mouth to maintain good hygiene.
Your teeth can also be an indicator for other potential health issues, so this is an aspect of your health you shouldn’t neglect.
Your health is probably the most important thing you should pay attention to as you get older. Regular diagnostic testing is one of the best ways to prevent serious health conditions, and it makes treatment easier and more effective. Be sure to make room in your budget for these tests.
