As we hit mid-winter and 2012 is in full swing, it’s time to start making arrangements for your annual health screenings.
The editors of Runner’s World / Vitality write: “No matter how fit you are, you can’t change health risk factors like your genes, your family history, your race, or your age. Other aspects of your lifestyle count, too, including how you manage stress and your eating habits.”
How many of us started thinking about our long-term healthcare when we were 18, the recommended age to begin blood pressure screening. 18 may seem too young, but when conditions like high blood pressure show no early symptoms, your best course of action is to identify irregularities as soon as possible. Call your doctor to get more screening recommendations specific to your situation and feel free to contact us if you have any coverage eligibility questions or concerns.
