Preventative Care Helps Our Future To Look Brighter!
How many times have you heard how important it is to eat right, exercise, get an annual check-up, monitor your blood pressure, have your heart checked, etc…simple things, right? Well, we all tend to make mental notes and tell ourselves we’ll get to it “later.” However, the reality is, life does get busy and many of us continue to put off seeing the doctor until something happens but those delays can cost us our health.
The truth is we ALL NEED preventative medicine! We’ve all heard how early detection gives us a better chance of survival. How can we all ignore that? The biggest reason is simple avoidance and FEAR! As Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” We can overcome our fears by becoming more aware of what our bodies are saying through regular preventative care.
For example, many people in the age group of 40 and older are at a higher risk of being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. This disease can be detected early by simply getting regular blood work done and understanding what your levels are. Should you find out your sugar levels are high and you may be pre-diabetic; simple lifestyle changes may be the answer or you may have avoided regular check-ups for so long that medication is now needed. Whatever the case may be Dr. Schuster can help you but you have to take the first step and make the appointment. Invest in YOU, you’re worth it.
High blood pressure and high cholesterol are other major diseases that cause many people to have strokes and heart attacks. Again, this is preventable, if you take pre-cautionary measures. Have your blood drawn regularly to know what your levels are. This gives you the power to make educated decisions about your health. Taking a vested interest in seeing the doctor for your preventative health care needs could be the difference in detecting early what could be fatal over time by not doing so.. Whatever it is, when you are working closely with a doctor like Dr. Schuster, you can feel confident that your health is getting the personal attention you deserve.
Having a colonoscopy, a mammogram, and seeing your dermatologist regularly are just a few other examples of preventative care that saves lives. In these cases Dr. Schuster is able to recommend you to the needed specialist.
Preventive medical care saves people’s lives! Don’t make excuses; make your appointment today!
