Annual exam at a doctor’s office consist of following important aspects:
Various medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart murmur, abnormal heart rhythm, anemia, kidney failure, liver damage, electrolyte imbalance, thyroid disease etc. may exist without you having any symptoms. A routine physical exam and simple lab tests can help diagnose these conditions. Immunizations protect you from various diseases. Cancer screenings can help to diagnose precancerous and early cancerous lesions. Diet and exercise counseling may lead you to the path towards healthy weight.
Annual exam and preventive care can help surface many conditions at an early stage when treatment is easier, affordable and less invasive.
