Timeline For Medical Check Up?
How many years should a medical check-up be done ???
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Medical Check Up or MCU is a comprehensive medical examination to determine if there are early signs of a person for a particular disease. Specifically, what will be checked in the MCU can vary depending on the context. There are MCUs that companies provide to their employees, there are MCUs that are carried out independently for certain reasons, there are MCUs in the form of certain packages depending on the health care facilities that provide them. In essence, the examination can be very diverse and not specific, because the aim is to find out whether the body has certain problems.
The most common checks are vital signs, and these include blood pressure, pulse, breathing frequency, oxygen exchange and the presence or absence of pain. You can also ask or be asked to do a blood test in the form of checking blood sugar levels, cholesterol, gout, and so forth.
Regarding your question, because this is not a mandatory examination, there is no attachment for someone to have to do the MCU at any one time period. But what has been suggested so far is that the MCU should be done every 6-12 months. Too often will not produce significant results, but if it is too far away, it will not be effective in maintaining health on an ongoing basis.
What is clear, MCU is only a tool to detect your health. Beyond that too, you still have to maintain health with regular exercise, adequate rest, avoid cigarette smoke, alcohol and stress, multiply the consumption of nutrient-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables, enough to drink water, maintain ideal body weight, and do not consume drugs without advice doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
