Yes , and I recommend everyone have their own device to check their blood pressure at home .A blood test for thyroid and diabetes is a good idea.
And blood pressure should be measured on a regular basis.
I had stomach issues and went to my GP and when he examined me he thought I had gall bladder trouble . My GP asked me ," Are you a fried food fiend ! " . I said NO ! But I did eat a lot of fried food back then . Gall Bladder gone and I eat a better diet now .I'm not sure that any bloodwork would have caught my gall bladder issue as it was at the beginning stages, so there is that.
I would add these to the " preventive " , cut out as much fast food from your diet as possible , eliminate as many of the highly refined foods from your diet as you can like , sugar , wheat flour , junk food .We know that all sorts of "preventive" interventions save lives, improve quality of life, and save money. Does anyone seriously dispute this?
Get out and exercise ! Walking or swimming , hiking and many others that get you off the couch !
Make sure to get some sunshine , you get natural vitamin D just the way God intended . We are creatures of light .
Be you own health advocate and pay attention to your own body , it could be sending you signals that there is a problem .
So with much trepidation I did have a colonoscopy . It was much easier than I thought , no problems found and come back in 5 years was my verdict .
