Today is Topic Tuesday at Aortic Hope.
♥️Essentia Health's article reminds people to "check in" on their health and that's because: "As warming temperatures encourage more time outdoors and a return to busier lifestyles it's important to get that check-up".
In this community, we are constantly scheduled for scans and echos and maybe even blood work, but there are many other preventive tests or appointments we should be scheduling.
👉As we know and Essentia mentions, "Successful outcomes are more likely when conditions are detected early. Annual check-ups for adults include tests for blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol; cancer screenings like mammograms and colonoscopies; the management of chronic conditions; addressing male- and female-specific concerns; and family planning/birth control." We would like to add skin cancer screenings are important too!
🌸It's time to SPRING into action and schedule any appropriate preventive care appointments that make sense for you ♥️
