The importance of preventive health


When it comes to looking after our health, many of us still think reactively rather than proactively - waiting until we feel unwell before we see a doctor, or not prioritising taking care of our body until problems arise.

Preventive healthcare is the support you receive to maintain your health, rather than treating illness. It’s key to diagnosing medical conditions before they become a problem.

Preventing chronic diseases before you have symptoms is one of the most important things you can do to protect your health. Health screenings typically test for chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. It’s also an opportunity to ask for help on giving up smoking, support for improving mental health and wellbeing, and dietary and nutrition advice.

Having regular health screenings has many benefits including prevention, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and, most importantly, putting you in control of your health. They allow you to pause, take a step back, and assess where you are at that point in time with your health and wellbeing so you can:

• Identify any health risks early - when a condition is identified early, more treatments are available, and those treatments can be more effective, increasing the chances of a good prognosis. It can also help with underlying health concerns which could be affecting your day-to-day energy levels.

• Understand any lifestyle changes that might be needed - by identifying ways in which your lifestyle is affecting your overall wellbeing, health screens can help you to take positive steps towards a healthier you.

Health screenings have been found to significantly improve life expectancy, particularly for those aged between 30-491. And preventive care could mean fewer health issues as you age. You may also be able to prevent, or manage, health concerns that run in your family.
