Part of maintaining good health, would be to see your doctor for a health assessment, even if you have no symptoms.
The frequency of this would be determined by many factors, including age, sex, medication and family history.
Much emphasis is on the collection and assessment of blood tests.
But equally as important, are addressing risk factors of smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of exercise, weight gain and sexually transmitted diseases.
During the consultation, remember to ask your doctor to check your blood pressure, weight and height, and to mention if you suffer from mental illness.
If your examination and results are clear, please see your doctor should you develop new symptoms or feel unwell.
