The Importance of Prevention and Early Detection

Often, the earlier a medical condition is diagnosed, the more likely the individual is to successfully overcome the issue.

Living a long, fulfilling life requires you to take the time to evaluate your health and take the necessary precautions. It is common to believe that you do not have any reason for a medical screening if you’re not experiencing symptoms to be worried about. However, this kind of thinking results in so many missed diagnoses, resulting in untimely deaths across the country. To avoid the worst and ensure the best for your overall health, you’ll need to schedule time to have regular checkups. Prevention awareness and early detection of any diseases can help save your life.

The Importance of Screenings & Tests

You’re understandably busy in your day-to-day life. We understand that most like to spend their free time relaxing and with the ones you love. Seeking preventive care ensures you have more time to spend with the people you care about the most. Diseases that are diagnosed at an early stage have a much easier time of being treated. Cancer in particular needs to be treated as soon as possible in order to keep it from spreading. Speaking with your doctor about your particular health conditions will allow them to suggest which screenings and tests you ought to have. Your family history, race, and living habits could make you more susceptible to certain health concerns.

One of the worst tendencies of Americans in general is not getting evaluated until they have symptoms. By the time symptoms are noticeable, it’s likely the disease has become more advanced, possibly making it harder to treat. Medical exams will equip you with the knowledge you need to either prevent any future diseases from forming or treat any diseases that have already been diagnosed.

An exam is the only way to give yourself total peace of mind when it comes to your well-being.

Medical Tests Every Man Should Get

There are certain health screenings for men that should take place annually . A heart disease screening is one of them. Cardiovascular disease affects a staggering amount of people, so getting tested for a coronary artery disease is in your best interest. Heart disease can be serious if not treated properly. That being said, a diagnosis doesn’t meanthat you can’t live a happy life. Detecting heart disease early allows you to make the necessary lifestyle changes to keep your heart healthy. A high body mass index (BMI), heavy drinking, and lack of exercise can all contribute to the development of heart disease.

Your annual physical should include a blood pressure test, which indicates whether or not you’re at risk for more harmful diseases. If you know you have high blood pressure, getting tested for diabetes ensures your glucose levels aren’t dangerously high. A medical professional will test your blood sugar level to determine whether or not you have diabetes. Whether it’s type 1, type 2, or pre-diabetes, spotting this disease early and managing it will ensure it doesn’t dictate your life. Millions of people have learned to live with their condition and live accomplished lives by understanding that their body has special needs. A diabetes test is the first step towards knowing more and taking action.

Especially as you get older, you’ll want to get screened for colon, testicular, and prostate cancer to make sure there’s nothing to worry about. Cancers are notoriously more difficult to treat in later stages, as the disease has had more time to develop and spread. You may have friends or family that have battled, or are currently, battling cancer. Their guidance and advice can help you throughout the screening process and beyond.

Depression is a very serious disorder that needs to be addressed properly if found to be present in an individual. In addition to hotlines and online tests that are available to the public, you can speak with your doctor to see whether you may have clinical depression. Your sadness or discomfort isn’t your fault and is something that can be managed with the right treatments and right attitude. Your best bet is to speak with your close ones about your feelings and accept that you’re having trouble.

Seeking help when you know you need it shouldn’t feel shameful because it isn’t. Treatment for depression simply teaches you how to be the best possible version of yourself.

Pros: It’s nice working here. With this agency, you have a very flexible schedule. There are a lot of 4-5 hour shifts, although they do offer overnight shifts as well from 8 hours, maybe 12. You can qualify for employee benefits after 1 year of working here. They have “emergency rate” wages as well, these are last minute shifts that can raise from $1-5 an hour; if they hired you at $14hr and they give you an (e-rate) emergency rate then it’ll probably be from $15, $16, $17+ depending on the case. Traveling is required and they did have a virtual interview with me. They have employees working 24 hours if you decide to call them. They use the CC-Go app to clock in and clock out. They also give you a link to a corporate perks website that will give you discounts on phones, plane tickets, hotels ect. Cons: Communication with the office/managers can be difficult at times because when you call, anyone/random person can answer. My personal recommendation as a company request for employee(s): Sending each caregiver a “care package” in a ziplock bag with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, ect. in case a facility or client doesn’t have the supplies needed. Having these “care packages” would help the company prevent any further sicknesses when dealing with urination and bowel movements if anything were to happen.
