Cardiac Procedures Vs Preventive Health Checkups - Comparative Study

Rohan, an apparently fit 33 year old professional who took the health checkup just out of curiosity, was taken by surprise when found that his cholesterol levels are way beyond normal. Early detection & timely management saved unnecessary complications for this man with strong family history of heart diseases.

Coronary artery diseases or heart illnesses are the commonest ones found among Indians. Like all other fatal lifestyle diseases, they remain latent and symptomless in its initial stages.

As the diseases progresses, symptoms such as breathlessness on exertion, pain in chest and left hand & nausea/giddiness begin to appear. By the time patient consults a doctor, abnormalities in the heart’s artery or its structure have already been developed.

Reaching to this stage, the only alternative left is to go for extensive & expensive procedures and lifelong dependence on medication.

Prevention is Your Saviour!

All this and much more could have been avoided or at least more conveniently managed if the disease would have been caught in its initial stage through regular preventive health checkups.

For example, a simple blood test once in 6-8 months can warn you against your rising cholesterol levels (major reason for blocked arteries of heart) and upon knowing it, you can control it by dietary changes or short term medications. Once taken care of in initial stage, it may not lead to a full blown heart disease, where elaborate procedures are needed to correct the abnormality.

Annual preventive checkups can help you in several ways,

  • Saves life!
  • Save physical trauma & mental stress
  • Save huge amount of money & precious time
  • Early detection of diseases helps in better treatment & management of diseases
  • Protect you from ugly surprises of medical emergencies

Prevention is definitely better than cure!!

To live healthy & happy, one must keep a check on the body’s functioning by going for regular health checkups. This helps in assessing risk factors and diagnosing diseases at an early stage, which will result in effective treatment and better management of the condition.
