Dr Nazeer Khan explains the need of frequent health check ups to promote the prevention of diseases.

A team of doctors under the guidance of the U.S. The Department of Health and Human Services studies the importance of screening tests for early diagnosis and disease prevention. This group is known as the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

The primary objective of prevention and promotion of health is to reduce the burden of suffering for major preventable illnesses. Early prevention can be critical in most of the cases and can save the patient from a lot of trouble and cost of the treatment.

The task force identified 70 leading causes of death and disabilities in the United States and rated them by frequency, prevalence, incidence, and potential for progress. The Task Force has made suggestions on the approaches used to prevent these diseases by different strategies.

There are three levels of preventative care: all three of these levels of preventative care are key components of disease prevention and maintenance.

  1. Primary prevention requires measures that can entirely prevent illness from arising in individuals at risk. Another example is immunization of such vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles and tetanus.
  2. Secondary prevention recognizes proven disease risk factors. Checking blood pressure, cholesterol, and conducting Pap tests for cervical cancer screening are examples of irregular findings that can lead to successful treatments which can prevent severe diseases from emerging.
  3. Tertiary prevention is a method to improve wellbeing after a disease has been identified. An example is a management strategy to prevent a person from getting another cardiac arrest after a heart condition has been identified.

Preventive treatments a doctor can use during your check-up:

  1. Screening tests are essential for early diagnosis of disease. Examples include physical examinations, blood pressure measurements, Pap tests, and lab testing.
  2. Immunizations include injections such as a tetanus booster, flu shots, and other vaccines.
  3. Medication prescription can be as easy as recommending that an individual with a heart disease risk factor should take aspirin on a daily basis.
  4. Advice on health promotion, both before and during a health issue, can reduce the burden of suffering or prevent an illness. Some examples of therapy subjects include smoking abstinence, safe sex practices, and folic acid supplement pre-pregnancy advice.


Getting a routine health check-up will not save you a lot of money, but it can be beneficial to keeping you in good health. Early diagnoses can even save somebody’s life in some cases, and the importance of it should not be underestimated. In addition, a health check-up provides the doctor with all the vital information which put in an excellent position to advise changes or modifications in your lifestyle to remain healthy.
