Preventive Health Management Programme
Life does not always offer us a second chance and there is no U turn in life. Therefore, “Prevention is better than cure” and not just better, but it is also cheaper. We all do an AMC for our cars, computers and air conditioners, but we neglect the most complex machinery. Our Body!! We are in the era of Preventive Medicine where the new health mantra is
“Why cure, when you can prevent”
The world is moving towards longevity, high stress, affluence and sedentary lifestyle which form the backbone for Lifestyle Diseases commonly afflicting our society. These include conditions related to diabetes, heart and obesity. The other two major contributors for morbidity in today’s age are bone & joint related diseases and cancer.
Preventive Health Management Programme refers to measures taken to prevent diseases, rather than curing them or treating their symptoms. Dr Anand’s Diagnostic offers a gamut of health check up plans which include screening tests tailored to an individual’s age, health, lifestyle and family history. For example, a person with a family history of certain cancers or other diseases would begin screening at an earlier age and/or more frequently than those with no family history.
