Why do you need a periodic medical checkup and what are the advantages?

A medical checkup provides an opportunity to find risk factors or physical changes, which may indicate the presence of chronic diseases at an early stage, and in the absence of diseases there is also the chance to cope with the findings and to learn and practice how to maintain a healthy life-style.
Early findings of diabetes, hypertension, low anemia value, high hyperlipidemia, liver disease, kidney disease and so on, which examinees cannot recognize, are good examples of medical checkup advantages. The early detection of diseases assists greatly in their proper treatment, and the Health Promotion Center provides various medical information, dietary cures and types of exercise in consultation with the specialists.
