Every year take time to have your health checked by your GP! Try to do this at the same time every year. Combine your heart health check along with a regular PAP smear test, breast examination and as you get older consider other follow-ups such as a bone density scan.
If you are diabetic, have high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol, it is very important to have an understanding about your condition. You can keep it under control by:
Adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Visiting your GP regularly and get to know your numbers.
Following the management protocol suggested by your doctor.
