At Central Florida Total Healthcare we’re committed to our patient’s care, for this reason, we want to remind you of the importance of prevention.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 60% of annual deaths are due to non-communicable diseases, because they do not present immediate symptoms, which makes it difficult to recognize them in time to treat them. Some examples are acute heart attacks, brain complications, diabetes, asthma, cancer, among others.
These diseases can be treated or avoided if we implement small actions that contribute to improving our health, for example:
Attend your medical check-ups regularly.
Medical checkups are very important because they help you check your health and detect diseases that do not have symptoms and are not easy to identify. Don’t wait until you have symptoms, you must get used to taking care of yourself by going for regular check-ups.
Be physically active and maintain a balanced diet.
According to the BBC, only 27.5% of people are routinely physically active. It is important that you do your favorite physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day, and that you accompany this activity with a rich and balanced diet that meets your protein, fat, and carbohydrate requirements.
Talk to your physician
By having a close relationship with your doctor, he or she will be able to know if you’re in good health, and in case you are at risk at any time, they can let you know in time to take the necessary measures. Also, doctors will be able to recommend what is best for you by following your process.
Remember that prevention is not about curing diseases, but about keeping us healthy and vital. We invite you to be aware of your actions so you can enjoy the health you deserve.
