Checkups

What health checkups do women 65+ require?

In Women Over 60 the JH elaborate on:

“The complete range of medical checks and screening procedures required throughout life will vary for every person, depending on individual risks, medical background and family history. Talk to your doctor about what tests you need to maintain your health”.3

Health Care Provider

If I feel fine do, I still need to see my health care provider regularly?

Even if you feel fine, it may be in your best interest to choose to see your health care provider regularly.

In Health Screenings for Women Over Age 65: Information the (United States) MedlinePlus elaborate on:

“Even if you feel fine, you should still see your provider for regular checkups. These visits can help you avoid problems in the future. For example, the only way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked regularly. High blood sugar and high cholesterol levels also may not have any symptoms in the early stages. A simple blood test can check for these conditions”.4
