  • Often times, people make a lot of excuses for deciding not to go to their doctor. Just a few excuses include that they’re too young to worry about it, they don’t have time and/or they already feel healthy. These are all bad justifications for not going as research goes that even if you feel healthy, regular check-ups saves lives, and you may not be as healthy as you think.
  • As an example: According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease claims more than 600,000 lives each year in the United States, accounting for more than 1 in 4 deaths. This is brought up in the context of getting regular check-ups for a very simple reason. A couple major risk factors of heart disease are high blood pressure and cholesterol.

  • In a recent study done by Kaiser Permanente specifically on men, it was found that the men who were most sedentary but also exercised the most still were 1.2 times as likely to develop heart failure as those who exercised at a similar level but sat substantially less. While the study was specific to men, they noted that the results were likely transferrable to women as well. This issue is most often seen with office workers since it is common to be sitting for eight hours or more. To help curb this issue, it was recommended that for every hour at your desk, you should be walking around for at least 10 minutes.
  • There are many more maladies to be concerned about than just heart disease, but it makes an excellent example for why going to your doctor can help detect if you have warning signs. For this issue, and many others, your physician will likely be able to give you ways to perturb the issue and get you back on track to a healthier life.
