10 Medical Tests You Should Have Every Year

Updated on 18 August 2022

Lifestyles are changing; habits and constant stress are affecting health in a drastic way. We all know how important routine health check-ups are, especially if you are 30+, but we still ignore them. It’s time to take charge of your own health. Regular health exams and tests can help you find the problem before even they start and treat them in time.

Ten Medical Tests You Should Do Every Year

Take some time and read the below list of important checks that you must get done annually or as per your doctor's advise,

1. Blood Pressure:

Have your blood pressure tested every year especially if you are above 30 and have a family history of high blood pressure?

2. Electrocardiogram:

Commonly known as ECG, is a non-invasive and painless medical test that helps in determining cardiac (heart) abnormalities. This is done by measuring the electrical activity generated by the heart as it contracts.

3. Obesity Test:

In adults, being overweight and obese is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes (high blood sugar), high blood pressure, certain cancers, and other chronic conditions. Book your Obesity check-up that includes tests like BMI (Body Mass Index), heart rate, blood pressure, Diabetic, Heart & Renal Evaluation and Whole Body Fat Analysis.

4. Cardiac Profile:

Controlling your cholesterol can add years to your life. Our lifestyle, hereditary flows and unhealthy eating practices can increase the risk of having high cholesterol or other heart issues. One must get an essential cardiac evaluation every year to prevent the cardiac problem.

5. Blood Sugar:

Untreated or ignored diabetes can destroy your health and have severe effects like heart disease, kidney failure and blindness. Diabetic screening tests including FBS, PPBS, HBA1C, SGPT, Urine Routine and ECG must be conducted every 6 months (especially if you have a family history of diabetes) to help detect and control diabetes.

6. Mammogram (For Women):

A mammogram helps detect any early signs of Breast Cancer and must be included as part of routine tests if you are above 30 years of age. Your doctor can tell you how often you should repeat this test.

7. Looking for Moles:

Everybody loves their skin, but you should also check for any unusual spots or new skin growths. These moles or unusual spots can be signs of early skin cancer and if detected in time, can be life-saving.

8. Check your Immunizations:

Contrary to popular belief that only children need immunizations, people above 50 years of age should also get a flu shot every year. Even otherwise healthy individuals need a booster shot of Tetanus every 10 years. So be sure to ask your doctor for any immunizations that you might need.

9. Protect your eyes:

Your eyes are a vital part of your body but are often taken for granted. Spectacles or not, one should get their eye test done annually. Through these check-ups, your eye doctor can observe and evaluate the health and condition of the blood vessels in your retina, which are good predictors of the health of blood vessels throughout your body.

10. Oral Check-up:

You should have a regular dental visit at least twice a year or as recommended by your dental professional. A regular dental check-up is important to keep your teeth and gums healthy. They help detect cavities, check for plaque and tartar, gum diseases and your overall dental health status.
