As well we know, there are lots of diseases that tend to occur in elderly people.
For instances, your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and colorectal cancer increases as you get older. For this reason, it’s not bad idea to ask your doctor whether there are screening tests you need to take!
A screening test is intended to help identity a certain health problem as earlier as possible so thus the problem can be treated immediately before it gets worse at advanced stage.
Blood tests to measure blood sugar and cholesterol, and blood pressure checks are some examples of common screening tests.
