I recently heard an Indian women in early sixties ..died ..she had prolonged stomach ache ....and finally decided to have to have checkup thoroughly BUT it was too late...the cancer had spread all over her body and her days were numbered ...she was moving from one hospital to another ...but nothing could help they said its too late!!..the end came just two days back...and it was very sad..everybody was repenting...but it was too late!
..such carelessness for health ? self medications another health hazard,not visiting doctor or any annual checkups..why? ignoring eye exam or dental ..is nothing but inviting problems in future!
"prevention is better then cure"...
There is always a reason ...that they send letters at home when annual checkups are due! reminders on phone too ,to make an appointment...all annual checkups are covered by major insurances..even if its not, insurance can be purchased or annual checkups can be done by paying upfront ...health is more important then money..after all we earn for what? its for good and healthy life!
The maintenance also includes all this with gyms and fashion...The idea of check-ups usually doesn't sync with most of the people ...when we talk of doctor's..most of the people say..in olden days no check -ups were there and people still lived BUT then think life expectancy was not more then sixty or so....and people in early forties or thirties had many health problems....
In today world where we have Internet and so much awareness ,why ignorance of health??
