What health screening tests should you have?
Cholesterol Testing and the Lipid Panel
Cardiovascular Disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming the lives of nearly one million Americans every year. Many people are unaware that, to a large extent, the disease is both modifiable and preventable. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains a leading cause of premature death and disability in most industrialized countries. There is a wealth of available evidence to suggest that intervention can reduce the burden of CVD (heart attack and stroke) and the enormous economic and human costs with which it is associated.45% of heart attacks occur in people under the age of 65. Males account for 47% of all deaths from cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is often under-diagnosed and under-treated in women. Knowing your cholesterol levels is an essential part of understanding your own risk for heart disease.
The American Heart Association recommends that everyone over age 20 get a cholesterol test. Having high total cholesterol, high bad cholesterol, or low good cholesterol places you at higher than average risk for heart disease. Knowing about high cholesterol is the first step toward lowering it, which reduces your risk.
Diabetes Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the United States in 2006. Nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes, and another 54 million are estimated to have pre diabetes,increasing their risk for diabetes. Over 200,000 individuals die each year of related complications. Millions of people have diabetes and do not know it. However, with early detection and treatment the more likely it is that the serious health consequences of diabetes can be prevented or delayed. This benefit can help improve the quality of life by preventing a more severe condition that can occur without proper treatment from diagnostic screenings when health can be dramatically improved and costly complications avoided.
Georgia On-Site Lab Testing, Inc. has identified three major problems faced by clients today. Currently it is estimated that 80% of employers utilize HRA (Health Risk Assessment) questionnaire to help identify health risks.Health screenings can achieve early detection by exposing illnesses and diseases long before symptoms
This is the third most common cancer in the United States. Researchers analyzed U.S. National Cancer Institute data from 1975 through 2010 and found that the overall colon cancer rate for Americans fell by about 1 percent each year during that time, with a similar drop seen in men and women.The study also predicts that by 2020 and 2030, colon cancer rates are expected to jump by about 38 percent and 90 percent, respectively, among people aged 20 to 34, but fall by about 23 percent and 41 percent, respectively, among people older than 50.“The increasing incidence of [colon cancer] among young adults is concerning and highlights the need to investigate potential causes and external influences such as lack of screening and behavioral factors,” wrote a team led by Dr. Christina Bailey, of University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
