Which health check up package should you choose?
All 30 year olds do not have the same health and lifestyle risks. Neither do all senior citizens. Still, the health check majority of labs and hospitals in India only offer a limited number of packages. so if, you are a diabetic and a smoker and there is history of colon cancer in your family, but you are not yet 40, which package would you go for?
It is not a question you should be expected to answer! It should be the job of a doctor of health care personnel, who can do your risk profiling well. But in most instances, people see the doctor AFTER they have already had a check up.
Worst still, if the reports of the tests that YOU chose, are normal, you may skip seeing a doctor altogether. this could be a false sense of security and you may be losing out on a window of opportunity to prevent lifestyle diseases!
Would a general physician design a correct health check up package for you?
Chances are he/she won’t. As medicine is currently practiced in India, we don’t have family physicians, who know about common diseases of all specialties and their risk factors. So the internal medicine specialist or physician will probably miss out on screening for cancers, eye disease etc. Because he does not deal with them even during training period. The specialists are too full of curative medicine work. Meaning they are busy treating those who already have a disease
