Practice Preventative Care – Take care of yourself by eating right, exercising, and practicing self care. Get regular checkups and listen to what your doctor says. Don’t wait until you get sick to make a visit to a doctor.
Take Advantage of Free Screenings in Your Area – Check your local area for free screenings! This can include screenings for blood pressure, body mass index, cholesterol, glucose, and more. These screenings may be able to spot signs of more serious conditions like heart disease or diabetes.
Keep Copies of Health Records – Designate an area in your home for your health records. These records may come in handy for future doctor’s visits. For example, I had a health scare last March and needed treatment during a cross country move. I kept all of my health records on hand and took them with me to each doctor’s visit in case they needed them. Keeping track of your records is important because your records can show you what services or treatments you’ve in the past that you may not need for a while.
Choose the Right Type of Care – Determine what type of care that you need. If your condition is not life threatening or an emergency, skip the ER and call your primary doctor to see if there are any appointments available. If there are not any appointments available, consider going to an urgent care facility to get a proper diagnosis and treatment.
