Preventive care is the key to living free of disease and illness. By taking the healthcare measures for prevention you save yourself from contracting preventable diseases, such as heart disease, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. Preventative care starts with a comprehensive wellness exam, which should be conducted annually for healthy adults. Your exam results will determine the best route of preventive care to help you achieve optimal health and wellness.
It is most effective to identify symptoms and conditions early on that later advance to chronic diseases. For example, if you are suffering from weight gain, water retention, blurred vision, and increased urination these are signs you are pre-diabetic. Your diabetes can be reversed during this stage with proper diagnosis. By taking advantage of health prevention services you protect yourself from being susceptible to life-threatening illnesses.
The most common types of disease that can be prevented are chronic diseases. These include diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and cancer. Part of the prevention process involves detecting early signs of disease. By detecting diseases in their onset you stand a far greater chance of surviving and overcoming these medical problems. Furthermore you are able to save money by avoiding having to treat chronic diseases for years to come. Comprehensive medical exams and integrated approaches allow Dr. De Silva to detect diseases early on and help you avoid adverse medical problems.
