Taking Control of Your Health

Prevent serious health problems with home medical checks

Diabetics and other people with severe chronic conditions are no strangers to monitoring their situation with medical equipment while away from the doctors office, but a healthy person might never think of giving themselves a quick exam to make sure there’s no cause for concern. Truth is that everyone should be aware of potential problems and there are plenty of ways to monitor your health and catch the early warning signs of serious problems even without medical equipment.

Checking blood pressure at home
With the right medical equipment these days it's relatively easy to keep check on your vitals at home, such as blood pressure, heart beat, and blood sugar levels.

Blood Pressure

Recent studies have linked high blood pressure to canned goods, salt, sugar, and more. It’s a common problem that affects millions of people all over the world and can lead to sever circulatory and heart problems if left untreated. The best way to know if you should be concerned about blood pressure is by taking yours and comparing the results to what is normal and expected for an adult of your age.

James, at Medsurgequip, medical equipment suppliers says “taking your blood pressure at home is easy and requires medical equipment that is easy to acquire and keep around the house like a blood pressure cuff or digital monitor. You can keep track of your BP very easily and affordably these days.”

In order to take your blood pressure, start by finding a calm place and trying to relax. Stress can have a huge impact on getting an accurate reading, so finding somewhere where you feel comfortable is crucial. Then lay your left arm palm up on a table, then wrap the cuff around tight. Your systolic reading is the number on the gauge when the cuff is fully inflated, and your diastolic pressure is the reading you get when the cuff has deflated.

Checking blood sugar levels
If you are a diabetic, you know the vital importance of monitoring your bloog sugar levels
to keep your diabetes in check.

Your Skin

An incredibly simple, cursory examination that you can give yourself at home is to keep an eye on your skin. The skin is extremely susceptible to forms of skin cancer like melanoma, which can be caused by simple everyday exposure to the sun. Recent studies have suggested that young people might be more at risk than adults, which should give you reason to keep an eye on your kids as well as yourself.

Almost all cases of melanoma can be treated easily if they are caught early. Take the time to learn where the moles are on your body, and watch them for signs of discoloration or growth. Simply paying attention to how your skin should look and how it actually looks is the easiest way to detect if you or a loved one have a problem developing and need the help of a doctor.

Working with Your Doctor

Of course, your doctor has the highly sophisticated tools to make a proper diagnosis and advise you on treatment. And, just because you haven’t found a problem in either of these areas does not mean that you should skip out on your regular check-ups. Visit the doctor frequently, and pay attention to the simple things that you can while you are at home because prevention is always the best medicine.
