A men’s health check is a great thing to do regardless of your age. As well as giving you an idea of your overall health, it can also tell you whether you’re at higher risk of getting certain health problems. This can include anything from heart disease and diabetes to kidney disease or suffering a stroke.
Our well man health screenings provide an excellent opportunity to establish base levels of many important health markers. These can then be actively monitored for changes so you can keep a close eye on your health and reduce your risk of getting certain conditions.
If you don’t have heart disease, kidney disease, have never had a stroke or don’t have any known diseases, it’s recommended that men aged 40+ have a health check every five years. You can of course have them before the age of 40 if you wish.
