As the age old saying goes, 'prevention is better than cure'. As we get older the likely hood of running into trouble starts to become that much more probable. One might argue, 'but I live a healthy life', and whilst that might be true, there is no knowing what is actually going on inside you.
You might be an active runner, or perhaps a football enthusiast. Perhaps you are body builder and in your quest for size have resorted to anabolic steroids. However you might look on the outside is no indication of how you might be looking on the inside and it is for this reason that we encourage everyone, no matter your age, to have regular health checkups. Know what is happening inside you before it creeps upon you like a bad stench that does want to leave.
Our team of Pharmacists and Technicians at Pearl Chemist Group have been trained to provide comprehensive health checks for blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol.
Those aged 40 and over should ideally be looking at annual checkups.
