What is preventive care?

About 60% of Americans have at least one chronic condition today and many of those diseases are preventable ones like diabetes.

Preventive care is medical care that emphasizes illness and disease prevention. It’s always far better to prevent chronic conditions rather than treating them for the rest of your life, and preventive care can help you do exactly that.

What does preventive care involve?

Preventive care involves comprehensive annual physicals for most patients, however, if you already have one or more chronic conditions you might need exams biannually instead. The Zeam Medical Group team customizes your comprehensive annual physical based on many factors, including your age, sex, medical history, and disease risk factors.

Routine screenings are an important part of your comprehensive annual physical because they identify negative health patterns and signs early. Some of the main routine screenings check for: 

  • Weight issues
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood sugar (diabetes)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Skin cancer
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

The team recommends routine screening tests based on your specific situation. For example, women normally need mammograms every two years starting from age 50, but you could need to start as early as age 40 based on your health history and risk factors. 

In addition to routine screenings, your preventive care includes vaccinations that prevent many communicable diseases. All children and adults need flu vaccinations once a year, and there are a number of other vaccinations that you might need at different stages of life. 

What are the advantages of preventive care?

Preventive care isn’t only about disease prevention: At Zeam Medical Group, it’s about helping you to be healthier and happier.
