3 health screening tests you may have never heard of but should know

Dr Peter Barkett

We all want good health; we even toast to it. But how do we know what to do to ensure that good health? Some things seem obvious, like eating a healthy diet, getting quality sleep and exercising regularly. Other times in the face of technical information it is tempting to throw our hands in the air and say, “I just don’t know.” That’s often the case with three screening tests that many patients aren’t aware of. But knowing about them could change your life.

Often if we can identify a health issue earlier, there is a greater chance for avoiding, resolving, or better managing the condition. Health screenings can find issues even if you aren’t having symptoms, so they make sense to keep your good health, particularly if you have associated risks. Read on and talk to your health care provider if you think you are a candidate for these checks.
