Haryana - Faridabad Health Profile
Your health indicates the status of your well-being, that has direct implications not only on the quality of life but also indirectly on the country's economy. Haryana produces the largest number of doctors in the developing world, yet accessibility to healthcare for all, remains distant. Women's health care is grossly neglected. A minimum of three checkups during pregnancy remains unavailable for half of all pregnant women in the state. Faridabad, the industrial capital of Haryana also faces the same issue of accessibility of healthcare to all despite having some of the major hospitals like AIMS, Fortis Escorts, Metro Heart Institute, QRG Central Hospital & Research Centre.
Importance of Health Checkups for all
The importance of regular health checkups for good health, cannot be emphasized enough to understand the serious implications of health problems if HCPs are ignored. Periodic Health examination is a must for everyone, for adults over 18 years doctors recommend performing HCP every five years until age 40 and periodically 1- 3 years for those above 40 years of age and is dependent on the individual health profile and those taking prescription medicines.

The tests you need depend on your age, health, gender, and your risk factors. Risk factors might include family history, such as having a close relative with cancer, and lifestyle issues, such as smoking. Cholesterol screening, for example, is recommended for people who have a family history of early coronary artery disease.
If you are at risk for a disease, you and your doctor will decide whether you should be tested for it. Discuss the testing, the disease, the risks and benefits of the testing, and what action you are willing to take if you have the condition. For example, if your doctor believes you are at risk for osteoporosis, the things to think about before testing include your age, whether others in your family have had osteoporosis, whether you are a postmenopausal woman, and your willingness to take medicine or make lifestyle changes if you test positive for this condition.
