Why is Cholesterol and Diabetes Screening Important?
Both high cholesterol and diabetes are silent adversaries that gradually damage the body from within.
High Cholesterol: Elevated cholesterol levels lead to the formation of plaque in the arteries, making them narrow and less flexible. This means less blood and oxygen reach your vital organs, increasing the risk of heart disease, strokes, and peripheral artery disease.
Diabetes: Chronic high blood sugar damages the blood vessels and nerves that control the heart. Over time, diabetes can lead to heart disease, kidney disease, and even vision loss.
By detecting these conditions early, our health check-ups enable timely interventions, ensuring a better quality of life and potentially preventing the devastating complications associated with these conditions.
