Blood Tests you Cannot Ignore After 50

As the body grows older, it becomes all the more imperative to maintain good health. Although everyone recommends good food and workouts to maintain good health, you must not ignore taking annual blood tests and physical screening, especially once you have touched 50 years of age.

While most of us hesitate in seeing the doctor regularly, a simple visit, a simple blood test, a simple screening, can ward off many diseases before they hit your body. Here are a few simple, but very important blood tests that you must take at least once every year once you turn 50 to maintain optimum health.

  • Blood sugar: High level of blood sugar is a symptom of diabetes, which is known to play havoc on all body parts.
  • Cholesterol profile: High cholesterol can increase the risk of a heart attack.
  • Colonoscopy: A colon cancer screening, it is most frequently recommended and a timely detection of any abnormality can save you money and trouble both.
  • Complete blood count: The most common blood test, this one measures the size, number, and shape of various types of cells in your body.
  • Mammogram: Ideal to detect breast cancer at an early stage.
  • Pelvic exam & Pap Smear: A must-take test for women, when combined with a human papillomavirus (HPV) can save you from cervical cancer.
  • Thyroid function: Underactive active thyroid is a common problem with women over 50 years of age. A thyroid blood test includes measurement of the most essential T3, T4 and TSH levels that can determine the course of care you need.
