What is a checkup?
A checkup aims to assess your body’s function and structure. A personal
and family history of symptoms and previous diseases, a thorough
clinical examination performed by an experienced physician, and a set of
laboratory tests and additional examinations, all enable the assessment
of your current state of health. Why is this important? A checkup
provides (1) a baseline examination in healthy individuals, (2) insights
into your risk of acquiring a variety of diseases in the future and (3)
determines the nature and significance of symptoms for people with
suspected health problems.
