Knowing your health numbers isn’t just about getting to your goal weight—it’s a sign of your future health. Health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol may be prevented with a little preparation. While your body is super resilient in your 20s and even pretty well into your 30s, it can slow down as you age.
No one wants to spend money on health care when you don’t have to. With work, intramural kickball, school and that party for Etsy sellers, you don’t have the time to spend going to the doctor when you’re not sick. But, in fact, did you know that preventive services typically are covered by your health plan at no out-of-pocket cost to you when you visit a clinic or see a doctor in your health plan’s network? Check out our Provider Finder tool to compare docs and find a PCP in your network.
The good news is, you have all the power to monitor your health now and get it in check. Here are some key numbers to keep track of – trust me, your future self will thank you!
Put your health first and make an appointment today with a primary care physician to have your numbers checked. Add them in your phone for easy access and refer to them each time you are tested.
