Prevention is better than cure. Are you monitoring your blood sugar level and other info such as blood pressure about your body regularly? It is a good practice to keep your body healthy. There are also devices to check them at home.

There are also many other things which should be at a correct level in the body such as iron, etc. So, it is important to visit a doctor periodically (or) once in a while.

Dan, I do monitor my health, although not in the usual ways. In my laboratory career doing cancer tests, I contracted multiple chemical sensitivities from working with so many dangerous chemicals...

Holistic methods finally did help me when conventional medicine failed, so now those are how I keep track of what is going on with my body, ongoing! :)

Virginia, i have known people that had ill effects from working in labs with chemical exposure. One developed a severe egg allergy (from vaccine cultures), and the other died of cancer, probably from exposure to organic solvents. She was only in her late 20s!  :'(

Yes Sister Tink it is so, one of my (many) life adventures...and back in the 1980's (as you may already know), this condition was dismissed by the medical profession as a form of hypochondria - even as people were dying...:(

I get physicals from my Doctor twice a year with all the blood work and such. My blood pressure is a touch high but he said it's not to worry and I don't have to take any meds for it. It's down some now as I've been exercising more and working a lot around my new house.

I was told to take some extra vitamins and minerals , like Zinc, magnesium and iron. Every day! Always take vitamin C daily anyways.

Rooster, I am delighted to hear of your good health, and also your commitment to maintain your health. The world needs every single one of us, and you yourself are a precious treasure much needed here in the world of time and space!

Once a year, at regular checkups.

Otherwise, only if I'm not feeling well, which happens maybe once every few years.

yay Tink! <3
