It is important to have the health check-up of the elderly undertaken meticulously atleast once a year. To keep yourself healthy, happy and safe over the age of 60, you need to undergo simple medical tests on a routine basis.
If you are over 60 even though you seem to be hale and hearty, a basic physical exam including your height, weight and body mass index (BMI) measurement, routine blood tests, urine tests, an electro cardiogram (ECG), etc, once every year can help detect many ailments including anaemia, infections, heart ailments, respiratory ailments, kidney problems, diabetes etc.
You also need to get a routine check-up if you already have chronic illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, asthma, respiratory problems, kidney problems etc.
