A health check is a good idea for anyone who is 35 or older, even if they are in normal health. In today's age, lifestyle factors play a major role in causing health issues. Cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure are just a few common problems which could begin very early in life, without one being aware at all. It is important that problems, if any, be detected well in advance so that preventive or corrective steps can be initiated. These steps need not necessarily be medical, they could be just lifestyle or dietary changes.
