Health care is vital and necessary, especially since most people avoid visiting a doctor or ignoring the symptoms most of the time.
Dr. Sarah Jarvis, Patient Information Clinical Expert, has taken part in self-employed home health examinations:
1. Check for urine and faeces
The color and consistency of urine and faeces can indicate many health problems. "If the color of the urine is too dark, it indicates that you are suffering from dehydration, and the presence of blood in the urine may be a sign of early bladder cancer," she said.
Color and consistency may vary depending on several factors, such as nutrition, digestive health and basic illness.
A slight change can be observed every day, but the sharp changes in the bowel movement are signs of red intestinal cancer, so consult a doctor.
She explained that a healthy faeces is brown and may turn green if you eat a lot of vegetables and may turn red after beetroot food.
If the color of the stool is dark red or black, it may be a sign of internal bleeding, which should be visited by a doctor as soon as possible.
2 – Touch your fingers
This is a very easy task, but you will be surprised at how many people can not touch their fingers. If you are one of these people, this can be a sign of heart disease.
3 – Jump in place
This procedure helps you to know how much fat your body vibrates, indicating weight gain, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease and 11 different cancers.
4 – Stand and sit and then stand again
"Try to sit and stand several times in 30 seconds to measure leg strength and strength, and if you are 60 you should be able to do it at least 12 times," says Sarah.
Failure to stand and sit several times in a row may indicate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which causes breathing difficulties.
5 – compare the ankles
When we think of varicose veins, we often look for thick purple veins. But there is the so-called varicose eczema, a slight change in skin color. Sarah suggests comparing the ankle color to avoid the onset of chronic ulceration on the legs.
6. Looking at a solid and straight surface
This test can tell you that there are eye problems. The curvature vision refers to age-related macular degeneration.
7. Road kissing
Parents can use this screening to check if their children have meningitis. If the child suffers from fever and pain, ask him to try to kiss his knees.
"If a child is able to do this, he is unlikely to have meningitis," she said.
It should be noted that meningitis occurs in the lining of the brain and moves from the head to the back of the spine.
8. Check for heart palpitations
Do not look at serious heart palpitations that may indicate that the atrial fibrillation is shining, thereby increasing the chance of stroke.
9 – strengthening your fingers
Damage to the blood vessels leads to high blood sugar and may damage the kidneys or eyes or damage the nerves.
So ask someone to stick or touch your fingers, and if you do not feel it, you suffer from nerve damage.
