Harmful habits, poor nutrition, psychological and environmental factors have negative effects on health, which is an important concept affecting human life. Diseases can occur as a result of negative health effects. Early treatment of diseases is important for restoring health. Diseases need to be diagnosed early so that treatment can be started early.
What is Early Diagnosis and What Does It Mean?
Many routines in your daily life, from social life to work life, are disrupted due to illness. Early diagnosis of diseases is important in terms of preventing negativities that may affect the individual’s life. Diseases are often detected after they have already started to show symptoms. Detecting the disease before clinical signs and symptoms appear is called early diagnosis. Early diagnosis is a period when the symptoms that bother the person have not yet developed, but the presence of the disease is detected. With the early diagnosis of diseases, it becomes more likely that the person will regain his health in a short time with early intervention.
The Role of Early Diagnosis in Major Diseases
For many diseases, early diagnosis is important. For example, diabetes and hypertension are major health problems that negatively affect human life. Early diagnosis of these diseases is very important for the course of treatment. In diseases where treatment is initiated in the early period, recovery is shorter and the person can continue his/her routine work.
Early Diagnosis in Diabetes
Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar and is produced by the pancreas.
Diabetes, also commonly known as diabetes, occurs when the body has problems producing insulin or is unable to use the existing insulin hormone. As a result, blood sugar levels increase. Diabetes is a chronic health problem that negatively affects human life. There are basically four types of diabetes and they are as follows:
Type 1 Diabetes: Diabetes that is dependent on insulin.
Type 2 Diabetes: Diabetes that is not dependent on insulin.
Gestational Diabetes: Diabetes that occurs during pregnancy.
Diabetes due to specific causes: Diabetes that may occur due to causes such as medications and genetic factors.
Diabetes can cause many health problems if not controlled. The most important of these is uncontrolled weight gain. Unhealthy weight gain can lead to serious health problems such as obesity. Weight gain also negatively affects cardiovascular health. People with diabetes have a harder time managing their weight than people without the disease.
Going to regular hospital check-ups and undergoing the required tests are important in the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. As a result of early diagnosis of diabetes, treatment can be started early. In this way, the disease can be controlled and thus its negative impact on life can be prevented.
Early Diagnosis in Blood Pressure Disease
The heart, which is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body, is a very important organ for human life.
The pressure the heart exerts on the blood vessels as it pumps blood around the body is called blood pressure. Hypertension occurs when blood pressure is higher than normal. Hypertension, also popularly known as blood pressure disease, is a chronic disease that negatively affects human life. High blood pressure can damage blood vessels and internal organs. In addition, if blood pressure disease is not treated, various health problems such as cerebral hemorrhage, stroke, vision loss, heart failure, heart attack and kidney failure may occur. As a result of early diagnosis of blood pressure disease, treatment is started early and the emergence of blood pressure-related diseases is prevented.
Paying attention to a healthy lifestyle and regular hospital check-ups are effective in preventing diseases. It is important for human life that diseases in the body are diagnosed without symptoms. Routine hospital check-ups are effective in maintaining and improving health. You can also contribute to the recovery period by taking steps to prevent the occurrence of diseases or to ensure that the existing disease is diagnosed at an early stage by going to routine hospital checks and having the tests recommended by the doctor.
