Preventive medicine aims to keep you healthy instead of waiting for you to get sick. It involves taking measures to protect yourself from preventable diseases and identifying health problems before they get too advanced.
Engaging with preventive medicine helps you avoid the pain, misery, inconvenience, and expense of ill health. You can stay fit and strong, lead a more enjoyable life, and live longer thanks to the preventive medicine services at Tru Medical Management.
Tru Medical Management offers numerous preventive medicine services, including:
At Tru Medical Management, you can undergo screening procedures to look for early signs of conditions like colorectal, prostate, and cervical cancer. Mammograms (X-rays that detect breast cancer) are available through the practice’s provider partner.
In addition to screening for cancer, Tru Medical Management runs tests that identify problems like high cholesterol, hypertension (high blood pressure), and thyroid disease. The practice’s comprehensive diabetes screening can identify prediabetes (early rises in blood sugar levels), enabling you to avoid type 2 diabetes.
Annual physicals are routine physician consultations where your provider checks your vital signs and health indicators, including heart rate, lung and heart sounds, breathing, reflexes, and blood pressure. In addition to annual checkups, Tru Medical Management offers specialized physicals such as well-woman and well-man exams.
Immunizations give your immune system harmless substances that enable it to create antibodies that destroy specific pathogens (bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms). Immunizations protect you from many diseases, including flu and COVID-19.
Key ways of engaging with preventive medicine include ensuring you attend routine exams and screenings and keeping your immunizations up to date.
Another vitally important way of preventing ill health is to improve your lifestyle. Many common diseases (including leading causes of untimely death) are due to or made worse by poor diet, excess body weight, insufficient exercise, unmanaged stress, and bad habits like smoking.
Tru Medical Management can help you deal with these problems, supporting you with expert preventive medicine programs such as smoking cessation and weight loss.
