Handy checklist of topics and screenings for discussing with your doctor at your annual checkup
by Robert Bonakdar, Integrative Medicine Specialist
Keep on top of your recommended health screenings and be sure to discuss the following with your physician at your next annual checkup:
Do you wake feeling refreshed or fatigued? Don’t let an undiagnosed sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea or insomnia, compromise your well-being.
Everyone experiences stress; it’s how you manage it that affects your health. Ask your doctor about the benefi ts of yoga and meditation and other ways to minimize stress.
Talk to your doctor about depression, irritability, relationship issues and anything else that is getting in the way of your happiness.
