Prevention is health. It’s time to take care of yourself!
At Hm Hospitales, specifically at our Hm Sanchinarro Hospital, we are aware of the need to carry out periodic health check-ups for the prevention and monitoring of possible diseases and we are equally aware of the difficulty that people may have in getting all the necessary tests done at the same time.
Prevention is the best way to ensure good and lasting health. There are numerous diseases where early detection increases the chances of a cure.
Dr. Niko Mihic, Director of the Hm Hospitales Personalized Early Prevention Unit offers some insightful tips and suggestions regarding health prevention.
From what age is it advisable to have a check-up? There is no specific age but checks and revisions should start from around 40 onwards, although if you have family history of specific deseases, you start revisions earlier . You should also have periodical reveiws every two years.
Is lifestyle a factor to take into account? Obviously lifestyle and how much stress we are under conditions how much we dedicate to preventative healthcare and so affects our overall health. It is essential that we dedicate enough time to sport, nutrition, leisure time and generally taking care of ourselves.

The Unit has the most advanced medical technology and a group of specialists who are experts in the interpretation of the results obtained and are highly recognized among the medical community.
