Hypertension It is a disease that is very common among adults above the age of 40.

Diet and regular medication are important for treatment. If particularly immediate family members have hypertension, it is recommended to get your blood pressure checked at regular intervals.

According to recent researches, one out of every five-person over the age of 30 has diabetes mellitus. Fast food diet, stressful life, physical inactivity, increase of obesity are major factors for the disease to become widespread. Diabetes has several types and when diagnosed, individually prepared treatment plans should be conducted considering the metabolic status of the patient. The role of the diet is as important as medication. Carbohydrate metabolism disorder that we called insulin resistance occurs approximately 10 years before the diagnosis of diabetes. If it is not treated it progresses to diabetes insipidus and then to diabetes mellitus. If the disorder is detected within this process before the diabetes diagnosis, diabetes can be prevented with proper treatment. A person who has family members with diabetes, who has gestational diabetes, who gave birth to a baby over 4000 gr, who has obesity should get their blood sugar checked at regular intervals.
Mostly these are the problems diagnosed incidentally when individuals applied to hospitals for other reasons. An individual who gains weight even though their dietary habits are unchanged or cannot lose weight even though they are on a diet, who has complaints of fatigue, lassitude, short temper, or who has people in their family that have thyroid history should get their thyroid function tests done. Follow up and treatment of thyroid diseases become crucial in the event of pregnancy intend or during pregnancy.
