Simpson Financial Group  Preparing for life’s uncertainties

doctor and patient talkingTake a look at your family’s history. Do you worry that you may develop a health complication because someone in your family has in the past? It’s not uncommon. In fact, hereditary factors play a role in nearly all major diseases and illnesses today.

As a result, many health insurance plans offer extensive coverage for screenings for such conditions. If you believe that you are at a high risk for disease as a result of genetic makeup, talk to your doctor about these concerns so that he or she can screen for them whenever possible.

What Conditions Should Be Screened For?

From rare diseases to the most common, if you believe that there is any level of risk possible for your development of a condition, alert your doctor. Your doctor will then work to screen and monitor for those conditions. Some of the most common conditions that you should be screened for if you have a family history may include the following:

  • Pregnancy-related health conditions, including gestational diabetes, birth defects and pregnancy loss
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
  • Arthritis
  • Blood clots and related disorders
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Strokes
  • Mental health conditions including depression
  • Diabetes, both type I and type II
  • Heart disease
  • Asthma and breathing disorders

If you are unsure what type of risks are present in your family, ask questions. Most importantly, talk to your parents and grandparents about their health ailments. Of course, other factors can play a role in your development or non-development of conditions. This includes your weight, your overall health, your race and your age. Some conditions are also more common in men or women.

The good news is that your health insurance can provide you with a wide range of screening options. If you and your doctor determine you may be a high risk for any of these health concerns, or others, routine screenings can help to minimize those risks through preventative care and lifestyle changes. Take the time to learn as much as you can about your family’s health and let your doctor help you to keep your health at front of mind.
