Essential Checkups to Have When You Hit Past 30 Years Old

Multiple health issues allegedly appear right after you graduate from university education. A lot of the working class folks experience an extreme change in the environment immediately right after graduating. Because of the work culture in many fields, new graduates are subjected to almost inhumane stress.


Many of those new to their respective fields are experiencing stress levels more than they have expected from past university work. For example, nursing graduates opt to leave their job because of job stress, salary satisfaction, and archaic treatment from senior nurses. Aside from the pressure to do well, these fresh graduate nurses have low incomes and concise hours.

It is not uncommon to continue finding one’s pursuit in life right after getting an education. However, most people tend to forget about themselves when they go into their thirties. Most doctors have previously recommended that people have annual checkups when they reach the forty-year-old mark. Health screening programs are immediately available for most companies when their managers go forty-plus. For females, it starts at fifty. Any delay in these checkups may cause easily detectable diseases to be screened and cured early on.

Most people live their lives for their jobs. Sometimes, they tend to forget the most crucial element of labor: the human body, because they have so much on their plates. What parts of your body should you look out for off the bat?

The Skin

The skin is the most exposed part of your body. It is also the most obvious signal of your body experiencing some form of the disease. Because the skin covers all your other organs, it can sense if what’s underneath is undergoing some form of repair or damage. The skin also is the first thing that ages.

One of the first things people notice is the state of a person’s skin. Many middle-aged people pay a lot of money to plump up the condition of their skin. All sorts of invasive treatments like dermabrasion, fractional laser skin resurfacing, chemical peeling, and dermal fillers are but a few of the known ones popular among middle-aged men and women. They all try to cater to the preferences of the person. You better hydrate yourself all the time to replenish the nutrients your skin needs.

The Teeth

Your set of teeth is one of the first things to go. They are one of the first things people notice whenever they see a person. They are one of the most overworked and overused body parts. Because of the extreme stress it undergoes and the general lack of care by most people, teeth are the first things that usually decay into adulthood.

Sure, your teeth may be healthy now in your twenties. But by the time you step in your thirties, its mileage might have affected it for the worse. Continuous drinking of colored drinks, sugary drinks, and other sources of tooth decay are ever-present in this capitalist society.

Never taking your teeth for granted is one of the most significant marks of adulthood. Most people tend to ignore it unless their teeth encounter an emergency. Regularly visiting your dentist is not just random advice dentists suggest. By ensuring you always maintain your set of teeth deep into your senior years, you will support overall good digestive health.

The Thyroid

The thyroid is a sneaky human body part that people tend to overlook. The primary function of the thyroid is that it regulates the hundreds of body functions involved in the metabolism and development of our bodies. It controls the heart, muscle, digestion, and bone functions. It is one of the most underrated body parts there is.

Sadly, most tend to overlook this gland. Treatment for diseases of the thyroid may come too late if not detected early. As the levels of stress ramps up for those who are just new to the working class, more hormones are released to manage the abrupt stress your body is suddenly experiencing. Taking care of your thyroid ensures you wouldn’t have to spend on treatments on Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, goiter, Grave’s disease, and hyper and hypothyroidism. Most of the conditions are easily preventable if detected early.

The Genitals

The genitals are one of the most significant signs of internal bodily distress. Because of the liberal freedom that the younger generation has incorporated in their micro-culture regarding physical intimacy, men’s and women’s genitals are usually very exposed to all sorts of sexually transmitted diseases. Having them monitored and checked every once in a while is a must in your life post-college. Many haphazardly enter into liberated relationships. Be safe and get yourself tested every once in a while.

With these in mind, you will know which you should focus on. Age comes with many things, so remember to care for your health.
