Must Do Health Tests If You’re A Woman Above 50

If you are a woman above 50 years, here are some health tests you must take. Women are the backbone of the family. It becomes very difficult to perform any activity when our backbone is not in shape. Similarly, a family’s well-being is next to impossible if the woman of the house is unwell. That is why is it important to take these health tests.

  1. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)Test:

60% of Indians suffering from thyroid disorders are said to be women. If your thyroid gland doesn’t function properly, it can lead to a drastic weight gain/loss, hair fall, depression, memory loss, etc. Adequate diet, exercise, and medication are required to bring the thyroid hormone levels back to normal.  The remedial factors can be determined only based on the results of a TSH test.

  1. Vitamin D Deficiency Test:

Osteoporosis is said to affect 200 million women worldwide. It’s seen as the major cause of fractures among older women. That’s why it’s essential to keep bones healthy. This can be assured by keeping a check on the Vitamin D and calcium levels. Regular testing helps decide how much and for how long vitamin D supplements are needed.

  1. Vitamin B12 Deficiency Test:

The ability of the body to absorb vitamin B12 reduces in your 50s. Fatigue, weakness, forgetfulness, and disorientation are the primary ill effects you can suffer if you are vitamin B 12 deficient. Regular B12 deficiency testing is needed so that you can regulate your diet and supplements accordingly before any major damage.

  1. Lipid Profile Test:

Although high cholesterol is mainly triggered by obesity and an unhealthy diet, most women are at a high risk of developing high levels of LDL or bad cholesterol during their menopause phase. That is why, apart from the health tests given above, getting a lipid profile is necessary to know as to how much attention your cholesterol levels require in order to prevent heart complications.

  1. Fasting Glucose Test/ Blood Sugar Test and HbA1c Test:

As per a report in 2012, 60% of diabetics in India have never been tested for the disease due lack of awareness. But ignoring it can lead to serious problems like vision impairment, kidney issues, etc. That is why get a fasting glucose test done if you don’t have diabetes but have a family history of it or lead a physically inactive life. It’s a pre-diabetes test that helps diagnose diabetes. If you already have diabetes, then getting the blood glucose test on a regular basis is a must. Getting a HbA1c test is also helpful in getting a more precise assessment of the glucose levels present in the blood. This helps you to note your sugar levels so that you can make amends to your diet and exercise regimes accordingly.

  1. Complete Blood Count (CBC):

As per a media report, India has the highest number of anaemic women in the world. Anaemia is caused when your haemoglobin levels are low or when you have a deficiency of iron. During menopause, some women tend to have heavy periods which could lead to excessive blood loss. Regular CBC test is needed so that timely measures can be taken to prevent anaemia.

  1. Pap Smear Test:

It is estimated that every year about 74000 women die of cervical cancer. Its fatality can be reduced only if it’s treated in its early stage. But cervical cancer has no marked symptoms until it’s too late. That is why getting a Pap Smear Test done once in every two years is a must especially for women who are sexually active as the cancer can be caused by a sexually transmitted virus (HPV) too.

  1. Complete Urine Exam (CUE):

Since women are more susceptible to UTI or urinary tract infection, getting a CUE done routinely is required. The necessity of this test increases even more for sexually active women and if you have gone through your menopause. With the help of your urine sample, your doctor can trace your food and exercise habits and suggest changes in them if required. Secondly, through urine, we get rid of a lot of toxins. The examination of these toxins helps in detecting any hidden health complications especially related to the kidneys before they reach a critical stage.

Undertaking the above tests in a timely manner can help you prevent or at least reduce the dangers of major health problems like heart attack, anaemia, cancer, depression, etc.  At the same time, it is also equally important to choose a well equipped and renowned diagnostics centre such as Apollo Diagnostics.
