An assigned physician will look into all the general information about the patient and then review the current injury or disorder. Based on findings, further diagnostic procedures or treatment will be recommended.
Apart from these four chronic diseases- cancer, diabetes, stroke and heart disease, several other issues such as allergies, anemia, arthritis, blood pressure, cholesterol issues, digestive disorders, colon disease,thyroid disorders, urine and bladder problems, tendonitis and bursitis, along with many more medical conditions affect adults.
While some medical conditions are caused by external facts, many medical problems arise due to genetic predispositions.
There are a wide range of medical conditions that are preventable and several programs are set in place to manage an adult’s health. However, not all medical disorders are completely preventable.
It is extremely important to follow up with annual health checkups. This will help you keep a check on several risk factors that may lead to complex conditions in the future.
Manipal Hospitals is dedicated to providing high-quality, personalised care and building long-term partnerships with its patients. Our Internal Medicine Department, its various subspecialities and patients are a testament to this.
