Frequency of health checkups

Usually most people undergo a health checkup mainly when they are unwell. However increasingly companies are making it mandatory for their senior employees to undergo a health checkup periodically, at least once a year, as they lead stressful lives

While there are many diagnostic labs offering health checkups, doctors say that it is advisable to under go a checkup only once in 6 months or a year, as there is not likely to be much change in the health parameters of the person in a period of 1 month or 3 months.

For senior citizens, there are many diagnostic labs which visit the person in his or her home, to take the necessary samples, and provide the results to them at home.
