To do or not to do, that is the question

Gavin LeSueur - June 14, 2010

Screening for pre-disease states and intervening with an action plan is one of the major areas of study within preventative health. For a screening test to be included in the screening test, the subsequent results and the ability to do something about the results all need to pass a rigorous scientific approach. A good recent example is the screening for pre-diabetes and the subsequent intervention with lifestyle and/or medications. It has been shown that it is worthwhile both for the individual and for the community. In other words, doing the screening and acting on the results willl save you money, assist your health and reduce the health cost burden on the community.
