abstract

  • "Most people don’t want to go to the doctor. Even more, most people of course don’t want to take medication regularly or have surgery.

    Believe it or not, doctors are also interested in making sure you don’t have to come see them or get any treatment! The challenge is that if we never go to the doctor, then we won’t know if anything is starting to become a problem.

    We doctors are worried most about diseases where people will not feel any symptoms until the disease is very bad. A few conditions that really concern us are high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, where these three contribute to at least four of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States."
