Your Medical History at Your Fingertips
posted by The Live Better Team | March 18, 2016
Did you get that tendonitis surgery in 1998? Or was it 1997? What is the name of that blood thinner you took last year? Are the results back from your most recent cholesterol check?
At any given time, we all have medical questions. Some of them involve results of recent check ups. Others mean calling up more distant memories when updating medical history for a specialist or our own reference. It can be a lot to remember with all the other things that any of us have on our minds.

Knowing your medical stats can help you live a healthier life. For instance, about half of people with high blood pressure do not know that they have it. But, when people know about health issues such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, they are in a better place to take actions that can help them control it.
An informed patient is a healthier patient. A study of 1000 patients found that those who felt well-informed were more likely to be engaged and involved in their care and understand the care that they were getting. These patients were twice as likely to ask their doctors questions and make sure that they understood medical instructions.
By understanding what is required for you to get better when you are ill, and knowing your blood pressure, cholesterol count and other numbers from your most recent medical appointments, you can get a better picture of your health as a whole. This makes it easier for you to make the right lifestyle decisions to support your best personal level of health.
