Preventative Healthcare Q&A

What is preventive health care?

Preventive health care is an area of medicine that helps people maintain a healthy life. In many cases, chronic illness and disease are preventable with the proper measures. 

Annual and routine physical exams at Absolute Healthcare can alert you to any health issues early on and help you seek treatment to reduce your risk of developing life-altering conditions. Early treatment is the most effective way of preserving your health. 

When might I need preventive health care?

Everyone can benefit from including preventive health care in their overall health plan. You may also need preventive medicine if you have a high risk of developing chronic disease.

Common risk factors for chronic disease include:

  • High blood pressure 
  • High cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • An inactive lifestyle
  • Smoking 
  • Excessive alcohol intake
  • Chronic stress
  • Poor nutrition

With the help of Absolute Healthcare, you can significantly reduce your risk of developing chronic illnesses that affect your quality of life. 

What happens during a preventive health care consultation?

When you come in for a preventive health consultation, your provider works with you to identify health problems that may increase your risk of having chronic disease. 

In addition to a review of your medical history and a comprehensive physical exam, your provider at Absolute Healthcare may order preventive health screenings, such as cholesterol screenings and blood tests (for diabetes). 

Depending on the results of these tests, your provider develops a preventive health care plan to address your specific health issues.

What does preventive health care include?

Absolute Healthcare may recommend preventive health treatments, such as:


Lifestyle and nutritional counseling

An unhealthy diet and lifestyle is a common cause of many chronic illnesses, including high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Your provider can help you create a more nutritious diet plan and better exercise regimen to support your body’s optimal functioning.

Your provider at Absolute Healthcare may also recommend lifestyle modifications like quitting smoking and limiting alcohol consumption and reducing stress in your everyday life. 


Medical weight loss

Being overweight or obese is one of the leading risk factors for cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes. 

Absolute Healthcare offers customized medical weight loss to help patients struggling with their weight to reach a healthier weight range. 



In some cases, patients need medication therapy to reduce their blood pressure or cholesterol levels. Some people also require medications to prevent serious health problems, like individuals with diabetes who need insulin to manage blood glucose.
