The 3 Steps
Follow these simple steps and start taking control of your health today.
Remember What Great Feels Like
Knowing how you feel when you’re at your best will help you notice small changes in your overall health that could be signs of larger health problems. That means paying attention to your energy level, sleep patterns, weight, skin, and bathroom habits on a regular basis.
Use The Two Week Rule
If you notice a subtle change in your normal health that lasts two weeks or more, it’s time to call your doctor and learn what is causing the changes. While not every change is cause for concern, seeing a doctor after two weeks will not cause harm—waiting could.
Share With Your Doctor
Taking action and talking to your doctor about small health changes is your best pathway to earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment. It’s important to communicate openly and honestly so you and your doctor together can make the most informed decisions, and get you back to full health. Even if it’s a hard or embarrassing conversation to have, what’s most important is getting the best care possible.
