Want to achieve a better lifestyle and know more about your family medical history?
Knowing your family history might be one of the strongest influences on understanding your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes. According to the Center for Disease Control, a study conducted showed that 96 percent of Americans believed that knowing their family history is important, but only one third have actually gathered their family history.
Most people have a family health history of at least one chronic disease, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. If you have a close family member with a chronic disease, you may be more likely to develop that disease yourself, especially if more than one close relative has (or had) the disease or a family member got the disease at a younger age than usual. Collecting and having your family health history information or before visiting the doctor can help your doctor decide which screening tests you need and when those tests should start. You can’t change your genes, but you can change unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, not exercising or being active, and poor eating habits.
If you have a family health history of disease, you may have the most to gain from lifestyle changes and screening tests. In many cases, healthy living habits can reduce your risk for diseases that run in your family. Screening tests, such as blood sugar testing, mammograms, and colorectal cancer screening, help find early signs of disease. Finding disease early can often mean better health in the long run.
