Something that I have struggled with in my adult life is knowing what healthcare concerns are legitimate and when am I freaking out for no reason?  Today’s post comes from a health professional from www.fithealthyliving.com.  Check it out.

So you’re pushing 30 and you think you’re old already. The reality is you’re still young – you’re just not a kid anymore. As far as health is concerned if you’re about to turn thirty you fall into a gray area. While you are too young to be at risk for most diseases it is easy to still take your health for granted.

The immunization for tetanus only lasts for 10 years so it may be time to get revaccinated if your last vaccine was when you were at college. It can also be a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor to test for general health problems such as high blood pressure and cholesterol. You should consider undergoing a blood test to test for any vitamin deficiencies or abnormalities as these can cause health problems later on in life. Don’t neglect your teeth – visiting the dentist more often will help to prevent cavities and gum disease. If you’re women pushing thirty and you are at a high risk for breast cancer now might be the time to see your doctor and have a mammogram.

The average age for marriage has risen significantly in the last few decades. Sixty years ago you may have been considered odd for not getting married but now it is common for women to marry later due to their education and career. If you’re worried you will have problems conceiving in your 30s you shouldn’t – according to a report published in the journal Human Reproduction, female fertility does not start to decline dramatically until after the age of 35.

The average life span has increased radically in just the last few decades due to better health and nutrition and is expected to rise further. Turning 30 means you have a long time to go yet, by the time you’re old, advances in medicine and health care should make old age more comfortable.

It’s not how old you are, it’s how young you feel. If you eat a good diet, exercise and don’t get too stressed you should age slower and stay healthier longer!
