Woman to Woman at Every Age – Dr. Ivey-Crowe

March winds are signaling spring is near. March also marks that we are  three  months  into 2014, attempting to remain on task with our resolutions for the year. Hopefully, those resolutions included either staying or getting back on track with our health care needs, as well as our physical, spiritual and mental fitness.

At each visit with your health care provider, patients  are asked by the front  desk  staff,  nursing  staff  and their health  care providers, “are you getting  any blood  work  done  today?” or “when is the last time you were tested for….?” Most patients will respond with, “I’m not sure,” or, “what should I be getting done for my age?” or, “whatever the doctor feels I need”.

As women continue to strive towards being empowered with taking charge of their health, this article will provide recommendations for age-based testing. Together, with your history and individual risk factors, your healthcare provider will decide on the appropriate testing.   This is recommended testing and is not considered to be all-inclusive.
