What other tests do you need and how often?

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends screenings to help you maintain your health. The chart below will help you to remember when it is time to go for your checkups. Just look for your age range and follow the list.

*People at high risk may need monitoring more often. See your primary care physician. **Younger adults (men age 20-35 and women age 20-45) should be screened if they have other risk factors for heart disease. These risk factors include tobacco use, diabetes, family history of heart disease or high cholesterol, or high blood pressure. ***Your risk factors will determine how often you should get these checkups. Ask your primary care physician.
