Dr. Frank’s 5 Health and Wellness Tips

1. Get a complete physical exam, especially if you are over 40 years old.

2. At that exam have your healthcare provider check: Cholesterol, blood pressure, height & weight, urinalysis; and if you are sexually active without a monogamous partner, ask for STD screening to include HIV, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and syphilis.

3. Exercise at least 4 hours a week with weights and aerobic exercises

4. Know your family history, particularly as it pertains to genetic diseases and premature history of coronary heart disease, colon cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer.

5. Know that the two most important modifiable risk factors for heart disease, stoke and cancer are smoking cessation and weight modification.
