What are the best health screening tests? Our initial review suggests that some health screening tests come highly recommended. Amongst those which are easy to do, reasonably accurate and provide potentially useful health benefits are:
- AAA (Abdominal aortic aneurysm)
- BMI (Body Mass Index)
- Blood Pressure Test (using a blood pressure monitor)
- Cervical Screening
- Diabetes Test (using a simple blood test)
- Glaucoma Test (through an eye test at your optician)
- HIV Test
There are often health stories in the media and on social media, for instance about cancer, vitamin and mineral supplements and red wine.
Here are a few common examples, with a quick fact check.
