‘UNNECESSARY TESTS CREATE DOUBTS’
“Having a routine checkup
▪ was advisable but only those tests should be done which were relevant to one’s problem on an individual basis. However, out of curiosity elderly people were now coming with a host of pathology reports,” founder of Aastha Geriatric Hospital Dr Abhishek Shukla said. He said that unnecessary
▪ tests created doubts and sometimes depression about oneself and one’s health.
The fact is that as per
▪ the age, the results of tests will vary in comparison to a healthy person. Hence at times, despite a little variation in reports, there is nothing to worry about,” said Dr Shukla.
