Women's Health Q & A

Why is women’s health care important?

Most women know that annual Pap smears, breast exams, and pelvic exams are essential for the early detection of cancers. But what most women don’t realize is that heart disease affects women almost equally as much as it does men. In fact, about one in four deaths among women in the US are caused by heart disease. 

Having annual wellness exams is important to check for early warning signs of heart disease, like high cholesterol or high blood pressure. These evaluations are also critical to:

  • Help manage your weight 
  • Check your hormone levels
  • Track changes in your health
  • Check your blood sugar (glucose)
  • Get screened for conditions that run in your family

It’s important to have preventive care exams in addition to your annual well-woman exams to check your overall health and look for red flags that could indicate a problem. 

Which women’s health screenings do I need?

Theo is dedicated to ensuring you’re in good health and helping you find ways to improve your wellbeing. He recommends screenings based on your personal and family health history, as well as any concerns you have now. Some of the most common women’s health screenings include:

  • A1C test (to check for prediabetes or diabetes)
  • Bone density screening 
  • Hormone evaluation 
  • Blood pressure check 
  • Cholesterol test 
  • Mammogram  

Theo can partner with your OB/GYN to ensure you’re receiving well-rounded care. He can also help update your medications or prescribe new medications when needed. 

What happens during a women’s health exam?

When you come to visit Zenith Care Group for your women’s health exam, Theo has a conversation with you about your health history. He gets to the root of any issues you’ve had and tailors your appointment to your needs. Most women’s health exams include:

  • Body mass index (BMI) calculation 
  • Neurological and reflex screening
  • Vision and hearing screening
  • Blood draw
  • Urinalysis 

If you have any concerns you’d like to address, write them down before your appointment at Zenith Care Group, so you can ensure you get answers to all of your questions. 

In addition to routine women’s wellness services, Theo also provides concierge services and chronic disease management, so you have a medical practitioner on your side who’s dedicated to helping you enhance your health.
