Lagos ? A medical doctor, Dr Dayo Ojo, on Saturday in Lagos urged Nigerians to always check their health status against any ailment.
 
Ojo, of Calvary Medical Hospital, Ayobo, Lagos, told the News Agency of Nigeria that regular check-up was a way to get early intervention and arrest a deteriorating health situation.
 
?Nigerians should pay more attention to their health by inculcating the habit of going for general check up to help stay healthy.
 
?Men and women of every age need check-up, which will pave the way for early detection and treatment of health challenges before they become serious and more difficult to manage,? he said.
 
He urged the public to take charge of their health, saying that should be their first priority in life.
 
Ojo advised people to visit the hospital once a year to discuss with their doctors what screening or test they need and when they need it.
 
?Take action now to protect your health and well being in future, prioritise your health, as the key to keep your body running smoothly is regular check-up.
 
?Visit your doctor and have some tests done to find out if there is anything wrong in your body.
 
?If you don?t have a personal physician think about getting one,? he said.
 
According to him, some people avoid regular check-up even when the tests are free, believing that they are in good health.
