5 Important Health Tests You Can Do At Home

Some people avoid preventive medical exams either because they don’t
have the time or because they are afraid of doctors. However, you can do
a couple of health tests on your own. These methods will help you
discover whether it’s time to see an expert or you are completely well.

Brain

You will need a piece of paper, a pen or a marker, and some help from a
friend. Draw a clock and tell your friend to tell you the time in hours
and minutes. Then draw the clock handles on the correct time. This test
includes a lot of processes in the brain. Parts responsible for the
movement of the hands and the visual perception are working at higher
levels, therefore the inability to draw the clock and its handles might
be a sign of dementia.

Spine

You will need to scales. Stand with the left foot one and with the right
foot on the other scale. The weight on both scales should be about the
same. If there is a big difference in the results, that shows how much
your hip might be dislocated. It is best to see a doctor.

Bones

Look at your nails. If they are rough and cracked or have white stains
that are not just a cosmetic problem. This condition shows that your
body doesn’t have enough vitamin B, or there is a high risk of
osteoporosis.

Hearing

Try to hear what people are talking about at a distance of about 5-6
meters. If you cannot understand anything, it is best to see a doctor.
It is important that this method doesn’t always work at noisy places. In
a cafe with loud music, you cannot even hear the person sitting next to
you.

Liver

Look in a mirror in which you can see your whole body. Is there fat
above your waist? Those are fats around your liver which prevent him
from functioning properly. On the other hand, yellow eyes, fat
(especially on the eyelids) and a stained tongue are also symptoms there
might be something wrong with your liver.
