Help Reduce Health Care Cost with Preventative Maintenance

By  |  Published 

As the country struggles with the need to reform health care in the United States, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: taking steps to prevent certain diseases is essential.

In fact, much of the rising health care cost within the U.S. health care system is related to the care of individuals who are suffering from chronic diseases that are preventable. But, just what are these preventable diseases that the government keeps talking about?

Some of the preventable conditions that you can avoid by making smarter lifestyle choices include:

  • Obesity
  • Heart Disease
  • HIV / AIDs
  • Liver Disease
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney Disease


Treating each of these conditions takes a significant toll on the U.S. health care system. Yet, by making some lifestyle changes and by obtaining regular medical checkups, you can help live a healthier life while also doing your part to keep health care cost down.
