Family History; Why It’s So Important

Imagine that you are walking through a swamp. It’s midnight. It’s foggy. There is no moon. You don’t know where the alligators are. I won’t go into the swamp unless I know where the alligators are. Do you have the cholesterol alligator? The depression alligator? The cancer alligators? The diabetes alligator? The high blood pressure alligator? The heart disease alligator?

There are lots of alligators that may be living in your swamp. Your family history gives you insight into the ones you may have to deal with. So, begin by researching your family history; parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, cousins and, if possible, grandparents and great aunts and uncles. The more information you can get, the better off you will be. Then you and your doctor can begin to design your personal plan for preventive maintenance; for early detection and diagnosis.
