Stubbornness of omitting routine laboratory test keeps people away from the knowledge of nascent stage of diseases. For Example, After the age of 30 to 35, Everyone is more likely to have heart attack in future because aging causes the heart arteries to narrow due to the build up of cholesterol. Routine lab tests empower the person to track this abnormality before it become worse which will then defend the health. Except the cardiac disease, there are some more insidious diseases  which commonly grow in body with the  age such as the diabetes(abnormal level of blood sugar), dysfunctionality of different organs (problem in liver, kidney and etc.), Rheumatoid arthritis ( Muscles pain), Anemia( decrease in blood volume).

If these abnormalities are not diagnose and treat in a timely Manner, they not only exacerbate the person’s illness but also force him or her to undergo over diagnosis, over treatment and over money spending.
