As people approach their golden years, there are many decisions that have to be about heath care and health care products. Seniors find themselves with many unsolicited telephone calls, door-to-door salespersons, and mail regarding which products and services are “guaranteed” to best meet their needs.

You know you are getting old when your health related issues spike. Take cholesterol or sugar level for example. It sucks when you are forced to control what you eat in case those levels spike.
And just last week, I found out my cholesterol level was at an all time high. Last year, it was pretty normal and I was surprised that it totally spiked all of a sudden when I had my annual physical checkup recently.
Because of this, I have now paid attention closely to what HDL, LDL and VDL are for. When this happens, people tend to be more conscious and more aware on the kind of food that they will eat.
Even my SGPT level is near borderline so I have to minimize the salt particularly junk food and drink more water. While I drink water and coffee (without sugar) all the time, I cannot figure out why my SGPT level spiked considering I do not eat junk food that often.
If you do not know what SGPT is, it is about the liver. To lower this level I think the best alternative is to drink lots of water and lessen salt intake like junk food.
There will always come a time where our determination is put to the test. It won’t hurt to eat a little. The important thing is to continue your drive to eat and drink as much as possible only the kind of food that are healthy.
Oh, and one more thing. Do not forget to exercise ;).
I know you know what Obamacare is. It has been in the news and the topic pops itself occasionally.
First things first. Why need a health insurance? Believe me, insurance is very important nowadays.
Sure, if you are rich then you probably won’t have to think about any kind of insurance. But even billionaires have health insurance of their own because one can never predict the scope if one gets sick any time.
ObamaCare’s health care reform does a number of important things like offering Americans a number of new benefits, rights and protections with regards to healthcare where citizens can purchase federally regulated and subsidized health insurance during open enrollment.
The Affordable Care Act from HHS.gov’s site explains that this service puts consumers back in charge of their health care. Under the law, a new “Patient’s Bill of Rights” gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health.
The common site to visit in order to enroll is to go to the official government’s healthcare site but you can also apply to this portal to Sign up for Obamacare.
They also have a guide for applying that details steps and facts to give you insights and details before you actually decide to enroll for one. These, after all are important factors because we need to know first in whatever we sign up for, right?
Secure your future by having a health insurance of your own.
