With work, studies, and household issues to take care of, your to-do list on a regular basis is probably longer than you wish it to be, and so you might be tempted to let your annual checkup slip. But don’t let that happen. Going to the doctor might be the last thing on your mind right now but regular tests might save your health and your life too. A little idea: Each year around your birthday, give yourself a gift. Schedule a visit to your dentist and consult your doctor to see if there are important tests you should take. With an investment of an hour or two, you may be able to add years to your life.  For starters, we consulted Dr Devish Pyakurel of Samyak Diagonstics to lay out the five essential medical tests you need once you are in your 30s.
