Prioritizing Your Health

Some people wouldn't pay attention to their medical condition. I've noticed that Filipinos don't prioritize their health. They would see their doctors not when they feel the symptoms of a condition but would consult their doctors once the condition becomes worst.

I don't blame them. It's because of the high price of the health system in our country. However, I do wish that our people would become more aware of any of their conditions. Things such as allergies, blood type, family history of disease is important. I'm amaze that some college students still don't know their blood type. These kind of information should be kept on a Medical ID or a medical card on your wallet so in case of emergency, you are sure that you will be administered with the right prescription drugs.

Also, becoming a member of PhilHealth would greatly benefit you and could ease the burden of paying for your doctor's fees, etc.
