Here are medical tests every man and woman should have in their 30s for his or her health.

These are just a few of the medical examinations or tests that are essential to a man and woman’s health in their 30s and continued through to 50s
Blood Pressure Screening
High blood pressure is a major contributing risk factor for heart failure, heart attack, stroke, and chronic kidney disease and it is very serious if left unmanaged. Screening for and treatment of high blood pressure in adults substantially reduces the incidence of cardiovascular events.
Body Mass Index
Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women
Your BMI indicates whether or not you are obese, a condition that raises your risk of serious health problems like diabetes and heart disease.
Electrocardiogram ECG Test
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a medical test that detects cardiac (heart) abnormalities by measuring the electrical activity generated by the heart as it contracts.
An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in your heart. It’s a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart’s health according to Mayo Clinic
Recommended after age 35, an electrocardiogram (ECG) checks for the risk of heart abnormalities. If the report is normal, it can be repeated annually.
A urinalysis is a simple test that looks at a small sample of your urine. It can help find problems that need treatment, including infections or kidney problems.
It checks for the presence of proteins, sugar and blood (especially in smokers who are at high risk for bladder cancer) in the urine sample, which could indicate kidney disease, among other conditions.
Liver Function Test
Liver function tests also referred to as hepatic panels, are groups of blood tests that provide information about the state of a patient’s liver.
This is done annually to screen for liver conditions, such as alcohol-induced liver damage, fatty liver, Hepatitis C and B.
Kidney Function Test
A high reading of serum creatinine may indicate impaired kidney function. Even though a reading of 0.3-1.2 is considered normal, the size of an individual also needs to be taken into account.
A complete blood count, or CBC
A complete blood count (CBC) is a blood test used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anaemia, infection and leukaemia. A complete blood count test measures several components and features of your blood, including Red blood cells, which carry oxygen.
