Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74 who has not already been diagnosed with these conditions will be invited by letter for a check once every 5 years. It’s impossible to say that someone will or will not go on to develop one of these conditions but by taking action now, it can help to lower your potential risk and improve your chances of living a healthier life.
