The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions:

  • Update your family health history to include any new health problems among close relatives.

  • Create a list of any recent symptoms, issues or questions for your doctor. Topics may include changes in eating or sleep habits, or recent symptoms of depression or anxiety.

  • Think about your future, and discuss any health-related issues or changes with your doctor. Such issues may include quitting smoking or losing weight, etc.
