According to data from INEGI and the World Health Organization (WHO), the main diseases in Mexico are heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, which can be detected through check-ups and doctor’s visits.

One of the best ways to do this is through a Check-up, which consists of performing a series of tests and clinical examinations to evaluate the general state of your body.
