Young Adult Health Care Q & A

Carnegie Hill Pediatrics

Why is it important for young adults to see a doctor?

It’s important for young adults, those aged 18-25, to have regular health care. In too many circumstances, this group is cut off from their pediatrician at 18, and many individuals don’t seek a new physician until health problems arise later on down the road. After all, they’re in good health and typically have few issues.

However, receiving regular health care can have a significant impact on the health and wellness of young adults. Preventive medicine can reduce or even eliminate the risk of common chronic conditions that arise during this period, and screening for diseases common among young adults can reduce any long-term effects.

What are the unique health needs of young adults?

Several health concerns are unique, or at least more prevalent, for this age group. Some of the most prominent include:

  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse
  • Sexual health
  • High-risk behaviors

Beyond these issues, when you see a doctor who addresses the needs of young adults, you may be monitored for symptoms of chronic conditions that can develop during this period. These include:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Mental health disorders

Why see a doctor who specializes in young adult care?

It’s important for young adults to find a practitioner who specializes in caring for their specific needs, whom they can talk to openly and honestly. The physicians at Carnegie Hill Pediatrics have years of experience building therapeutic relationships with young adults and monitoring their health and wellness during this age of transition.
