One out of every six people in this country never see the doctor for a regular check up since they do not have medical insurance. As a result many diseases with no symptoms like hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol go undetected.
These diseases are silent killers since they can cause heart attack, stroke or even sudden death if untreated. It’s important to detect and treat these silent killer diseases in people with no medical insurance who never see a doctor because of the cost of medical care.
