The following areas of interest for the days before PEME will increase your chances of being “fit to work” without implications:
- Get a good night’s sleep
Sleeping at least 8 hours the night before your exam will keep your blood pressure lower.
Commit to a seven-day diet with more fruits and vegetables and less sugar. Stop skipping breakfast.
3.Avoid coffee and alcohol
Do not drink coffee or alcohol in the hours prior the exam, as they cause hypertension.
4.Water is your friend
Drink more water in the days prior PEME, to help your body get rid of the toxins you have consumed.
5.Know your teeth
Take care of your mouth hygiene before the exam. Go to a dentist for a provisional check and teeth cleaning.
Exercise gives you a feeling of wellness, but try to avoid it prior medical exam as it can elevate your heart rate and drop your potassium levels.
