Our immune system protects our body from the surrounding environment, this environment contains substances such as microbes or chemicals, which could be hazardous, infectious and damaging to our body, therefore our immune system preserves the integrity of our body. This is mainly achieved by initial recognition of the body by the immune system, then an adequate response to foreign bodies or material in the body is carried out whenever necessary. The immune system often falls at risk, as a result of repeated fights carried out against various foreign material. Therefore, a full medical check-up might be required for an individual.
What Then Does a Full Medical Check-up Entail?
