In brief: Unknown

This is a complex question which depends upon your underlying health and your destinations.
Chronic illness can be hard to manage if you travel a lot. You may need some screening tests for illnesses such as TB etc. People who travel regularly have difficulty with getting exercise, maintaining good weight control, and sleeping enough. Discuss your the specifics of your health with your doctor.

Agree with Dr. Kohl. Would add that you also pay attention to your psychologic health. Family and Mental Health concerns are another category of risk for the longterm business traveler. As with other issues, much more easily managed in advance!
