Health conditions often develop slowly over time, & you may not always be experiencing symptoms. A check-up is the best way to ensure that everything is working as it should be. We offer a range of check-ups, depending on your specific health requirements. We offer head-to-toe examinations tailored especially for men & women in our signature Wellman & Wellwoman screenings, as well as more specific investigations targeted at monitoring & evaluating certain conditions (diabetes, blood pressure, hormone levels) & the effects of existing medication (INR/warfarin), as well as a full range of testing options. We can also offer tailored packages to suit your individual needs.
Some of the things that a routine medical check-up can reveal about your health include:
- Cardiovascular risk
- Signs of degenerative diseases, such as diabetes
- Immune system functioning
- Cholesterol levels
If you have an ongoing health concern that you would like to speak to a doctor about, you can come in for a consultation. The GP will examine you, ask you about your existing symptoms & past medical history, discuss any relevant testing options that may be of use in your diagnosis, & refer you on to a specialist where further investigation may be of help.
When should I get tested?
Regular medical check-ups are an important part of your healthcare routine & should become part of your self-care regimen. You don’t need to wait until you are feeling unwell to have a check-up, in fact having a check-up when you are feeling well can give you a better understanding of your health, & allow you to take preventative measures where necessary.
What does the test include
Medical check-ups involve a consultation with a doctor, who will perform various tests & examinations to determine your health. In most cases, you will be asked to give a urine sample, & blood samples will also be taken.
