Health conditions often develop slowly over time, & you may not always be experiencing symptoms. Private health check-ups are the best way to ensure that everything is working as it should be. They are preventive in nature, which means that you do not have to be ill to undergo a private check up.
More specific investigations to monitor & evaluate conditions such as diabetes, blood pressure, hormone levels and INR/Warfarin management are also available, as well as a full range of testing options. We can also offer tailored packages to suit your individual needs.
A routine medical check-up can reveal the following:
- 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 health check, 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. Early detection of serious diseases leads to better cures, faster recuperation and improved quality of life.
What does the test include
Private health 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.
