What does it involve?

General Assessment

▸ Physical Examination
Body Mass Index (BMI)

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI can be used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems but it is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual.

Blood Pressure Reading

This test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low. High blood pressure (hypertension) can put a stress on your arteries and organs, which can increase your risk of developing serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Low blood pressure (hypotension) is not usually as serious, but it can cause dizziness and fainting in some people, especially elderly.

▸ Pulse Rate Reading

This test measures your heart rate, which checks for too fast (tachycardia) or too slow (bradycardia) rates, as well as irregular rhythms (arrhythmias) – which can indicate structural heart defects.

▸ Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

BMR is the number of calories that your body burns while it’s at rest. It can be used to help you gain, lose or maintain your weight. By knowing how many calories you burn, you can know how many to consume.

Body Composition Analysis

This test provides a detailed body composition analysis giving an approximation of your body’s reserves of fat, protein, water and muscle contents.

▸ Health & Medical History

Blood Screening

Full Blood Count
Haemoglobin; RBC; WCC; 5 part differential count; Platelet count; PCV; MCH/MCV; MCHC; Peripheral blood film

This test gives an overview of blood health: highlighting early signs of blood disoders, infection, inflammation and blood cancers.

Diabetes Screening

Diabetes Screening Test (include HbA1c)
Fasting blood glucose, HbA1C

This test tells you how much sugar you have circulating in your body. Higher sugar (glucose) predisposes you to diabetes. This test includes HbA1C, which helps diagnose diabetes and prediabetes. It can also guide patients already on existing diabetes sugar-lowering medications.

Lipid Assessment

Lipid Function Profile
Total cholesterol; Triglycerides; LDL; HDL; Total cholesterol/HDL ratio

This is an in depth test showing levels of various cholesterols and fatty acids in your blood. High cholesterol predisposes to heart disease, stroke and diabetes. This test is also helpful to guide patients on existing cholesterol lowering medication – togauge if they are on adequate medication.

Liver Function

Liver Function Test
ALT (SGPT); AST (SGOT); GGT; Total protein; Albumin; Globulin; ALP; Bilirubin (total)

This test gives an overview of liver function: highlighting your body’s nutrition status, protein content, liver enzyme function and ability to excrete your body’s toxins and waste. It detects any early signs of liver dysfunction.

Kidney Function

Renal Function Profile
Sodium; Potassium; Chloride; Urea; Uric acid; Creatinine; Phosphate; Calcium

This test gives an overview of kidney health: highlighting early signs of reduced kidney function, body electrolyte content, mineral content and hydration level.

Urine Analysis

▸ General Urinalysis (FEME)
urinalysis: appearance, colour, pH, protein, glucose, ketones, blood, WBC, RBC, epithelial cells, crystal, cast, bilirubin, urobilinogen, nitrite, leukocytes

This test gives a comprehensive overview of your kidney health. Abnormalities can highlight early signs of urinary tract dysfunction, diabetes or liver dysfunction.

Gout Screening

Serum Uric Acid

This test detects high levels of uric acid in the blood, which could be a sign of gout. It is also vital to monitor uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer.

Blood Grouping

ABO Blood Grouping +  Rhesus

This test is conducted to categorise your blood type and group, alongside your Rhesus status. It is important to know your blood type to prevent the risk of you receiving an incompatible blood type at a time of need, such as during a blood transfusion or during surgery.

▸ Serum Iron Test

Hepatitis Screening

Hepatitis Screening (A, B, C)

This test can screen or diagnose for Hepatitis A, B & C infection or determine if you are immune. It can also monitor your condition if you have existing Hepatitis.

Thyroid Assessment

Thyroid Function Test
TSH, Free T4

TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test gives an overview of thyroid health: highlighting the effectiveness of your body’s metabolism. Free thyroxine (free T4) tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. It is usually analysed when thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is abnormal.

Cardiac Screening

Stress Test ECG

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity in your heart. During the stress test, you’ll be asked to exercise, typically on a treadmill, while you’re hooked up to an ECG machine. This can give insight into your heart rate and heart rhythm. It also highlights irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), previous heart attacks (myocardial infarction), blocked coronary arteries, high blood pressure (hypertension), heart valvular diseases and structural heart defects.

Infectious Disease Screening

HIV I &  II Antibody

This test can indicate if someone is infected with HIV. Early detection can prevent the infection developing into AIDS (acquired immudificiency syndrome). Patients who are undergoing treatment for HIV & AIDS will also benefit from this test, as it can guide the efficacy of their current treatment.

Cancer Screening

Tumour marker – AFP (Liver Cancer)

AFP (alpha feto protein) helps diagnose and monitor treatment for certain cancers of the liver, ovaries or testicles. A raised value increases the likelihood of cancer. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.

Tumour marker – CEA (Colon Cancer)

CEA is a tumour marker for certain cancers like colon, bladder, breast, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, stomach and thyroid. A raised value increases the likelihood of cancer. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.

Tumour marker – CA 19.9 (Pancreatic Cancer)

This is a pancreatic cancer marker. A raised value increases the likelihood of pancreatic cancer. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.

Tumour marker PSA (Prostate Cancer)

PSA is a prostate cancer tumour marker. A raised value increases the likelihood of prostate dysfunction, either cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.

Tumour marker EBV (Nose & Throat Cancer)

EBV (Epstein–Barr virus) can be used as a tumour marker to detect certain cancers like lymphoma (blood cancer), stomach cancer and nasopharyngeal cancer. A raised value indicates a higher likelihood of cancer. Early detection greatly improves outcomes.

Autoimmune Screening

Rheumatoid Arthritis Factor

This is a marker used to screen for various autoimmune disease, like Rheumatoid Arthritis, and certain infectious diseases, like Tuberculosis.

Radiological Examination

▸ Chest X-Ray

Chest X Ray is an imaging test used to help detect abnormalities or diseases of the airways, blood vessels, bones, heart and lungs.

▸ Ultrasound Abdomen & Pelvis

Ultrasound abdomen and pelvis is an imaging test used in the assessment of solid organs and fluid-filled structures. In the abdomen, it can be used to examine the liver, gallbladder, biliary tract, part of the renal tract, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, major blood vessels and appendix. In the pelvis, for females, it is used to visualise the uterus, cervix, ovaries, Fallopian tubes and bladder. In the pelvis, for males, it is used to visualise the prostate, bladder and seminal vesicles.

Gastrointestinal Screening

▸ Helicobacter Pylori Antibody

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a type of bacteria that is a major cause of peptic (digestive) ulcers. H. pylori testing detects an infection of the digestive tract caused by the bacteria to help diagnose the cause of symptoms and/or ulcers.

Consultations & Report

▸ Medical Officer’s Consultation


▸ Visual Acuity Test

A series of tests performed to assess vision, visual fields and ability to focus on and discern objects.

▸ Color Blindness

Some people are colour blind and don’t know it. For example, they know tree leaves are green, so they think the color they see is “green.” This test helps diagnose colour blindness and determine which colours you are blind to.
