A healthy body keeps you energetic, motivated, and at a low risk of diseases. Health is affected by many factors such as age, diet, family history, and lifestyle. Therefore it is important to have regular health check-ups to ensure vital body organs are working properly. The Health Check Plus is a convenient screen to help you understand your current health status as it is designed to provide an insight into a wide range of essential health markers that can be monitored overtime including:
Full Blood Count: This panel provides information about the number and types of cells in the blood such as red blood cells (important for transporting oxygen to organs and tissues), white blood cells (vital for immune system) and platelets (blood clotting and healing). This is an important screen for people who have symptoms of anaemia ( low blood cells and haemoglobin) or who suspect a bacterial or viral infection.
Fats and Sugar Levels (Cholesterol, Glucose and Triglycerides): This panel tests for Cholesterol, Glucose and Triglycerides as high levels may increase the risk of diabetes, heart attack or stroke.
Muscle Markers (Total Protein, Creatine Kinase): Proteins are important for body growth and wellness, as they are the building blocks of muscles cells and tissues. Low protein levels can be caused by malnutrition, kidney or liver disease. Creatine Kinase (CK) test is ordered to determine if muscles have been damaged either by injury or post-exercise.
Minerals for Bone Health (Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphate): Calcium and Phosphate are important for the development and healing of teeth and bones, muscle contraction, healing of wounds, and heart function. Magnesium is vital to energy production, muscle contraction and maintenance of strong bones. Most Magnesium in the body comes from dietary sources and low levels cause can muscle cramps, particularly during exercise.
Liver Function Tests are used to check for the presence of inflammation, infection, and liver disease.
Kidney Function screen is ordered to assess the overall status of the kidney. Creatinine and Urea are waste products produced when proteins is metabolised by the body. High levels are caused by dehydration, high protein diet, or may indicate that the kidneys are not working properly.
High Sensitivity CRP test is used to detect low-level inflammation that may damage blood vessels leading to a heart attack or stroke.
Electrolytes (Sodium, Potassium and Chloride): This panel measures the levels of electrolytes as they regulate water balance in the body as well as the function of muscles and nerves.
Pancreatic Enzymes (Amylase & Lipase): These enzymes are made by the pancreas and released into the digestive tract to digest starch and fatty food. These tests are ordered to diagnose acute pancreatitis ( inflammation of the pancreas).
Individuals of all ages as this screen focuses on key health markers that can be improved through positive changes in lifestyle.
