Why Do We Need Health Screening?

A health screening or medical checkup is a series of tests and examinations to check how well the various organs in our body are working. The purpose is to detect hidden health issues before you develop symptoms. It is beneficial for people of all ages and health status, since prevention is the best cure. In case a health condition has developed, early detection often allows for more effective and less costly treatment options.

A typical health checkup involves consultation with a doctor, physical exams, blood test, urine test, stool test, X-ray and other screenings for common high risk diseases such as high cholesterol, diabetes, heart, kidney, liver and lung disease. The scope and frequency of screening depend on your age, overall health, family history, lifestyle habits and other risk factors.


Which Health Screening Package Is For Me?

We recommend the Essential Health Screening package for all adults, at least once every 2 years for people under the age of 40 and annually for people aged 40 and above. However, your individual profile and circumstance may require additional tests, such as before you tie the knot or when you develop certain risk factors. You may also be personally interested to find out your risk of developing cancer through tumour markers, which is only included in our more comprehensive packages.

If you are unsure, please feel free to consult the Charazoi team to determine your most suitable health screening package.

What To Expect at a Health Screening?

Before the Health Screening: You should fast for 10-12 hours, i.e., no breakfast, tea, or coffee on the morning of your appointment. Fasting helps ensure more accurate blood level readings. Instructions and reminders will be sent to you.

During the Health Screening: Your basic vitals will be taken, including height and weight measurement and physical examination by the Doctor. Blood test and other tests will be conducted.

After the Health Screening: After 2-3 days, we will arrange for a post-screening consultation with the Doctor should there be any critical results and follow-up is required.

 

FAQ - What Do The Above Tests Mean for Me?

Below is a rundown of the significance of the tests listed in the our different packages:

  • Haematology Profile helps detect underlying blood disorders such as anaemia, leukaemia and bleeding issues.
  • Renal Profile assesses your kidney function.
  • Diabetic Profile measures your fasting blood glucose to detect diabetes.
  • Bone/Joint Profile assesses the levels of calcium, phosphate and uric acid (for gout).
  • Lipid Profile measures the cholesterol levels of LDL (“bad cholesterol”), HDL (“good cholesterol”) and Triglycerides. Abnormal lipid profile is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
  • Liver Profile measures the enzymes in your liver which may indicate any underlying inflammation of the liver due to certain diseases.
  • Thyroid Studies measures your thyroid hormones which help to indicate whether the thyroid gland is functioning normally.
  • Hepatitis Profile assesses your immunity to Hepatitis A and B.
  • Tumour Markers may help to detect early cancer. There are specific tumour markers for different types of cancer:
    • AFP (liver)
    • CEA (colon, lung)
    • Ca19.9 (pancreas)
    • Ca125 (ovary)
    • Ca15.3 (breast)
    • PSA (prostate)
  • STD Test screens for underlying sexually transmitted infection.
  • Stool Test assesses for the presence of occult (“hidden”) blood in the stool which may indicate underlying colon cancer.
  • Urine Test screens for urine infection. The presence of protein or blood in the urine may indicate underlying kidney disease.
