Is this for me?
This essentials package gives an overview of your general health. It identifies early signs of blood, kidney, liver, cholesterol and pancreas health issues.
It also includes an ECG (electrical heart trace), vision and colour vision testing, syphilis screen, chest x-ray and hepatitis screening.
Correct diagnosis and early detection of diseases significantly improves survivability, treatment success and reduces risk of recurrence or disease progression and reduces mortality. All this aids in helping you take preventative cautious measures to ensure you remain healthy.

What does it involve?
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. This test also 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.
▸ Height & Weight, 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. Height and weight measurements are also taken.
▸ Complimentary Light Meal
▸ Full Blood Count, Erythrocytes Sedimentation Rate
This test gives an overview of blood health: highlighting early signs of blood disoders, infection, inflammation and blood cancers.
▸ Diabetes Screen (Blood Glucose)
This test tells you how much sugar you have circulating in your body. Higher sugar (glucose) predisposes you to diabetes. If this test is taken alongside a blood test for HbA1C – it can help to diagnose diabetes.
▸ Lipid Profile
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 Test
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.
▸ Renal Function
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
This test gives a comprehensive overview of your kidney health. Abnormalities can highlight early signs of urinary tract dysfunction, diabetes or liver dysfunction.
▸ Hepatitis B Screen (Antibody & Antigen)
This test can screen or diagnose for Hepatitis B infection or determine if you are immune. It can also monitor your condition if you have existing Hepatitis.
An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity in your heart at rest. 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
▸ STD Profile (VDRL- Syphilis)
This test is a screening test for Syphilis.
▸ Visual Acuity (Snellen Test)
A series of tests performed to assess vision, visual fields and ability to focus on and discern objects.
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.
Chest X Ray is an imaging test used to help detect abnormalities or diseases of the airways, blood vessels, bones, heart and lungs.
