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.
▸ Height and 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.
A series of tests performed to assess vision, visual fields and ability to focus on and discern objects.
A color vision test, also known as the Ishihara color test, measures your ability to tell the difference among colors. If you don’t pass this test, you may have poor color vision, or your doctor may tell you that you’re color blind. However, being truly color blind is a very rare condition in which you’re only able to see shades of gray.
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.
▸ Hepatitis Screening
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.
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
This is a pancreatic cancer marker. A raised value increases the likelihood of pancreatic cancer. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.
▸ Prostate-Specific Antigen (Male)
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.
This test will help determine if you are deficient in vitamins B6, B9 (folate). It can also be used to determine if you are at an increased risk of heart attack or stroke; or to monitor those who have heart disease
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.
▸ 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.

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 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.
Pure tone audiometry is a hearing test used to identify hearing threshold levels of an individual, enabling determination of the extent and type of a hearing loss of a patient. This helps your doctor form a diagnosis and treatment plan.
▸ Bone Densitometry
Bone densitometry is an imaging procedure that quickly and accurately measures the density of bone. It is used primarily to detect osteopenia – diseases in which the bone's mineral and density are low and the risk of fractures is increased.
