This women’s package gives a general overview of your health. It identifies early signs of diabetes and hepatitis via blood screening.
It also includes a PAP smear (cervical cancer screen), breast mammogram, chest x-ray, ultrasound abdomen and pelvis, an ECG (electrical heart trace), and vision and colour vision testing.
Correct diagnosis and early detection of health issues 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.
Who should get tested?
– Women above 40 years old
– People with previous heart attacks or any other heart conditions
– People with family history of heart disease
– People with high blood pressure
– Patients on treatment for high blood pressure
– People with high cholesterol
– People who are overweight
– Heavy alcohol intake
– Diabetics or those with borderline diabetes

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
A Pap smear is a screening procedure for cervical cancer. It tests for the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells on your cervix (opening of the uterus). During the procedure, cells from your cervix are gently scraped away and examined for abnormal growth. Current guidelines recommend that women get regular Pap smears every three years starting at age 21. Some women may be at increased risk for cancer or infection. You may need more frequent tests if you’re HIV-positive or you have a weakened immune system from chemotherapy or an organ transplant.
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.
