I believe everyone of us have experienced at least once full body medical check-up in their life. I am going to be doing mine later on at 10:00am and I was instructed to fast for 10 hours. No food, no drink. It might not be a big deal to most people. But, to a diabetic, it is. It is about three more hours when my tests starts and the medical centre said it would take 3 to 4 hours. Does that mean I can only eat at 1:00pm or 2:00pm?
I have checked the website of this wellness assessment centre I’m doing my check-up with. It says a complimentary breakfast will be given after the blood test which would be done the first thing after registration. I am glad.
This package includes the following:
- Complete History Taking
- Complete Physical Examination
- Full Blood Count
- Full Lipid Profile
- Pap Smear
- Breast Ultrasound or Mammogram
- Pelvic Ultrasound
- Ovarian Cancer Marker
This package sounds comprehensive and it is also a complementary health screening paid by the insurance company.
It might be troublesome but doing regular medical check-up has its benefits. It is important to understand that many small and critical illnesses and disorders can be prevented or controlled if they’re caught early. Not only do regular visits to your doctor help ensure an early diagnosis, but you can also get an up-to-date prescription. Why spend a big bomb for medical when you can spend little for regular full body checks?
