Men’s Health Screening Packages

It’s in everyone’s best interest that men’s health is back in the spotlight.
In general, men have a shorter life span than women (78.7 years compared to 83.2 years respectively in Ireland). Most men don’t like doctor visits or waiting rooms full of sick people. They don’t examine themselves for lumps and bumps, and they are less likely to report the symptoms of disease or illness. Time is an important factor for them too.

Leeuwenhoek made the facilities available nearer one’s workplace to make it easier for busy, active men like you to access to healthcare and to start tracking your health. –We want to increase awareness around preventing illness, not just acting on symptoms early. Whether it’s just to establish a baseline, to detect risks or to get early detection of a disease; we offer you a check-up package, no waiting rooms and a germ-free environment.

All our Men and Women Health Screening packages include:

Heightweight & body mass index (BMI)
Blood pressure measurement
SCORE risk estimation for heart attack and stroke. The SCORE (Systematic COronary Risk Evaluation) is a CVD risk assessment estimation developed by the European Society of Cardiology. It is based on the following risk factors: gender, age, smoking, systolic blood pressure, total cholesterol. SCORE estimates fatal cardiovascular disease events over a ten-year period.

Basic Health Screening

Evaluates overall health and consists of a set of laboratory test that is typically ordered by a GP during an annual physical examination. The results of these tests give a general oversight about general health status and establish a baseline. By knowing these levels you can begin to manage your own health to see if they fluctuate over time. This package includes:

Complete blood counts analyses size, shape, colour and quantity of the white and red cells and the platelets in our blood. A CBC is frequently used to check for anaemia, blood disorders, infection and several other disorders.

Calcium: its measurement helps to screen for conditions relating to bones, heart, nerves, kidneys, and teeth.

Glucose: It is used to screen, diagnose or monitor diabetes.

Liver function tests measure the levels of liver enzymes (ALT, AST and ALP), total bilirubin and total proteins with its classes albumin and globulins.

Kidney function tests are used to screen for kidney disease. It also helps to manage and follow kidney disease. These tests measure the levels of waste products urea, creatinine and uric acid which are passed out in the urine and electrolytes salts like sodium, potassium, chloride that help to keep the fluids and acid/base balance in the body.

Lipids profile includes cholesterol, HDL  “good cholesterol”, LDL “ bad cholesterol”, VLDL  and triglycerides. This group of test help to assess the risk of atherosclerosis and of developing heart disease, stroke or related cardiovascular diseases.

Urinalysis is a set of chemical, microscopic and macroscopic analysis that can detect some common diseases. It may be used to screen for and/or help diagnose conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, liver problems, diabetes or other metabolic conditions.

Tests on blood and urine.

Unless you are diabetic, we recommend that you fast (not eat any food) for at least 8-10 hours. Do drink water while fasting and continue with any prescribed medications following your doctor instructions. Ideally, you should be on a stable diet for two weeks prior to the taking of the blood sample.  If you have any question, contact us and we will let you know how to prepare for your blood tests.

A small amount of blood will be drawn by trained staff from a vein in your arm using a needle. The procedure is quick and easy. Rarely, some people may feel faint or dizzy while having the blood taken and you may need to lie down to help you to feel better. The procedure may cause some minor discomfort and a small bruise may develop in the area where the needle was inserted. Press over the site where the needle was inserted, keeping your arm straight to reduce the likelihood of bruise formation. If you develop redness or inflammation in the same area, seek your doctor for advice.

A urine sample is required for this test which should be taken first thing in the morning. We can provide you with a container. Please write your name, date of birth, and date and time of the sample taken on the container and bring it to us for examination.

A laboratory test result is produced after a scientific analysis done on a sample to assess an individual health status.

An abnormal finding may (but not necessarily) indicate a problem that needs to be addressed. We recommend that any abnormal result should promptly be consulted with your GP. Your doctor will evaluate the test results in the context of an overall clinical picture that takes into consideration your age, gender, ethnicity, family history, signs, symptoms, etc.

Comprehensive Plus Health Screening

The comprehensive plus gives very detailed information about your major body’s organ functions and health status. It gives a good insight of what your baseline is, or what is normal for you for future health and wellness. In addition to the Basic and Comprehensive tests, includes very specific markers that aid in the identification of specific conditions or diseases related to women in this age group. This package includes:
•   Complete blood count analyses size, shape, colour and quantity of the white and red cells and the platelets in our blood. A CBC is frequently used to check for anaemia, blood disorders, infection and several other disorders.
•   Bone minerals: Calcium and phosphate are structurally important in bones and teeth. Their measurements help to screen for conditions relating to bones, heart, nerves, muscle, kidneys, intracellular communication and teeth.

•   Thyroid function tests include measurement of the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (FT4) which are important in the control of the body’s metabolism. Its measurement is used to test for hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
•   Vitamin D levels reflect nutritional status, malabsoption or lack of exposure to sunlight. It plays a role in formation and maintenance of healthy bones. Elderly individuals are at risk of deficiency which may lead to osteomalacia, osteoporosis and has been associated with cancer, heart disease and immune disorders.
•   Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by normal, abnormal as well as by cancerous prostate cells. Higher PSA levels can sometimes be a sign of prostate cancer; but often non-cancerous reasons like recent urinary tract infection, infection and injury of prostate, ejaculation or an enlarged prostate (associated with age) can raise PSA levels. PSA is found free and complexed bound to other proteins. The free PSA test measures the percentage of the total PSA that is not bound to proteins. The free PSA/total PSA ratio helps to assess the risk of prostate cancer in patients with borderline or moderately increased total PSA. High total PSA levels and lower percentages of free PSA/total PSA ratio are associated with higher risks of prostate cancer. [-2]proPSA is a pre-mature form and a fraction of free PSA. The combined use of total PSA, free PSA and proPSA is used to calculate and to more accurately assess PCa risk.
•   CVD-Inflammation hsCRP identifies low levels of inflammation associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
•   Homocysteine is an amino acid which synthesis is dependent on folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. Therefore its levels help to identify deficiency or excess in those vitamins. High levels of homocysteine identify people at risk for coronary artery disease, occurrence of blood clots, heart attacks and strokes even when the traditional risk factors, such as unhealthy lipid levels, are not present
• Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is test used to help diagnose conditions associated with inflammation, including infections, tumours, and autoimmune diseases.
•   A urinalysis is a set of chemical, microscopic and macroscopic analysis that can detect some common diseases. It may be used to screen for and/or help diagnose conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, liver problems, diabetes or other metabolic conditions.

• Lipids profile includes cholesterol, HDL “good cholesterol”, LDL “bad cholesterol”, VLDL and triglycerides. This group of test help to assess the risk of atherosclerosis and of developing heart disease, stroke or related cardiovascular diseases.
Pancreatic function tests: Amylase and lipase are enzymes secreted by the pancreas and used to help diagnose and monitor pancreatitis and other pancreatic diseases.
• Thyroid function tests include measurement of the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (FT4) which are important in the control of the body’s metabolism. Its measurement is used to test for hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
• Parathyroid hormone measurement helps to evaluate the function of the parathyroid gland and helps to diagnose parathyroid disease and other diseases of calcium homeostasis.
• Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is test used to help diagnose conditions .associated with acute and chronic inflammation, including infections, tumours, and autoimmune diseases.
• A urinalysis is a set of chemical, microscopic and macroscopic analysis that can detect some common diseases. It may be used to screen for and/or help diagnose conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, liver problems, diabetes or other metabolic conditions.

Tests on blood and urine.

Unless you are diabetic, we recommend that you fast (not eat any food) for at least 8-10 hours. Do drink water while fasting and continue with any prescribed medications following your doctor instructions. Ideally, you should be on a stable diet for two weeks prior to the taking of the blood sample.  If you have any question, contact us and we will let you know how to prepare for your blood tests.

A small amount of blood will be drawn by trained staff from a vein in your arm using a needle. The procedure is quick and easy. Rarely, some people may feel faint or dizzy while having the blood taken and you may need to lie down to help you to feel better. The procedure may cause some minor discomfort and a small bruise may develop in the area where the needle was inserted. Press over the site where the needle was inserted, keeping your arm straight to reduce likelihood of bruise formation . If you develop redness or inflammation in the same area, seek your doctor for advice.

A urine sample is required for this test. We can provide you with a container for the sample which should be taken first thing in the morning. Please write your name, date of birth, and date of sample taken on the sample and bring it to us for examination.

A laboratory test result is produced after a scientific analysis done on a sample to assess an individual health status.

An abnormal finding may (but not necessarily) indicate a problem that needs to be addressed. We recommend that any abnormal result should promptly be consulted with your GP. Your doctor will evaluate the test results in the context of an overall clinical picture that takes into consideration your age, gender, ethnicity, family history, signs, symptoms, etc.

Comprehensive Health Screening

The comprehensive health screening panel is a cost-effective package that gives more extensive information about your body and health status. It offers a better and more detailed look at your overall health; it includes the entire set of tests of the basic screening and other specific markers to detect conditions and altered functions of organs usually affecting this specific age group. This package includes:

Complete blood count analyses size, shape, colour and quantity of the white and red cells and the platelets in our blood. A CBC is frequently used to check for anaemia, blood disorders, infection and several other disorders.
Bone minerals: Calcium, magnesium and phosphate are structurally important in bones and teeth. Their measurements help to screen for conditions relating to bones, heart, nerves, muscle, kidneys, intracellular communication and teeth.
• Iron is a mineral used for forming red cells and in the production of proteins. Too much iron can occur in hereditary haemochromatosis.  Lack of iron is associated with iron deficiency anaemia and can be caused by several disease or conditions. Iron is also measured to check general nutritional status. 
• Diabetes screening tests: glucose is the source of energy in our body. Combined measurement of glucose and HbA1c is used to screen, diagnose or monitor glucose levels in blood, prediabetes and diabetes.
• Liver function tests measure the levels of liver enzymes such as alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), bilirubin (total, unconjugated and conjugated) and total proteins with its classes albumin and globulins.
• Kidney function tests are used to screen the kidneys are working properly. It also helps to manage and follow kidney disease. These tests measure the levels of waste products like urea, uric acid and creatinine passed out in the urine, and electrolytes salts like sodium, potassium, chloride that help to keep the fluids and acid/base balance in the body.

Comprehensive Plus Health Screening

The comprehensive plus gives very detailed information about your major body’s organ functions and health status. It gives a good insight of what your baseline is, or what is normal for you for future health and wellness. In addition to the Basic and Comprehensive tests, includes very specific markers that aid in the identification of specific conditions or diseases related to women in this age group. This package includes:
• Complete blood count analyses size, shape, colour and quantity of the white and red cells and the platelets in our blood. A CBC is frequently used to check for anaemia, blood disorders, infection and several other disorders.
• Bone minerals: Calcium, magnesium and phosphate are structurally important in bones and teeth. Their measurements help to screen for conditions relating to bones, heart, nerves, muscle, kidneys, intracellular communication and teeth.
• Iron is a mineral used for forming red cells and in the production of proteins. Lack of iron is associated with iron deficiency anaemia, and is commonly found in people over 55 years old.
• Diabetes screening tests: glucose is the source of energy in our body.  Combined measurement of glucose and HbA1c is used to screen, diagnose or monitor glucose levels in blood, prediabetes and diabetes.
• Liver function tests measure the levels of liver enzymes such as alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), bilirubin (total, unconjugated and conjugated) and total proteins with its classes albumin and globulins.
• Kidney function tests are used to screen the kidneys are working properly. It also helps to manage and follow kidney disease.

• Pancreatic function tests: Amylase and lipase are enzymes secreted by the pancreas and help diagnose and monitor pancreatitis and other pancreatic diseases.
•Thyroid function tests include measurement of the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (FT4) which are important in the control of the body’s metabolism. Its measurement helps test for hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
• Parathyroid hormone measurement helps to evaluate the function of the parathyroid gland and helps to diagnose parathyroid disease and other diseases of calcium homeostasis.
• Vitamin D levels reflect nutritional status, malabsoption or lack of exposure to sunlight. It play a role in  formation and maintenance of healthy bones. E
lderly individuals are at risk of deficiency which may lead to osteomalacia, osteoporosis and has been associated with cancer, heart disease and immune disorders.
• Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by normal, abnormal as well as by cancerous prostate cells. Higher PSA levels can sometimes be a sign of prostate cancer; but often non-cancerous reasons like recent urinary tract infection, infection and injury of prostate, ejaculation or an enlarged prostate (associated with age) can raise PSA levels. PSA is found free and complexed bound to other proteins. The free PSA test measures the percentage of the total PSA that is not bound to proteins. The free PSA/total PSA ratio helps to assess the risk of prostate cancer in patients with borderline or moderately increased total PSA. High total PSA levels and lower percentages of free PSA/total PSA ratio are associated with higher risks of prostate cancer. [-2]proPSA is a pre-mature form and a fraction of free PSA. The combined use of total PSA, free PSA and proPSA is used to calculate and to more accurately assess PCa risk.
• CVD-Inflammation hsCRP identifies low levels of inflammation associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
• Homocysteine is an amino acid which synthesis is dependen on folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. Therefore its levels help to identify vitamin B deficiency often observed in elder population who may absorb less from the diet. High levels of homocysteine identify people at risk for coronary artery disease, heart attacks and strokes even when the traditional risk factors, such as unhealthy lipid levels, are not present. 
• Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is test used to help diagnose conditions .associated with inflammation, including infections, tumours, and autoimmune diseases.
A urinalysis is a set of chemical, microscopic and macroscopic analysis that can detect some common diseases. It may be used to screen for and/or help diagnose conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, liver problems, diabetes or other metabolic conditions.
