Youth Health Screening Packages

Be healthy for life

Wellness is more than the absence of sickness and feeling well. Staying well is up to you! When you are young, it’s easy to think that sickness and disease will never happen to you. Eating massive amounts of foods loaded with sugar, saturated fats and salt, lack of sleep, little physical activity and stress is leading to soaring incidences of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. To stay well you need to take the necessary steps to prevent illness.

Basic Health Screening

This package evaluates overall health. 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, take adequate changes in lifestyles if necessary and be healthy in the future. This package includes:

Height, weight and body mass index (BMI) calculation.

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.

Diabetes screening tests: glucose is the source of energy in our body.  Glucose measurement in blood is used to screen, diagnose or monitor glucose levels in blood, prediabetes and diabetes. 
Type 1 diabetes is much less common than type 2 diabetes and typically affects younger individuals and the onset of the first symptoms may be fairly abrupt. In youth, Type 2 diabetes incidence is rising significantly. This increase is a consequence of overweight, obesity, unhealthy eating and poor exercise habits among this age group. Other risk factors include having a close relative with the disease and having a birth mother who has diabetes or had gestational diabetes.  Type 2 diabetes doesn’t show early signs or symptoms leading to serious and costly long-term complications. Therefore screening can be useful.

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.

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 finger prick is used for these tests. The procedure usually is quick and easy, although it may cause some minor discomfort and go away shortly after the blood sample has been withdrawn.

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 the 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.

If you want to learn more how the results of your laboratory test help your doctor in understanding your health status, and in providing you with the right treatment; check http://labtestsonline.org, a public resource on lab tests that is produced by AACC, a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to clinical laboratory science and its application to healthcare.

Comprehensive Health Screening

The comprehensive health screening panel gives more information about your current health status and offers you an opportunity to taking the right steps that help your chances for living longer and stay well. This package includes:

Height, weight and body mass index (BMI) calculation.

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.

Diabetes screening tests: glucose is the source of energy in our body. The measurement of glucose  is used to screen, diagnose or monitor glucose levels in blood, prediabetes and diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes accounts for the vast majority of people with diabetes and its incidence in youth has been rising significantly. This increase is a consequence of overweight, obesity, unhealthy eating and poor exercise habits among this age group. Other risk factors include having a close relative with the disease and having a birth mother who has diabetes or had gestational diabetes.  Type 2 diabetes doesn’t show early signs or symptoms leading to serious and costly long-term complications. Therefore screening can be useful.

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

High lipids levels are associated with unhealthy diet, low physical activity, family history, high blood pressure and smoking. If lipids levels are high, they build up in arteries, a process that starts early in life when present, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke in the adulthood. Lipids screening in youth helps to identify individuals at risk of cardiovascular disease in future and allows early intervention when to know if lifestyles changes are necessary to improve lipid levels.
