Consultation with Internist
|Initial consultation to take your medical history and carry out an examination to assess the general health and detect key indicators for potential health issues.
After all tests are completed, a further consultation is undetrtaken to discuss the results with you, identify potential diseases and give recommendations and prescriptions if needed.
Consultation with Endocrinologist
|Endocrinology is a specialist of medicine, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses related to hormones. Endocrinology also focuses on the endocrine glands and tissues that secrete hormones.
Endocrinology covers such human functions as the coordination of metabolism, respiration, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement.
Some of the most common diseases and disorders that endocrinologists manage are diabetes, thyroid disorders, and infertility.
Consultation with Neurologist
|Neurology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The neurologist treats disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and epilepsy.
Consultation with Cardiologist
|Cardiologists diagnose and treat diseases or conditions of the heart and blood vessels—the cardiovascular system, such as CVD.
Blood pressure measurement
|Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels. Low blood pressure can be due to many reasons, including illness. Naturally low blood pressure doesn't usually need to be treated unless it's causing symptoms such as dizziness or recurrent falls. Often the cause of high blood pressure is unknown, but several factors can increase the risk of developing the condition. In some cases, high blood pressure can be due to an underlying health condition. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to wide variety of mild to severe complications such as heart attack or stroke, aneurysm, heart failure, organ insufficiency, vision loss.
Resting ECG (Electrocardiogram)
|An electrocardiogram measures the electrical activity of the heart. It provides information for the heart functioning and can detect different heart diseases such as myocardial infarction, heart failure and heart rhythm disorder.
Thorax (chest) X-ray
|Chest X-rays produce images of the heart, lungs, blood vessels, airways, and the bones of the chest and spine. It can reveal fluid in or around the lungs or air surrounding a lung. The image helps determine whether the patient has heart problems, a collapsed lung, pneumonia, broken ribs, emphysema, tuberculosis, cancer, or any of several other conditions.
General blood tests:• Blood test (erythrocytes, leukocytes, haemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets)
• White blood cell differential
• Blood sedimentation rate
|By checking the types and numbers of cells in the blood, this test can give an indication of the overall health condition of the body. The test can also provide important clues about the presence of certain health issues such as acute and chronic infections, inflammatory diseases, blood cancer and cancer in other localisations, anaemia, allergies, parasitic and other diseases and other health conditions. Blood tests also can help find potential problems early, when treatments or lifestyle changes may work best.
|It is an indicator for diabetes, a life-long disease that affects the way your body handles glucose, a kind of sugar, in your blood. If not managed successfully it can lead to wide variety of secondary diseases, most common being: heart disease and stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage, amputations, vision loss.
General cholesterol level:• Bad cholesterol (LDL)
• Good cholesterol (HDL)
|Abnormal values of these tests indicates increased risk of atherosclerosis, that is a condition in which plaque builds up inside the arteries and may partially or totally block the blood's flow through an artery in the heart, brain, pelvis, legs, arms or kidneys, hence it can lead to development of diseases that include coronary heart disease, angina, carotid artery disease, peripheral artery disease and chronic kidney disease as well as myocardial infarction and cerebral attack.
Thyroid gland function test:• Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
• Microsomic thyroid antibodies (MAAK)
|Thyroid hormones (T4 and T3) are produced by the thyroid gland and are regulated by TSH made by the pituitary gland in the brain. These hormones affect every cell and all the organs of the body.
Microsomes are found inside thyroid cells. The body produces antibodies to microsomes when there has been damage to thyroid cells.
The tests evaluate thyroid function, serve as early markers of thyroid diseases and may help diagnose the cause of the thyroid problems, including Hashimoto thyroiditis. They are also used to find out if an immune or autoimmune disorder is damaging the thyroid. Complications linked to hyperthyroidism include irregular heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation), congestive heart failure, miscarriage, osteoporosis and bone fractures (hyperthyroidism causes your bones to lose calcium faster than usual).
Aspartate transminase (AST) and Alanine transminase (ALT) blood tests
|Both AST and ALT levels, as well as their ratio, can test for liver or other organs diseases or damage. High levels can indicate conditions like hepatitis or cirrhosis, heart attack or heart failure, kidney or lung damage, mononucleosis, muscular dystrophy, some types of cancer.
Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) blood test
|GGT is an enzyme found in a high level in the liver, kidney, pancreas, heart, and brain. It is also found in lesser amount in other tissues. Some of the conditions leading to increased GGT level are alcohol use, diabetes, liver diseases and tumours, lung diseases, heart failure, pancreas disease.
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) blood test
|ALP is a protein found in all body tissues, being in higher amount in those of the liver, bile ducts, and bone. The test is performed to diagnose liver or bone disease. Abnormal results may be due to some conditions, among them: biliary obstructions, bone conditions, liver diseases or hepatitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, leukaemia, lymphoma.
Total bilirubin and direct bilirubin
|This test may be used to help determine the cause of jaundice and/or help diagnose conditions such as liver disease (hepatitis), gallbladder disorders, blood diseases (hemolytic anaemia), and blockage of the bile ducts.
|Creatinine has been found to be a fairly reliable indicator of kidney function. Elevated creatinine level signifies impaired kidney function.
General urine test
|A urine test checks different components of the urine and provides information about the general body condition, as well as potential problems. The test is commonly used to diagnose a urinary tract or kidney infection, to evaluate causes of renal failure, to screen for progression of some chronic conditions such as diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure (hypertension).
