A regular comprehensive health check-up helps to access your overall health and prevent health issues that are difficult to notice. Doctors would evaluate your state of wellbeing and determine if you have any initial symptoms of a potential illness. Some diseases can be very subtle without any sign or symptom until they worsen to a certain level. Regular health check-up can effectively reduce the chance of delay in diagnosis and treatment, especially for those with unhealthy lifestyle or family history of disease.
Doctors generally recommend further evaluation such as blood sugar, lipid profiles, ECG and chest x-ray, based on age, gender, health status, family health background, lifestyle and clinical examination like weight, height, blood pressure and heart rate. During the health check-up, samples such as blood, saliva, urine or feces would be collected and sent to laboratories for further testing and investigation.
