Niggles, worries, anything you want to discuss. Don’t be shy.
Depression, anxiety, stress. It’s such a big area and we’ll give you time to chat about it.
The biggest killer in men. So, we look at lifestyle factors, family history, symptoms, sleep, exercise diet and nutrition. We measure blood pressure, pulse, heart sound, perform an ECG, and carry out blood tests for cholesterol, testosterone, diabetes and pre-diabetes.
We’ll look at core health markers such as anaemia, immunity, kidney and liver function. And we’ll do it properly, investigating any underlying causes.
Prostate health and the renal system.
Checking urine for protein and blood for markers of kidney disease. We measure BP and test PSA and calcium levels. Not your standard PSA test, but a complete prostate and urinary system check-up.
Not the old fashioned finger-prick blood test for glucose. We use an HBA1c blood test which can pick up early markers of diabetes years before you get symptoms.
And we go further. Type 2 diabetes is also an indicator of ‘metabolic syndrome’. Putting men at risk of stroke, heart attack, kidney disease, peripheral vascular disease, fatty liver disease, and other problems. So, we’ll assess for this, looking at cardiac risk, blood pressure, cholesterol, HBA1c, renal function, lifestyle, bodyweight, BMI, percentage fat, etc.
This is our speciality. Low testosterone and erectile dysfunction. And we do it in a way that doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable.
No matter what health check you do, you cannot screen for all cancers. Even a ‘full body MRI’ would miss some. Instead, we screen for those we can look out for – prostate cancer and bowel cancer. Suggesting preventative measures to reduce the risk.
