Full Blood Examination
Looks for thalassaemia, anaemia due to iron deficiency or Vitamin B12 deficiency, bacterial or viral infection, inflammation and platelet (blood clotting) disorders.

Liver Function Test
Looks for signs of damage due to viral or alcoholic hepatitis, drugs or herbs, fat infiltration, tumours and bile duct blockage.

Renal Function Test
Looks for signs of damage caused by kidney stones, drugs and herbs, cancers, cysts and urinary tract infections.

Diabetic Screen
Measures the glucose level to exclude diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose metabolism.

Lipid Studies
Measures total cholesterol and triglycerides as well as the HDL (good cholesterol) and LDL (bad cholesterol) subunits. High cholesterol has been shown to be a risk factor in coronary heart disease (CHD).

Urine Test
Looks at a urine sample to check for urinary tract infections and blood and protein from the urinary tract.

RPR (STD Test)
Tests for exposure to the Syphilis pathogen, Treponema palladium. Untreated syphilis begins to damage the internal organs, including the brain, nerves, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, bones, and joints. In about one-third of untreated persons, this internal damage shows up many years later in the late or tertiary stage of syphilis.

Blood Group
Determines the blood group type. A personalised blood group card is provided.

Rheumatoid Factor
Used to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and to distinguish it from other forms of arthritis and other conditions that cause similar symptoms of joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness.

Thyroid Screen
Checks the function of the thyroid gland to exclude an overactive or underactive gland. Some symptoms include weakness, sleeping difficulty, heartbeat sensations, hair loss, cold intolerance and weight gain/loss.

Hepatitis B Screen
Checks to see if the Hepatitis B virus is in the body and/or if there is immunity to the virus. If there is no immunity, immunisation shots can be administered.
