Basic Cardiac Screening

Prevention is better than cure, and early medical interventions improve your chance against common heart diseases. If you experience chest pain or shortness of breath, should get medical attention immediately. For your complete peace of mind, our Basic Cardiac Screening focuses on detecting the following risk factors:

Cholesterol levels are known to contribute to plaque build-up or atherosclerosis. Screening involves measurement of LDL (bad cholesterol) , HDL (good cholesterol) and Triglycerides.

Diabetes / High Blood Glucose

This is a symptom of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. If detected early, progression to insulin dependency can be prevented.

Hypertension

Stroke / Elevated hsCRP

CRP or C-reactive protein is a substance released in the blood in response to injury or infection. High levels may be related to increased risk of heart attacks or stroke.
