Chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, etc develop over time. Detecting the warning signs for an impending condition or illness can lower the risks of the disease and create a better outcome following management. Durdans Health Screening Packages are designed keeping the above aspects in mind.
Risk factors and symptoms of non-communicable diseases are not always visible or felt. For example, an individual may not feel that they are in a pre-diabetic state. Identification through laboratory testing may be possible. The individual can be motivated to make lifestyle changes that can lower the risks.
Comprehensive Health Screening at Durdans Hospital is aimed at preserving an individual’s health and are designed to screen risk factors, signs and symptoms for multiple non communicable diseases simultaneously, e.g., a Dexa Scan can assess the health of bones and assess the risk of having a fracture. Following which, remedial measures can be suggested.
An array of screening or diagnostic health screening packages are available at the Durdans Executive Wellness Centre. Health Screening is designed to meet the personalised needs of individuals. There are 4 screening packages each with a differing range of tests that are designed to look into different aspects of health in a holistic manner.
The Executive Wellness Centre, located on the 3rd floor, is a comprehensive screening facility where individuals and families receive a superior and convenient service. Dr. Shreen Willatgamuwa, Resident Family Physician at Durdans Hospital is available for a free consultation to all individuals, where their personal and family history, daily activities, habits, etc will be discussed in order to advice on the appropriate screening package and additional investigations if required.
The suggested investigations differ according to the gender. In addition some tests have a validity period making the previous test date important.
Dr. Willatgamuwa says, “The consultation is important in the health screening process to customise the most suitable health screening package and other relevant tests.” Following the screening, the results will be interpreted along with a complete physical examination. A referral will be done if needed. It is important that the client goes to their own doctor(s) for follow up services.
As Heart Disease and Diabetes are leading concerns for many Sri Lankans, Good Heart Good Health Screening Packages and Diabetes Screening Packages are available. Both men and women can choose a suitable package to get an assessment of their health status. The choice of the Cardiologist/ Endocrinologist remains with the patient.
