Hello folks,

I wanted to do a full body check-up for my mom coz she sometimes says she’s having some pain in her joints, chest pain and also tiredness..

So I feel it’s d best to go for some check-up where in everything would be clear…

Coming to my question, there are many test on many apps where the price range is starting fr 500-2000 having more than 60-70 tests but what will be beneficial for her at this age of 55 is more important.

So unnecessarily going for more number of tests doesn’t make sense so I just want to know what all test should it conclude for our parents like rbc, blood sugar etc etc…

If anyone has good knowledge about these or if any dimer is a doctor here please do comment. Your efforts will be appreciated. Tag your friends whom you know they can help me in this regard.

Many thanks

Consult a doctor who can give you relevant tests. If not, you can go for aarogyam tests which will cover basic tests for most organs. Any abnormality will be highlighted in it and you can then consult a doctor who can guide you for further tests

Annual colonoscopy is must for elderly people. Consult at Orthopedics department for joint pains. Tests won’t reveal that part. Give aunty calcium rich foods, osteoporosis after menopause is a common health adversary among women, calcium intake ll prevent it. A Doctor can guide you. 🙂 Chest pain n tiredness can mean a lot of things bhai.
Eyes tests are super important. 🙂

Do you know any of the tests that one should include so that we can have a complete idea of the whole picture…

Bhai. I am not a doctor or related to medicine. I request you to visit a doctor for proper advice. 🙂
Normally Blood sugar test, renal function test(electrolyte, urea in blood), thyroid test, haemoglobin test(included in complete blood count test), lipid profile test(cholesterol level in blood) etc will be included in any test package. Again bhai it will vary from patients to patients,as prescribed by a doctor. Pap smear test(at a gynecologist), fundoscopy ( retina test at a reputed Ophthalmologist.). Fundoscopy is a must for people with diabetes. Bad things happen to people, who ignore it. And in old age cataracts form, I mean every old person has cataracts in their eyes, some have mild n some have severe. Blood pressure is the most basic test. High BP ll damage nerves, retina(it makes eyes bleed inside), kidneys etc. 🙂 Check if she is over weight or not. Evening/morning walk might alleviate certain syndromes. Go n seek appointment with a doctor. 🙂 I wish good health for Aunty

But it definitely seems like you some good medical knowledge. Kudos smiley
BP is normal, sugar is under control (I have both kits at home).
Weight is under control and yes she does walk everyday.

I would suggest to do full body checkup lipid profile, kidney,. Liver, thyroid, vitamins , sugar. If you are concerned about joints then you may do bone density test. Based on test results your doctor can order specific tests.
