Health check ups
A regular health check up is important, for adults as well as for children. They can prevent diseases or detect illnesses before it is too late to change their course. First of all, a healthy life style and eating habits are of the importance here. But a health check once in a while or on a regular base can help keeping you healthy.
Health check ups – our advice
IHCR advises anyone older than 50 years to consider a health check. In this way our GPs can screen for medical conditions that may otherwise become chronic. An early detection and treatment of illnesses to help you maintain a healthy mind, body and quality of life. Our GPs can provide general health checks and screen for cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol. Also sleep and mental health related problems can be detected in an early stage with a health check up.
When should I start with health check ups?
For adults above 50 years old we advise an anual check up, for adults below this age a health check every 3 to 5 years should do. A children’s health check is not really necessary, except for risk groups. So we do recommend children with an underlying health condition or a weakened immune system to have a check up once in a few years.

Preventive medical check
A health check up, or preventive medical check, can be carried out by one of our GPs on site. The check includes:
- urine testing
- extensive blood testing
- blood pressure measurements
- a BMI-check (length, weight and waist measurements)
- an ECG (electrocardiogram)
If necessary, the check up will be followed by other tests, like a MRI-scan or a long function test. Also the GP can decide to refer you to a specialist.
