    Full body checkup

    Just want to ask for those who have undergone a full body checkup, you know the yearly physical checkup, how much does it cost? i'm thinking of doing one but i'm not too sure with the cost involved. Dont want to go into a hospital can be shocked with a huge bill

    It depends what is covered and if you have to stay overnite and depends on hospital.

    I read some where that SJMC is the most expensive but dunno lar.

    I did mine 1 1/2 years ago which include checking my heart on the treadmill... some cardiogram, ultrasound (see if I got baby ) to see if got any stone, dilate my eyes to see if any rosak nerve, full blood check, 24 hours blood pressure monitor, etc. That easily cost a few thousand for 2D2N stay but lucky company covers . They call it Executive Health Screening or sumthing... for staff over 40 y.o.

    If you are healthy or think you are, go for the full blood test at pathlab or the one along Stand Chart bank in taipan.... that will tell you where might go wrong Go to a eye doctor to check you eyes if you have eyes problem

    If you are overweight, I suggest u go to the one I did at Pantai MC or elsewhere at least once every few years. (Keep the receipt. Can deduct Income tax )

    Good Luck in your results

    Thanks for the advice franky. If i'm not mistake, can only deduct up to RM500 for health check. anyway i usually do a blood test every year with pathlab but i'm think its not enough, wanna do a comprehensive one every few years... but 2 K is way way out of budget since this will have to come out of my pocket but i'm thinking, since you are above 40, the test is more comprehensive than is normal, btw i'm 30... anyone have cheaper priced ones?

    I did mine at BP Lab at Taipan last month, it costs RM500, there is another package which costs RM350, but this package excludes the tests on Antibody for HIV, Hepatitis A & B and etc. It is less costly & faster compared to the one I did at the medical centre three years ago.

    I went for an Executive Screening Profile at Darul Ehsan Medical Centre (DEMC) last year, it cost me RM350, mainly becuase I didn't choose the package that includes the Stress Test (the running on threadmill thing). If you choose the package with stress test, the cost is like RM500-700 if I'm not mistaken.

    If got budget... then

    Go and talk to medical center. YOu can pick and choose your screening..... do one or two types each year

    Alternatively, Spend your money going to a gym and eat healthy

    I hope you would not get into trouble with this " advertisement" as the Hospital or clinics is not suppose to solicit for business. Getting the Banana from the MMA for the breach of conduct could be embarrassing for Gleneagles Medical Center. Perhaps the rules have change.
    Nevertheless, while it is good to have check up for underlying causes and symptoms, it pays to prevention is better than cure for many people to look into healthy life style like dieting and exercise.
    Meanwhile, I need a full body check up too - Whoosh - I am going to have my body aches from head to toes check up with massage specialists.

    I dont think we need to question his sincerity especially of his death of next of kin, its very personal and emotional.

    I'm just looking at logic here, since he had been a registered member since 2008, and did not just joined to advertise, but instead share his experience and some advise and his personal experience as well. Which in my pov, feel its a okay.
