Wellness Testing Vs. Check-Up

Back then, medical efforts more likely focused on the curative medication rather than the preventive one. Today, patients are invited to actively take a role in maintaining their own health, seek to improve their own wellness, and consider themselves as a partner of health professionals in making decision about their own health.

Wellness is defined as a process to have a good life, positive mind, optimum physical and psychological health, balanced social life, and controlled disease risk factors or minimum bad health conditions.

Wellness is a dynamic, sustainable system. The highest level of wellness, or can be called the 'optimal health' , is when all dimensions work in more integrated way.

Our environments (such as, workplace, school, home, and neighborhood) and wellness dimensions including physical, emotional, intellectual, occupational, spiritual, and social dimensions are in harmony with each other.

What is wellness testing?

Inspired by the idea that prevention is better than cure, Prodia Clinical Laboratory, as a leader in the field of laboratory analysis, introduces a wellness testing as part of the preventive strategy.

The wellness testing is a group of tests useful to identify the risk of disease development as early as possible, even before the disease shows up. At the early stage, disease development can be prevented. The wellness testing is designed to avoid the high cost medication incurred due to the illness and its fatal consequences in the future.

Wellness Testing Vs. Check-Up

The check-up known so far is a set of minimum laboratory tests conducted to figure out any disorders or diseases. The diseases discussed here are those commonly found in society, with indefinite symptoms and fatal consequences, communicable, and deferrable or preventable by medical check-ups.

Unlike a general medical check-up, which is taken by healthy people, the wellness testing is recommended for those at high risk or suspected of experiencing disease development in order to allow identification of the risk of early complication.
