Customer:

hi - he has been to a doctor recently but not about this and no tests have been done. He is very keen to have a full check up on his health and we feel he could do with losing weight - is there a well mans clinic that you would recommend.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

There is no man's clinic. The best thing to do is to go to the GP and request all the tests done.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

He requires routine blood tests of the blood.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Blood tests including complete blood count and a comprehensive metabolic profile.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Along with that you can request a thyroid hormone profile because one of the causes of weight gain could be low thyroid hormones.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you should request these tests and, if normal, this would mean that he is pretty much healthy with his liver and kidneys working fine.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Also his blood counts normal.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So I would like that he should have these routine tests done.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

yes thank you - we shall make an appt and go back to his GP.
