Our Health Assessment Premium Senior is for customers aged 70 or over. It includes an extended test package with more analyses and more time with the physician. The health assessment is completed over two visits and has the same basic content as the Health Assessment Premium. Find out more about the extended blood tests for seniors below.
You’ll see one of our nurses, who will check your vision at long and short distances, hearing, lungs, ECG, blood pressure, weight, height, visceral fat (height of stomach), blood and urine. We’ll also check intraocular pressure and analyse your stools for the presence of blood. You’ll then complete a healthcare questionnaire, and this plus your test results will provide your physician with the information he or she needs on your next visit. Your visit to the nurse will last approximately 40 minutes.
Your second appointment is with your physician, who will go through your questionnaire and test results with you. He or she will also conduct a physical examination, after which you both will sum up your health status. Depending on the outcome, you might have to discuss and plan a follow-up. Your physician’s appointment will take approximately 60 minutes.
If you’re over 70, we recommend an assessment every year. If you have regular health assessments, either through your company or privately, you’ll have access to our nursing advice line all year round. When necessary, you can renew prescriptions, make an appointment with a physician or get support from our Health Advice Centre.
Your assessment will be completed over two visits and has the same basic content as the Health Assessment Premium, but with extended testing and more time with the physician.

How long do I have to fast for beforehand?
At least 6 hours. You may, however, drink water, black tea and black coffee without sugar.
Why do I have to fast?
Your health assessment involves testing the levels of certain substances in your blood, such as sugar and fats, so the readings might be irregularly high if you have just eaten.
I forgot to fast. Is there any point me turning up?
Yes, we can still do the tests, although some of the readings might need to be checked at your appointment with the physician.
Why do I have to complete a health questionnaire?
The questionnaire asks about your medical history and lifestyle, adding valuable information to the test data for your appointment with the physician.
