About the research
Preventive testings are the only way to ensure the health of our body. Sometimes it happens that developing diseases do not cause any symptoms in the initial stages. In this case, the detection of abnormalities in basic tests can speed up further diagnosis and start treatment, which will prevent the occurrence of unpleasant complications.
Early diagnosis of health disorders is especially important in case of children. The complex of diagnostic screenings ""Healthy Child"" allows you to get detailed information about the child's physical condition, helps to diagnose infections (usually of the respiratory system), nutritional deficiency, exclude diseases of the bone, digestive and urinary systems.
The aim of the research
The test complex is recommended for every parent who wants to make sure that their child is developing correctly. It is recommended to carry out a preventive examination of the child's health at least once a year to monitor child’s health and detect some nutritional deficiencies, civilization and chronic diseases in early stages. Abnormal results may require further diagnosis or lifestyle changes, mainly regarding the child's diet and physical activity.
In addition, with the appearance of symptoms that may indicate diseases of various organs and systems, every child must be examined:
- with worrying gastrointestinal symptoms (such as decreased appetite, weight loss, abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation)
- with symptoms of anemia, most often due to a lack of iron in food (pale skin, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, shortness of breath)
- with symptoms of a respiratory infection (sore throat, cough, fever)
- with symptoms of a urinary tract infection (change in appearance, smell of urine, frequency, painful urination, abdominal pain)
- if metabolic disorders are suspected, most often diabetes (increased thirst, appetite with weight loss, frequent urination, dry mouth, drowsiness)
- if a parasitic infection is suspected (nervousness, restlessness and strong movements, insomnia, change in the appearance of the stool)
- generally weak, susceptible to infections, less active, lethargic, malnourished, with reduced tolerance to physical exertion,
- with pains in bones, muscles, joints, growth retardation.
Parental monitoring of the child is crucial. Even minor changes in the child's behavior, activity, and nutrition should raise vigilance and should not be ignored, because the child cannot always describe and tell about their symptoms.
