Target laboratory analyses

BLOOD ANALYSIS: sample collection, haemogram with a differential blood count, sedimentation, hepatogram – liver condition indicators (AST, ALT, GGT, AF, bilirubin), blood sugar – glucose, lipid profile – blood fats (cholesterols, HDL, LDL, triglycerides), thyroid hormone TSH.

Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy in an endoscopic examination of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum.

The modern pace of life and eating habits also affect the functioning of the upper gastrointestinal tract and contribute to a more frequent occurrence of inflammation and ulcers in the mucous membrane of the stomach and duodenum, and increasingly so, also in the oesophagus.

At the request of the patient, endoscopic examination at Diagnostični center Bled may be performed under analgosedation for additional fee.

Biopsy and detection of Helicobacter Pylori bacteria in the sample

Colonoscopy using MoviPrep

Colonoscopy in an endoscopic examination of the colon and a part of the small intestine.

The frequency of the cancer of the colon and rectum has increased rapidly in the recent years. Over 1400 patients per year gets sick in Slovenia, causing the disease to rank as the second most common cancer in men and third in women.

The most common discovery in colonoscopy are polyps. Over the years, these growths might develop in colon cancer. Often the polyps are detected at preventive health checks when they do not yet cause any problems. During the examination they are removed, which significantly reduces the risk of developing cancer.

About

Why is gastroenterological checkup so important?

In almost a third of patients examined with gastroscopy we discover gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), in which proper nutrition and timely medication are very important for improving their quality of life.
Due to the increasing incidence of colon cancer, whose incidence in both genders is third among all carcinoma types, it is very important to screen for precancerous changes (polyps) in the colon. Every year more than 1,400 patients in Slovenia develop colon cancer. In more than 95 per cent it develops from a precancerous polyp, so we try to find these growths and promptly remove them. Due to these facts, colonoscopy is a recommended part of preventive health checks in subjects over age 45.
