Stressful life, irregular eating habits, unhealthy lifestyle? Do you have a burning sensation in your stomach? Targeted, one-day of gastrointestinal preventive examination is intended for all who wish to have an examination which focused on gastroenterological testing.
The examination consists of:
Targeted lab testing
- Complete blood count
- Biochemical tests: liver function indicators (AST, ALT, GGT, ALP, bilirubin), blood sugar, iron, blood lipid profile (triglycerides and cholesterol), pancreatic tests (amylase, lipase).
With the above analyses we define the complete blood count, the functioning of the liver and pancreas, and evaluate the levels of iron, glucose and cholesterol in the blood.

Gastroenterological examinations and diagnostics
Gastroscopy: 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.
Colonoscopy: 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.
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.
Gastroenterological check-ups are performed at pre-arranged dates at our Ljubljana subsidiary, where ambulatory examinations are performed and patients prepare for the examination by themselves at home, while it is also possible to arrange a hospital examination in Bled.
