Screening can help to identify early signs of disease or other health issues, enabling early intervention and potentially improving the quality of life.

WOMEN’S HEALTH SERVICES
It might be challenging to determine if you are doing everything you can to maintain your health with so much information available to women about health, body care, and general welfare. Monitoring your health is crucial for spotting any hidden or undiagnosed issues, but it may also bring you peace of mind and offer you more control over your path to better health.
A complete medical exam gives you the chance to learn exactly what is happening in your body and how you may maintain or improve your level of health. Every well woman health check-up will end with a thorough report detailing all findings and any recommendations our experts deem appropriate to assist you in improving or maintaining your present health.
At Dr Stavy’s practice, we understand the complexities of women’s health and are dedicated to providing individually tailored testing, treatment and advice for women of all ages, in an open, friendly and supportive environment.
Other individual tests that we offer at Dr Stavy’s practice:
Allergy – intolerance screening
Blood screening can be used to indicate gluten sensitivity or intolerance to allergens.
The blood tests used include:
- Allergy Profile – can screen for up to 300 allergens
- Tissue Transglutaminase Antibodies (tTG-IgA) – used to test for coeliac disease
Based on your results, the doctor is likely to recommend lifestyle changes.
Vitamin D Screening
Calcium and phosphate, two minerals that support the health of bones, muscles, and teeth, are controlled by vitamin D in the body. Lack of the vitamin can cause rickets, a condition where the mineralization of bone tissue is improper, and other bone abnormalities.
The body’s exposure to sunshine is the best natural source of the vitamin. However, some nations do not receive enough sunlight throughout the year for humans to create the necessary amounts of vitamin D, which can lead to deficiencies. Additional sources include
- Oily fish, such as mackerel, salmon, sardines, herring
- Egg yolks
- Red meat
- Fortified dairy and grains
The most obvious symptoms of deficiency are:
- Bone pain
- Muscle weakness
- Sweating of the scalp
But even if you don’t experience the aforementioned symptoms, you could still be at a higher risk of developing cancer, cardiovascular disease, or autoimmune illnesses.
If you are looking for a specific test, please contact us so we may build your very own testing package based on the tests you either need or wish to have conducted.
