Dubai-based Healthcare Group Offers AED 1 per Day Master Check-ups

Residents can avail of a comprehensive test package that runs diagnostic tests on at least 70 body functions, including their hormone profile, vitamin profile, lipid profile, dental, and eye check-up to name a few.

These services, however, aren’t offered in Abu Dhabi yet. “In Dubai, the service is offered at NMC healthcare clinics in Al Khail Mall, Satwa, and Jafza,” an NMC official shared. “Since this is a preventive health check-up package, the cost will not be covered by the patient’s insurance policy,” the official added.

According to Dr Pari Pulate, a general surgeon with the NMC Healthcare networks: “We’re living in a world where lifestyle diseases are on the rise. Most people only run diagnostic tests when they have symptoms or feel unwell. A very small percentage of the population runs preventive health checks. That needs to change.”

He added that there have been a high number of people coming into hospitals with thyroid issues, fluctuating blood pressure, and diabetes when the diseases have already reached more dangerous levels.

A preventive health check-up empowers residents to make the correct health choices. They are armed with data. Instead of taking medications for diabetes, residents can make a few lifestyle changes and bring their condition under control,” he shared.

The package also includes a free doctor’s consultation which can be followed up by a second consultation. Test results are handed over to the patients as well. An executive category of the package, priced at AED 665, offers diagnostics tests for up to 84 parameters.

This amounts to Dh 2 per day per year. Patients can test for their cardiac risk markers, arthritis profile, liver profile, renal profile, electrolytes profile, and iron deficiency,” said Dr. Pulate. However, the basic package is also quite comprehensive.

He pointed out that such tests are also helpful for those who are on dependent visas and do not have medical insurance but want to take care of their health.

The health parameters covered in the packages include:

  • Hormone profile
    • Testosterone, triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone)
  • Vitamin profile
    • Calcium, uric acid, blood urea nitrogen, serum creatinine, BUN/ creatinine ratio
