Analyses

Many health conditions are latent. That is why blood, urine and stool analysis can detect changes in health and presence of inflammation in the body. Most of the tests we provide at our clinic are quick and comfortable.

To undergo an analysis, turn to our general practitioner or consult with other specialists who assess complaints and prescribe necessary analyses.

Important to know

  • The arrival of the results of the analyses takes from a couple of days to a week.
  • You will be informed of the results after the practitioner who determined the analyses has examined them.
  • The price of the analyses is not contained in the price of the consultation.

Blood analysis

  • The best time to give blood for the analysis is between 8.30–9.30 in the morning.
  • You have to have been awake for at least an hour before giving blood for the analysis. Unless the doctor has advised otherwise, avoid exercising, smoking and using medicaments before giving blood.
  • 12 hours before giving blood, do not consume more than a glass of unflavoured still water.
  • You should sit calmly for 15 minutes before the procedure in order to stabilize the blood circulation.
  • Eating, drinking and chewing gum is not allowed while giving blood for the analysis.
In order to obtain the most important parameters, blood from the veins is needed (as blood from the fingertips can only show signs of inflammation). The procedure is quick and practically painless.

Urine analysis

  • The urine analysis requires the earliest urine sample of the day.
  • The sterile throwaway cups for urine samples are sold in pharmacies. We will not accept any other container since they are not sufficiently sterile.
  • Do not touch the inside of the sample cup or put objects in it.
  • Urinate directly into the cup. Pouring of the liquid from another cup is not allowed.
  • The urine sample should be delivered to the clinic as soon as possible, preferably in two hours time.
You must use the special urine sample cup. You can buy them from pharmacies and from our center.

Allergy tests

  • Food allergy test
    Testing for food allergies shows whether the body is hypersensitive to certain types of food. The main symptoms of food allergy are: nausea, stomach-ache, diarrhea, redness of the skin, rash, difficulty of breathing, itching and swelling of the mucous membrane of the mouth. Food allergy is commonly caused by egg white, milk, wheat, fish, peanuts, soya beans and shellfish or shrimps.
  • Dust allergy test
    When suspecting that you might be allergic to dust, we recommend testing out the most common inhalable allergens: pollen, dust from dust mites and allergens of pets. This enables to determine whether you are hypersensitive to these allergens. In most cases, the sign of hypersensitivity to allergens is the itching of the nose, mouth, throat and eyes, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, red or watery eyes and skin rash. In case of certain allergies, the symptoms might be seasonal.

Vitamins and minerals

Measuring of vitamin and mineral levels

Measuring vitamin and mineral levels shows whether your diet is sufficiently diverse, and whether the consumed amount of food contains enough vitamins and micro-nutrients that are essential for the body.

The results of the analysis give an exact overview of the vitamins the body is lacking. It is often the case that the deficiency of vitamins and micro-nutrients is the reason for the weak immune system, poor condition of nails and hair, heart condition or malfunctions of the endocrine system.

The GP prescribes necessary analyses for measuring vitamin and mineral levels. Test results usually come within a week.

Genetic testing

We provide different genetic testing options for assessing the risk of and hereditary predisposition to diseases. The identification of hereditary predispositions or genetic mutations enables to make the right choices in the prevention of health conditions and diseases.

  • Assessing the hereditary risk of thrombosis »
    Venous thromboembolism (VTE) encompasses deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism that are often caused by the simultaneous occurrence of hereditary risk factors and the ones acquired through life.
  • Identifying hereditary risks for lactose intolerance »
    Lactose intolerance is a widespread metabolic disorder where the body is unable to digest milk sugar or lactose due to the lack of or the absence of lactase enzymes for digestion. Lactose intolerance causes abdominal pain and cramps, wind, abdominal gas and diarrhea.
  • Determining the hereditary predisposition for celiac disease »
    Celiac disease is a chronic intolerance to gluten, where one cannot tolerate foods made out of wheat, rye and barley. The absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by gluten, which results in nutrient absorption disorders such as chronic diarrhea and wasting away.
  • Assessing the hereditary risk factors of obesity »
    The test assesses the hereditary risk factors of obesity and related diseases, including diabetes, hypertension and osteoporosis. With the test, the changes in more than 60 genes related to diseases are analysed. The test includes recommendations for improving your lifestyle, nutrition and exercising habits.
  • DNA paternity testing »
    DNA paternity testing enables to determine whether a man is the biological father of an individual. The test compares the DNA of the presumable father and the child. Although including the mother into the comparison is not required, it increases the reliability of the results.
  • Determining the hereditary predisposition of breast and ovarian cancer »
    Breast cancer is the most common malignant tumour in women. From the standpoint of the efficiency of the treatment of breast cancer, the most important thing is to diagnose the condition early on and ascertain the possible risk factors. The main risk factors of breast cancer are gender, age and hereditary predisposition.

Determining the hereditary predisposition for cancer

Testing for hereditary predisposition for cancer is very important for early detection of cancer and being able to effectively treat it. The cancer gene predisposition test examines all 92 genes that are associated with various cancers. The analysis includes breast and ovarian cancers and the genes associated with lung, colon and prostate cancers. Consult with our geneticist for advice.

We recommend the test if:

  • There is a family history of hereditary cancer
  • The patient or close family member has been diagnosed with cancer at an early age
  • The patient or close family member presents with different forms of cancer at the same time
  • The patient or close family member presents with cancer in a pair of organs (for example, in both lungs or breasts)
  • Several close family members have been diagnosed with the same type of cancer or cancers that are connected to each other (for example, breast and ovarian cancer)
  • A close family member has presented with a form of cancer that is rare (for example, male breast cancer)

A sample of venous blood is necessary for the test. The results will be available within 6-9 weeks.
