Dr. Khaosan offers comprehensive health screens and consultation, are an important method of identifying your current health needs and avoiding future risk and a wide range of health checkups and annual check-up programmes.
What Health Check-Ups Should I Have Done?
We understand that knowing which health check-ups/ health screenings are recommended for you can be a confusing and almost intimidating matter.
If you are unsure, we can recommend which checkup tests are recommended and design a personalised health check-up plan for you.
If you already know exactly which health check-up tests you would like, you can proceed directly to see the Nurse (if you would prefer) and the results will be sent directly to you.
Results are almost always sent directly to you by email within 4 to 24 hours after the consultation.
Preventing Urgent Condition
PrEP VS PEP
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is when people at very high risk for HIV take HIV medicines daily to lower their chances of getting infected. PrEP can stop HIV from taking hold and spreading throughout your body. It is highly effective for preventing HIV if used as prescribed, but it is much less effective when not taken consistently.
Daily PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by more than 90%. Among people who inject drugs, it reduces the risk by more than 70%. Your risk of getting HIV from sex can be even lower if you combine PrEP with condoms and other prevention methods.
PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.
PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV. If you think you’ve recently been exposed to HIV during sex or through sharing needles and works to prepare drugs or if you’ve been sexually assaulted, talk to your health care provider or an emergency room doctor about PEP right away.
Emergency pills refers to methods of contraception that can be used to prevent pregnancy after sexual intercourse. These are recommended for use within 3 days but are more effective the sooner they are used after the act of intercourse.
Leg and foot swelling after prolonged travel
The estimated risk of VTE conferred by prolonged travel by air or land (eg, car, train, bus) is variable (increased approximately two- to fourfold). The highest risk is reported in those who spend longer periods of time traveling.
