Health check-up for 65yo above

Hi, I want my parents to have a general health check-up ano po ba ang mga klase ng checkup na ok sa mga matatanda? they have their regular checkup every quarter is it sufficient enough? I'm looking for a more intensive one. Thank you in advance.

    Hi, I'm a dentist. Please wait for the reply of our volunteer doctors. The first thing you should do is look for a good Internist ( a medical doctor who specializes in Internal Medicine). Your internist can assess your parents and recommend the necessary labs needed for them. Internal Medicine has many subspecialties meaning some Internists are also Cardiologists, Pulmonologists, Hematologists, etc. I honestly don't know if Neurology is still under Internal Medicine or if it is under the Neurosciences ( Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry) perhaps one of our volunteer doctors can chime in on this. :)

    Thank you smilewarrior. I've seen some of executive check up packages on-line sa Lung Center and La Salle Dasma MC.

    High blood ang father at minsan ang mother ko din, hindi naman sila mataba sakto lang katawan nila. Wala naman bisyo ang tatay. Diabetic si nanay ko, at palaging nagpupuyat, sanay sya matulog ng 2-3am eto lang prob namin sa mom ko. They are both taking med for HB and my mom for her diabetes, hindi naman grabe i think minsan tumataas lang ang sugar nya. Ok naman sila sa pagkain like puro fish at vege lang. pag umuuwi lang ako galing abroad dun sila napapakain kasi puro ako treat sa kanila. gusto ko lang macheck lahat ng organs nila kung ok ba, kasi yung kapatid ng tatay ko died from gastric cancer ba un basta sa may tiyan.
