London Breast Care Centre offers vitals home checkups

MANAMA, 16 days ago

London Breast Care Centre (LBCC), one of Bahrain's leading multi-disciplinary wellness clinics, has introduced a new service that allows customers to receive checkups for core vitals and vitamins at the comfort of their home. 
 
The Vital Home service is aimed at patients who are unable to visit the hospital, or for whom is it unsafe to do so, especially during the current pandemic.
 
A consultant GP, who will adhere to strict sanitisation practices, will visit the patient and test for all essential vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin D, B12, and Iron as well as blood pressure, pulse, and respiratory rate, and red and white blood cell count. Specialised tests are also offered for diabetes, hydration, thyroid, and liver functions.
 
LBCC Chief Surgeon and Proprietor Dr. Sara Al Reefy said: “LBCC is well reputed for its early detection campaigns and state-of-the-art mammogram and ultrasound tests for breast cancer diagnoses. However, given the current circumstances, we have added this basic home health care package to serve people for whom visiting a hospital is no longer the best option, such as those who are immunocompromised, elderly, bedridden, have mobility issues, or simply want to avoid crowds as a precaution.”
 
She added: “Regular checkups are an important preventative health measure and help to fight the onset of disease. For instance, irregularities in white blood cells can be a sign of immune deficiencies, and if we spot this early on, we can help prevent illnesses from occurring.”
 
Dr. Al Reefy also warns of Vitamin D deficiencies that may have set in due to people not leaving their homes as much as before. “Due to our hot climate, we tend to avoid the sun, and given the current situation, many of us have not been leaving the house as much as before, which can cause increased Vitamin D deficiency. Moreover, women are often deficient in Vitamin B12, which causes mood instability. Such deficiencies can be treated easily if detected early on,” she said. - TradeArabia News Service
