As rightly Malala Yousafzai has said, “Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.” The health and wellbeing of the children are one of the most important factors for any country to have a stable and strong. Typically the journey of a healthy child begins as a healthy baby.
In fact, the health and care of an infant are usually carried out in several hospitals. However, once the child crosses the infancy line, the growing years become susceptible to several infections adding potential medical harm.
Thankfully, most of them are cured with the help of medical treatment. But, the stress, time, money and energy spend for the same can be reduced significantly with proper planning of the future.
Keeping these factors in mind, ILS Hospitals offer a unique health checkup package specifically designed for the needs of the children. It is called the child health checkup package. It has the following screening,
- Blood sugar- Fasting
- Complete hemoglobin profiles with ESR
- Urine routine examination
- Stool routine examination
- Eye screening
- ENT screening
- Dental screening
- ABO grouping and Rh factor
With this package, a consultation with the pediatrician is complementary. The pediatrician helps the family of the ward to understand the report of the diagnosis. Also, they segregate the health factors that need immediate attention from the other, which can be assured to be harmless for a long period of time.
In case any serious trouble is shown in the report, proper care in terms of cure and treatment can be availed to the child. This will not only reduce the treatment procedure and time, but will also mitigate several other risk factors associated with it for the future.
To illustrate this point, let’s assume a child lives in pre-diabetic state for roughly 5-7 years before belonging to the diabetic category. By monitoring the blood sugar profile from time to time, not only it can be delayed but it can also be mitigated. Timely measures make a huge difference for almost all the diseases.
It is extremely beneficial and also affordable for most of the families. Doctors recommend to take this checkup at least once every year to be on the safe side. In case any deflection form normal is diagnosed, prompt steps can be taken to address the problem.
