Default Getting full medical and blood test done in Cork ?

Hey Folks.

Want to get a full medical and full blood test done in Cork. I don’t really have a GP. Essentially I want to get everything tested within reason just to make sure I’m 100% and ship shape.

Heard news of a former colleague not much older than myself that got diagnosed with terminal cancer and it’s put the wind up me to go and get myself checked.

Happy Friday !!!

The private places in the elysium or down in blackrock would do this.

Are you looking fora full body scan?

Joking aside, do you check yourself regularily for lumps?

I’ve never checked for lumps, how much is a full body scan likely to cost?

If there is something wrong with me I’d rather know and try and do something about it .

Currently feel 100% though.

Go to a gp and they'll do a full bloods test. Normally get the results back in a week.

been thinking about this myself recently.. no reason as such, feeling good and rarely sick, decent diet and exercise and all that, but no harm to get things checked out I suppose. They're could be something starting that you could combat

... but then they might tell you to give up the red wine

They can tell me all they like. I went for a blood test a year or so ago. High cholesterol says your man. Eat less of this and more of that and....... a month or so later I had a heart scare. Low heart beat not kicking in the old electrical whatyacallit.

Anyway, fuck that says I, back to normal diet. Which is daycent enough anyway. Plenty of red wine and olive oil. Among other things!

My father in law has it spot on - moderation, in moderation

If you have a decent approach to life in general then there is absolutely no harm enjoying yourself either, no point in it b img all of one or the other

I have a gorgeous Chianti Classico Riserva in the go right now having just had a chicken burger and chips with the smallie at the U20 rugby match

Without doubt.Everything within moderation.Treats and sweets are great to have but every now and then only.The problem for us at home is that they become the norm after every dinner at nigh time.So we stopped this Lent(not for religous beliefs but more as an excuse to cut them out)The 11 year old daughter doesn't even ask for them nowadays but can look forward to them at parties or 'special occassions.And you know what?We don't even miss them anymore,not having stuff in the house.Its all a habit and routine really and its a matter of breaking that monotony.

Apparently once you are over 40 you should get the bloods done every year.

It goes without saying that a healthy diet with moderate alcohol consumption and being a non smoker will also help greatly, as will regular Mass attendance and avoiding impure thoughts.

as someone very wise once said - even take moderation in moderation

people obsess when there is no need, all these crazy extremes of doing the dog on it followed by absolute bans. A bit from pot A and a bit from pot B and you'll be grand
