At Apples+ Sense, we don’t just give you “comprehensive tests” — you get answers. Tell us what’s on your mind; whether it is stress, medication, nutrition, mood, sex life or family health issues - next to nothing is off the table. Asking questions and raising concerns is the first vital step in guiding your health care provider to understand what is important to you and what they should screen you for.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty, for otherwise we shall not be able to trim the lamp of wisdom, and keep our mind strong and clear. Water surrounds the lotus flower, but does not wet its petals” Buddha
We believe that good healthcare is driven by a continuous process of diet, exercise, relaxation and stimulation, supported by regular health check-ups to ensure any concerns are investigated, diagnosed and treated at an early stage. We have designed an affordable medical package, which can be further tailored to meet your lifestyle needs.

Please do not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours before beginning your program
You will have a consultation with our General Practitioner prior to any testing to discuss any health issues you may have and any past medical history relevant to you and your family. This will help us identify the right package for you.
You will have a consultation with our General Practitioner to discuss the results of the tests and how they affect you. The doctor will be able to give you advice on any medical abnormalities that may have been found as well as help guide you towards a healthier, happier lifestyle.
Blood pressure screening is one of the most important screening tests because Hypertension usually has no symptoms and may not be detected without measurement. Hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke and heart disease among others.
BMI is short for body mass index and is a ratio of your height and weight. It is an approximate parameter for establishing a healthy weight range according to your height. Being overweight or underweight carries along significant health risks that can be addressed when the BMI is calculated.
Full haemogram is a group of tests performed on a blood sample that broadly screens an individual’s general health status. The tests include white and red blood cell counts, haemoglobin and platelet counts. The doctor uses the results in the diagnosis of conditions such as anaemia, infection, inflammation or bleeding disorders and in monitoring the effectiveness of some treatments on the blood cells.
Diabetes lurks silently in the background, initially manifesting itself with subtle symptoms. Diabetes has great impact on all facets of your health and well-being. Due to the increasing prevalence of diabetes in Kenya, screening for diabetes is important. Diabetes can be managed well if caught early enough to avoid the complications that may arise as a result. We test your blood for elevated sugars that may indicate poor sugar control and enable early intervention.
The kidneys filter blood by removing the waste products of metabolism and ensure electrolyte balance in the body. They are critical in the production of vitamin D, red blood cells and hormones that regulate blood pressure. Hypertension and the medication used to treat it particularly affects this organ system. Appropriate monitoring during treatment of hypertension allows potentially serious underlying conditions to be identified and adverse events avoided.
Evaluation of kidney function is done with blood and urine tests to show how well the kidneys are functioning. These tests also detect specific disease processes and help determine whether the kidneys are responding to treatment.
Liver cells have enzymes that carry out a wide range of chemical reactions such as the metabolism of nutrients, detoxification and production of clotting proteins amongst others.
We check how well the liver is functioning by evaluating the liver for injury, infection, or inflammation.
Urinalysis is the physical, chemical, and microscopic examination of urine. It involves a number of tests to detect and measure various compounds that pass through the urine. This test is done on a urine sample to screen for metabolic and kidney disorders and urinary tract infections (UTIs). It detects the by-products of normal and abnormal metabolic processes, cells, cellular fragments and bacteria in urine.
Stool analysis give us information on the components of digestion, absorption, intestinal function and microbial flora, as well as identifying infectious bacteria, parasites and yeasts or cancer. It helps in distinguishing the types of bacteria and other microbes that may be infectious and those that are normal.
Lipids are an important part of the living cell. They contain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen but have less oxygen than carbohydrates and are source of energy to the body. Cholesterol and triglycerides are examples of lipids in the blood. For circulation, lipids bind with proteins to form high-density (HDL) and low-density (LDL) lipoproteins. Lipid disorders are characterized by high levels of HDL or LDL, cholesterol or elevated levels of triglycerides.
Due to the current modern diet with fried foods, the lipid profile is important for the monitoring off all these levels and to assess the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Nutritional Health Screening
Vitamin D3 is essential in keeping bones healthy and strong. It is important to test for as you get older.
Cancer is a leading cause of death. Cancers are characterized by abnormal cells division without control and invasion of other tissues by these cells through the blood and lymph systems. Breast, ovarian, cervical, bowel and lung cancer are the most common types of cancer in women. Lung, prostate, colorectal, stomach, and liver cancer are the most common types of cancer in men. Early detection, accurate diagnosis, and effective treatment, including pain relief and palliative care, help increase cancer survival rates and reduce suffering.
Tumor markers are substances that are found at higher than normal levels in the blood, urine, or body tissue of some people with cancer. Although cancer cells often produce tumor markers, other healthy cells in the body may also produce them. High tumor markers levels can be a sign of cancer. Along with other tests, tumor markers tests can help in diagnosis of cancer and in planning treatment. We will test for prostate cancer markers in men and ovarian cancer markers in women.
A PAP Smear test involves gathering a sample of cells from the cervix. A pathologist can identify abnormal cells, which may be pre-cancerous or cancerous. The best time to schedule for a PAP smear test is at least 5 days after the end of your menstrual period.
The prostate is a small organ found adjacent to the bladder. In most men the prostate grows large with age and causes great discomfort. As such, the doctor will perform a rectal exam and schedule you for an prostate scan. This will help us visualize the prostate to see if there is any pathology present. This combined with PSA levels will help assess the overall health of the prostate.
