HOSPITAL SHARP MAZATLAN through our Medical Check-up Unit offers you the possibility to examine your health status considering your risk symptoms and facilitating a rapid treatment of lesions or illnesses detected.

If you have taken the decision to care for your health and decide to get a Medical Check-up we recommend the following:
Previous to your evaluation:

1. – A day prior to your check-up you must come to the clinical laboratory to get a couple of small containers for the collection of a urine sample ( the first urine of the morning ) and a stool sample to collect and bring to the Hospital.
2. – You must be fasting for 14 hours before taking the blood sample in order to avoid abnormal lipid results and other abdominal ultrasound parameters.
3. – Do not eat greasy or condiment food at least 24 hours prior to the sample taking.
4. – Try to get a good night sleep.
5. – Avoid smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages or using drugs during the hours of fasting.
6. – If you practice a daily sport is very important to continue until the day prior to the check-up in order to assure that the tests represent your actual physical condition.
7. – If you are feeling unwell please cancel you appointment in order to re-program it another day.
8. – The day of your Check-up please wear light sporty clothes like pants or shorts, T shirt and tennis shoes.
