FIT screening

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers. The good news is that CRC incidence and mortality can be reduced significantly if detected early enough.

Faecal immunochemical tests (FIT) are non-invasive and can detect blood in stool invisible to the naked eye. Due to its simplicity, FIT is currently considered the best non-invasive test for CRC screening.

Invest a little time in your own health by taking the FIT to prevent or detect colon cancer early on.

Glossary

Ketones (KET)

Ketones in urine indicate increased fat degradation in the body. This can be caused by an insufficient supply of energy from carbohydrates. During the degradation of fatty acids, intermediary compounds called ‘ketone bodies’ (acetoacetic acid, s-hydroxybutyric acid and acetone) are formed in the liver. Ketones can be detected in urine when increased fat degradation takes place and is particularly important in checking metabolic decompensation in diabetes mellitus.
