Anti-Aging Screening Singapore

What is anti-aging screening?

An anti-aging screening is a set of clinical tests that are done to check your hormone levels that are related to the aging process. This screening package helps to indicate what parts of your body are aging faster compared to others. An anti-aging screening test is able to target these problem areas and determine any preventive tactics to slow down or even reverse the aging process.

Types of anti-aging screening in Singapore

Hormonal profile

A hormonal profile helps to check the balance of hormones in your body to ensure that your metabolic processes are being regulated. Hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), testosterone and thyroid hormone levels are examined during a hormonal profile test. Hormones are a key part of your bodily processes and are produced in the body’s endocrine glands. As you age, these hormonal levels can change which may lead to signs of aging or health problems that quicken the aging process.

Adrenal Status-cortisol, DHEA test

An adrenal status-cortisol test measures the level of cortisol hormone in your body. As a steroid hormone, cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands (glands above your kidneys) that can cause weight gain if unbalanced, such as if it is too high or too low compared to normal levels. Signs of aging that are associated with cortisol imbalance include heightened stress and poor sleep.

A DHEA test examines the level of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) in your body to check for any abnormalities. DHEA is an anti-aging hormone that is also regulated by the adrenal glands. When you get older, DHEA levels decrease which makes it hard to promote fat loss and regulate bodily processes such as metabolism. DHEA is also key to having good complexion as it protects against skin thinning, making you less susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles in your 20s.

When do you need to undergo an anti-aging screening in Singapore?

An anti-aging screening is recommended as soon as you notice signs of aging that are occurring prematurely. It is typically done once in your lifetime as you will be able to take steps to combat the aging process. An anti-aging screening can also be done when a patient experiences symptoms such as reduced energy and hair loss that do not go away with topical treatments or other kinds of medical interventions. 

An anti-aging screening lets your doctor know if you are experiencing a health condition such as hormonal imbalances. You should also let your doctor know about any hormone-related conditions that run in your family. Some conditions that require an anti-aging screening test include: 

• Weight gain

• Low energy

• Hair loss

• Tiredness

• Depression

How to prepare for an anti-aging screening in Singapore?

  • Avoid strenuous activities beforehand to ensure comfort during the screening
  • Have a meal prior as blood will be drawn during the tests
  • Wear a top or t-shirt with sleeves that can be rolled up
  • Check with your doctor if there are any medications to stop taking beforehand
  • Refrain from consuming coffee and alcohol as they can raise your blood pressure, making test results inaccurate

What happens after the screening?

Once you have undergone an anti-aging screening in Singapore, you will receive your results in about a week. If you are found to be suffering from a hormonal imbalance or other abnormalities, your doctor may refer you to a specialist for further actions.
