Usually the checkup will take place over 1 or 2 days, depending on how thorough the medical examination is.

This is one of the most common lab tests, and shows the levels of 4 key electrolytes; sodium (Na), potassium (K), chloride (Cl), and bicarbonate (Co2), as well as blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine (Cr), and glucose in the blood.
This set of tests can help to show any acute problems such as dehydration or low blood sugar, as well as checking kidney function. Complete blood count (CBC): This test can help to show infection, anemia, or leukemias, by looking at the proportions within the blood. For example, high numbers of white blood cells can indicate that the body is fighting an infection.

Body mass tests: Options include body fat distribution, abdominal fat analysis, and whole body composition analysis. Imaging options: As well as a chest X-ray, doctors may recommend an abdominal ultrasound scan, carotid artery ultrasound scan, colonoscopy, or bone mineral densitometry (BMD). Women may also be advised to have a pelvic ultrasound scan and mammogram. Cancer marker tests: Depending on the patient's age and family history, the specialist might recommend cancer marker tests such as carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), CA 125, CA 15-3, or CA 19-9, which can be used to detect certain types of cancer.
Other tests: Women are often recommended to have thyroid panel tests (T3,T4 and TSH), as well as pap smear testing and vitamin B12 and D3 testing, depending on the age of the patient. Some patients will be recommended to test for communicable diseases such as Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, and HIV.
