Men’s Physical Check-Ups at Chiang Mai’s Premier Male Health Clinic
At Boston Health Polyclinic, we believe that you should always be in the best possible health possible. This means being screened for potential risk factors and trying to maintain a high quality of life.
As a leading men’s health clinic in Chiang Mai, we use a multidisciplinary approach by our Physicians to promote better health and prevent complications of chronic diseases and cancers. Men should go for health checkups once a year to be current on the latest guidelines.
Men are usually poor at taking care of their general health. They tend to ignore problems until they get so symptomatic that they absolutely have to see a doctor. This is not a sensible approach to your well-being. Also, almost all diseases and cancers are much easier to treat if found in the early stages of disease.
Boston Health Polyclinic is ready to provide comprehensive male physical check ups including annual checkups by age. We have a special program for males such as hormone and prostate cancer screening to improve your health routine.
Remember the old saying, that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.Show more +

Vital Sign Checks: Heart Rate, Respiratory Rate and Blood Pressure
The vital signs check is one of the most important items of our full health check for men in Chiang Mai. The definition of vital signs is fairly simple. These are the most important parameters that show us basic health functions.
After you talk with the doctor during your full male health check, you will get your vital signs checked by a nurse or doctor. We ensure every parameter is in a normal range. Heart rate and Blood pressure help us determine the state of your cardiovascular system.
High blood pressure is referred to as the silent killer. This is because high blood pressure is usually completely asymptomatic. You have no idea when your blood pressure is high, so you go about life, not knowing the significant risk of what high blood pressure can do to harm you.
It can affect your kidneys, and contribute to heart attack, stroke, and significant damage to other organs.
We have many medications and treatments including lifestyle modification that can help you control your blood pressure.
Respiratory Rate tells us about your lungs and the O2 balance in your body. It can be a sign of fever, infection, lung disorders, and other serious problems.
Blood Tests Including Complete Blood Count and Fasting Blood Sugar
The basic blood tests for a men’s physical check up in Chiang Mai includes a complete blood count (called CBC) and fasting blood sugar (called FBS).
The CBC is the group of the test that presents the function of your hematology system. It contains three series of blood components: White blood cells, Red blood cells, and Platelets.
FBS is simple fasting blood sugar and it represents the sugar level in your bloodstream after fasting over 8 hours to diagnose the common but dangerous disease called “Diabetes Mellitus” or “DM”. The normal range of FBS is under 126 mg/dL.
A better test than FBS is hemoglobin A-1 C, which tells us about your sugar levels over an extended period of time. We like this test because the fasting blood sugar takes an isolated snapshot of your blood sugar at that moment. Hemoglobin A-1 C, however, tells us about your blood sugar over an extended period of time which is more accurate. Book a men’s physical check up in Chiang Mai today with Boston Health Polyclinic for comprehensive blood tests and important related health advice.
Lipid Profile Check Including Total Cholesterol, Triglyceride, LDL – Cholesterol and HDL – Cholesterol
Every man should know his lipid profile. This is because lipids can contribute to atherosclerosis, a buildup of blockage in your blood vessels. This can cause catastrophic results, especially in the heart and brain, and cause heart attacks and strokes.
Lipid profiles contain 4 parameters including Total Cholesterol, Triglyceride, LDL (low-density cholesterol, and HDL(high-density cholesterol) for the diagnosis of dyslipidemia.
If you have high lipids in your blood, it will affect your overall body health at the cellular level such as the brain, liver, spleen, and bone marrow. For better health, you have to ensure that your lipid level is in the normal range.
There are many ways to treat high cholesterol. These include diet modification, and medication, and must include a careful family history in your assessment.
Men over the age of 40 should consider having a lipid profile test performed every year as part of their private health check. Arrange a male physical checkup with Boston Health Polyclinic in Chiang Mai today including a full lipid profile check alongside professional caring health advice you won’t find anywhere else.
Liver Function Test Including SGOT (AST) and SGPT (ALT)
Most people are unaware of the incredible importance of the liver. Think of it as an organ of filtration, metabolism, and detoxification. In essence, it cleanses the body of toxins. Digestion cannot be performed without the function of a normal liver.
The liver also stores fat-soluble vitamins and plays an essential role in maintaining normal levels of cholesterol. It also stores iron and copper and is crucial in regard to normal blood clotting and protein synthesis.
Signs of liver problems include general fatigue, loss of appetite, feeling nauseous, and discomfort in the right upper abdominal area. It can also cause disturbed sleep patterns. As the disease progresses, you may get jaundice, which is a yellow discoloration of the skin and the white area in the eye.
The liver needs to be checked every year by getting two liver parameters AST and ALT. You need to talk to your doctor if they are high, for further investigation depending on your health history and lifestyle.
Risk factors for liver disease, include high alcohol, intake, fatty liver, disease, obesity, and unfortunately, certain medications. Type 2 diabetes is also a risk factor for liver disease.
Chronic hepatitis C is notorious for causing cirrhosis of the liver. Also, the body can attack itself in autoimmune disorders, causing autoimmune hepatitis.
Part of our liver assessment is a detailed history to try and determine any underlying risk factors that you might have and do everything possible to eliminate them.
Boston Health Polyclinic provides both AST and ALT liver function tests as part of our men’s physical check up. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to arrange a men’s private health check at our conveniently located men’s health center in Chiang Mai.
Kidney Function Test Including Creatinine plus GFR, Uric acid, and Urine Examination
A normal kidney will filter approximately half a cup of blood every single minute of your life. This serves to remove toxins and wastes from your body. Urine is produced, which then goes from your kidneys down your ureter to your bladder. The bladder stores the urine and then gets expelled when you use the toilet.
The kidney maintains the balance of body fluids in your body and expels excessive water. If you are dehydrated, it works to conserve water. It also releases hormones to regulate blood pressure. It also produces an active form of vitamin D to promote strong and healthy bones. The kidney controls the production of red blood cells.
When you are using medications, these medications are gradually removed from the body by the kidneys. This is why it’s important to know about kidney function if you’re taking any medication. If you have poor kidney function, you can build up dangerous levels of those medications because they’re not being removed from the body.
Healthy kidneys are not just important. They are essential for life. Risk factors for poor kidney function include high blood pressure and diabetes.
GFR stands for glomerular filtration rate. This is a test that determines how well your kidneys are functioning to filter your blood. This test calculates the filtration rate based on your age, gender, size, and race by testing your protein levels.
Serum creatinine is a measure of the level of creatinine, which is a waste product from muscle tissue breakdown. It will be elevated in kidney disease.
To ensure your kidney health, you must check the creatinine level and have a urine examination (called Urinanalysis, or UA) every year. Uric acid is another indicator of kidney health. High uric acid levels may be an indicator of kidney problems. Interested in a male physical check up? Contact our team and arrange an appointment to visit our Chiang Mai male clinic today.
Chest X-ray is the one of easier ways to evaluate your lungs and chest health and it plays an integral part in our full health check for men in Chiang Mai. It can detect cancer, infection, or abnormalities in your lungs.
The need for a chest X-ray is determined by age and risk factors. It may not be indicated in a healthy young male, non-smoker, who is asymptomatic. In contrast, a 60-year-old male who is a chronic smoker absolutely needs to get a chest x-ray on a regular basis.
EKG or ECG is a good basic test for your heart health. It can detect abnormal heart function that may be caused by heart diseases. The terms ECG and EKG are interchangeable. They are simply spelled differently in different countries.
Even if you have no symptoms, doing an ECG every year is good for recording the baseline of your heart health. The need for an ECG increases every year as we get older because the likelihood of heart disease increases. The electrocardiogram (EKG) test is one of the most important tests you can receive during a regular. Luckily this vital test is available through our full health check for men in Chiang Mai – Request an appointment today at our dedicated men’s health clinic.Show more +
