The Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) is a diagnostic procedure conducted by the health provider to detect gestational diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes, and assess carbohydrate metabolism. Conducted in the morning on an empty stomach, the procedure commences with a fasting blood test followed by a blood sugar level check. If the initial results are below 7.00 mmol/l, the patient then consumes a sweet solution containing 75g of glucose. After 120 minutes, a second blood sample is taken to determine glucose tolerance levels. The provider's careful execution of the procedure, using standard laboratory equipment, ensures precise results.

Medicover offers a whole body MRI scan that examines the entirety of the body, ranging from the cranium to the pelvis. The key objective is to detect early signs of cancerous, inflammatory, and degenerative lesions. However, this procedure is purely for screening purposes and does not confirm the type of lesion. Detailed investigation is possible through a targeted MRI examination of the affected area. The provider uses an MRI imaging machine which resembles a thick tube where patients lay on their back while images are taken. It's important to note that this examination cannot be performed on pregnant women or anyone with magnetically responsive materials implanted in their body, such as joint prostheses, nails, screws, metal valves, pacemakers, tourniquets, implants, etc.

Medicover performs a comprehensive examination of cycle-dependent female sex hormones. This test is primarily conducted to diagnose bleeding disorders and fertility issues. The procedure involves two blood draws, one on the third day of the menstrual cycle and another on the twenty-first day. The first blood draw focuses on hormones like AMH, FSH, LH, testosterone, prolactin, oestradiol, while the second blood draw measures progesterone levels. These hormone assessments give a holistic view of hormone homeostasis and organ function. It must be noted that women on contraceptives may not receive accurate results; thus, it is advised they take the test after discontinuing contraceptive use.
