WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT APHC?
Health screening program to suit the needs of an individual
With the Apollo Personalised Health Check, every individual's health check plan is tailor made (as each individual's susceptibility to develop /manifest a disease differs from the other, based on multiple factors like family history, vital parameters, environmental factors etc). You don't have to go through a battery of tests just because it is included in the set package.
DNA+ genome analysis testing to assess your genetic profile
DNA+ genome analysis test is offered to you with the Apollo Personalised Health Check. We would collect blood /saliva /hair sample for the test. This test will allow us to decode & understand your specific genes that have been implicated in diseases, disorders & metabolism. The report will help us in understanding your risk of developing a particular disease (at present predisposition to 62 disease conditions). It is not a diagnostic test but the report along with your health check will be used by the Physician to guide you in taking proactive measures for disease prevention. It is a once in a life time test. We have collaborated with Datar Genetics , a Nashik based ISO certified company to offer this test to you.

WHY SHOULD I DO THE APHC?
Health screening program to suit the needs of an individual
The best way to prevent disease is to detect them early, which can be done only by regular health checks. The global burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as Cardiovascular Diseases, Diabetes Mellitus, Cancer etc has risen at a rapid pace, and currently over 36 million people worldwide lose their lives to them annually. India alone, unfortunately, accounts for 17% of these deaths related to NCDs. People living in urban areas are more exposed to NCDs due to an unhealthy lifestyle, physical inactivity, and use of alcohol and tobacco products. A majority of the NCDs, which are lifestyle related, are preventable if detected in their early stages of insidious development and/or are controllable if not curable in some cases. Health checks help you find out if you are suffering from a particular disease or condition even if you feel perfectly well, without any symptoms. Early detection and appropriate management can result in better outcomes and lower risk of serious complications.
TESTS IN APHC

- DNA +Personal Genome Analysis test*
*(Optional and available at an additional cost. It can also be done along with other health check packages.)
What is the DNA+ Personal Genome Analysis test?
It is a genetic screening test that analyses DNA to detect your risk for developing disease conditions (presently we give predisposition to 62 diseases.) It is a once in a life time test. Apollo Hospital is the only hospital that offers DNA testing along with Health Checks in India at present.
Why do you need Health Checks after getting a DNA Check?
DNA Check is a predictive test and not a diagnostic test. A DNA test will tell us about your risk of having the disease and not whether you have the disease or not. Whereas, only a Health Check which is diagnostic, can tell you whether you have the disease at the present time or not. Basis your genome analysis, the DNA+ test will add to the personalization of your healthcare by complementing your health check.
