FIT screening

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers. The good news is that CRC incidence and mortality can be reduced significantly if detected early enough.

Faecal immunochemical tests (FIT) are non-invasive and can detect blood in stool invisible to the naked eye. Due to its simplicity, FIT is currently considered the best non-invasive test for CRC screening.

Invest a little time in your own health by taking the FIT to prevent or detect colon cancer early on.

April - Hyaline casts in urine

In the event of unusual physical exercise or fever, casts can appear in the urine. They are formed of precipitated Tamm-Horsfall protein in the distal and collecting tubules of the kidney and are washed out of the tubulus system via the papilla renalis by the flow of the urine. While detecting hyaline casts in the urine sediment is a physiological finding, casts with inclusions, such as red blood cells or drops of lipids, point towards kidney disease.
