What is Ningen Dock?

Ningen Dock (Health Checkup)

Kameda Kyobashi Clinic offers health checkup programs, known as ‘Ningen Dock,’ for the early detection and prevention of illnesses. The purpose of health checkups is to maintain your well-being through three primary roles: early detection of cancer, detection of lifestyle-related diseases, and confirmation of overall health condition.

1.Early Detection of Cancer

Numerous types of cancer can be effectively treated when detected in the early stages, potentially preventing fatalities associated with cancer. Early detection plays a crucial role in improving treatment outcomes and overall patient prognosis. Typically, treatment following the early detection of cancer in its initial stages is less invasive. Early identification allows for more targeted and minimally disruptive interventions, enhancing the overall patient experience and recovery process. For instance, regular endoscopic screenings for the upper gastrointestinal tract and colon can facilitate early detection of cancers in these areas, significantly reducing the risk of fatal outcomes. Consistent monitoring through scheduled examinations plays a pivotal role in enhancing preventive care and patient well-being.

Advise on Early Detection of Cancer:

The types of cancer you may develop, those with a potential for fatal outcomes, and the cancers for which screening is effective depend on your gender and age. Screening is considered particularly effective for lung cancer, gastric cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, and uterine body cancer. To facilitate the early detection of these cancers, it is crucial to develop a screening plan with a long-term perspective. Additionally, determining which optional tests to undergo and at what intervals is equally important.

2. Detection of Lifestyle-Related Diseases

Lifestyle-related diseases encompass a range of conditions, including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, high LDL cholesterol, low LDL cholesterol, and hypertriglyceridemia. Left untreated, these conditions can progress to atherosclerosis, leading to serious complications such as heart attacks, strokes (ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, and subarachnoid hemorrhage), vision loss, or the need for dialysis. Heart attacks and strokes are severe, potentially resulting in early mortality or prolonged periods of bedridden states. Early detection of lifestyle-related diseases during the Ningen Dock, along with a focus on overall health improvement, can effectively prevent the onset of severe lifestyle-related diseases in the future.

Advice on Lifestyle-Related Diseases:

Numerous lifestyle-related diseases are caused by poor habits, such as overeating, insufficient exercise, obesity, smoking, and excessive alcohol intake. However, detecting these diseases solely during the Ningen Dock does not guarantee the prevention of future diseases. The key lies in enhancing lifestyle habits, making it imperative to thoroughly reassess your lifestyle post-Ningen Dock. We strongly encourage this proactive approach for sustained well-being.

3. Confirmation of Overall Health Condition

Numerous individuals choose to undergo the Ningen Dock to assess their health status and draw inspiration for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We believe that the Ningen Dock serves a pivotal role, not just in detecting potential diseases, but also in alleviating any concerns related to health. By undergoing the Ningen Dock, you can gain a comprehensive understanding of your health, delving into various aspects of your well-being. The Ningen Dock acts as a catalyst for personal inspiration toward adopting and sustaining a healthy lifestyle. The detailed health assessment not only identifies existing conditions but also empowers individuals with the knowledge and motivation to make informed choices about their daily habits, nutrition, and exercise.

Our approach extends beyond a mere diagnostic tool; it’s a holistic strategy aimed at fostering a proactive and personalized journey to well-being. We prioritize not only the detection and prevention of diseases but also the cultivation of a positive and empowered mindset towards health.
