Eyesight isn't a problem, nor are 'normal' or 'run of the mill' problems; they are looking for signs of current serious illness or future problems and also contagious diseases. Each may have a burden on Canadian medicare program.

I have seen on the medical briefing sheet that 130 over 80 is their baseline for raising concerns, so less you worry, better you will be in medicals.

Hi,

High B.P. is not a cause for worry. As the age increases the B.P of a person inceases this is normal. I am not a medical genuis, but you can contact your family practioner for details. Rich has rightly suggested that 80/130 is the base line. For a person between 21-35 the B.P is 80/120 again depends on your physical and mental state. Dont worry about these minute details. What you should worry about is getting the medicals that is the main prob. rest is fine.

Hi bhaleroa,
Thanks for your reply. Actually I am now doing my Medicals and the doctor pointed out that my husband B.P is high I think it was 170/80 something like that, he is in his 40's. But when we tested it some where else the reading is saying normal. I am kinda worried, since they ask him to do a cholestrol level test and an ECG. The ECG is normal since that test was done today.

Would lappreciate your comments.

Just to correct something here. I am a medical student, it will be a surprise that the baseline for BP is 130/80, currently standard is 140/90, and it has to be measured when a person is rested and over a certain period, not just once or twice. A lot of people over 40s will be 130/80 in 2 pm-4 pm.

My correction, have just checked latest med regs (CIC Designated Medical Practitioner Handbook" states:

Requires 'serum creatinine and cardiologist report' where < 59 years old and BP >140/90 or 160/90 if >60 years of age.

> coughs, doffs cap to superior medical knowledge, wishes he had checked handbook before typing wife who is a nurse laughs and says not to meddle with things he knows nowt about LOL.

There are many reasons for high blood pressure,and think if it raises any concerns alongside other things that are found at the medical, they can ask for further investigation. They did an ECG amd cholestral test ,and if these were fine then I do not think the high blood pressure would be anyhting to worry about, especially if it was taken again and had lower reading.
You can still pass, but may be advised to keep an eye on it if they were concerned, or try and lower cholestral if high.

The medicals were quite straightforward and took about ten minutes each for a family of four. Of course we also had to go over to the hospital for X Rays and blood drawn.

Doctor just asked for weight and never measured our blood presssure, but then our medical history was striaghtforward too, so nothing to ask a lot of questions about. Urinalysis is just a standard check for sugar or protein in the urine.

Default Re: wat do they check in medical?

Hi everyone. *S*.lots of great information in these threads. I will be going for my medical within about two months.

14 years ago..i had cancer. My specialist is typing up a summary and report for me to be able to take with me to the doctor. I have also had pnuemonia. I have had no recurrence with these illnesses.I am not expecting any problems with the medical to do with these issues. As i am prepared that they might want further tests or whatever to satisfy that i am OK now.

My question is ..can anyone tell me as to the cost to visit a doctor in Canada....generaly..? and also..how much is it to have an x-ray..?
I am also wondering how much doctors have been charging for the immigration purpose check.....????
I will be paying for these outright as i won't have medical coverage. And i will be in British Columbia. Thanks in advance for any info given..*S*

also...> medical assistance ....meditation....yoga.. regular exercise
.and essential oils..of lavender and bergamot (helps with relaxation)..may
assist with reducing high blood pressure. ( i am an aromatherapist and have worked with the elderly)....Good Luck to everyone on their medicals.

Hi Maple Leaf

I went to the doctor twice when I was in Canada in 03/04. The first time was in Victoria (so B.C) just for general illness. That cost me $40 just to see the doctor. I was then told because I didn't have medical insurance that they wouldn't do tests etc, as they couldn't be guarenteed of being paid.
I also went in Banff (Alberta) just to get a repeat of a script. It cost me $50.

Not cheap....
Can't help with the meds cost, as I had them done here, but when I was thinking of getting them done in Canada, I ggogled the names of the DMP's in Calgary, found one with an email address, and emailed my querie. He replied that it would cost about $150, but I don't think that included the blood tests or x-rays.

hello thanks for that info.
I am not much of a doctor person...only go when i absolutely have to. I use natural therapies and am used to having to pay outright. So those prices you quoted are reasonable to me...*S*....i have been wondering about the x-ray and blood test situation tho. Anyhow it doesn't realy make much difference i spose as it has to be done. *S*
