Vague; Get Specifics: Vast majority of "check-ups" are superficial, miss a majority of health/disease issues because people want quick, easy, cheap ; expect someone else to give them what they want without much effort on their part (impossible). Regarding liver ; pancreas function, what specific issues were reported? No clinical tests, commonly done, are either thorough or definitive. Microalbumen for kidney function.
