In Japan, there are unique facilities (namely Ningen Dock) of health check-up provide seemingly healthy participants a health examination including health and cancer screening activities at their own expense. The most advanced examination equipment and examinations do not only provide high accuracy but they also reduce stress on the body of a participant. Using the medical equipment and diagnostic techniques allows for successful detection of many diseases while in early stages development. This early detection of masked critical problems leads to quicker response to disease. This communication evaluated an assure role of Ningen Dock in evaluation of hidden anaemia among asymptomatic women. In participants with haemoglobin (Hb) level < 10.0 g/dl, the percent of women who experienced dyspnoea, weakness, constipation and fatigue is significantly higher than in other two groups. The mean number of persons with menopause, hyper menorrhea and irregular bleeding were significantly correlated with the group with Hb level < 10.0 g/dl. We recommend a thorough uterus and reproductive work-up by gynaecologist for any women with Hb level < 10.0 g/dl.
