Your Package Include these 60 Tests:
Complete Blood Count
Did you know a CBC gives an idea of you bone marrow as your blood is made here. It measures your Red cells, White cells & Platelets. Not only does it tell us the amount there is, but also the shape and size and indeed the different types they may be. These give us clues regarding your vitamins levels and your iron levels allowing us to judge your diet indirectly. Yes it's included.
Our master gland, The Pituitary, produces a hormone called TSH, that messages our Thyroid Gland telling it how much to work. So by measuring TSH, we are able to judge your Thyroid. How clever. T3, T4 & TSH included.
The Urine should contain our waste and not the good stuff. If we find the good stuff like proteins or glucose here, something is wrong. Included of course.
This measures the blood glucose attached to your Haemoglobin present in your Red Cells. It given an average over the past 3 months, as this is how long your Red cells usually live. Included, no questions asked.
A silent killer stopped by a simple vaccine. Yes, it's included.
Blood Glucose: F & PP
Blood sugar is the main sugar found in your blood. It comes from the food you eat, and is your body's main source of energy. High blood sugars normally suggest you may have Diabetes. Naturally included.
Amylase is an enzyme produced by our Pancreas to digest our food. Included as well.
Vitamin D (25(OH)D)
There are two forms of vitamin D that are important. Vitamin D2 mainly comes from fortified foods while Vitamin D3 is made by your own body when you are exposed to sunlight. These 2 are changed into a 25(OH)D in our blood. Included indeed.
Chest X-rays produce images of your heart, lungs, blood vessels, airways, and the bones of your chest and spine. Chest X-rays can also reveal fluid in or around your lungs or air surrounding a lung. We will do it.
An echocardiogram, or "echo", is an ultrasound scan used to look at the heart and nearby blood vessels. Done along with your ECG.
Stool for Occult Blood
This is a lab test used to check stool samples for hidden (occult) blood. Occult blood in the stool may indicate colon cancer or polyps in the colon. Give us the sample for us to do it.
A Complimentary Room
Tests take time. Why not have your own single room where you can relax in between the tests.
Lipid Profile includes your Total Cholesterol which is a sum of LDL: also called bad cholesterol which accumulates in your blood vessels. VLDL: Usually comes from recently eaten food, therefore should be low when blood test is done fasting. HDL: also called good cholesterol as it helps decrease LDL in blood vessels. In addition it also includes Triglycerides which comes from our food. We do the whole Lipid profile.
The Kidneys job is to excrete our waste, usually made from Nitrogen. So our body changes this Nitrogen to Urea, which dissolves easily in water, allowing our kidneys to throw it out. If this is good your kidneys are likely good. Meanwhile, Creatinine is a waste product that comes from the normal wear and tear on muscles of the body. A high level may be an early sign that the kidneys are not working properly. So we measure both Urea and Creatinine.
Liver function tests are blood tests used to help diagnose and monitor liver disease. Here we measure enzymes and proteins in your blood, which help in assessing liver performance in producing protein and clearing bilirubin, a blood waste product.
Remember, abnormal liver function test results don't always indicate liver disease and vice versa. Yes, it's done.
Street food, so tempting. However its tempting to the flies as well. Lets make sure you haven't picked up a Parasite. We will do a Stool Routine.
B12 is needed to make our blood and keep our nerves healthy. Usually enough Vitamin B12 is present in your diet.... unless one is a vegetarian. Done of course.
Our blood gives us clues when there may be a cancer growing within our body. CEA helps in diagnosing bowel cancer, CA-125 in Ovarian Cancer (women) while PSA helps in Prostate Cancer (Men). 2 tests for men & 2 for women. Let's be fair.
An ESR is a blood test that measures how quickly Red Cells settle at the bottom of a test tube. Usually they settle slowly. When fast, it may indicate inflammation in the body. We will measure it.
Pulmonary Function Test
Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are non-invasive tests that show how well the lungs are working. They help in diagnosing Lung problems especially in Post Covid-19 patients or Smokers. Included, so please don't worry.
An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in your heart. It's used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart's health. Part of our package.
An abdominal ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure used to assess the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, bile ducts, spleen, and Kidneys. Yes, we will be doing it.
