Your Package Includes these 53 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. A CBC is 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. Let's measure it.
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. Of course we will do it.
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.
Amylase is an enzyme produced by your Pancreas to digest food. If the levels in your blood are higher than expected, it suggest the Pancreas may be damaged. We will be doing the test.
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. Of course it's included.
Pulmonary Function Test
Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are noninvasive tests that show how well the lungs are working. They help in diagnosing Lung problems especially Post Covid-19 or in Smokers. Good idea, we will do it.
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 be doing it as well.
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. It shall be done as well.
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. The whole profile will be done.
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 our muscles of the body. A high level may be an early sign that our kidneys are not working properly. The whole profile is included.
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 included in the pacakge.
