Primarily to diagnose and monitor acute pancreatitis; also sometimes to diagnose and monitor chronic pancreatitis or other pancreatic diseases

Apo A-I is a protein that plays a role in the metabolism of lipids and is one of the main components attached to HDL, commonly referred to as the “good cholesterol”. HDL plays a very important role in removing excess cholesterol from cells and takes it to the liver for recycling or disposal. Levels of apo A-I is directly proportional to HDL levels in the blood, and deficiencies in apo A-I correlate with an increased risk of developing CVD. Like Apo-lipoprotein A1, Apo B is also a protein that is involved in the metabolism of lipids and is the main protein constituent of lipoproteins such as very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL, the “bad cholesterol”). Concentrations of apo B is directly proportional to LDL-C. Doctors usually order both an apo A-I (associated with high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the “good” cholesterol) and an apo B to determine an apo B/apo A-I ratio. This ratio is used as an alternative to a total cholesterol/HDL ratio to evaluate risk for developing CVD. Apo B levels may be ordered to monitor the effectiveness of lipid treatment as an alternative to non-HDL-C (non-HDL-C is the total cholesterol concentration minus the amount of HDL).

Chloride accounts for about 75% of negatively charged ion in the body and hence serves as one of the main electrolytes of the body. Chloride, in addition to potassium and sodium, assist in the conduction of electrical impulses when dissolved in bodily water. In addition to its functions as an electrolyte, chloride combines with hydrogen in the stomach to make hydrochloric acid, a powerful digestive enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of proteins, absorption of other metallic minerals, and activation of intrinsic factor, which in turn absorbs vitamin B12. Chlorides along with other electrolytes are usually ordered as part of routine health checkup. Chloride test like other electrolytes are ordered when prolonged symptoms of diarrhoea, dehydration, weakness and respiratory problems are observed. If the doctor suspects a fluid or an acid-base imbalance, he may order a Chloride test along with other electrolytes to further understand the condition.

Cholesterol performs many different functions in the human body of which 3 of the most critical ones are: It helps make the outer coating of cells. Cholesterol is important to produce bile acids that are critical for digestion. Vitamin D in the body is produced from Cholesterol and also hormones like estrogen and testosterone require cholesterol. Elevated levels of cholesterol are associated with heart disease, atherosclerosis and stroke and hence cholesterol test is one of the most basic and critical test in routine screening and health checkup. Total blood cholesterol is a measure of LDL, HDL, VLDL and Triglycerides. Test results give an indication of heart health and risk assessment for heart diseases and also help the doctor in disease management depending on the numbers. LDL Cholesterol LDL Cholesterol often gets built up on the walls of arteries and leads to blockage. Hence LDL Cholesterol is often termed as the Bad Cholesterol and it is important to maintain optimal levels HDL Cholesterol HDL Cholesterol is called as the good cholesterol because it plays a critical role in removing th e bad cholesterol from the blood thereby protecting you from heart disease. A higher number is desirable. Triglycerides Triglycerides is how your body stores fat and an elevated level is directly linked to heart disease.

LDL Cholesterol often gets built up on the walls of arteries and leads to blockage. Hence LDL Cholesterol is often termed as the Bad Cholesterol and it is important to maintain optimal levels LDL Cholesterol test is almost always ordered together with Lipid Profile to assess an individual’s risk for heart disease. LDL Cholesterol test is also ordered for patients who are under high risk (Is above 45 years old, cigarette smoking, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and family history are some of the risk factors.) LDL Cholesterol and Lipid Profile is one of the most routine tests in regular screening and one of the most basic tests for assessing heart health.

Fasting Blood Sugar is one of the most common laboratory test performed. This test measures, the amount of sugar, i.e. Glucose in your blood after a 12 hour fasting period. Glucose is produced from the carbohydrate foods we eat and is the main source of energy for the body. Insulin, a hormone secreted by the pancreas regulates the amount of Glucose in your blood. When blood glucose levels goes up, the pancreas release insulin and controls the level. Fasting blood sugar is usually the preliminary test to check for pre-diabetes or diabetes. Fasting Blood Sugar is usually measured after 8 hours of fasting period. Diabetes is a serious health condition and if left untreated may damage eyes, kidneys, nerves and blood vessels.

A postprandial glucose test is a blood glucose test that determines the amount of a type of sugar, called glucose, in the blood after a meal. Glucose comes from carbohydrate foods. It is the main source of energy used by the body. Insulin, secreted by the pancreas controls the amount of Glucose in the blood. A 2-hour postprandial blood glucose test measures level of glucose in blood exactly 2 hours after eating a meal, timed from the start of the meal. 2 hours after a meal, blood sugar has usually gone back down in healthy people, but it may still be elevated in people with diabetes. Thus, it serves as a test of whether a person may have diabetes, or of whether a person who has diabetes is successfully controlling their blood sugar.

The Lp(a) test is used to identify an elevated level of lipoprotein (a) as a possible risk factor in the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The test may be used in conjunction with a routine lipid profile to provide additional information about a person’s risk for CVD. Instead, when Lp(a) is high, the presence of this added risk factor may suggest the need for more aggressive treatment of other, more treatable risk factors such as an elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Lp(a) is ordered, along with other lipid tests, when an individual has a strong family history of CVD at a young age that is not explained by high LDL or low HDL. Some health practitioners may also order these tests when: • A person has existing heart or vascular disease, especially those individuals who have healthy lipid levels or ones that are only mildly elevated • Someone may have an inherited predisposition for high cholesterol level • A person has had a stroke or heart attack but has normal or only mildly elevated lipids

Proteins are called as the building blocks of cells and tissues. Our body requires proteins for growth and development. Our blood contains two types of proteins: Albumin and Globulin. Albumin keeps fluid from leaking out of blood vessels and Globulins play a huge role in our immune system. The Total Protein test is almost always done during a routine health check-up. Total Proteins are frequently assessed as a part of person’s overall health status. The total protein test measures the total amount of two kinds of protein in your body: albumin and globulin. It may also be used if you are experiencing unexpected weight loss, fatigue, or have symptoms of a kidney or liver disease.

To help evaluate thyroid gland function and to help diagnose thyroid disorders

A T3 test is one of the most critical tests to measure or evaluate how your thyroid is functioning. This test measures the level of T3 Hormone in the blood. The Thyroid Gland produced T4 (Thyroxine), some of which gets converted to T3 by conversion. T3 helps control many body functions including growth, body temperature, and heart rate. Hence it is important to assess the amount in the blood T3 exists in two forms. The T3 total test measures both the free and attached forms in the blood • The T3 is attached to a protein and aids in taking the hormone to different parts of the body • The other form, which is lesser is free and not attached. The T3 test is particularly useful in diagnosing hyperthyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid overproduces hormones, causing symptoms such as a fast heart rate, weight loss, trembling and sweating.

T4 is considered a reservoir or prohormone for T3, the biologically most active thyroid hormone. Measurement of total T4 gives a reliable indication of thyroid function in the absence of protein binding abnormalities (thyroid horomes not bound to a protein is called free T3 or T4). However, changes in binding proteins can occur which affect the level of total T4 but leave the level of unbound hormone unchanged.

TSH Ultrasensitive test is one of the most critical tests to measure or evaluate how your thyroid is functioning or to put it simply if symptoms of Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism is presented. TSH Ultrasensitive is important : • Diagnose Hyperthyroidism & Hypothyroidism • New Born Screening Test • Monitoring therapy in case of Hypothyroidism • Especially critical in the diagnosis and prognosis of women fertility problems Your doctor is the best person to evaluate your symptoms and guide you in terms of a diagnostic test. TSH is often ordered in combination with other tests. This test is performed by the CMIA method (Chemiluminescent Immuno-Assay Method). This test is highly sensitive and effectively quantifies the level of TSH in the sub normal range.

Vitamin B12 is an important vitamin and performs many basic body functions such as brain health, production of blood cells and normal functioning of the nervous system. Please note that you should not eat or drink anything 6-8 hours prior to the test. Vitamin B 12 is measured when you may present with symptoms like Dementia, Loss of Appetite, Weakness, Increased heart beat etc. It is also tested in the case of pernicious anaemia. Pernicious anaemia is a medical condition in which the red blood cells are reduced and this occurs when the intestines do not absorb Vitamin B12.

To help diagnose and monitor carcinoid tumors and other neuroendocrine tumors

To help diagnose the cause of hemolytic anemia as caused by autoimmune disease or induced by drugs; to investigate a transfusion reaction; to diagnose hemolytic disease of the newborn. The direct antiglobulin test (DAT) is used primarily to help determine if the cause of hemolytic anemia, a condition in which red blood cells (RBCs) are being destroyed more quickly than they can be replaced, is due to antibodies attached to RBCs. This may occur in autoimmune-related hemolytic anemias, which are caused by a person producing antibodies against their own RBC antigens (autoantibodies). Examples of this include autoimmune disorders such as systemic lupus erythematosus, malignant diseases such as lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and infections such as mycoplasma pneumonia and mononucleosis. It can also occur in some people with the use of certain medications, such as penicillin. A DAT may be used to help diagnose hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) due to an incompatibility between the blood types of a mother and baby. When a baby is born, the mother may be exposed to the foreign antigens on the baby’s RBCs and may produce antibodies directed against the baby’s RBC antigens. This may occur when an Rh-positive baby is born to an Rh-negative mother. Formerly, antibodies to the Rh antigen were the most common cause of hemolytic disease of the newborn, but this condition is now rare due to preventive treatments given to the mother during and after each pregnancy. The most common cause of hemolytic disease of the newborn nowadays is an ABO incompatibility between a Group O mother and her baby. This type of fetal-maternal incompatibility is generally mild.

C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein that the liver makes when there is inflammation in the body. CRP is considered as a marker of inflammation, and can be measured with an hs-CRP (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein) test. Inflammation is a way for the body to protect itself from injuries or infections, and inflammation can be caused by smoking, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. Excessive inflammation has been linked to heart disease. A high-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) test may be used by itself or in combination with other cardiac risk markers, or in combination with a lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) test that evaluates vascular inflammation. The hs-CRP test accurately detects low concentrations of C-reactive protein to help predict a healthy person’s risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Folic Acid is one of the many B-Complex Vitamins and is found in fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, meat etc. However folic acid in supplements is better absorbed by the body than dietary intake, A deficiency in folic acid could lead to anaemia since it is required for healthy red blood cells. Folic Acid is extremely important in pregnancy or women who are planning pregnancy since a deficiency could lead to neural tube defects in the baby. Folic Acid also helps with cell and tissue growth and the creation of DNA, which carries genetic information. Taking 400 micrograms of folic acid during pregnancy can prevent brain and spinal cord birth defects such as spina bifida, according to the National Council on Folic Acid (NCFA). Why should Folic Acid be measured? B12 or Folate Deficiency This test may also be used to diagnose B12 or folate deficiency. Signs of a B12 deficiency include diarrhoea or constipation, swollen, red tongue, bleeding gums, lack of appetite. To Diagnose Anaemia Anaemia is a condition caused by a lack of healthy red blood cells. Folic acid is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells. Symptoms of anemia include pale skin, persistent fatigue and headache, sore mouth and tongue Other Factors People who suffer from Intestinal Disorders such as Celiac or Croh’s disease do not absorb enough folic acid and needs to be checked regularly. Alcohol abuse and poor nutrition also leads to Folic Acid deficiency

To help diagnose pernicious anemia

Hemoglobin is the protein inside red blood cells that is responsible for transporting oxygen throughout your circulatory system to your tissues and organs. If your hemoglobin is of a healthy, “normal” type, it will transport and release oxygen with maximum efficiency. If it is abnormal in some way, it may cause too little oxygen may reach your tissues and organs. Hemoglobin A is the most common type of haemoglobin found in healthy children and adults. A hemoglobin electrophoresis test is a blood test used to measure and identify the different types of hemoglobin in your bloodstream. The test is a Rapid, Accurate & Reproducible tool for early detection and management of various Haemoglobin disorders. The test may also be ordered for one of the following reasons: Evaluation of unexplained hemolytic anemia, Microcytic anemia unrelated to iron deficiency, chronic disease, or lead toxicity, a peripheral smear with abnormal red cell features (eg, target cells or sickle cells), family history of hemoglobinopathy, positive neonatal screen results, positive results on sickle cell or solubility test. Detection of Abnormal Hb, keeping in mind the high prevalence of Hb A2 in India, will help in prevention of more serious hemoglobinopathies including Beta Thalassemia major.

An osmotic fragility test is performed to diagnose two hereditary conditions: thalassemia and hereditary spherocytosis. Thalassemia causes your body to make an abnormal form of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein that allows red blood cells to carry oxygen. If you have thalassemia, your red blood cells are more likely to be destroyed. This can lead to anemia. Hereditary spherocytosis causes problems with the outer layer of your blood cells. This can also lead to anemia. To perform this test, you will give a blood sample. Your red blood cells will be tested to see how easily they break. If your red blood cells are more fragile than normal, the test is considered positive.

Parietal cells are the stomach epithelial cells that secrete gastric acid and intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor is required for the absorption of Vitamin B12 in the diet. A long-term deficiency in vitamin B12 can lead to Megaloblastic anaemia, characterized by large fragile Red Blood Cells. Pernicious anaemia is a condition where intrinsic factor is not produced and leads to the same type of anaemia. Markedly increased levels are observed, for example, after trauma, heart attack, with autoimmune disorders, and with serious bacterial infections like sepsis. A Parietal Cell Antibody test is used along with or as a follow up test to Intrinsic Factor Antibody test. These two tests help determine the cause of vitamin b12 deficiency and in a suspected case of pernicious anaemia for confirming the diagnosis. Signs and symptoms include presence of large fragile red blood cells (RBCs) which is one of the first signs and can be detected much earlier in a routine CBC (Complete Blood Examination). Weakness, fatigue, pale, numbness and tingling are few other symptoms.

Vitamin D plays a crucial role in the body by absorbing calcium and maintaining strong bones for a lifetime. Vitamin D2 and D3 are obtained from dietary sources and Cholesterol can also be broken down by the body to Vitamin D3 with the help of direct sunlight. The Vitamin D 25 Hydroxy test is the best way to monitor Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D deficiency indicates osteoporosis, rickets and a variety of bone disorders. Extensive studies also relate low Vitamin D levels to Diabetes, Cardiac Diseases, Stroke and even Cancer. A healthy Vitamin D level indicates good health

Coagulation tests measure your blood’s ability to clot and the amount of time it takes to do so. You may be recommended to undergo a coagulation test if your doctor suspects you have a clotting disorder. Conditions that cause coagulation problems include liver disease, thrombophilia (excessive clotting), and hemophilia (inability to clot normally).

Medical check-ups help you stay healthy and to pick up early warning signs of disease or illness. Some serious disease and Cancers can often be picked up in their early stages, when treatment may be more successful.

When the proteins used in your normal clotting process become overly active, it can cause DIC. Infection, severe trauma (i.e., brain injuries, crushing injuries) inflammation, surgery, complications in pregnancy and cancer are all known to contribute to this condition.
