A complete blood count, also known as a full blood count, is a set of
medical laboratory tests that provide information about the cells in a person's
blood. The CBC indicates the counts of white blood cells, red blood cells and
platelets, the concentration of hemoglobin, and the hematocrit.
HbA1C: The haemoglobin (Hb) A1c test tells you your average level of blood sugar over the past 3 months. It's also called glycated haemoglobin test and glycohaemoglobin. People who have diabetes need this test regularly to see if their levels are staying within range. It can tell if you need to adjust your diabetes medicines.
Vit. D: Vitamin D testing is used to determine whether you have enough vitamin D in your body to support normal bodily functions. An inadequate level of vitamin D is called a deficiency. A more mild lack of vitamin D can be referred to as an insufficiency.
Vit. B12: Vitamin B12 testing measures the extent of this Vitamin in your blood.
Having a Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause a variety of health issues, including anemia and nervous system problems.
A thyroid profile test is a comprehensive set of tests that examine the function of your thyroid glands. The thyroid profile test assesses the Thyroxine (T4, Total) - Serum, Tri Iodothyronine (T3, Total) - Serum, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and Ultrasensitive TSH that helps in understanding the functioning of the thyroid gland. The test assesses the increase or decrease in the production of hormones by the gland.
A lipid profile is a panel of blood tests used to find abnormalities in lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides. The results of this test can identify certain genetic diseases and can determine approximate risks for cardiovascular disease, certain forms of pancreatitis, and other diseases.
An Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) is a blood test that measures how quickly erythrocytes (red blood cells) settle at the bottom of a test tube that contains a blood sample. Normally, red blood cells settle relatively slowly. A faster-than-normal rate may indicate inflammation in the body.
Urine-culture and sensitivity
A urine culture test can identify bacteria or yeast causing a urinary tract infection (UTI). If bacteria multiply, an antibiotic sensitivity test can identify the antibiotic most likely to kill those particular bacteria.
The iron profile includes a measurement of serum iron and transferrin levels as well as a calculation of transferrin (iron) saturation. The iron profile is often completed by testing the level of ferritin, the main protein that stores iron in tissues.
