This test is also known as Complete Blood Count. It involves quantitative analysis of the following blood cells.
- WBC-White Blood Cells (Leukocytes)
- RBC-Red Blood Cells (Erythrocytes)
- Platelets or Thrombocytes
Abnormally high or low counts may indicate the presence of many forms of diseases like Anemia (Low RBC), Erythrocytosis (High RBC), Leucocytosis (High WBC), Leucopenia (Low WBC), Thrombocytosis (High Platelets), Thrombocytopenia (Low Platelets) etc. Hence blood counts are amongst the most commonly performed blood tests in medicine, as they can provide an overview of a patient’s general health status.
Liver Function Tests (LFT)
Liver Function Tests (LFT) are group of tests designed to give information about the state of a person’s liver. Liver has a wide range of functions, including detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. The liver is necessary for survival; there is currently no way to compensate for the absence of liver function. Most liver diseases cause only mild symptoms initially, but it is vital that these diseases be detected early. These tests can be used to.
Detect the presence of liver disease.
Distinguish among different types of liver disorders.
Follow the response to treatment.
Gauge the extent of known liver damage.
Blood Grouping is also known as Blood Typing. It is a method to tell what specific type of blood you have. What type you have depends on whether or not there are certain proteins, called antigens, on your red blood cells. Blood is often grouped according to the ABO blood typing system. This method breaks blood types down into four categories : Type A, Type B, Type AB and Type O. The presence or absence of Rhesus antigen in the blood further makes you positive or negative of that blood type. E.g. A+, A-, B+, B- etc.
Thyroid ‐Stimulating Hormone
TSH Stands for Thyroid ‐Stimulating Hormone. This test is carried out in order to diagnose and manage an underactive or overactive thyroid ‐‐ also known as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. The thyroid gland is found in the neck .The thyroid controls how quickly the body uses energy, makes proteins, and controls how sensitive the body should be to other hormones. The thyroid gland participates in these processes by producing thyroid hormones. In healthy people, the thyroid makes just the right amounts of two hormones, T4 and T3, which have important actions throughout the body. The most common problems of the thyroid gland consist of an over‐active thyroid gland, referred to as ‘hyperthyroidism’, and an under‐active thyroid gland, referred to as ‘hypothyroidism’.
Common problems of hypothyroidism are fatigue, depression, excessive weight gain, cold intolerance,excessive sleepiness, dry coarse hair, constipation, dry skin, muscle cramps, increased cholesterol levels, decreased concentration, vague aches and pains, Swelling of the legs.
Common problems of hyperthyroidism are Palpitations, Heat intolerance, Nervousness, Insomnia, Breathlessness, Increased bowel movements, Light or absent menstrual periods, Fatigue, Fast heart rate, Trembling hands, Weight loss, Muscle weakness, Warm moist skin, Hair loss, Staring gaze.
Homocysteine is an amino acid that is produced by the body, usually as a byproduct of consuming meat. Amino acids are naturally made products, which are the building blocks of all the proteins in the body. Elevated levels of homocysteine (>10 micromoles/liter) in the blood may be associated with atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries) as well as an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, blood clot formation, and possibly Alzheimer’s disease.
