What we test
Essential Fatty Acids Check
OMEGA-3 plays an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease by lowering triglycerides, regulating cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and preventing the build of atherosclerotic plaques. There is also evidence that omega 3s can combat mental disorders and their progression, reduce inflammation, reduce the risk of autoimmune conditions, and are also associated with lowered cancer risks. Good sources of omega-3s and omega-6s should be consumed in the proper ratio. Omega-6 fatty acids compete with omega-3s and can inhibit their effect. Ideally the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 should be around 2:1, but the typical Western diet is closer to 16:1 due to processed foods and oils. This imbalance may be responsible for a number of inflammatory diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes, and play a key role in the development of obesity.
B-Complex Vitamins Check
B- Vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being. As the building blocks of a healthy body, B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism.The functions are
• growth of red blood cells and cell development
• energy levels and DNA synthesis
• good eyesight
• healthy brain function
• good digestion
• healthy appetite
• proper nerve function
• hormones and cholesterol production
• cardiovascular health
Fat Soluble Vitamins Check
Vitamins are essential micronutrients your body needs in small amounts for various roles throughout the human body. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the liver and fatty tissues. The fat-soluble vitamin A,D, E,K, stored in the body.
Over 30% of adults are estimated to be vitamin D deficient which can cause muscle weakness and fatigue. This simple vitamin D test will tell you if you have a deficiency.
Tumor Mark Check (Female)
Tumor markers are substances that are produced by cancer or by other cells of the body in response to cancer or certain benign (noncancerous) conditions. Most tumor markers are made by normal cells as well as by cancer cells; however, they are produced at much higher levels in cancerous conditions. These substances can be found in the blood, urine, stool, tumor tissue, or other tissues or bodily fluids of some patients with cancer. Most tumor markers are proteins. However, more recently, patterns of gene expression and changes to DNA have also begun to be used as tumor markers.
The microalbuminuria test is a urine test that measures the amount of albumin in your urine. Albumin is a protein that your body uses for cell growth,maintain oncotic pressure and to help repair tissues.It's normally present in the blood. A certain level of it in your urine may be a sign of kidney damage.
This test measures the allergic reactions. Allergies are caused by an overreaction of the body’s immune system to certain innocuous molecules from the outside world. These allergens may be from foods, pollens, house dust, animal hair or moulds.
Iron Deficiency Check
When the level of iron is insufficient to meet the body's needs, the level of iron in the blood drops, iron stores are depleted and ferritin levels decrease. This may occur because:
Not enough iron is consumed (either foods or supplements) The body is unable to absorb iron from the foods eaten in conditions such as celiac disease. There is an increased need for iron such as during pregnancy or childhood, or due to a condition that causes chronic blood loss (e.g., peptic ulcer, colon cancer).Insufficient levels of circulating and stored iron may eventually lead to iron deficiency anemia (decreased hemoglobin). In the early stage of iron deficiency, no physical effects are usually seen and the amount of iron stored may be significantly depleted before any signs or symptoms of iron deficiency develop. If a person is otherwise healthy and anemia develops over a long period of time, symptoms seldom appear before the hemoglobin in the blood drops below the lower limit of normal.
Trace Elements Check
Trace elements are a group of tests that measure specific minerals, primarily in the blood but sometimes in the urine or another bodily tissue or fluid. These minerals are substances that the body needs in tiny amounts on a regular basis for normal functioning. They enter the body through the diet and are used in the production of enzymes and hormones, the regulation of glucose, and the formation of bone, teeth, muscles.
Sexually Transmitted Disease Panel Check
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also called sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or venereal diseases, are infections caused by organisms that can be transmitted from one person to another through sexual activity and intimate contact. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that there are almost 20 million new STD cases each year. Half of cases occur in young people.
Most people don’t know they have diabetes until it’s too late. They sometimes ignore early warning signs, such as feeling thirsty all the time or finding skin injuries take longer to heal. But often there are no warning signs at all. Symptoms can have a swift onset and be as severe as reduced vision, kidney failure and erectile dysfunction. Type 2 diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition among Asian but it is a good news that it is preventable disease and easy to predict. To find out if you’re on the path to diabetes and how to prevent it, all you need is a simple diabetes test.This simple diabetes test highlights whether your lifestyle or physiology put you at risk.
Your thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate growth and energy expenditure. Thyroid disorders are quite common, and many people don’t have any symptoms at all. This thyroid test screens for the thyroid hormones that play a key role in regulating the body’s metabolism.symptoms ranging from low energy and depression to unexplained weight gain and insomnia. If you don’t feel right but you can’t put your finger on why, this simple thyroid test can tell you if it's your thyroid.This panel is used to evaluate overall thyroid function. Low thyroid function may result in fatigue, dry skin, and excessive weight gain.
Cardiac Risk Markers Check
50% of people who develop cardiac disease have ‘normal’ cholesterol. A traditional LDL blood test doesn't measure small dense LDL particles, which can hide behind normal cholesterol and increase the risk of heart attack. Advanced Cardiac biomarker test helps individuals improve their heart health.This test help determine your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), including your risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and ischemic stroke
The test would typically be used to evaluate an individual who is at a moderate to elevated risk for CHD or stroke, someone with one or more other risk factors. For instance, it may be ordered when someone has normal or minimally elevated lipid levels, borderline high blood pressure (hypertension), or metabolic syndrome.
The elevated pancreatic enzymes lead to Severe acute pancreatitis which lead to life-threatening failure of multiple organs and to infection. Proteins, fats, and carbohydrates are broken down by stomach acids, enzymes produced by the pancreas, and bile from the liver. This process also releases micronutrients. This blood test measures the levels of enzymes produced by the pancreas.
This test is used in the detection and prognosis of autoimmune disorders of the joints. Rheumatoid factors are antibodies directed against components of the immune system and the joints. The rheumatoid factor is found to be elevated in a majority of individuals with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and mixed connective tissue disorders.A test for cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies (CCP) may be done along with an RF test as studies have shown that the CCP antibody test has a sensitivity and specificity that is considered better than RF and is more likely to be positive with early RA.
Liver Profile Check
Your liver is the chemical factory in our body, it processes drugs and alcohol, filters toxic chemicals, stores vitamins and minerals, and makes bile, proteins and enzymes. This liver function test examines enzymes and other markers for evidence of damage to your liver cells or a blockage near your liver which can impair its function.
Kidney Profile Check
To assess your kidney function if you have known or suspected kidney disease, but only in specific settings when traditional kidney function tests are misleading The rate at which the fluid is filtered is called the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). A decline in kidney function leads to decreases in the GFR and to increases in cystatin C and other measures of kidney function, such as creatinine and urea in the blood. The increases in these levels occur because the kidneys are not able to properly filter the blood at a normal rate, causing their accumulation in the blood. On the other hand, improvement in kidney function is expected to lead to increases in GFR, which would cause cystatin C, creatinine, and urea to decline as a result of the kidneys being able to effectively clear them from the blood.
Lipids and cholesterol are fat-like substances in your blood. Some are necessary for good health, but when you have a high level of cholesterol in your blood, a lot of it ends up being deposited in the walls of your arteries and other vital organs. Lifestyle choices including diet, exercise and alcohol intake can all influence cholesterol levels and your risk of developing heart disease. Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in the blood which is essential for life. However too much cholesterol can have a serious effect on your health as it increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Complete Blood Count Check
The full blood count can be used to determine general health status and to screen for a variety of disorders such as anaemia and infection, as well as nutritional status and exposure to toxic substances. Abnormalities in any of these types of cells can indicate the presence of important medical disorders.
