What does it involve?
This test gives an overview of blood health: highlighting early signs of blood disorders, infection, inflammation and blood cancers.
ABO & Rhesus
This test is conducted to categorize your blood type and group, alongside your Rhesus status. It is important to know your blood type to prevent the risk of you receiving an incompatible blood type at a time of need, such as during a blood transfusion or during surgery.
▸ Diabetes Screen
This test tells you how much sugar you have circulating in your body. Higher sugar (glucose) predisposes you to diabetes. This test includes HbA1C, which helps diagnose diabetes and prediabetes. It can also guide patients already on existing diabetes sugar-lowering medications.
▸ Lipid Profile
This is an in depth test showing levels of various cholesterols and fatty acids in your blood. High cholesterol predisposes to heart disease, stroke and diabetes. This test is also helpful to guide patients on existing cholesterol lowering medication – to gauge if they are on adequate medication.
▸ Liver Function Test
This test gives an overview of liver function: highlighting your body's nutrition status, protein content, liver enzyme function and ability to excrete your body's toxins and waste. It detects any early signs of liver dysfunction.
▸ Renal Function Test
This test gives an overview of kidney health: highlighting early signs of reduced kidney function, body electrolyte content, mineral content and hydration level.
▸ Urine FEME
This test gives a comprehensive overview of your kidney health. Abnormalities can highlight early signs of urinary tract dysfunction, diabetes or liver dysfunction.
▸ Hepatitis Screen
This test can screen or diagnose for Hepatitis A, B & C infection or determine if you are immune. It can also monitor your condition if you have existing Hepatitis.
▸ Thyroid Function Test
TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test gives an overview of thyroid health: highlighting the effectiveness of your body's metabolism. Free thyroxine (free T4) tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. It is usually analysed when thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is abnormal.
This test will help determine if you are deficient in vitamins B6, B9 (folate) or B12. It can also be used to determine if you are at an increased risk of heart attack or stroke; or to monitor those who have heart disease.
Infectious Disease Screening
▸ STD Profile
This test is a screening test for Syphilis.
AFP (alpha feto protein) helps diagnose and monitor treatment for certain cancers of the liver, ovaries or testicles. A raised value increases the likelihood of cancer. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.
CEA is a tumour marker for certain cancers like colon, bladder, breast, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, stomach and thyroid. A raised value increases the likelihood of cancer. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.
This is a pancreatic cancer marker. A raised value increases the likelihood of pancreatic cancer. Early detection greatly improves response to treatment.
▸ Rheumatoid Factor (Rheumatoid Arthritis)
This is a marker used to screen for various autoimmune disease, like Rheumatoid Arthritis, and certain infectious diseases, like Tuberculosis.
▸ Helicobacter Pylori Antibody
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a type of bacteria that is a major cause of peptic (digestive) ulcers. H. pylori testing detects an infection of the digestive tract caused by the bacteria to help diagnose the cause of symptoms and/or ulcers.
