Is Your Body Prepared To Fight with Monsoon Diseases?

This profile is specifically designed for identifying reasons for fever during monsoons. Monsoons make us susceptible to a plethora of parasites—this profiles aids in determining the parasites and helps in better patient outcomes.

 

Our digestive system is weak during monsoon, consumption of easily digestible food is recommended. Fruitsvegetables, properly washed green leafy vegetables, pulses, rice are good options for the same. Eat light foods like vegetablesfruits, cereals etc and reduce consumption of meat or fish. Avoid sour foods like tamarind (imli), chutneys and pickles as they promote water retention. Also avoid eating cut fruits and vegetable outside home because there are more chances of bacterial growth and infection.

 

Let us understand some Tips to prevent viral infections in the rainy season

  • Eat home-cooked food.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Sleep well.
  • Watch out for contaminated water
  • Wash fruits and vegetables before cooking.
  • Avoid sharing when suffering from cold or fever.
  • Prevention is better than cure.

Test included

  • CBC
    • ESR
    • Malarial Parasites (Slide Method)
    • SGPT
    • Urine Routine
    • Widal Test

 


Blood Test Home Service

CBC 


The complete blood count (CBC) is a test that evaluates the cells that circulate in the blood. Blood consists of three types of cells suspended in a fluid called plasma: white blood cells (WBCs), red blood cells (RBCs), and platelets (PLTs). This test is done to determine the general health status; to screen for, diagnose, or monitor any one of a variety of diseases and conditions that affect blood cells.


ESR

 

Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR or sed rate) is a test that indirectly measures the degree of inflammation present in the body. The test actually measures the rate of fall  of erythrocytes   in a sample of blood that has been placed into a tall, thin, vertical tube, reported as the millimeters of clear fluid (plasma) that are present at the top portion of the tube after one hour.

Malarial Parasites (Slide Method)

Malaria involves performing blood smears. For a blood smear, a drop of blood is applied to and spread onto a glass slide.  treated with a special stain and examined under a microscope for the morphology of infected blood cells and the parasite.

SGPT


Serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) is an enzyme found mostly in the cells of the liver and kidney. Much smaller amounts of it are also found in the heart and muscles. This test measures the level of SGPT in the blood to screen for liver damage and/or to help diagnose liver disease

Urine Routine


A urine test is used to assess bladder or kidney infections, diabetes, dehydration and preeclampsia by screening for high levels of sugars, proteins, ketones and bacteria. As hypertension affects the overall health of an individual, this test is done to access the health of kidneys and other organs of the body. 

While the method is easy to perform, concerns remain about the reliability of the Widal test. It is not specific for typhoid fever and can be positive when a person does not have the infection. 



PCOD Profile Test Package

World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that PCOS has affected 116 million women (3.4%) worldwide in 2012. In India, experts claim 10% of the women to be affected by PCOS and yet no proper published statistical data on the prevalence of PCOS in India is available. 

 

Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD), also known as Polycystic Ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a very common condition affecting 5% to 10% of women in the age group 12–45 years. However, the association of PCOD with low-grade inflammation, excess insulin, production of male hormones (Hyperandrogenism) in high quantity and genetics can be found. Treatment method could entail changes in lifestyle like loss of weight as well as exercise

Test included

  • Blood Sugar Fasting
    • Blood Sugar Post Prandial
    • Free Testosterone
    • FSH (Follicle Stimlating Hormone)
    • Insulin Test (Fasting)
    • Insulin Test(PP)
    • LH (Leutinizing Hormone)
    • Prolactin
    • Total Testosterone


Blood Sugar Fasting


PCOS patients may be more prone to diabetes owing to insulin resistance and hormonal imbalance. The test is done as a pre-screen for diabetes and blood sugar imbalances. 

Blood Sugar Post Prandial


PCOS patients may be more prone to diabetes owing to insulin resistance and hormonal imbalance. The test is done as a pre-screen for diabetes and blood sugar imbalances.


Free Testosterone


Over production of androgen is one of the causative factors of PCOS in women. Testosterone produced by the body may be divided into bioavailable and sex hormone binding protein bound. Thus, if total testosterone is found low or normal free testosterone is the measure of hormone available for action (symptoms). Blood testosterone is one of the primary tests for PCOS as these may be found elevated. 

FSH (Follicle Stimlating Hormone)


FSH, secreted by pituitary gland stimulates ovulation by its action on ovaries. Serum levels of FSH may be low or normal in PCOS patient. Thus, the values help contributes to complete picture of hormonal imbalance in PCOS. Moreover, its ration with LH help diagnose the condition. 

Insulin Test (Fasting) and Insulin Test(PP)


Resistance to insulin is identified as one of the primary markers of PCOS diagnosis. As many as 70% of PCOS women are insulin resistant and 10% have DM. Glucose levels alone lack the sensitivity to predict metabolic risk in PCOS patients. Moreover, normoglycaemic women with PCOS are heterogeneous regarding insulin sensitivity. It is not easy to conclude insulin resistance, that is an important precursor to metabolic disorders in PCOS.

LH (Leutinizing Hormone)

Similar to FSH, LH is an important pituitary hormone for ovulation. LH levels and in relation to FSH concentrations help identify anovulation or related conditions in PCOS. 

Prolactin


Hyperprolactinemia or elevated prolactin levels express similar to PCOS symptoms. Thus, the test is done to rule out the possibility. Further, it helps evaluate menstural irregularity and infertility conditions in PCOS patients. 


Total Testosterone


Over production of androgen is one of the causative factors of PCOS in women. The total testosterone is the total amount of hormone produced in the body, i.e. Free and that bound to proteins. Measuring the total testosterone helps diagnose excess androgen as reason for relevant symptoms.
