What you should know before booking a covid 19 package?
Covid cases are on the rise and an early diagnosis and timely management can help tremendously in recovering from the disease faster and avoid the spread of infection to others. In case you feel your symptoms are specific to Covid-19, you can get yourself tested for the disease. The symptoms that are common with a COVID-19 infection are cough, runny nose, fever, headaches, red-eye, muscle cramps, and symptoms of gastritis. It is also important to keep a check on other health parameters during a Covid infection to prevent any further complications. Covid related tests and packages detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in your body and also measures certain inflammatory markers such as CRP (C-reactive protein) and D-Dimer that may increase during or after an infection. Apart from these, the packages also include your basic blood tests to keep a check on your overall health. Following are some of the common tests that are a part of our Covid-19 related tests and packages: • Molecular and antigen tests such as RT-PCR and rapid antigen testing are types of diagnostic tests that can detect if you have an active COVID-19 infection. Samples for these diagnostic tests are typically collected with a nasal or throat swab. • Antibody tests look for antibodies in your blood that are produced in response to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. These tests should not be employed to diagnose an active COVID-19 infection • CT scan checks if you have ground-glass appearance in the lungs. This indicates lung diseases such as pneumonia, which is commonly seen in the patients of Covid. • C-reactive protein test measures the level of C-Reactive Protein (CRP) in the blood. This protein is made in your liver in response to inflammation. Normally, you have low levels of CRP present in your blood. High levels can be indicative of serious infection or other disorders such as Covid-19. • Ferritin checks the levels of ferritin in the blood, which determines the levels of iron in the body and evaluates the body’s capacity to store iron. The Ferritin Test is widely performed to confirm iron deficiency anemia detected in routine check-ups. This test also determines iron overload in the body and the body’s capacity to store iron. • D-Dimer testing is usually ordered when someone is suffering from symptoms of a serious condition (e.g., chest pain and difficulty in breathing) & is brought into an emergency. • A D-dimer test may also be ordered when someone has symptoms of deep vein thrombosis, such as sudden shortness of breath, forced breathing, coughing, hemoptysis (blood in sputum) Book these tests easily with us for you and your loved ones. 1mg offers specialized tests and packages depending on your condition so that you and your family stay safe during these unprecedented times.
