What does AAROGYAM 2020 B Measure?
Aarogyam 2020 B is a complete health checkup or diagnostic scan of your body that includes kidney, liver, blood, urine, lipid profile, thyroid and other tests to assess your current health status & to screen you for any possible warning signs or for any health abnormalities. The following tests are a part of the Aarogyam 2020 B.
Liver function test (LFT) is used to assess the function of the liver and is done when any liver disease like viral hepatitis, alcoholic hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis, and cirrhosis (scarring of the liver)is suspected. This test is also done for monitoring of any ongoing treatment or simply as a part of a routine checkup.
Kidney Function Test (KFT) is a group of blood tests, which is used to determine how well the kidneys are working. KFT is performed either as a part of routine health checkups or to help diagnose any disease affecting the kidneys. It can also screen people at risk for the development of any kidney disease and even to monitor treatment efficacy of kidney diseases.
Lp-PLA2 (LIPOPROTEIN ASSOCIATED PHOSPHOLIPASE A2) activity Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) is an enzyme that appears to play a role in the inflammation of blood vessels and is helps in promoting atherosclerosis. This test measures the amount or activity of Lp-PLA2 in the blood. It helps in determining your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), including your risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and ischemic stroke.
Serum Electrolyte test can help in determining whether there's an electrolyte imbalance in the body and can be a part of routine physical examination, or it may be used as part of a more specific set of tests. your electrolyte level is checked while you are on certain medications, such as diuretics or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors that are often used to treat high blood pressure.this test is also used to find out whether there's an acid-base imbalance (a normal arterial blood pH range is 7.35 to 7.45) and can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for an imbalance that impacts the functioning of an organ.
Insulin - Fasting is a test that evaluates insulin production by the beta cells in the pancreas or diagnoses the presence of an insulin-producing tumor in the islet cells of the pancreas (insulinoma). This test also finds out the cause of low blood glucose (hypoglycemia) and helps in identifying insulin resistance. This test can also be a determinant of when a type 2 diabetic might need to start taking insulin to supplement oral medications.
Lipid Profile is a group of blood tests that detects the levels of different types of lipids present in the blood. A lipid profile measures cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, very low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides. It is done to screen for the risk of cardiovascular disease and to monitor patients who have risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.
Ferritin checks the levels of the 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.
Vitamin Profile is specially designed to test for common vitamin deficiencies, especially Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, and folic acid(Vitamin B9). This test is done if you face symptoms of vitamin D deficiency like bone malformation in children (rickets), bone weakness, or fractures in adults (osteomalacia) or any risk factors for vitamin D deficiency like old age, limited sun exposure, obesity, or recent gastric bypass surgery. This test is also done if you have symptoms of anemia like weakness, tiredness, pale skin (deficiency of B12), or folic acid deficiency. This is also a preferred test if you have symptoms or signs of nerve problems like numbness, burning in hands, feet, arms, tingling sensation which may be due to vitamin B12 deficiency.
Cystatin C is a test in which Cystatin C, a protein produced by the cells in your body is detected. A blood test for cystatin C finds your GFR (glomerular filtration rate). Your GFR number helps your healthcare provider know how well your kidneys are functioning.
Hemogram also known as a complete blood count (CBC) test is a group of tests that provides information about your blood group and blood cells like Red Blood Cells (RBC), White Blood Cells (WBC) and platelets. It is routinely performed to provide an overview of a patient's general health status. It is also helpful in detecting a variety of disorders including infections, anemia, diseases of the immune system, and blood cancers and is done to monitor an existing blood disorder and its treatment such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
ELEMENTS 22 (toxic and nutrients) test evaluates your toxic and nutrients profile. The toxic profile includes 14 tests Aluminium, Arsenic, Barium, Cadmium, Caesium, Mercury, Lead, Tin, Bismuth, Beryllium, Antimony, Strontium, Thallium and Uranium, whereas nutrients profile includes 8 tests: Cobalt, Chromium, Molybdenum, Silver, Vanadium, Selenium, Nickel, and Manganese. This test is used to determine the nutrients and toxins present in your body.
Iron Deficiency Profile is ordered when either deficiency of iron or excess of iron is suspected in your body. The symptoms of iron deficiency are pale skin, fatigue, headaches, weakness. This test is ordered if you have signs or symptoms of iron deficiency anemia like fatigue, weakness, headaches or your CBC shows that your hemoglobin and hematocrit are low and RBCs are smaller and paler indicating iron deficiency anemia. These tests can even be done if you have signs or symptoms of increased accumulation of iron in the body like joint pain, abdominal pain, fatigue, loss of body hair. This profile consists of three tests: Iron serum, Total Iron binding capacity, and percent transferrin saturation.
Thyroid profile Total is a group of tests that are done together to detect or diagnose thyroid diseases. It measures the levels of the following three hormones in the blood: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Thyroxine (T4) - Total and TriIodothyronine (T3) - Total. It is done To diagnose any suspected thyroid disease (Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism). It also monitors treatment in patients with thyroid diseases.
Zinc, Serum test measures the amount of zinc in the blood. The Serum Zinc Test is performed to determine the levels of zinc in the serum to determine deficiency to monitor treatment for zinc deficiency
Diabetic Screen test consists of the HbA1c test and the average blood sugar test. HbA1c or glycosylated hemoglobin test is an important tool in diagnosing and monitoring your diabetes. Hemoglobin, a protein found in your red blood cells, carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and glucose tends to attach to this protein. It is a reliable technique of finding your blood sugar levels as it measures average blood glucose of the past two to three months( the average lifespan of a red blood cell is 120 days). Higher the A1c results, the higher is the glucose attached to your red blood cells. This test reveals your blood glucose level and also whether or not you are at the risk of diabetes.
Ketone testing is required when the person has type I diabetes and requires management in order to avoid any kind of dangerous complications from occurring. In case a person is suffering from type I diabetes, it is usually recommended to get the ketone test done. Ketones can occur when an individual has an insufficient amount of insulin present in their body.
Copper, Serum is performed to check the presence of copper in the body of the patient. Deficiency in copper in the body can lead to several conditions. However, increased copper concentration can also be indicative of some diseases. This test is useful in diagnosing those diseases as well. To measure the amount of copper in the blood, urine, or liver tissue and to identify copper deficiency or excess. To help diagnose and monitor Wilson’s disease, Menkes disease, primary biliary cirrhosis, and Indian childhood cirrhosis. To follow up when you are being treated for a copper-related condition. To monitor copper concentrations during the third trimester of pregnancy
Fructosamine This test is helpful in assessing intermediate term glycemic control. Fructosamine reflects glycemic control in diabetic patients over the previous 2 to 3 weeks. High values indicate poor control. The fructosamine test is basically done in patients suffering from Diabetes mellitus.
Vitamin B9 also known as folic acid is a test done to evaluate the deficiency of Folic acid in your body. It is essential for the production of healthy red blood cells. These cells deliver oxygen to the entire body, so they’re vital for maintaining overall health. Folic acid is also important for the normal development of a fetus. It is associated with cell and tissue growth as well as the creation of DNA, which carries genetic information. This is why folic acid is particularly essential for women who are pregnant or who are planning to become pregnant.
Pancreas Profile consists of Lipase and Amylase tests. Amylase and lipase are key digestive enzymes. Amylase helps your body break down starches and Lipase helps your body digest fats. These tests are used to detect pancreatitis. The tests measure the amount of these enzymes circulating in your bloodstream. These enzymes are typically checked when you have symptoms of acute pancreatitis or another pancreatic disorder.
Cardiac Risk Markers This is a group of tests and markers that have been proven to indicate a person's chance of having a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack or stroke. This type of assessment includes 5 tests which are High Sensitive CRP, Lipoprotein A, Apolipoprotein A1 & B Apo A1/ApoB Ratio, Apolipoprotein - B, and Apolipoprotein - A1
