What does Early Winters Package Measure?
Eary winters package with infection screening helps you keep a check on your health with the arrival of winters. It also screens for certain infections that may be present in your body. The following tests are a part of this package:
Complete blood count (CBC)
A complete blood count test (CBC) is a group of tests that gives information about the type of cells present in your blood. A Complete blood count test includes components of blood including
Hemoglobin, Red blood cells(RBS’s), White blood cells(WBC), and platelets. This test gives an overview of the patient’s general health status and a broad number of health-related conditions such as anemia, infection, and even cancer.
Complete blood count test is an effective and commonly performed routine test that evaluates
-Your overall health as part of a routine check-up
-Diagnose a variety of disorders including infections, anemia, diseases of the immune system, and blood cancers.
-To monitor an existing blood disorder and treatment such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy
-CBC measures the following important values of these blood components
Red blood cell count (RBC or erythrocyte count): These are the most abundant blood cells. RBCs contain hemoglobin which helps in the transportation of oxygen to the tissues. RBC count is the measurement of the number of RBCs in a given volume of blood.
Hemoglobin (Hb): It is a protein found in red blood cells (RBCs) that carries oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues, exchanges the oxygen for carbon dioxide, and then carries the carbon dioxide back to the lungs.
Hematocrit (Hct): It is the measurement of the blood volume occupied by RBCs. It is expressed in percentage and also known as packed cell volume (PCV).
White blood cell count (WBC or leukocyte count): These are key components of the immune system and thus protect the body from various infections and cancers. Total Leucocyte count (TLC) is the measurement of the total number of leukocytes (WBCs) in a given volume of blood.
WBC differential count: White blood cells fight infection in your body. CBC with differential measures the number or percentage of each type of these white blood cells.
Neutrophils, Basophils, and Eosinophils are the type of WBC’s that are called Granulocytes because of the presence of granules inside these cells. Whereas, Monocytes and lymphocytes are agranulocytes that do not have any granules within them.
Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) is the average volume of a red blood cell.
Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) is the average amount of hemoglobin in the average red blood cell.
Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) is the average concentration of hemoglobin in a given volume of red cells.
Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a measurement of the variability of red blood cell size
Platelet count thrombocytes: Platelets (also called) are disc-shaped cell fragments without a nucleus that help in blood clotting. Platelet count is the measurement of the number of platelets in a given volume of blood.
Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) is a measurement of the average size of platelets.
Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) is the average volume of a red blood cell.
Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) is the average amount of hemoglobin in the average red blood cell.
Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) is the average concentration of hemoglobin in a given volume of red cells.
Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW)is a measurement of the variability of red blood cell size
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.
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.
HbA1c or glycosylated hemoglobin test is an important tool in diagnosing and monitoring your diabetes. The glycosylated hemoglobin test measures the amount of hemoglobin present in the blood that has sugar attached to it. A glycosylated hemoglobin test is used widely for the diagnosis and screening of prediabetes and diabetes.
Iron profile: This test 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.
URINE ROUTINE TEST
Appearance & color
Your urine sample will be checked for appearance. Urine is usually clear. Cloudiness or an unusual odor may indicate an infection. If your urine contains blood it may make it look red or brown.
Acidity (pH): The pH level indicates the acid levels of urine. Abnormal pH levels may indicate a kidney disorder or urinary tract disorder.
Specific gravity: It measures the concentration of your urine. It shows how much-concentrated particles are there in your urine. A higher than normal concentration often represents dehydration.
Protein: A mild increase in protein levels in urine is usually not a cause for concern. But, a number higher than normal can indicate a kidney problem.
Glucose: The detection of sugar on this test may indicate high sugar levels, which usually calls for follow-up testing for diabetes.
Ketones: Similar to sugar, any amount of ketones detected in your urine could be a sign of diabetes, which requires follow-up testing.
Bilirubin: Bilirubin in your urine indicates liver disease or damage.
Bile Pigments: Bile pigments in urine can indicate underlying liver disease such as jaundice.
Nitrites: If the product of white blood cells, such as nitrites is detected in your urine, it may be a sign of a urinary tract infection.
Red blood cells: Blood in your urine may be a sign of kidney damage, infection, kidney or bladder stones, kidney or bladder cancer, or blood disorders. This will require further testing.
Mucus: A large amount of mucus in urine may indicate urinary tract infection, kidney stones, sexually transmitted diseases, irritable bowel syndrome or even bladder cancer.
Pathological casts: These are the tube-shaped particles that can be examined under a microscope. This test indicates any underlying kidney condition.
Pus cells: Also known as Pyuria, it is the condition in which white blood cells or other blood cells are present in the urine. This may indicate an underlying urinary tract infection, sepsis, or pneumonia.
Epithelial cells: These are the cells present on the surface of your body. While a small number of epithelial cells in your urine are normal, a higher level may indicate urinary tract infection, kidney or liver disease, and certain kinds of cancer.
Crystals: Crystals in urine are also known as crystalluria. This test is a part of urinalysis and it reveals kidney stones or any other kidney disease
Malarial falciparum and vivax antigen testing are rapid diagnostic tests used for detecting malaria antigens (proteins) in a person's blood and indicate a positive result by a color change on the testing strip also known as "dipstick" tests. The type of rapid test used is dependent on the patient population and the goals of providing a rapid test result.
The Widal test is one method that may be used to help make a presumptive diagnosis of enteric fever, also known as typhoid fever. This test is ordered when symptoms such as high fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation,fatigue, headache, weight loss, and a rashes. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial as serious complications, including severe intestinal bleeding or perforation, can develop within a few weeks of infection.
Vitamin D3 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.
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.
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, and triglycerides. It is done to screen for the risk of cardiovascular disease and to monitor patients who have risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.
Glucose fasting blood test determines the normal fasting blood glucose levels in your blood. This test evaluates whether your blood glucose is in a healthy range or not. A value more or less than the reference range indicates high and low blood sugar levels.
High sensitive CRP: High sensitive C reactive protein is a test that measures the amount of C reactive protein in the blood. The level of this marker is elevated in cases of inflammation in the body. This test can evaluate your risk of heart diseases such as coronary artery disease.
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) measures the rate of sedimentation of erythrocytes (red blood cells) or how quickly they settle at the bottom of a test tube containing a blood sample. Usually, red blood cells settle relatively slowly. A faster-than-normal rate shows inflammation in the body, which could be a result of an infection or injury. Inflammation may also be a sign of an immune disorder, chronic disease, or any other medical condition like arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, or vasculitis.
EGFR or estimated glomerular filtration rate test measures kidney function. It can help determine any underlying chronic kidney disease. This test is ordered when there is:
-Swelling or puffiness, especially around the eyes or in the face, ankles, thighs, or abdomen.
-Bloody, foamy, or coffee-colored urine
-Significant reduction in the amount of urine
-Burning feeling or abnormal discharge during urination, or a change in the frequency of urination, particularly at night
-Pain below the ribs or mid-back pain (location close to the kidneys)
