Healthy New Year Package
What is Healthy New Year Package?
It is well known that ‘prevention is better than cure’ and this package is designed specifically for that purpose. It includes a unique diagnostic profile of tests for a comprehensive health evaluation at an early age. It screens the most common health conditions related to thyroid, heart, liver, kidney, bones and blood. Additionally, it also tests for vitamins like Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D. You should get this package done if you are above 30 years of age and want a thorough evaluation of the overall health status of your body.
What does Healthy New Year Package Measure?
The Healthy new year package is a lab test package meant to diagnose various aspects of your health. This package is suitable for males and females of all age groups. It includes a total of 53 tests for a comprehensive health evaluation. It is also ideal for those already suffering from diabetes, thyroid disorders, vitamin deficiency, kidney or liver disease, to monitor the progress of their treatment. The following tests are a part of the package.
HbA1c test 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.
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. It includes tests like alanine transaminase, aspartate aminotransferase, protein Total serum, gamma-glutamyl transferase, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin.
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. It comprises of tests such as urea, creatinine and uric acid.
Vitamin B12 tests are recommended to find out the levels of VItamin B12 in your body. This test is generally ordered when symptoms like tingling in the hands and feet, racing heartbeat, confusion, dementia, weakness and loss of appetite are present. This test is also taken if you are suspected of pernicious anemia. Pernicious anemia refers to a reduction in red blood cells. It occurs when your intestines can’t absorb vitamin B-12, which is essential for red blood cell production.
Complete 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. It also measures your ESR(erythrocyte sedimentation rate).
Iron studies comprise of three tests, which are serum transferrin, serum Iron and Total Iron binding capacity. Iron tests can be ordered when results from a routine complete blood count (CBC) show that a person's hemoglobin is low or when their red blood cells are smaller and paler than normal (microcytic and hypochromic). This may indicate iron deficiency anemia even though other clinical symptoms may not have developed yet. Iron tests may also be ordered when symptoms of anemia such as fatigue, tiredness, dizziness, weakness, headaches and pale skin are present.
This test can even be ordered when iron overload is suspected. Signs and symptoms of iron overload differ from person to person and tend to get worse over time. They are due to iron accumulation in the blood and tissues, which may include joint pain fatigue, weakness lack of energy, abdominal pain, loss of sex drive, organ damage, such as in the heart and/or liver
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 triglycerides HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol. It is done to screen for the risk of cardiovascular disease and to monitor patients who have risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.
Thyroid profile Total is a group of tests that are done together to diagnose or detect 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.
Vitamin D total 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.
