Overview


What is Senior Citizen Advanced Package?

Senior citizen advance package is a group of tests for elderly people who want to monitor their health. This package helps you to live your best life even in old age. It includes a variety of tests that target multiple aspects of your health such as lipid profile, diabetic screening, antibody levels, kidney profile, liver profile, total thyroid profile and more.

In addition to all the features of senior citizen basic package, it includes rheumatoid factor and anti cyclic citrullinated peptide tests which help to detect arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

What does Senior Citizen Advanced Package Measure?

Following tests are a part of the senior citizen advance package:


BUN/Creatinine Ratio compares the levels of nitrogen as urea in blood to the levels of creatinine in the blood. It is also used to check for dehydration since the BUN level increases in dehydration while creatinine levels remain the same. Low BUN to creatinine ratio can be caused due to a low protein diet, liver cirrhosis, rhabdomyolysis (muscle disease), syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) as well as during pregnancy.

Total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol ratio test is done to determine the potential risk of developing heart diseases in the future. A higher level of blood HDL (good cholesterol) is normally associated with a lower risk of developing plaques that further lowers the risk of stroke or heart attacks.

Kidney function test 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 the treatment efficacy of kidney diseases.

LDL/HDL ratio test is a part of the lipid profile that measures the quantity as well as the ratio of various lipids present in the body that are responsible for various diseases. A high LDL/HDL ratio indicates an increased risk of heart diseases and stroke.

The urea creatinine ratio measures the amount of uric acid & creatinine in your blood. Blood urea test is most often used in:
-Diagnosing gout
-Diagnose kidney stones
-Monitor the level of uric acid of people undergoing certain cancer treatments.

A calcium test is ordered for the general medical examination. It is used as a part of routine health screening. This test may be ordered for someone who has:
-Kidney disease, or those with kidney failure
-Symptoms of high calcium such as loss of appetite, vomiting, fatigue, weakness, constipation, abdominal pain, urinary frequency, and increased thirst
-Symptoms of very low calcium such as stomach cramps, muscle cramps
-Other diseases that may lead to abnormal blood calcium such as thyroid disease, parathyroid disorder, malabsorption, malnutrition, or even cancer.

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.

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.

Chloride test is ordered when acidosis or alkalosis is suspected or when you suffer from an acute condition with symptoms that may include the following:
-vomiting/ diarrhea
-Fatigue
-Weakness
-Difficulty breathing

Globulin test is ordered when symptoms of an immunoglobulin deficiency such as infections of the respiratory tract (lungs, sinus) or digestive system such as chronic diarrhea are seen. This test is also done when a person has signs of chronic infection and inflammation or when there is an abnormal immunoglobulin production and its level alters in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

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.

Potassium is a test that is ordered when the kidney disease is suspected. It measures specific chemicals called electrolytes in the urine.

Complete blood count (CBC) 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.

Albumin/Globulin ratio signifies the amoi=unt of albumin vs globulin in the blood. This test is ordered if you have signs and symptoms, such as:
-Unexplained weight loss
-Fatigue
-Swelling caused by extra fluid in your tissue (edema)
-Symptoms of liver disease, kidney disease, or bone marrow disorder

A diabetic screening test consists of the HbA1c test and the average blood sugar test. HbA1c or glycosylated hemoglobin test acts as an important guide 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 present in our body tends to attach to this protein. This action can provide information regarding the fluctuations in blood sugar levels. HbA1c measures average blood glucose of the past two to three months (the average lifespan of a red blood cell is 120 days). Increased A1c levels indicate the presence of an increase in the amount of glucose in your red blood cells. This test reveals your average 3 monthly blood glucose levels which can help determine whether you are at risk of diabetes or not.

Anti Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide antibody test is ordered usually along with an RF test when someone has signs and symptoms of previously undiagnosed inflammatory arthritis or has been diagnosed with undifferentiated arthritis. Signs and symptoms may include:
Painful, warm, swollen joints of the hands and wrists
Pain that affects neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, and/or feet
Stiffness of joints in the morning that improves during the day

Non-HDL Cholesterol is a test that measures the total cholesterol in the body except for the high-density lipoprotein (HDL). This test is ordered for people who are at a higher risk of developing heart diseases.

Sodium is a test that is ordered when the kidney disease is suspected. It measures specific chemicals called electrolytes in the urine.

The 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.

Gamma Glutamyl Transferase test may be ordered along with other tests or as a follow up to other liver function tests when you have signs or symptoms of certain liver diseases, such as:

-Weakness
-Abdominal swelling and/or pain
-Jaundice
-Dark urine, light-colored stool
-Loss of appetite
-Nausea and vomiting
-Itching (pruritus)

Blood urea measures the amount of uric acid in your blood. Blood urea  test is most often used in:

-Diagnosing gout
-Diagnose kidney stones
-Monitor the level of uric acid of people undergoing certain cancer treatments.

The rheumatoid factor (RF) quantitative test measures the amount of rheumatoid factor (RF) in your blood. Rheumatoid factors are proteins produced by your immune system, which attack healthy joints, glands, or other normal cells by mistake. An RF test is most often used to help diagnose Rheumatoid arthritis.

BUN measures the amount of uric acid in your blood. Blood urea nitrogen test is most often used in:

Diagnosing gout
Diagnose kidney stones
Monitor the level of uric acid of people undergoing certain cancer treatments.

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.

Fasting Blood Glucose Test is done to measure the levels of glucose in the blood after a period of fasting. This test is done to screen and diagnose prediabetes and diabetes.
