Profiles included in child nutrition and toxicity:
1. Blood elements profile.
2. Vitamin profile.
3. Thyroid stimulating hormone.
4. Iron deficiency.
5. Liver profile.
6. Lipid profile.
7. Kidney profile.
9. glucose -6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD).
10. Complete hemogram.
1. BLOOD ELEMENTS PROFILE:
This profile measures the deficiencies, imbalances in vital elements. It includes 9 test parameters. Test parameters are cadmium, caesium, cobalt, lead, mercury, etc. Blood elements profile is significant to detect :
1. Dietary adequacy.
2. Renal and endocrine function.
3. Toxic element assessment.
4. Lack or excess condition.
2. VITAMIN PROFILE:
Vitamin D total, vitamin B12 and folate are 3 test parameters of vitamin profile. Vitamin B12 is responsible for the functioning of the nervous system, production of red blood cells, and metabolism. The main role of folic acid is DNA synthesis and formation of RBC. vitamin D is used to maintain calcium homeostasis. Vitamin D2 and D3 are two forms of Vitamin D.
Symptoms of vitamin deficiency:
1. Yellowish and pale skin.
2. Irregular heartbeats.
3. Muscle weakness.
5. Shortness of breath.
3. THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE:
Thyroid stimulating hormone is formed by the pituitary gland. It measures the level of TSH in the blood. It regulates the amount of hormones released by the thyroid gland. If the production of thyroid stimulating hormone is more, then the thyroid gland will release more amount of hormones. The thyroid is categorised in 2 types. Types are hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism:
1. Dry skin.
2. Weight gain.
3. Puffy face.
Symptoms of hyperthyroidism:
2. Increased sweating.
4. Heat intolerance.
4. IRON DEFICIENCY:
Iron deficiency profile is to detect the deficiency of iron in the body. Common disease caused by a deficiency of iron is iron deficiency anaemia. It has 3 test parameters. Iron is important for the production of red blood cells. Test parameters of an iron profile are serum iron, total iron binding capacity, or %transferrin saturation.
Symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia:
1. Cold hands and feet.
3. Inflammation or soreness in the tongue.
4. Brittle nails.
5. Chest pain.
5. LIVER PROFILE:
It has 11 test parameters. This profile is used to determine the functioning of the liver. It will measure the amount of liver enzymes, bilirubin, and proteins in the blood.
Liver function test is ordered in the following conditions:
1. To detect hepatitis and cirrhosis.
2. If a person has gall bladder disease.
3. If a person has high blood pressure, anaemia, and diabetes.
4. If a person is an alcoholic.
6. LIPID PROFILE:
Lipid profile test is for evaluating the amount of cholesterol residing inside the body. Cholesterol is a waxy and soft fat inside the body. High level of cholesterol is not good for health. It can lead to stroke, heart disease and atherosclerosis. The high cholesterol level is directly proportional to diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and peripheral vascular disease.
Symptoms of high cholesterol level:
2. Heart attack.
3. Chest pain.
4. Pain while walking.
7. KIDNEY PROFILE:
The kidney is responsible for the production of vitamin D, red blood cells, and hormones which regulates blood pressure. The main function of the kidney is to filter all the waste material that resides inside the body.
Symptoms of kidney problems:
1. High blood pressure.
2. Blood in the urine.
3. Painful urination.
4. Difficulty in urination.
5. Persistent nausea.
6. Pain or pressure in the chest.
This profile has 5 test parameter in total. It is a blood disorder that can be inherited from a mother to the child. It also affects the production of haemoglobin. When the haemoglobin production is not enough, red blood cells will not function properly. It will lead to anaemia.
9. GLUCOSE-6-PHOSPHATE DEHYDROGENASE (G6PD):
G6PD is an enzyme in the blood that is important for the functioning of cells. G6PD protects red blood cells from harmful byproducts. Hemolytic anaemia is a common disease caused by low production of red blood cells.
Symptoms of hemolytic anaemia:
4. Pale skin.
5. Brown and red urine.
10. COMPLETE HEMOGRAM:
This profile covers a vast number of test parameters. It will evaluate the complete blood count of the body. It includes 2 test parameters. Some of these parameters are hemoglobulin, platelets, hematocrit, red blood cells and white blood cells.
