List of sub profiles included in Thyrocare Diabetic Profile B:
- Liver profile: The liver helps the body to break down the food, produce protein, clean your blood, store energy, etc. This test is used to diagnose liver problems. Hepatitis is a common disease occurring in the liver. It includes 11 test parameters. Some of these tests are protein-total, serum albumin, serum globulin, etc.
- Lipid profile: It is also called a lipid panel. It has 8 test parameters. This test is used to identify genetic diseases, cardiovascular diseases, pancreatitis etc. Lipid profile has 4 components. These are HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, and Total cholesterol.
- Kidney profile: The kidney plays a critical role in the production of red blood cells, vitamin D, and hormones that regulate blood circulation or pressure.
- Thyroid profile: It includes 3 test parameters. Test parameters are total triiodothyronine, total thyroxine, and thyroid stimulating hormone. Triiodothyronine and thyroxine are two major hormones produced by the thyroid gland. If your gland produces a large amount of hormones, this condition is known as hypothyroidism. If your gland produces does not produce enough hormones, this condition is known as hyperthyroidism.
- Lp-PLA2: Lp-PLA2 is an enzyme that is responsible for the inflammation of blood vessels. This test is suggested by doctors when someone has a genetic history of CHD, metabolic syndrome.
- Diabetic Screen profile: Diabetes is of 2 types. First is Type-1 diabetes. In this type, your immune system destroys the beta cells produced by the pancreas. The pancreas is responsible for the production of insulin. Second is Type-2 diabetes. In type-2 diabetes, insulin production is enough, but the cells are not capable of using it well.
- Iron deficiency profile: This test is for measuring the deficiency of iron in the body. It includes 3 test parameters. Test parameters are Total iron binding capacity, Serum iron, % Transferrin saturation. Anemia disease is occurred due to deficiency of iron.
- Electrolytes profile: This profile has 2 elements. First one is sodium and second is chloride. These two elements are electrolytes found in our body. It is important for conducting electrical impulses in the body.
- Homocysteine profile: It is a non-protein amino acid found in the blood. High level of homocysteine is risky for the health. It will lead to blood clots, heart stroke, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, etc. homocysteine level is highly depends upon the diet and genetic history of an individual.
- Pancreas profile: This test is used to diagnose any pancreas diseases. It has 2 test parameters. Tests are amylase and lipase. Amylase and lipase are digestive enzymes in the body. The common disease occurs in the pancreas is pancreatitis.
- C-Peptide: This test is used to measure the amount of c-peptide in the blood and urine. Insulin and c-peptide are released in the same amount by the pancreas. So, it is also used to measure the production of insulin. C-peptide test can tell the difference between Type-1 diabetes and Type-2 diabetes. If your pancreas produces no insulin, it falls under type-1 diabetes. In type-2 diabetes, the body produces too much insulin but not able to use it well. Due to which the level of C-Peptide is higher than normal.
- Complete hemogram profile: Complete hemogram profile covers a wide range of tests. It is used to measure the total count of the blood. It has 28 test parameters. Some of these tests are platelets count, RBC, WBC, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets-total etc.
- Insulin profile: It is used to store glucose in the body. Insulin is a hormone and it is produced by the pancreas. It also controls the level of glucose in the body. It also helps in transporting glucose throughout the body. Hypoglycemia is occurred due to the low level of insulin.
- Cardiac risk markers profile: This profile has 5 test parameters. It is used to check the chance of having heart diseases. A lipid profile is important to test to check cardiac risk assessment. Some of these tests are Lipoprotein, C-reactive protein, Apolipoprotein-A1 etc.
