If your white blood cell is higher than average, it indicates that you have bone marrow and immune system disorder diseases. If your platelet count is lower than normal, then it is known as Thrombocytopenia. Thrombocytopenia causes due to deficiency of platelets. If your platelets level is higher than normal, this condition is known as Thrombocytosis. Thrombocytosis is due to the production of an excessive number of platelets. Some of the tests included in this profile are Packed cell volume, Nucleated RBC, Basophils percentage, etc.
Second profile is Diabetes profile. This panel is for screening your blood sugar and other medical conditions related to diabetes mellitus. This profile includes 2 test parameters only. These tests are HbA1c and Average blood glucose. HbA1c test is for measuring the average blood sugar levels over a period of 3 months.

Third profile of this package is Thyroid profile. It includes 3 test parameters. Test parameters are Total thyroxine, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), and Triiodothyronine (T3). The tests are for measuring the working of thyroid gland. The thyroid produces two hormones, i.e., triiodothyronine and thyroxine. If your gland doesn’t produce enough amount of these two hormones, you may gain weight, suffering from depression and lack of energy. This is known as hypothyroidism. If your gland is producing an excessive amount of these hormones, you may lose weight, anxiety, and tremors. This condition is known as hyperthyroidism. TSH is a hormone which stimulates thyroid gland to produce T3 and thyroxine.
