What Are The Tests Included Under Infection Checkup Profile?
There are four significant tests included in the infection checkup profile. These are very much necessary tests to analyze the immunity power of the human body for infections.
- Interleukin-6: Interleukin-6 is a type of protein that is produced by various cells. This is potentially useful as a market for the immunity system. This test is done to monitor the inflammatory response—for example, lupus, sepsis, infection, or to evaluate stroke and cardiovascular diseases. It is one of the large groups of molecules that are termed to be cytokines.
- Procalcitonin: It is a substance that is produced by several cells in the human body. The level of procalcitonin in the blood can vary significantly when infection or sepsis is observed in the body.
- Ferritin: Our body relies on the iron present in the RBC (red blood cells) to carry the oxygen to all the different cells. Ferritin is a type of vital protein that stores iron. It releases it when our body requires it. If these ferritin levels are either low or too much higher than the adequate range can lead to several problems. That’s why the ferritin test helps to analyze the actual range of levels present in the body.
- D-Dimer: D-Dimer is one of the vital protein fragments that are produced in case the blood clot gets dissolved in the human body. It is usually undetectable at a very low level unless there is a severe breakdown of blood clots. This test is done to determine the likelihood of blood clots presence. If the results are negative D-dimer, then it shows the presence of a thrombus.
