The Obesity Profile C consists of 91 test parameters distributed under 21 sub-profiles. The word “obesity” literally means too much body fat. It’s usually based on our BMI (body mass index), which one can check using a BMI calculator. BMI compares our weight to our height.
If the BMI is between 25-29.9, an individual is overweight but not obese. A BMI result over 30 is considered to be in the obese range.

Listed below are the 21 sub-profiles of the Obesity Profile C:
Vitamin sub-profile has 2 test parameters. Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 deficiency could be the factors related to fatigue, weakness, lethargy as well as the overall health status of a person. It is important to find a deficiency and begin treatment at an early stage. With the help of the two test parameters, the Vitamin profile in the Obesity test helps in detecting the lack of important vitamins in our body.
The Thyroid sub-profile tests groups three test parameters used to measure how well our thyroid gland is functioning. The thyroid is a small organ found in the lower-front of our neck. It’s responsible for regulating many of the body’s processes, like metabolism, energy generation, and mood.
The Lipid Profile test is also referred to as a complete cholesterol test. One can use it to determine the amount of “good” and “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides(a type of fat) in our blood. The Lipid sub-profile consists of 8 test parameters.
Cholesterol is a soft, waxy fat which our body needs to function properly. Though, too much cholesterol can lead to disorders like:
Atherosclerosis, a clogging or hardening of your arteries
The Liver sub-profile of the Obesity Profile C consists of 11 test parameters. This sub-profile analyses our liver health. We need to maintain the levels of various liver enzymes, bilirubin content in the blood and distinctive proteins. This profile measures the mentioned liver products for their levels.
The Diabetes sub-profile groups 2 test parameters. Those are Average Blood Glucose (ABG) and HbA1c (HBA). These test parameters determine the raised blood sugar level testing on a blood specimen. Apart from this, it also finds out any other conditions associated with Diabetes Mellitus. Diabetes profile test requires 8-12 hours of fasting before the specimen collection.
INSULIN FASTING PROFILE
The Insulin(F) or Fasting sub-profile blood test estimates fasting insulin and is helpful in the screening of insulin resistance as well as type II diabetes.
Insulin is a hormone released by the pancreas in response to intake of carbohydrates. Insulin helps in transporting the carbohydrates as well as sugars from the bloodstream into the cells. Once inside, the sugars are utilised by the cells to make energy.
FASTING BLOOD SUGAR
A Fasting Blood Sugar test calculates the amount of glucose in our blood. Glucose is a type of simple sugar. It is our body’s prime source of energy. Our body converts the carbohydrates intake into glucose. This test requires fasting of 8-12 hours before the test sample collection.
BLOOD KETONE (D3HB) PROFILE
The Blood Ketone Test, also known as the serum ketone test, looks at how much ketone is in our blood at the time. This test measures the three known ketone bodies separately. Those are:
The Fructosamine sub-profile is similar to the hemoglobin A1c test. It is not as commonly used. The fundamental difference between these tests is that the fructosamine test estimates our average blood glucose level over the past two-three weeks, whereas the A1c test is a measurement average of our blood sugar over the past two-three months. Besides, the fructosamine test estimates glycated protein in the blood instead of glycated hemoglobin. Sugar molecules which are present in our blood stick to proteins. These proteins circulate in the bloodstream for 14 to 21 days, so determining them provides a picture of the amount of sugar in our blood for that period.
IRON DEFICIENCY PROFILE(3)
The Iron Deficiency sub-profile in the Obesity Profile C helps in estimating the levels of Iron content and Transferrin in the blood. The blood cells of our body must have a good iron binding capacity. It needs legitimate monitoring which is done by the Iron Deficiency profile. It even assists in assessing heart-related problems.
The Renal (Kidney) sub-profile consists of 5 test parameters. Our body has two kidneys which perform the most important duty that is to filter the waste and excess of water from our blood. In the entire day, these kidneys filter approximately 180 litres of blood. All the important information related to kidney health can be accumulated with the help of this profile.
A Testosterone sub-profile in the Obesity Profile C measures the amount of testosterone in our blood and is reported as nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). This sub-profile is also known as a serum testosterone test.
HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE PROFILE
The Human Growth Hormone sub-profile is a blood serum test. This sub-profile is used to estimates the amount of Growth Hormone in our blood when the blood is drawn as a test sample. For the test, a test sample collector will use a needle to collect a sample of your blood.
CARDIAC RISK MARKERS PROFILE(5)
The Cardiac Risk Markers sub-profile bundles 5 test parameters. This profile looks after the Cardiovascular Condition. The profile basically focuses on the heart which gets infected due to a high level of bad cholesterol. This test even assesses the heart and its condition. The heart in our body always remains under high risks condition because of the majorly polluted environment, smoke, high blood pressure as well as cholesterol.
Homocysteine is a common amino acid in your blood. We get it mostly from consuming meat. Increased levels of it are linked to the early development of heart disease. The Homocysteine sub-profile measures the level of Homocysteine.
LEUTINISING HORMONE PROFILE
The Leutinising Hormone sub-profile determines the level of luteinising hormone (LH) in the blood.
LH is released by the pituitary gland. In women, the pituitary secrets out LH during the ovulation part of the menstrual cycle. This informs the ovaries to release a mature egg. In men, LH helps the testes to make testosterone.
This test profile can help identify the cause of fertility issues in both men and women. An increased LH level can help a woman detect the point in her cycle when it’s best to try to conceive.
The LH test can also help screen a pituitary gland disorder.
FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE PROFILE
The Follicle Stimulating Hormone sub-profile checks how much of “FSH” (follicle-stimulating hormone) is in our blood or urine. It is not enough to screen a condition, and an individual will probably take other hormone blood tests simultaneously if needed.
A Prolactin (PRL) sub-profile estimates how much of a hormone called prolactin we have in our blood. The hormone is released in your pituitary gland, which is located just below our brain.
COMPLETE HEMOGRAM PROFILE(28)
A Complete Hemogram sub-profile is a blood test used to assess the overall health and detect a diversity of disorders, including anaemia, infection as well as leukaemia.
A Complete Hemogram sub-profile has 28 test parameters which measure several components and features of our blood, including:
Red blood cells, which carry oxygen
Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying element in red blood cells
White blood cells, which fight infection
Abnormal rise or fall in cell counts as revealed in a complete blood count may point that an individual has an underlying medical condition that calls for further assessment.
Hematocrit, the proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component/plasma, in the blood
Platelets, which assist in blood clotting
The Steroid sub-profile aka Steroids is a test meant for newborns. Urinary steroid profiling gives a composite image of the adrenal function. Oestrogen, also aldosterone metabolites are not identified under normal circumstances. Steroid metabolism in newborns is abnormally different than in children and adults. This is due to the urinary steroid profile in an infant avoids problems in interpreting reports derived by other techniques which can be subject to interference from standard steroids present at this time of life. So it is advised to go for this test when an infant is born.
CYSTATIN C PROFILE
The Cystatin C sub-profile assess the kidney function if an individual has known or suspected kidney related issues, but only in certain settings when traditional kidney function analyses are misleading.
