HEART/HYPERTENSION PROFILE:
Do you know your lipid profile? A simple blood test could help determine your risk of heart attack or a stroke.
Age is not a risk factor that can be controlled; the best way to reduce your risk is by knowing the results of your lipid profile and taking the necessary steps to get your cholesterol levels under control.
• TOTAL CHOLESTEROL
• TRIGLYCERIDE
• LDL-CHOLESTEROL
• HDL-CHOLESTEROL
• CPK
• LDH
• SGPT
• GGT
• ECG


LIVER FUNCTION TEST
Liver function tests are used to aid in the differential diagnosis of liver disease and injury, and to help monitor response to treatment.
Liver function tests, or LFTs, include tests for bilirubin, a breakdown product of hemoglobin, and ammonia, a protein byproduct that is normally converted into urea by the liver before being excreted by the kidneys. LFTs also commonly include tests to measure levels of several enzymes, which are special proteins that help the body break down and use (metabolize) other substances. Enzymes that are often measured in LFTs include gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT); alanine aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT); aspartate aminotransferase (AST or SGOT); and alkaline phosphatase (ALP). LFTs also may include prothrombin time (PT), a measure of how long it takes for the blood to clot.

KIDNEY FUNCTION TEST
Serum creatinine (Cr) – a muscle protein that circulates in the bloodstream and is cleared by the kidneys

Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) – a red blood cell and protein waste product that circulates in the bloodstream and is excreted by the kidneys

Electrolytes
• Sodium
• Potassium
• Chloride
• Bi-Carbonate
It is important to keep a balance of electrolytes in your body, because they affect the amount of water in your body, blood acidity (pH), muscle action, and other important processes. You lose electrolytes when you sweat, and you must replace them by drinking fluids.
Electrolytes exist in the blood as acids, bases, and salts (such as sodium, calcium, potassium, chlorine, magnesium, and bicarbonate). They can be measured by laboratory studies of the blood.
• Urine microscopy
• Urinalysis
Here are four facts you should know:
1. Early damage can go unnoticed for as long as a decade.
2. An early sign of a problem include raised levels of urea and creatinine
3. Late signs of kidney damage are severely elevated levels of creatinine, urea, and protein in the urine.
4. Early detection and treatment may successfully stabilize and maintain kidney function.

RHEUMATOID FACTOR
Rheumatoid factor is an antibody that is measurable in the blood. Rheumatoid factor is actually an antibody that can bind to other antibodies. Antibodies are normal proteins in our blood that are important parts of our immune system. Rheumatoid factor is an antibody that is not usually present in the normal individual.
Rheumatoid factor Test
Rheumatoid factor is commonly used as a blood test for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid factor is present in about 80% of adults (but a much lower proportion of children) with rheumatoid arthritis.
Can rheumatoid factor be present in a patient without rheumatoid arthritis?
Yes. Rheumatoid factor is also present in patients with other conditions, including other connective tissue diseases (such as systemic lupus erythematosus), some infectious diseases (such as infectious hepatitis, syphilis, infectious mononucleosis, parasites, and tuberculosis), liver disease, and sarcoidosis. Rheumatoid factor can also sometimes be present in normal individuals without diseases. This occurs more frequently in persons with family members who have rheumatoid arthritis.


PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN
or PSA, is a protein produced by the prostate gland that may be found in elevated levels in the blood when a person develops certain diseases of the prostate, notably prostate cancer. PSA is specific, because it is present only in prostate tissue. It is not specific for prostate cancer, however, as it may also be elevated in men with benign enlargement of this organ. The PSA test has been called the "male PAP test."
Doctors’ recommendations for screening vary. Some encourage yearly screening for men over age 50, and some advice men who are at a higher risk for prostate cancer to begin screening at age 40 or 45. Others caution against routine screening, while still others counsel men about the risks and benefits on an individual basis and encourage men to make personal decisions about screening.
The blood test for PSA is used to screen older men to detect prostate cancer at an early stage, and also to monitor its response to treatment. After lung cancer, prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men in the United States. Any routine physical exam of a man aged 50 and older should include a digital rectal examination (DRE), in which the doctor's finger probes the surface of the prostate gland to detect any suspicious area of hardness or a tumor mass. If the examination suggests that a tumor may in fact be present or if the examiner is uncertain the logical next step is a PSA test. If the PSA test is positive, a sample of prostate tissue (biopsy) may be taken to confirm that cancer is present. If negative, the test may be repeated immediately to confirm the diagnosis, or repeated the next year. Many physicians today routinely do both a DRE and a PSA test each year on their older male patients, so that, if cancer does develop, it will be found at an early stage will be easier to treat. The combination of a DRE and a PSA test can detect approximately 80% of all prostate cancers.
