General health check-up tests
- Liver function tests (LFT): are performed to ensure the proper functioning of the organs and identify any potential diseases that could cause problems if left untreated.
- Fasting Blood Glucose (or) Blood sugar: is tested to identify potential diabetes or prediabetes conditions. This test is very important as early detection can prevent the onset of the disease if you make drastic simple lifestyle changes in the early stages.
- Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c):is your average blood glucose (sugar) levels for the last two to three months.
- Complete blood count: also known as a full blood count, is a set of medical laboratory tests that provide information about the cells in a person's blood. The CBC indicates the counts of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets, the concentration of hemoglobin, and the hematocrit.
- ESR stands for erythrocyte sedimentation rate. It is commonly called a "sed rate." It is a test that indirectly measures the level of certain proteins in the blood. This measurement correlates with the amount of inflammation in the body.
- Thyroid profile (T3, T4, TSH) test refers to a set of blood tests that measures the levels of the thyroid hormones secreted from the thyroid gland. It is also known as the thyroid function test. The thyroid gland is located at the front part of the neck and it produces thyroid hormones namely: triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).
- Renal Function Test without Urine Routine (RFT): is performed to measure the levels of various substances in the blood to determine how the kidneys are functioning.
- Lipid profile or lipid panel: is a panel of blood tests that serves as an initial screening tool for abnormalities in lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides.
- Prostate-specific antigen (PSA): test measures the level of PSA in your blood. The prostate is a small gland that is part of a man's reproductive system. It is located below the bladder and makes a fluid that is part of semen.
- Vitamin D is a family of compounds that is essential for the proper growth and formation of teeth and bones. This test measures the level of vitamin D in the blood.
- Vitamin B-12 is necessary for several bodily processes, including nerve function and the production of DNA and red blood cells.

- Lipase is a type of protein made by your pancreas, an organ located near your stomach. Lipase helps your body digest fats. It's normal to have a small amount of lipase in your blood. But, a high level of lipase can mean you have pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas, or another type of pancreas disease.
- Calcium is a blood test to measure the amount of calcium in the blood. Serum calcium is usually measured to screen for or monitor bone diseases or calcium-regulation disorders (diseases of the parathyroid gland or kidneys).
- Iron tests measure different substances in the blood to check iron levels in your body. Iron is a mineral that's essential for making red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Iron is also important for healthy muscles, bone marrow, and organ function. Iron levels that are too low or too high can cause serious health problems.
- Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC): is the main protein in the blood that binds to iron and transports it throughout the body. A transferrin test directly measures the level in the blood. Alternatively, transferrin may be measured indirectly (or converted by calculation) so that its level is expressed as the amount of iron it is capable of binding. This is called the total iron-binding capacity (TIBC).
- Urine Routine is a test of your urine. It's used to detect and manage a wide range of disorders, such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease, and diabetes.
