Special Blood Test Packages
APAS (Anti Phospholipid Antibody Syndrome) Test is to determine the presence of antibodies that can cause blood clots anywhere in the body that can manifest in stroke, heart attack and deep vein thrombosis in the young (< 45 yrs old). APAS is also one of the most common causes of recurrent miscarriages. The APAS test is important for women who are dealing with infertility, particularly recurrent miscarriages. Recurrent pregnancy loss has been associated with antiphospholipid antibodies (APA) including anticardiolipin and lupus anticoagulant. However, it is not just people with fertility problems that have APAS. Patients with APAS may have lupus or other rheumatologic conditions. Between 2% and 15% of the healthy population have APAS in their system, they just don’t know it.
The Well-being package is a regular periodic monitoring of one’s health status. This package helps you begin your disease-prevention program and keep your health in check. CBC measures the number, variety, percentage, concentration, and quality of platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells, and thus is useful in screening for infections, anemia, and other hematological abnormalities. FBS analyzes your blood sugar levels and is mainly used in screening for any pre-diabetes or diabetes. Lipid profile is a more extensive screening of the blood to determine risk of coronary heart disease, and the tests are good indicators of whether someone is likely to have a heart attack or stroke caused by blockage of blood vessels (hardening of the arteries). The lipid profile is used to guide providers in deciding how a person at risk should be treated.
