The Full Blood Count (FBC) is one of the most commonly performed tests. Anaemia, inflammation and infection can be detected. Direct observation of a blood sample under the microscope may diagnose various illnesses such as leukaemia or thrombophilia (too many platelets that may lead to occluded blood vessels). Blood biochemistry tests. Plasma, the liquid component of blood after red and white blood cells have been removed can be tested for enzymes, proteins and trace elements. Each of the parameters tested may indicate which organ system such as the liver or kidneys may not be functioning properly. Profiles have been organized so that most parameters relating to specific organs can be tested in groups aiding accuracy. Enzymes (e.g. ALAT, ASPAT), Hormones (e.g. fT3, fT4 and TSH), Proteins (e.g. albumin, immunoglobulin), Electrolytes (e.g. Na, K), trace elements (e.g. Cu Mg) • Basic biochemistry profile Glucose, urea, creatinine, bilirubin, AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), albumin, protein, cholesterol, triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein (HDL cholesterol), low-density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol), calcium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, chloride and uric acid. • Renal (Kidney) profile Sodium, potassium, urea and creatinine • Hepatic profile Transaminases (alanine and asparagine), gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase, bilirubin and albumin. • Bone profile Protein, albumin, calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase. • Cardiac profile Transaminases (alanine and asparagine), creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase and potassium. • Lipid profile Cholesterol, triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). • Thyroid profile Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Your doctor is probably the best person to advise what test you need after you have discussed together your personal and your family medical history. Always seek professional medical advice as many illnesses may produce symptoms that you may not relate to the causative mechanism. For example, a peptic ulcer may cause fatigue due to chronic blood loss. • Routine tests to evaluate patient health (obligatory for some professions). • Screening tests: Performed for health assessment.
