Which parameters are measured in the Health Test Basic?

Creatinine
Creatinine is a waste product produced by muscle metabolism, commonly used as an indicator of kidney function. It is generated from creatine, a molecule important for energy production in muscles, and is filtered out of the blood by the kidneys and excreted in urine.
Urea
Urea is a waste product formed in the liver through the metabolic breakdown of proteins. After its formation, urea is transported to the kidneys and is eventually excreted in the urine. The measurement of urea levels in the blood, often referred to as blood urea nitrogen (BUN), is a common test used to assess kidney function. Elevated levels of urea in the blood can indicate impaired kidney function or other conditions affecting the body's ability to process and excrete waste.
GGT
Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) is an enzyme found in many organs throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the liver. GGT plays a key role in the metabolism of glutathione, an important antioxidant. It's involved in the transfer of amino acids and peptides across cellular membranes and in glutathione metabolism. Elevated GGT levels are commonly used as a marker for liver damage, particularly in detecting bile duct obstructions and liver diseases related to alcohol consumption.
ALT (SGPT)
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), formerly known as serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (SGPT), is an enzyme primarily found in the liver. It plays a vital role in metabolizing proteins and is crucial for various metabolic processes. ALT levels in the blood are indicative of liver health, as the enzyme is released into the bloodstream when liver cells are damaged or inflamed.
ALP (Alkaline phosphatase)
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme found in various tissues throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the liver, bones, kidneys, and digestive system. ALP plays a crucial role in breaking down proteins in the body and is involved in processes like dephosphorylation. In the liver, ALP is linked to the bile ducts and is useful in diagnosing liver and bone diseases. Elevated levels can indicate bile duct obstruction or bone diseases, while low levels can be seen in certain genetic disorders and malnutrition.
Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found in all cells of the body. It is essential for making hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help you digest foods. Your body makes all the cholesterol it needs, but it's also found in foods from animal sources, such as meat and dairy products. There are two main types of cholesterol: low-density lipoprotein (LDL), often called "bad" cholesterol because high levels can lead to plaque buildup in arteries, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL), known as "good" cholesterol because it helps remove other forms of cholesterol from your bloodstream.
Triglycerides
Triglycerides are a type of fat (lipid) found in your blood. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn't need to use right away into triglycerides, which are stored in your fat cells. Later, hormones release triglycerides for energy between meals. A high triglyceride level combined with high LDL (bad) cholesterol or low HDL (good) cholesterol is associated with atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty deposits in artery walls, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein)
LDL, or Low-Density Lipoprotein, is commonly known as "bad" cholesterol. It transports cholesterol particles throughout your body. LDL cholesterol is considered “bad” because high levels can lead to the buildup of plaque in your arteries, which increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. This plaque buildup can narrow the arteries and make them less flexible, a condition known as atherosclerosis.
HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein)
HDL, or High-Density Lipoprotein, is known as "good" cholesterol. It plays a crucial role in heart health by transporting cholesterol from other parts of your body back to your liver, which then removes the cholesterol from your body. High levels of HDL cholesterol can lower your risk for heart disease and stroke, as it helps remove other forms of cholesterol from your bloodstream.
hs-CRP
High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is a blood test that detects lower levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation in the body. Unlike standard CRP tests, hs-CRP can identify minor inflammation levels, making it particularly useful in assessing the risk of cardiovascular diseases, including heart attacks and strokes. Elevated hs-CRP levels might indicate an increased risk of heart disease, even in the absence of other risk factors. Therefore, it's often used alongside other cardiac risk assessments to provide a more comprehensive picture of an individual's heart health.
TSH
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is produced by the pituitary gland to regulate thyroid function. It signals the thyroid to produce thyroid hormones, which are crucial for metabolism, energy, and growth. TSH levels help diagnose thyroid disorders, indicating whether the thyroid is functioning properly.
Folate (folic acid)
Folate, also known as folic acid, is vital for cell growth and making DNA. It's key for pregnant women to prevent birth defects. Folate is in leafy greens, fruits, beans, and fortified foods. Supplements are common for pregnancy and some health conditions. A lack of folate can lead to tiredness and weak immunity.
Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin essential for red blood cell formation, nervous system health, and energy metabolism. It's unique in containing the metal cobalt and is found naturally in animal products like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy. Vegetarians and vegans may need fortified foods or supplements, as B12 is scarce in plant-based diets.
Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant important for protecting cells from damage, supporting immune function, and maintaining skin and blood vessel health. It's found in foods like vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, and green leafy vegetables. While deficiency is rare, it can lead to neurological issues.
Coenzyme Q10
Q10, or CoQ10, is a crucial compound for energy production in every human cell and also acts as an antioxidant to protect cells from damage. It's vital for maintaining overall health and cellular function.
Ferritin
Ferritin is a protein that stores iron in the body, reflecting the total iron reserve. It's essential for understanding iron status, as it's more stable and less influenced by dietary changes than iron levels alone. Low ferritin can indicate iron deficiency, while high levels might suggest iron overload or inflammation.
Selenium
Selenium is important for thyroid function, a healthy immune system, and protecting cells from damage. It helps in fighting off infections and supports thyroid health. Selenium is in Brazil nuts, fish, poultry, and whole grains. A good balance of selenium is key for preventing cell damage and boosting immunity. Not getting enough can affect thyroid function and immune response.
Copper
Copper is important for iron absorption, nerve function, and making red blood cells. It helps keep blood vessels and the immune system healthy. Copper is in nuts, seeds, whole grains, and shellfish. Some people might need more copper, especially if they have certain medical conditions. A lack of copper can lead to fatigue and weak immunity. It's key for heart health and maintaining strong bones.
GOT
GOT, or Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase, is an enzyme found in various tissues of the body, with the highest concentrations in the liver. It plays a crucial role in the metabolism of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, and is involved in the transport of amino acids across cell membranes. GOT is commonly measured in blood tests and is used as a marker of liver and biliary tract function.
Amylase
Amylase is an enzyme that plays a crucial role in digestion. It is produced by the pancreas and salivary glands. Amylase's primary function is to break down complex carbohydrates, such as starches and glycogen, into simpler sugars like maltose and glucose, which can be easily absorbed by the body.
