Lab Tests Available in North Charleroi:
Basic Health Screening
There are two very common tests that are done when the Basic Health Screening is performed. These tests will lead to further recommendations of more lab work to be completed. The two most common tests are the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel and the Complete Blood Count tests. These two tests let a patient know if their blood, kidney, or liver levels are too high.
The Essential Health Screen $89 - CBC (w diff), CMP, Urinalysis and Lipid Profile (HDL, LDL + Triglycerides)
Basic Health Screen $59 - Includes a CBC (w diff), CMP, and a Urinalysis
Cholesterol Test (Lipid Profile) $39 - HDL, LDL, Total Cholesterol + Triglycerides
Cholesterol and Cardio
A surprising statistic is that 785,000 men and women will suffer their first heart attack this year. Changing a lifestyle will be very difficult to do at first but it will become easier as the lifestyle is continued. The changes to help reduce the heart disease are eating a healthy lifestyle and doing regular cardio exercise. Being tested regularly will also help to detect what kind of testing needs to be done.
The Health Testing Center will do a Prostate Specific Antigen blood test or PSA for 50 dollars. This test could be a life saver by letting the patient knows if there are any cancerous or noncancerous disorders in the prostate glands. The prostate glands should be tested annually after the age of 50; if the male is at high risk this test should be performed annually after the age of 40.
Getting the Thyroid Function Test or a Thyroid Profile test done helps many people know if they have thyroid problems. The TSH is a stimulating hormone that is regulated by the thyroid. When this hormone is having a dysfunction the symptoms show. They may not be something that will let a patient know right away something is wrong. Spend the 100 dollars and get the test done so that the treatment can be prepared.
Liver screenings can be ordered to diagnose viral infections also. These tests will help test the liver for the amount of damage that has been done. The liver is a very important organ in the body. The liver makes proteins, stores energy, and also removes toxins from the body. The liver also plays an important role in the production of bile. The Liver Function Test helps the patient know if their liver is still working properly.
There are many different types of tumor markers to help search for a particular cancer. These markers are seen in the blood cells. When the cancer cell is found and examined there can then be a diagnosis. Factors that cause cancer can be radiation, chemical agents, smoking, and the most important hereditary causes. There are numerous Cancer Screenings that will find them and tell the patient. That way the patient will know the proper treatment to ensure a happy and save remission. These tests are offered by Health Testing Centers; CEA or Carcinoembryonic Antigen, Cancer Antigen 19-9 or CA 19-9, Cancer Antigen 27.29 or CA 27.29, Cancer Antigen 125 or CA-125, and AFP or Alpha-Fetoprotein.
There has been a new treatment when it comes to aging. Many people think that aging is now a disease. This being said people need to be proactive when it comes to the treatment of aging. A woman needs to get the DHEA, testosterone, Human growth hormone, and IGF-1 tested at the lab. These tests will let a woman know what stage of menopause she is in. Then the right hormone replacement therapy can be given.
