Fluids in the body are examined using clinical biochemical testing (blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid, and collections in joints, abscesses, and body cavities). They can be utilized for tracking the development of illness management in addition to making a diagnosis.

In the biochemistry lab, measurements of lipids (fats) and blood glucose (sugar) are among the procedures that are frequently carried out. Major organs including the heart, liver, and kidneys can all be evaluated using a panel of tests. The concentrations of different hormones in the blood are measured using specialized assays.

  • Liver function test
  • Cardiac markers to test for heart damage
  • Diabetic test (Glucose, HbA1c and urine Albumin / Creatinine ratio)
  • Nutritional atatus (Iron studies, Vit B12)
  • Renal, electrolytes and bone studies
  • Lipogram studies or cardiac risk studies
  • Inflammation studies
  • Blood mineral status
  • Urine chemistry – dipstick
