Our health screening tests and packages cover a wide and comprehensive list of test profiles. Following is our Test Profile Index.

eGFR (Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate) 估计肾小球过滤率

A calculated estimate of the actual glomerular filtration rate and is based on the serum creatinine concentration, age, sex, and race. The eGFR test is used to screen for and detect early kidney damage and to monitor kidney status. This test may not be accurate for those younger than 18, pregnant, overweight or very muscular person.

Electrolytes (Sodium, Potossium, Chloride) 电解质 (钠,钾,氯)

Blood levels of the electrolytes depend on the balance between intake and production. Abnormal values are usually seen in patients with kidney disorders. Medication for hypertension and heart diseases can affect the electrolyte levels.

Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) 红血球沉淀率

Blood is made up of cellular component and the liquid component called plasma. If blood is left to stand, the cellular component will sediment and the amount it settles in 1 hour is the ESR. Many factors can influence the ESR. In general, the higher the ESR, the higher the chances of a chronic disease. Investigations are then needed to find the disease.

GGT (Gamma Glutamyl transpeptidase) 麸氨酸转移酶

The GGT test helps to detect liver and bile duct injury. GGT can also be used to screen for chronic alcohol abuse (it is likely to be high in 75% of chronic drinkers). Elevated levels may be due to liver disease, but they may also be due to congestive heart failure, alcohol, prescription drugs, anti fungal agents, and hormone such as testosterone. Even a small amount of alcohol within 24 hours of your GGT test may cause a temporary increase in GGT. Smoking can also increase GGT.

Glucose (Blood) 葡萄糖(血)

Glucose levels above the normal range indicate the presence of diabetes mellitus. An additional test called the Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) is needed to confirm the diagnosis and to access the severity.

Glucose (Urine) 葡萄糖 (尿)

Glucose in the urine is commonly seen in patients with diabetes mellitus and the benign condition called renal glycosuria.

Haemoglobin, RBC and PCV 红血素, 红血球及红血球容积量

Haemoglobin, the red pigment in the red blood cells is essential for the transport of oxygen to the tissue. If the level is below the normal range, the person is anaemic, looks pale and tires easily. Severe anaemia can lead to heart failure. Anaemia can be due to a) decresed production of normal red blood cells b) lack of essential nutrients like iron c) hereditary disorders like thalassemia. Additional tests may be needed to confirm this.

HAVIgG (Hepatitis A IgG Antibody) A型肝炎抗体

Hepatitis A is acquired by taking food or drinks which are contaminated with faecal matter from an infected person. The majority of patient will recover. Those who have recovered will be positive for HAVIgG and will be protected for future infections with hepatitis A. Hepatitis A can now be prevented through immunization. The vaccine is given in 2 doses 6 month apart.

HbA1c 糖化血色素

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is a minor component of hemoglobin to which glucose is bound. Levels of HbA1c are not influenced by daily fluctuations in the blood glucose concentration but reflect the average glucose levels over the prior six to eight weeks. HbA1c may be used to monitor the effects of diet, exercise, and drug therapy on blood glucose in people with diabetes.

HDL Cholesterol 高脂胆固醇

This is the good cholesterol as it helps to remove cholesterol from the cells and transport it to the liver for excretion. High levels of HDL are associated with low risk of atherosclerosis and are seen in women before menopause, persons who exercise regularly and non-smokers.
