Early Pregnancy Check Up Silver Package

Early Pregnancy Check Up Silver Package

Description:

Pregnancy feels like the best gift for most couples. Special care should be taken during this time to maintain a healthy pregnancy to full term. Your doctor may recommend a variety of screenings, tests and imaging techniques during your pregnancy. These tests are designed to provide information about your overall health, infections that can cause problems with maintaining the pregnancy, infections that can harm the baby, to determine the health and development of the baby. Folic acid is needed for the normal development of your baby. Folate enhances the production of red blood cells in your body. This is vital during pregnancy when anemia due to iron deficiency is a common complaint. It can help prevent major birth defects of the baby’s brain and spine. These birth defects are called neural tube defects or NTDs. It lowers the baby’s risk of cleft lip and palate and also reduces the risk of premature birth, miscarriage and low birth weight problems. Expecting mothers need to take folic acid every day to help in the proper development of the baby. Some doctors even suggest to start using folic acid even before they become pregnant to help prevent NTDs. Adequate intake of folic acid daily is known to prevent preeclampsia, heart stroke, heart disease, cancers and Alzheimer’s disease.

Random Blood Sugar

A blood sugar test measures the amount of sugar in your blood. This test helps diagnosis and manage diabetes.

Urine Routine ( 19 Tests)

A urinalysis is a group of physical, chemical, and microscopic tests. The tests detect and/or measure several substances in the urine, such as byproducts of normal and abnormal metabolism, cells, cellular fragments, and bacteria.

VDRL

The Venereal Disease Research Laboratory test (VDRL) is a blood test for syphilis and related non-venereal treponematoses that was developed by the eponymous lab. The VDRL test is used to screen for syphilis (it has high sensitivity), whereas other, more specific tests are used to diagnose the disease.

Blood Group and Rh Factor

Blood group tests categorize your blood according to the major human blood group (ABO) system. A person's ABO type depends upon the presence or absence of two genes — the A and B genes. These genes determine part of the configuration of the red blood cell surface. Possible ABO blood groups include O, A, B, or AB. Rh testing is performed because the difference in Rh blood group types between an Rh-negative mother and her Rh-positive baby can lead to hemolytic disease (a severe condition in which there is a breakdown of the red blood cells) of the newborn. If an Rh-negative mother carries an Rh-positive fetus, she may develop antibodies against the Rh component of the baby's red blood cells. These antibodies could cause hemolytic disease of an Rh-positive baby in subsequent pregnancies. Prevention of hemolytic disease of the newborn is carried out by giving Rh-negative mothers Rh0 (D) immune globulin (brand name: RhoGAM) after delivery of an Rh-positive baby. This prevents the mother's immune system from reacting to the Rh-positive blood of any subsequent fetus.

Complete Blood Count with ESR

Complete blood count with ESR is conducted as the first test on a patient suspected to have a disease or infection. The results of the ESR test are useful to plan further testing and to commence treatment depending on the condition that is suspected. The treatment of some conditions such as arthritis is monitored using the ESR test.

HbsAg

Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is a blood test ordered to determine if someone is infected with the hepatitis B virus. If it is found, along with specific antibodies, it means the person has a hepatitis B infection. If your blood is positive for HBsAg, it means you are infectious for the virus and can pass it to other people through your blood or body fluids.

HIV 1 & 2 (Rapid HIV Combo)

It is a comprehensive test for the detection of HIV, which are actually three tests, as it includes detection of the three elements of detectable infection, we have explained before: Detection P24 ANTIGEN. Determination of the presence of HIV antibodies. Ultrasensitive Quantitative PCR to quantify the presence of the virus.

Both Hips X-ray

A hip X-ray is a safe and painless test that uses a small amount of radiation to make images of the hip joints (where the legs attach to the pelvis). During the examination, an X-ray machine sends a beam of radiation through the pelvic bones and hip joints, and an image is recorded on a computer or special film.

Consultation with a General Practitioner

A general practitioner is a medical doctor who treats acute and chronic illnesses and provides preventive care and health education to patients.
