Cardiac disorder and hypertension

Comprehensive panel for identifying most common cardio-vascular and thrombotic risk factors so that appropriate interventions and care can be taken

Cardiovascular Disease risk markers(CVD)
Test Code Test name and Information (one sentence only) Clinical Significance of the Test in Clinical Practice Method
MPA011 Apolipoprotein B (APOB) Mutation Analysis Confirm a diagnosis of familial defective Apo B-100 (FDB) . Identify a cause for inherited hypercholesterolemia .Screen individuals with a family history of FDB to assess risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). PCR-Sequencing
MPA012 Apolipoprotein E (APOE) 2 MutationsApolipoprotein E (APOE) 2 Mutations Confirm a diagnosis of type III hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP III) .Identify a cause for HLP III or premature coronary heart disease (CHD) PCR-Sequencing
MPA005 ADRB2 Genotyping To identify haplotypes of the ADRB2 gene that may have clinical implications for asthma severity, cardiovascular function, obesity, and response to beta-agonist PCR-Sequencing
Thrombotic risk panel
Test Code Test name and Information (one sentence only) Clinical Significance of the Test in Clinical Practice Method
MPF001 Factor II: (Prothrombin) mutation G20210A Genotype greater risk for thrombosis. Multiplex PCR
MPF002 Factor V: Leiden G1691A Mutation The factor V Leiden , single base mutation is the most common genetic risk factor for thrombosis and accounts for greater than 90% of cases with APC resistance. Multiplex PCR
MPM007 Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase (MTHFR) 2 Mutations:c.677C>T and c.1286A>C To determine a genetic cause for early-onset arteriosclerotic vascular disease or venous thrombosis, especially in individuals with hyperhomocysteinemia or a significant family history. To determine a genetic cause for early-onset arteriosclerotic vascular disease or venous thrombosis, especially in individuals with hyperhomocysteinemia or a significant family history. Multiplex PCR
Hypertension Profile:Urinalysis,urine protein.Hypertension Profile:Urinalysis,urine protein. Urinalysis, urine protein - to help assess kidney functionUrinalysis, urine protein - to help assess kidney function Biochemistry&microscopy
Urinary albumin (microalbumin), BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and/or creatinine - to detect and monitor kidney dysfunction or to monitor the effect of medications on the kidneysUrinary albumin (microalbumin), BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and/or creatinine - to detect and monitor kidney dysfunction or to monitor the effect of medications on the kidneys
Potassium Potassium - as part of the electrolyte panel, which also includes sodium, chloride, and carbon dioxide (CO2); to evaluate and monitor the balance of the body's electrolytes. Cushing syndrome and Conn syndrome often cause low potassium, which can be a clue to their presence. Some high blood pressure medications can upset the balance by causing excessive loss of potassium or potassium retention. ISE
Fasting glucose Fasting glucose, A1c - to help recognize diabetes and to monitor glucose control over time in diabetic patients Biochemistry
Calcium Calcium - to determine how much total calcium or ionized calcium is circulating in the blood; increased activity of theparathyroid glands, which produces an increase in serum calcium, is associated with hypertension. Biochemistry
TSH,T4 TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and T4 - to detect and monitor thyroid dysfunction CLIA
Lipid profile Lipid profile - to evaluate levels of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and assess the risk of developing atherosclerosis Biochemistry
Cardiac profile:-Lipid profile Lipid profile - to evaluate levels of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and assess the risk of developing atherosclerosis Biochemistry
Fasting blood sugar,HbA1c Fasting glucose, A1c - to help recognize diabetes and to monitor glucose control over time in diabetic patients Biochemistry&HPLC
