 4. Implication Of DIAG WELLNESS – Diamond Parameters

Evaluate organ functions and the processes of the body’s metabolism through parameters such as:

– Uric Acid*: Monitor uric acid concentration in blood and support in the diagnosis of gout.

– Albumin: Measure albumin concentration in blood to evaluate health conditions related to liver and gallbladder diseases.

– Alkaline Phosphatase: Evaluate some diseases related to the liver and bones.

– Anti HCV (hepatitis C): Measure antigens produced by the immune system in order to avoid HCVcAg of Hepatitis C virus.

– ALAT (SGPT*):  Evaluate liver function and high SGPT concentration in blood when the liver has problems.

– ASAT (SGOT)*: Used to evaluate liver function and high SGOT concentration in blood when the liver has problems.

– Bilirubin total (direct + indirect): Includes bilirubin total, bilirubin direct, and bilirubin indirect, which can evaluate gallbladder function, support in the diagnosis of some diseases related to the liver and gallbladder such as Gilbert syndrome, hepatitis, cirrhosis, and cholecystitis.

– Calcium: Measure the total amount of calcium in your body, which is almost entirely stored in bone and teeth.

– Complete Blood Count (CBC): Evaluate each of the components in blood such as white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Evaluate general health conditions as part of the basic health check package.

Creatinine*, Urea*: Evaluate kidney function.

Electrolytes (Na+ K+ Cl-): Assess the level of electrolytes in the blood.

– Ferritin: Examine the amount of iron in normal, which can screen, diagnose and monitor liver function.

– Gamma GT*: Evaluate liver function and high GGT concentration in blood when the liver has problems.

– Glucose (fasting): Examine, screen, diagnose, and monitor glucose concentration of hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose) or hyperglycaemia (high blood glucose).

– HbA1c:  Measure the average glucose attached to hemoglobin in blood during 120 days for screening, meanwhile monitor the effectiveness of treatments on diabetic patients.

– Homocysteine (cardiology): Determine vitamin B6, B12, and folate deficiency, which can cause heart attacks and strokes, while also monitoring those who have heart disease and sometimes diagnose a rare inherited disorder homocystinuria in newborns.

HBsAg (Hepatitis B): Used to screen and diagnose hepatitis B, while also used to assess the effectiveness of treatments on hepatitis B patients when combined with other parameters.

– HBsAb (Hepatitis B): Evaluate the amount of hepatitis B virus surface and the body’s immune response status after hepatitis B vaccination.

– Hs CRP (high sensitive C Reactive Protein): Diagnose the body’s infection status.

– Iron (Fe): Measure the total amount of iron that is attached to transferrin in blood to evaluate anemia or excess iron.

– Lipids (LDL + HDL + Cholesterol + Triglycerides):

  • Triglycerides: Used to monitor blood fat concentration and help to evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Cholesterol total: Monitor the total cholesterol concentration in blood, so that it can evaluate the risk of atherosclerotic disease.
  • HDL-cholesterol: Measure the profitable cholesterol as concentration increases can reduce the risk of atherosclerotic disease.
  • LDL-cholesterol: Measure the harmful cholesterol as high concentration can increase the risk of atherosclerotic disease.

– Phosphorus: Evaluate the phosphate concentration in blood and diagnose any abnormal status in the body which may cause the level of phosphate in the blood to change.

– Protein: Measure the protein total in blood to evaluate the body’s nutrition related to liver and gallbladder diseases.

TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)*: Produced by the pituitary gland to stimulate the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4 hormones.

– Urinalysis (Urine Chemistry): Examine general health condition by analyzing 10 parameters in urine to find any potential cause of disease.

 Vitamin B12: Evaluate vitamin B12 concentration in blood.

– Vitamin D total: Measure total vitamin D to assess the quantity of vitamin D in your body and support in diagnosing osteoporosis in the elderly or rickets in children.

– Electrocardiogram (ECG): Monitor the processes and speed of the heart.

– Ultrasound (Thyroid, Abdominal, Heart) – Male: Provide images of male abdominal organs, thyroid, and heart to find out related diseases.

– Ultrasound (Thyroid, Abdominal, Breast, Heart) – Female: Provide images of female abdominal organs, breast, thyroid, and heart to find any related diseases.

– X-ray (Lung): Using an X-ray with a portable X-ray tube to record the images of the heart, lung, respiratory, vein, and lymph system.
