About Test:

The obesity profile is a group of tests that is used to look at the cause of obesity, and try to rule out serious causes such as risk for cardiovascular issues and Cushing’s disease. This group of tests help clinicians to pinpoint the cause of a drastic weight gain.

Medical condition:

Sudden or drastic weight gain

Test preparation:

For this panel, 10-12 hours of fasting prior to the test is needed.

Components Included:

Thyroid Profile:
This panel of tests is used to test the functioning of the thyroid gland. The levels of thyroid hormones such as T3, T3 are measured in their bound and unbound forms in order to see whether they are present in normal amounts. Using this profile, hyper or hypothyroidism can be detected effectively.


Estimation of Cortisol (8am and 4pm):
This 8 hour test is used to measure urine levels of cortisol, which controls blood sugar, regulates metabolism, reduces inflammation and assists with memory formulation. Highest levels are seen in the morning, and measurements after 4pm tend to be unreliable. Low levels of cortisol below normal may indicate hypothalamic disease or cortisol deficiency.


Estimation of blood sugar (Fasting & Post prandial) : 
These blood tests measure glucose in the blood, which comes from carbohydrates. Glucose gives us energy and is regulated by insulin in the blood. Low levels indicate hypoglycemia, and very high glucose levels may indicate diabetes


Lipid profile: 
This group of blood tests measures the levels different kinds of lipids in the blood, such as Low density lipoprotein, high density lipoprotein, very low density lipoprotein, triglycerides. It is useful to indicate risk for heart problems, and can identify certain genetic issues as well


Creatinine:  
This blood test measures levels of Creatinine, which is a waste product from the muscles, filtered out by kidneys. High creatinine levels may indicate high risk for stones, and also chance of kidney failure and other renal issues


Uric acid:
This test measures levels of blood uric acid, which is a waste product often produced from foods like red meat, and released in urine. Uric acid levels in case of gout may be quite high. High levels may also indicate a risk for impairment of kidney functioning (kidney failure). 


Phosphorous:
This test helps measure blood phosphorous levels. Phosphorous aids in formation of new bones, muscle and nerve function, and helps maintain acid-base balance. Levels are seen to be higher in chronic kidney disease, and in hormonal and gastrointestinal issues


Estimation of serum electrolytes: 
This blood test measures sodium, potassium and chloride levels. Electrolytes have electric charge and help in maintaining balance within the body, in muscle function, and in acid-base balance. Abnormal kidney functioning may cause electrolyte imbalances.
