biochemical test

Biochemical test is carried out with the aim of detecting organ dysfunctions and determining specific substances in the blood, whether organic or inorganic that indicate the existence of certain diseases. In other words, through this measurement, the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus and arteriosclerosis is facilitated, while at the same time the function of the kidneys and liver is checked.

The term biochemical derives from the biochemical methods used to determine the following substances:

  • Sugar
  • Urea
  • Creatine
  • Cholesterol
  • Triglycerides
  • Albumins or proteins
  • Transaminases
  • Alkaline phosphatase
  • C – Glutamate transferase
  • Bilirubin
  • Lactate dehydrogenase
  • Creatine kinase
  • Total cholesterol
  • Total lipids
  • Total lipids
  • Amylase
  • Lipase
  • A variety of ions such as iron, calcium, potassium and sodium

Biochemical test can therefore detect malfunctions of the body’s organs and metabolic disorders, which can be treated, either by changing the diet or by medication. For this reason, the biochemical check-up should not be skipped and should be carried out following the recommendation of the appropriate doctor.
