Pathological Investigation Package

The Ayurveda Clinic at Goa India has designed Pathological Investigation Packages. These Packages are a set of Investigations to determine any underlying disease pathogenesis, so as to prevent disease and promote general well-being. Today mankind is prone to factors responsible for causing illness. These factors remain silent, until the body's defence mechanism is strong and upon downfall suddenly illness strikes. Undergoing investigation on routine basis helps to understand the physical state of health and take corrective steps in food and life-style to combat disease.

After having a preliminary consultation and examination with the Ayurvedic Physician, the physician will suggest you on the best Investigation package for individual person.

The Investigation package include Blood and Urine test and also include X- ray, USG and more.

Check information on the test and what the test mean and what is means in terms of health and ill health. Understand all about your physical health condition and educate yourself in being Healthy at Body.

The team of Ayurveda Physician at the Goa Ayurveda Clinic will help you to attain Health.


PATHOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION:

a) CBC - Complete Blood Count

A complete blood count (CBC) is a blood test used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia.

A complete blood count test measures several components and features of your blood, including:

  • Red blood cells, which carry oxygen
  • White blood cells, which fight infection
  • Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells
  • Hematocrit, the proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component, or plasma, in your blood
  • Platelets, which help with blood clotting
  • Abnormal increases or decreases in cell counts as revealed in a complete blood count may indicate that you have an underlying medical condition that calls for further evaluation.

    A complete blood count is a common blood test that's done for a variety of reasons:

  • To assess your overall health. Your doctor may recommend a complete blood count as part of a routine medical examination to monitor your general health and to screen for a variety of disorders, such as anemia or leukemia.
  • To diagnose a medical condition. Your doctor may suggest a complete blood count if you're experiencing weakness, fatigue, fever, inflammation, bruising or bleeding. A complete blood count may help diagnose the cause of these signs and symptoms. If your doctor suspects you have an infection, the test can also help confirm that diagnosis.
  • To monitor a medical condition. If you've been diagnosed with a blood disorder that affects blood cell counts, such as thalassemia or polycythemia vera, your doctor may use complete blood counts to monitor your condition.
  • To monitor medical treatment. A complete blood count may be used to monitor your health if you're taking medications that may affect blood cell counts.

Contents in CBC

  • White cells
  • Red cells
  • Hemoglobin
  • Hematocrit
  • MCV
  • MCH
  • MCHC
  • RDW
  • Platelets

The correlation in Ayurveda here is that usually in pitta prakruti people the WBC are usually increased as he is more prone to infection and inflammation which is the natural tendency of the pitta which in turn will increase the white blood cell count indicative of infection. The investigation reports help us as tools in better treatment as we do not fully depend on the reports which supports. In modern aspect the usual treatment for hb, platelet deficiency is supposed to be suppliments or blood transfusion. But in Ayurveda we have different line of treatment and various medications based on the deficiency according to the prakruti of the person, disease, etc.


b) CT and BT - Clotting Time and Bleeding Time

CT [clotting time] and BT[ bleeding time]
In order for blood to clot, the blood plasma has a factor called as prothrombin which generates an enzyme called as thrombin which converts soluble fibrinogen into insoluble fibrin. Generation of thrombin involves the sequential activation of a number of other plasma clotting factor, this process is also being assisted by Ca++ and by factors released by platelets and damaged tissues. The time taken for blood to clot mainly reflects the time required for the generation of thrombin in this manner. If the plasma concentration of prothrombin or of some of the other factors is low (or if the factor is absent, or functionally inactive), clotting time will be prolonged. The expected range for clotting time is 4-10 mins.

This test measures the time taken for blood vessel constriction and platelet plug formation to occur. No clot is allowed to form, so that the arrest of bleeding depends exclusively on blood vessel constriction and platelet action.

The CT/BT helps in the raktamokshana[ it means letting out the impure blood from the body or the wounded site or for therapeutic aspect ] like leech theraphy or siravedha as well as to know if the blood needs to be purified.


c) BSL - Blood Sugar Level

The diet we consume in our day today life has sugar content in it in the form of glucose. The blood is supposed to have specific amount of sugar level at specific time based on fasting and after food and if it increases then it is called as diabetes .the normal sugar level in fasting is 80mg- 100mg. The sugar level in the blood is regulated or maintained by the hormone called as insulin which is released by the organ pancreas.

Normally, your blood glucose levels increase slightly after you eat. This increase causes your pancreas to release insulin so that your blood glucose levels do not get too high. Blood glucose levels that remain high over time can damage your eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels.

There are several different types of blood glucose tests.

  • Fasting blood sugar (FBS) measures blood glucose after you have not eaten for at least 8 hours. It is often the first test done to check for prediabetes and diabetes.
  • 2-hour postprandial blood sugar measures blood glucose exactly 2 hours after you start eating a meal. This is not a test used to diagnose diabetes.
  • Random blood sugar (RBS) measures blood glucose regardless of when you last ate. Several random measurements may be taken throughout the day. Random testing is useful because glucose levels in healthy people do not vary widely throughout the day. Blood glucose levels that vary widely may mean a problem. This test is also called a casual blood glucose test. Random testing is not used to diagnose diabetes.
  • Oral glucose tolerance test is used to diagnose prediabetes and diabetes. An oral glucose tolerance test is a series of blood glucose measurements taken after you drink a sweet liquid that contains glucose. This test is commonly used to diagnose diabetes that occurs during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). This test is not commonly used to diagnose diabetes in a person who is not pregnant.
  • Glycohemoglobin A1c measures how much sugar (glucose) is stuck to red blood cells. This test can be used to diagnose diabetes. It also shows how well your diabetes has been controlled in the last 2 to 3 months and whether your diabetes medicine needs to be changed. The result of your A1c test can be used to estimate your average blood sugar level. This is called your estimated average glucose, or eAG.

To make a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, your doctor will use the American Diabetes Association's criteria.

Why Is It Done

Blood glucose tests are done to:

  • Check for diabetes.
  • Monitor treatment of diabetes.
  • Check for diabetes that occurs during pregnancy (gestational diabetes).

According to modern aspect there are type 1 and 2 DM but acc to Ayurveda there are 20 types of diabetes which have different mode of treatments. In modern aspect the diabetes is being treated with tablets, insulin injections etc and the complications or the side effects caused by diabetes is being treated symptomatically but where as in Ayurveda we concentrate more on the type of diabetes and prakruti and then treat it from the root itself.


d) TC - Total Cholesterol

Directly linked to risk of heart and blood vessel disease.

Goal values:
  • 75-169 mg/dL for those age 20 and younger
  • 100-199 mg/dL for those over age 21

Preparation:
This test may be measured any time of the day without fasting. However, if the test is drawn as part of a total lipid profile, it requires a 12-hour fast (no food or drink, except water). For the most accurate results, wait at least two months after a heart attack, surgery, infection, injury or pregnancy to check cholesterol levels.

Cholesterol is a type of fat, found in your blood. It is produced by your body and also comes from the foods you eat (animal products). Cholesterol is needed by your body to maintain the health of your cells. Too much cholesterol leads to coronary artery disease. Your blood cholesterol level is related to the foods you eat or to genetic conditions (passed down from other generations of family members).

High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) "Good cholesterol"

High levels linked to a reduced risk of heart and blood vessel disease. The higher your HDL level, the better.

Goal value:
  • Greater than 40 mg/dL

Preparation:
This test may be measured any time of the day without fasting. However, if the test is drawn as part of a total lipid profile, it requires a 12-hour fast (no food or drink, except water). For the most accurate results, wait at least two months after a heart attack, surgery, infection, injury or pregnancy to check HDL levels.

HDL is a lipoprotein (a combination of fat and protein) found in the blood. It is called "good" cholesterol because it removes excess cholesterol from the blood and takes it to the liver. A high HDL level is related to lower risk of heart and blood vessel disease.

Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) "Bad cholesterol"

High levels are linked to an increased risk of heart and blood vessel disease, inlcuding coronary artery disease, heart attack and death. Reducing LDL levels is a major treatment target for cholesterol-lowering medications.

Goal values:
  • Less than 70 mg/dL for those with heart or blood vessel disease and for other patients at very high risk of heart disease (those with metabolic syndrome)
  • Less than 100 mg/dL for high risk patients (e.g., some patients who have multiple heart disease risk factors)
  • Less than 130 mg/dL for individuals who are at low risk for coronary artery disease

Preparation:
Blood should be collected after a 12-hour fast (no food or drink, except water). For the most accurate results, wait at least 2 months after a heart attack, surgery, infection, injury or pregnancy to check LDL levels.

LDL is a lipoprotein (a combination of fat and protein) found in the blood. It is called "bad" cholesterol because it picks up cholesterol from the blood and takes it to the cells. A high LDL level is related to a higher risk of heart and blood vessel disease.


e) TG - Tri-Glycerides

Elevated in obese or diabetic patients. Level increases from eating simple sugars or drinking alcohol. Associated with heart and blood vessel disease.

Goal value:
  • Less than 150 mg/dl

Preparation:
Blood should be collected after a 12-hour fast (no food or drink, except water). For the most accurate results, wait at least 2 months after a heart attack, surgery, infection, injury or pregnancy to check triglyceride levels.

Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood. The blood level of this type of fat is most affected by the foods you eat (such as sugar, fat or alcohol) but can also be high due to being overweight, having thyroid or liver disease and genetic conditions. High levels of triglycerides are related to a higher risk of heart and blood vessel disease.

Triglycerides and cholesterol not necessarily means related only with the obese people but more with the vessels of the person, even a thin person can have the above levels raised. This all is related to his prakruti of the body and the diet he is consuming and the place he is born and residing Ayurveda has specific criteria and mode of medication used for the specific people.


f) LFT - Liver Function Test

Liver enzyme tests, formerly called liver function tests (LFTs), are a group of blood tests that detect inflammation and damage to the liver. They can also check how well the liver is working. Liver enzyme testing includes ALT, AST, alkaline phosphatase; true liver function tests (LFTs) include PT, INR, albumin, and bilirubin.

According to Ayurveda this test will help to give medication to all the types of liver disorders, again in Ayurveda the concept is more prakruti oriented for both the patient and disease. The usual blood test which checks that the kidneys are working properly measures the level of urea, creatinine, and certain dissolved salts. In kidney v have again innumerable disorders acc to Ayurveda in which the tests will act as helping hand.

The above said test levels will help in better diagnosis of the disease in Ayurveda as many of the disease in modern aspect are clubbed into one category because of the raised levels of the above said tests but where as in Ayurveda this will be a substantial proof in definite diagnosing the disease accurately and thus by ensuring the proper authentic treatment.

Apart from these there are other tests which will be helping us in giving better service and help to people by enhancing their life in a better way and proving protecting the health of the healthy and destroying the disease from the diseased.
