Comprehensive blood test

Morphology results show whether the body is functioning properly. If they differ from the norm, the doctor makes further diagnoses.
Basic urine test
A urine test can detect urinary tract infections, diabetes, and kidney disease. The results also show abnormalities in the amount of fluid consumed. In addition to a general examination, you can also do a urine culture (test for protein, glucose or albumin in the urine).
blood sugar level
High blood sugar increases the risk of developing diabetes and damaging many organs (including the kidneys and blood vessels). High blood glucose levels may also indicate pituitary and adrenal gland disorders as well as pancreatic disease.
Testing is worth taking, especially if we notice bothersome respiratory symptoms. ECG results allow early detection of coronary artery disease.
Thyroid hormone level
The thyroid gland secretes hormones, supports the heart, and regulates metabolism. In addition, it affects the state of our nervous system. Disorders in the functioning of the thyroid gland can cause many diseases, including: Hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism and autoimmune disease – Hashimoto’s disease or Graves’ disease. Symptoms that indicate a thyroid problem include weight gain or loss for no apparent reason, as well as chronic fatigue and difficulty concentrating.
