    Sputum ZN-Stain

    Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the cause of tuberculosis) can be identified using a staining technique called the Zhiel-Nielsen stain. This test makes it possible to visualise the organism in the microscope by staining it basing on the properties of its cell wall. the Z-N Stain can also detect the presence of other organisms like parasites that cause diarrhoea in immune supressed patients ( Cryptosporidium, Ispospora and others) by staining stools other than sputum.

    Laboratory test performed on a sample of your sputum to help diagnose if you have TB. A culture is another kind of test that may be done to detect the presence of TB bacteria.

    No specific patient preparation protocol required.

    URIC ACID

    Uric acid is produced by the breakdown of purines. Purines are nitrogen-containing compounds found in the cells of the body, including our DNA. If too much uric acid is produced or not enough is removed, it can accumulate in the body, causing increased levels in the blood (hyperuricemia).

     

    The uric acid test is used to measure levels of uric acid in your blood in order to help diagnose gout. It’s also used to monitor uric acid in people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer This blood test is used to check for gout and also monitor people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer

If too much uric acid is produced or not enough is removed, it can accumulate in the body, causing increased levels in the blood (hyperuricemia). The presence of excess uric acid can cause gout, a condition characterized by inflammation of the joints due to the formation of uric acid crystals in the joint (synovial) fluid. Excess uric acid can also be deposited in tissues such as the kidney, leading to kidney stones or kidney failure.

    For a stool analysis, a stool sample is collected in a clean container and then sent to the laboratory. Laboratory analysis includes microscopic examination, chemical tests, and microbiologic tests. The stool will be checked for color, consistency, amount, shape, odor, and the presence of mucus. The stool may be examined for hidden (occult) blood, fat, meat fibers, bile, white blood cells, and sugars called reducing substances. The pH of the stool also may be measured. A stool culture is done to find out if bacteria may be causing an infection.

    SERUM LIPASE

    Lipase is produced by the pancreas in the body. It is a protein-based enzyme which plays a role in the digestion and breakdown of fats in the stomach.

     

    A lipase test measures the level of a protein called lipase in your blood. A doctor will order a lipase test if she suspects that you may have acute pancreatitis (an inflammation of the pancreas that causes abdominal pain) This blood test measures the level of lipase to check for acute pancreatitis

    Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing this test. Fasting of 8 hours is usually recommended before this test.

    Lipase is produced by the pancreas in the body. It is a protein-based enzyme which plays a role in the digestion and breakdown of fats in the stomach. Impaired function of the pancreas due to injury or infections or diseases may lead to increased or decreased release of lipase from the pancreas. Lipase levels can be used to diagnose any disease/condition which may be affecting the function of pancreas.

    SERUM AMYLASE

    Amylase is an enzyme and a special protein which is useful in digestion. It is produced primarily by the pancreas and the salivary glands to help digest carbohydrates.
    The pancreas is an organ present behind your stomach. When pancreas function is impaired or if there is an inflammation of pancreas too much or too little of amylase is released into your blood. Thus amylase blood test may detect any problems related to the pancreas.

    RHEUMATOID FACTOR

    Rheumatoid factor (RF) is an autoantibody, an immunoglobulin M (IgM) protein that is produced by the body’s immune system. Autoantibodies attack a person’s own tissues, mistakenly identifying the tissue as “foreign.”

     

    A rheumatoid factor test is one of a group of blood tests primarily used to help pinpoint a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. High levels of rheumatoid factor in the blood are most often associated with autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren’s syndrome.

After the meal, the patient should not take any food before having the test. Take rest for two hours during the waiting period and do not work or strain yourself because exercise may sometimes increase the blood sugar levels. If you are pregnant then there is no need to fast.
