Clinical Blochemistry

Fluids in the body are examined using clinical biochemical testing (blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid, and collections in joints, abscesses, and body cavities). They can be used for more than just establishing a diagnosis; they can also be used to track illness management progress. Some of the more prevalent illnesses that require biochemical testing for management and therapy are listed below.

  • Diabetes: Diabetics are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, lipid abnormalities, and kidney failure, so cardiac enzymes (if there has been chest pain or an abnormal ECG), cholesterol and triglyceride measurements that indicate the need for statin medication, and kidney function assessments are all important parts of diabetic management.
  • Immunosuppression: It can be quantified to modify dosages and timing of intravenous anticancer therapy due to doctor-caused immunosuppression, such as chemotherapy.
  • Thyroid Illness TSH is used to screen for thyroid dysfunction, and a normal reading indicates that thyroid function has been stabilised with medication
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): intensity of clinical jaundice is proportional to high bilirubin in the blood and urine, and bilirubin is a precise mirror of liver illness.
  • Kidney Illness Blood tests can be used to track electrolyte balance based on hydration, which is used to guide drug choices for diuresis or kidney function.
