What is a biochemical test?

A biochemical test is an analysis of body fluids that detects dysfunctions of solid organs and metabolic disorders. Biochemical tests use biochemical methods to identify organic and inorganic compounds, such as cholesterol, triglycerides, and urea.

What does a biochemical profile show?

Biochemical tests can show the lack or excessive increase of a particular biochemical substance in the patient’s blood. As a result, they can indicate diseases or problems in the operation of some organs.

For example, elevated blood sugar levels could indicate the onset of diabetes. Similarly, elevated urea and creatinine levels could suggest kidney problems.

However, it should be highlighted that biochemical testing results are indications to be evaluated by the treating physician.

What type of biochemical tests does an annual check-up include?

Depending on the age and the medical history of the patient, an annual check-up can include the measure of the following biochemical substances:

  • Blood sugar
  • Urea
  • Creatinine
  • Uric acid
  • Total cholesterol
  • Triglycerides
  • HDL cholesterol
  • LDL cholesterol
  • Atherogenic index of plasma
  • SGOT transaminase
  • SGPT transaminase
  • Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
  • Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT)
  • Creatine kinase (CPK)
  • Total bilirubin (TBIL)
  • Iron (Fe)
  • Ferritin
  • Calcium (Ca)
  • Sodium (Na)
  • Potassium (K)
  • Magnesium (Mg)
