Determination of blood glucose concentration is important in diagnosing diabetes. The most important symptom of diabetes is an increase in the concentration of glucose in the blood, called hyperglycemia. The concentration of glucose in the blood increases not only with diabetes, but also with Cushing's syndrome, acromegaly or obesity.
Sodium (Na) is the most important extracellular electrolyte (cation) that regulates water metabolism. A quarter of the sodium in the body is included in the composition of the tissues, the other part is in the extracellular fluid and is constantly changing. Sodium is important: maintaining osmotic pressure, acid-alkaline balance (increasing sodium and decreasing potassium, the reaction of the medium turns to alkaline); for muscle contraction.
Both a marked increase in the concentration of potassium in the blood serum and a decrease can be life-threatening: in the case of hyperkalemia, the heart can stop in diastole, and in the case of hypokalemia - in systole. The potassium test is very important to assess the electrolyte balance. Potassium testing should be done regularly by those taking insulin, those with cardiovascular disease, and those with kidney failure.
(AST) activity increases later and normalizes later than ALT. Increased AST activity indicates severe damage to hepatocytes. When the disease becomes chronic, AST activity persists for a particularly long time.
(ALT) is one of the most sensitive enzymes that indicate liver damage. It helps in the early diagnosis of hepatitis, latent and asymptomatic forms of the disease.
(ALP) — when an obstruction occurs in the liver that prevents bile from flowing into the digestive tract, bile begins to flow in the opposite direction and enters the blood through the other side of the hepatocyte (liver cell) membrane. Together with the bile, excretory enzymes enter the blood, which must normally enter the digestive tract. The main excretory enzymes are alkaline phosphatase (AL), γ glutamyltransferase (GGT).
Cholesterol is one of the main components of blood plasma lipoproteins, a fat-soluble steroid alcohol found in fats of animal origin. This substance is very important for the body's vital functions, but its increased concentration is associated with cardiovascular diseases.
TTH, TSH — the main hormone for evaluating thyroid function and damage. It is necessary for further monitoring of the patient after surgical removal of the thyroid gland and during treatment with L-thyroxine preparations.
The concentration of urea in the blood can increase even in the presence of a slight impairment of kidney function, when kidney blood flow is impaired or its synthesis is intensified. By the way, this happens much earlier and faster than the increase in other nitrogenous substances, such as creatinine.
Creatinine is formed in the muscles from the macroergic compound creatine phosphate (CF), so more creatinine is released in individuals with well-developed, strong muscles. The concentration of creatinine in the blood increases with impaired kidney function.
Although both urea and creatinine levels indicate the condition of the kidneys, the interpretation of these indicators differs, so it is recommended to test both of these substances to assess kidney function. In the presence of minor functional changes in the kidneys, the concentration of urea in the blood begins to increase, while the concentration of creatinine remains normal for a long time. Its concentration increases only when the functional reserves of the kidneys are exhausted, the activity of most of the nephrons is impaired. In kidney disease, creatinine concentration is usually high — it is an informative indicator of kidney failure.
