5 Important Medical Tests for Your Parents

Old age invites a series of medical complications that can severely compromise the wellbeing of your parents, unless managed effectively. And the most important step in ensuring their wellbeing is routine medical tests to keep health hazards at bay.

Here are 5 important medical tests for your parents:

1. Lipid Profile Test:

Most women are at the risk of developing high levels of LDL or bad cholesterol during their menopause phase as their estrogen levels drops significantly. A lipid profile helps assess your mother’s cholesterol levels to prevent cardiac problems. Among men, the chances of developing high cholesterol is more during the younger years. However, older men pose serious risk due to unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle.

2. HbA1C:

This test is mandatory at least once in every 3 months, if your parents are diabetic. Otherwise, this test can be undertaken once every year to gauge the risks of diabetes. It helps to analyze whether the current lifestyle and remedial measures or medication is effective in controlling the sugar levels or not. Ignoring the test may lead to high sugar levels without one even realizing it. Uncontrolled diabetes can be life threatening as it can lead to loss of vision, kidney failure, and gangrene.

3. Kidney Function Test (KFT):

Kidney Function Test is performed in patients with family history of renal diseases or has hypertension and diabetes, making them highly susceptible to kidney diseases. It comprises of blood and urine tests, wherein the sample is collected from the patient in overnight fasting state. Serum Urea and Serum Creatinine are primary indicators of kidney functioning and other specific parameters are studied from the urine report.

4. Liver Function Test (LFT):

With age comes the normal wear and tear of vital organs including the liver. The blood circulation in the liver may decrease and its ability to filter out chemicals and toxins also start to dwindle. Thus, in order to detect any signs of liver failure or cirrhosis as early as possible, getting an LFT done periodically is necessary, especially if your parents consume a lot of life saving drugs or supplements.

5. Vitamin D Total Test:

Did you know that deficiency of Vitamin D can worsen the conditions of diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis and dementia (memory loss + inability to think logically)? The only way to confirm the deficiency is to take the Vitamin D total test, on a regular basis so that remedial measures can be adjusted accordingly to reclaim normalcy.
