The CheckUp for Children 3 -12 years old is based on the most important tests from the package of analyzes of the general Checkup, with:
|Test / Analyte||Description / Detects - Measures|
|Complete Blood Count||Measures Hematocrit, Red -White Blood Cells - Platelets and Morphology.
Detects Anaemias, Infections, Bone marrow disorders.
|Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate||Chronic Inflammations - infections|
|CRP-hs||Accute Inflammations - infections.|
|Total Cholesterol - Triglycerides||Assessment in Metabolism &
Cholesterol Dietary intake
|Liver enzymes ALT & AST||Liver function test|
However, we also choose due to the particularities of childhood (possible allergies – tonsillitis, nutritional adequacy – weight disorders, development – concentration issues) :
Immunoglobulins E (IgE)
They are the main indicator for all types of allergic reactions which, according to the bibliography, affect approximately 30% of children. The unnecessary activation of the immune system by allergic reactions creates an environment for the perpetuation of allergies even at older ages, exhausts the body, and creates more general sensitivities. With the proper information, a possible allergic shock can be avoided (e.g. from an insect bite, antibiotic, food, seasonal allergen, etc.).
It is a laboratory test to detect a possible infection of the tonsils by streptococcus. The infection is very common among children, and at an exacerbation, requires immediate treatment to avoid possible serious side effects (e.g. heart attack).
Ferrum (Fe) and Ferritin (Ferr).
The medical tests are done in combination to assess the adequacy of dietary Ferrum in children.
The increased consumption of dairy products often creates problems in the absorption of Ferrum. A possible lack of Ferrum, in addition to anemia with symptoms of fatigue, can change the children's behavior, and even can cause learning difficulties.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
We proactively check the correct regulation of the thyroid gland, which is responsible for the body's metabolic rate. A potentially prolonged thyroid dysfunction in children can be expressed in obesity, lack of concentration, learning difficulties, and behavioral or developmental problems. Check Up are even more valuable in children, whose parents suffer from thyroid disorders.
Vitamin D3 (25-OH-D3)
Vitamin D3 is responsible for the absorption of calcium in the bones and the regulation of the immune system. In surveys, the lack of this vitamin has been ascertained in a percentage of even 80% of the examinees. The deficiency in children can create rickets – developmental problems in the skeleton.
