AMYLASE

Test Name

Amylase


Test Description

Amylase is a digestive enzyme produced by the pancreas and salivary glands. Amylase helps in the breakdown of complex carbohydrates into simple sugars which can be easily absorbed into the body’s system. The body is able to produce energy using these simple sugars. This test is used to measure the amylase levels in the bloodstream. High levels of amylase in blood or urine indicate a disorder of the pancreas. Additional tests such as lipase may be prescribed by a doctor to better understand the condition.

BLOOD AMMONIA

Test Name

Blood Ammonia


Test Description

Ammonia is a nitrogen waste compound that is normally excreted in the urine. The blood ammonia test detects the presence and concentration of ammonia in the blood.  Abnormally high levels in the blood are most often caused due to liver disease or kidney failure, leading to the accumulation of ammonia in the bloodstream. It can lead to serious health problems, including brain damage, coma, and even death.

AMH Anti Mullerian Hormone

Test Name

Anti MÜllerian Hormone


Test Description

Anti MÜllerian Hormone is very important during a fertility test that gives information about a woman’s ovarian reserve. Higher levels (ranging 1-4 ng/mL) indicate normal ovarian reserve and lower levels (< 1 ng/mL) signifies low or diminished ovarian reserve. However, a significantly higher level of AMH (> 6 ng/mL) also means that the woman has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It is an extremely sensitive marker of ovarian aging and granulose cell tumors.

AMA or TPO-Ab

Test Name

Anti Microsomal Antibody

An anti microsomal antibody (AMA) test is also called a thyroid peroxidase test (Anti-TPO). Anti TPO antibodies are the most common anti-thyroid antibody. A blood test measures presence and concentration of antithyroid microsomal antibodies secreted in your blood. Positive results may be due to some damage to the thyroid gland. High levels of anti-thyroid antibodies could be found in autoimmune thyroid disorders such as Hashimoto’s disease or Graves’ disease.

ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE

Test Name

Alkaline Phosphatase


Test Description

Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme most commonly found in the liver, bones, kidneys, and digestive system. It is also known as Basic Phosphatase. This test measures the ALP levels in the blood. ALP most commonly leaks into the blood stream in cases of liver damage. High ALP readings are usually recorded in patients with severe liver damage and/or any bone disorder. Doctors tend to advise additional tests such as bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), or alanine transaminase (ALT).
