Thanks for utilizing this forum for your father's health.
The tests required include:
- complete blood counts
- Fasting BG
- Post meal BG
- Hb A1c (HPLC method)
- Renal function tests e.g. Blood Urea, Serum Creatinine, e- GFR (Estimated
Glomerular Filtration Rate)
- Lipid profile
- 2D Echocardiogram
- X-ray Chest (Digital)-PA projection
I feel this list be regarded as baseline tests. Some more tests might be required after we detect any abnormality in any test.
Wishing you and your father good health
Yours Sincerely
Dr. LK Shankhdhar
