welcome to HealthcareMagic
The routine blood investigations you can do as 42 yrs are:-
CBC-to find out if you have anaemia.
BLOOD SUGAR Fasting & post lunch-to know if you have diabetes.
Lipid profile -to check levels of cholesterol & triglycerides.
BUN & serum creatinine-to find out the kidney functions.
These are regular investigations done for a preventive health check up.
