Diagnostic Profile

  • Cholesterol and blood fats
    Fasting is required from 12-14 hours, in order to complete the absorption of fats into the blood and stabilize their percentage.
  • fasting sugar
    It is required to fast from 6-8 hours, in order to complete the combustion of sugar and take the ratio while the patient is fasting.
  • sugar after eating
    The sample must be taken two hours after the start of eating, in order to start insulin secretion with the beginning of eating. It is not allowed to eat or smoke during the two hours. It is desirable to finish eating within 10 minutes at most. If the patient is taking treatment for diabetes, then the treatment is taken - unless there are special instructions. It is possible to drink water only during the two hours, and you must come to the laboratory a quarter of an hour before the end of the two hours.
  • sugar curve
    The patient - on the day of the analysis - must come to the laboratory in the morning, fasting for a period of 6-8 hours - while refraining from smoking during the analysis and taking a dose of glucose (1.75 grams per 1 kg of weight, with a maximum of 75 grams).
  • Pregnancy urine
    The first urine in the morning is preferred as the pregnancy hormone is more concentrated--but any urine sample during the day is possible, and if the result is negative, a blood pregnancy test is suggested because this test is more sensitive.
  • urine culture
    It is required to wash the hands and genitals with soap and water (and it is preferable in some special cases to cleanse the urine hole with a disinfectant such as Dettol) - then we wash again with water to remove the effect of the disinfectant - then empty the first drops of urine into the toilet and collect the rest in the sterile container provided by the laboratory as well It is preferable to refrain from taking the antibiotic for 48 hours in order to give the microbe a chance to grow (in case the sample is sent from home, please reach the sample to the laboratory within two hours at most so that the microbe does not die or the bacterial count increases).
  • 24 hour urine collection
    We empty the bladder of urine in the toilet and record the time (for example, at 9 am), then we collect any urine after that until the same time (for example, 9 am of the next day). The urine jar must be kept within 24 hours in the refrigerator until it is sent to the laboratory, especially In the summer.
  • Urine 3 days in a row or spit 3 days in a row
    This analysis works to detect the tuberculosis microbe in 3 samples because the microbe can appear in one sample and not appear in another sample
  • Semen analysis
    It is required to abstain from sexual intercourse or the occurrence of wet dreams for a period of 3-5 consecutive days, so that the quantity is not affected. It is also preferable to give the sample in the laboratory, with attention to placing the first drops of semen, because these drops contain 3/4 of the number of sperms. However, if the sample was brought from home, it is not necessary It should take more than 20 minutes. It should also be noted that the presence of water, soap, or cream inside the semen bottle affects the movement and vitality of the sperm. The semen is examined in the branch to record its viscosity after 20 minutes, as well as its motility an hour after taking the sample.
  • prostate
    The analysis is carried out on a previous date, and it is required to abstain from sexual intercourse or wet dreams for a period of 3-5 days before conducting the analysis, and to take a urine sample before the prostate and another urine sample after the prostate to differentiate whether the pus is from the penis, the prostate, or the urethra. The sample is examined in the laboratory for Trichomonase.
  • swab from the penis
    The urine is reserved for an hour before the test is performed, so that the urine stream is completely dry, to make sure that the microbe is from the penis and not from the urine.
  • swab from the vagina
    This sample is at a previous date, and it is required not to have sexual intercourse for two days in order to make sure that the microbe has had its opportunity to grow, while abstaining from antibiotics for 48 hours.
  • fecal farm
    The sample must arrive at the laboratory within two hours at most, because there are some microbes that die quickly and samples are not accepted in Pampers or carton boxes because they absorb fluids from the sample, and dehydration kills the microbes. It is preferable to abstain from antibiotics for 48 hours - and if the sample is brought from home Write it on Job Order
  • Occult Blood in the stool
    The patient refrains for 48 hours from eating all kinds of red meat, liver, radishes, rheumatic drugs, or drugs containing aspirin, vitamin C, cortisone, or iron, and he is not allowed to take laxatives.
  • PSA
    Before conducting the analysis, the patient refrains from inserting a scope, catheter, or rectal exam of the prostate, because this will affect the result of the analysis, unless there is another opinion of the attending physician, in which case it is noted on the Job Order.
  • Asthma and epilepsy medications
    The drug is taken for 5 days regularly, in order to reach a stable level of the drug in the blood, and it is stipulated that there should be no vomiting or diarrhea for 48 hours before conducting the analysis, because this will affect the dose and thus the level of the drug in the blood. A sample is taken before any dose to calculate the percentage of the drug in the lowest level (Trough) Then another sample is taken after taking the drug (it differs from one drug to another) to calculate the highest level of the drug in the blood (Peak) in order to make sure that the effective dose is without reaching drug poisoning.
  • Paul Kamel
    It is preferable to wash the genitals with water, then dry them, then empty the first drop of urine into the toilet, and put the rest in the cup provided by the laboratory.
  • stool analysis
    It is preferable to bring the stool sample in the cup provided by the laboratory to ensure the accuracy of the analysis. If the result appears negative, it is suggested to repeat the analysis after making a simple physical effort before entering the bathroom.
  • sedimentation speed
    It is preferable to fast from 6-8 hours
  • Microalbuminurea (microalbuminuria)
    The second morning urine sample before any effort
  • Urine 3 days in a row or spit 3 days in a row
    This analysis works to detect the tuberculosis microbe in 3 samples because the microbe can appear in one sample and not appear in another sample
  • CA.19.9
    Fasting is required for 6-8 hours
  • (for bean anemia) G6PD
    This analysis should not be performed after a blood transfusion or after a relapse until 2-4 weeks have passed.
  • IRON. TIBC
    It is preferable in the morning, it is preferable to fast from 6-8 hours, it is preferable before the start of iron treatment, it is preferable before a blood transfusion, it is preferable after the end of the menstrual period.
  • Cyclosporine
    Do not eat citrus and fatty meals before the analysis. When doing follow-up, it is preferable to withdraw the sample at the same time of the day (morning or evening period)
  • Catecholamine
    Collect the urine of 24 hours in a bottle containing acid that the patient receives from the laboratory, provided that he refrain for a period of no less than 72 hours from consuming coffee, tea, chocolate, vanilla, licorice, soda and carbonated water.
  • Aldosterone - Renin
    It is required to reduce salt for 3 days and sit for two hours (Renin) and for 4 hours (Aldosterone) without exertion in the laboratory before taking the sample.
