HbA1c, CRP, U-ALBUMIN PROCESS 

Step 1
Insert a test panel.

Step 2
Take a sample and mix it with a buffer solution.

Step 3
Apply mixed sample to the test panel.

Step 4
Check the results after 3 minutes.

LIPID PROFILE PROCESS

Step 1
Insert a Lipid Profile test panel. After white calibration, remove the test panel.

Step 2
Take 35ul of whole blood (Serum / Plasma).

Step 3
Apply the sample to the test panel and insert it again immediately.

Step 4Check the TC, TG, HDL, LDL, LDL.HDL and non-HDL results after 3 minutes.

Why HbA1c?

Two large-scale studies – the UK Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) and the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) – demonstrated that improving HbA1c by 1% (or 11 mmol/mol) for people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes cuts the risk of microvascular complications by 25%.

Standardization

MultiCare™ is CE marked to meet the European IVD Directive and has been anchored to the IFCC Reference Method.

The program is also certified by the NGSP as being traceable to the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT).

Reference Range

The HbA1c test measures your average blood glucose for the past 2 to 3 months.
Normal: less than 5.7% (less than 38.8mmol/mol)
Prediabetes: 5.7% to 6.4% (38.8mmol/mol~46.4mmol/mol)
Diabetes: 6.5% or higher (47.5mmol/mol or higher)

High Cholesterol leads plaque in the arteries?

Everyone age 20 and older should have their cholesterol measured at least once every 5 year.It is best to have a blood test called a “lipoprotein profile” to find out their cholesterol numbers. This blood test is done after a 9-to 12-hours fast and gives informaiton about:

  • Total Cholesterol
  • LDL(BAD) cholesterol – the main source of cholesterol buildup and blockage in the arterise
  • HDL(GOOD) cholesterol – helps keep cholesterol from building up in the arteries
  • Triglycerides – another form of fat in your blood

Reference Range

The American National Cholesterol Education Program(NCEP) Adult Treatment Panel (ATP) lll recommends the following cut-off value:

LDL Cholesterol
<100 mg/dL (2.56 mmol/L) optimal
100-129 mg/dL (2.56-3.3 mmol/L) near optimal
130-159 mg/dL (3.3-4.0 mmol/L) borderline high
160-189 mg/dL (4.1-4.85 mmol/L) high
>189 mg/dL (4.85 mmol/L) very high

HDL Cholesterol
<40 mg/dL (1.01 mmol/L) low
40 mg/dL (1.01-1.54 mmol/L) borderline
>60 mg/dL (1.54 mmol/L) desirable
<200 mg/dL (5.1 mmol/L) desirable

Total Cholesterol
<200 mg/dL (5.1 mmol/L) desirable
200-240 mg/dL (5.1-6.1 mmol/L) borderline high
>240 mg/dL (6.1 mmol/L) high

The European Society of Cardiologists recommends the following:

LDL Cholesterol < 3 mmol/L (115 mg/dL)
HDL Cholesterol > 1 mmol/L (40 mg/dL)
Total Cholesterol < 5 mmol/L (190 mg/dL)

The acute phase response

CRP is one of a group of substances known as “acute phase reactants.” Among all acute-phase reactants, CRP rises the fastest and is the most reliable indicator of clinical disease and its severity.

An increased CRP may be due to:

  • Inflammatory disorders – eg> inflammatory arthritis, vasculitis, Crohn’s disease
  • Tissue injury or necrosis- eg> burns, necrosis, myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolus
  • Infections
  • Malignancy
  • Tissue refection
  • Standardization

Reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescribing

Many study shows that CRP testing in patients with acute cough/RTI many reduce antibiotic prescribing as CRP is increased by bacterial infections and generally less elevated in viral infections.

Upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) are mostly caused by virus in about 80% of cases. Antibiotic misuse for viral URTI is a serious problem that results in resistant strains of bacteria.

Careful use and interpretation of CRP testing in patients with RTI has the potential to benefit patients and to help GPs in the important struggle against antibiotic resistance.

The usefulness of point of care testing for diagnosing and managing albuminuria

Urine albumin test can be used in many conditions including;

  • Diabetic kidney disease.
  • High blood pressure
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Kidney damage from nephrotic syndrome
  • Cardiovascular disease

Nephropathy screening tool for diabetes

ADA recommends diabetes should have a urine test for albuminuria at least once a year.

  • Type 1 patients with ≥5-yr diabetes duration
  • All type 2 patients starting at diagnosis

Reference Range

Reference range (with normal urine volume)

Normal values: <30 mg/L
Microalbuminuria: 20-200 mg/L
Clinical albuminuria: >200 mg/L
