Medical Tests For Weight Gain


Ladies, this post is especially for you ! This is the list of tests that you should get done if you are experiencing sudden Weight Gain. For detailed reasons on sudden weight gain , please read my post here.

Medical Tests For Weight Gain

  • Complete Haemogram – For complete blood count
  • Iron/Transferin/ Transferrin Saturation% – For Anemia. Please read details here.
  • Lipid Profile Test – Checks good and bad cholesterol levels
  • Liver Function TestΒ – For state of Liver
  • Renal Profile Test (Blood Urea Nitrogen/ Creatinine/ Electrolytes/ Calcium)
  • Serum Uric Acid
  • Blood testosterone – Please read details here. If testosterone is high, then PCOS profiling is done to check PCOS.
  • Thyroid Function – This measures T3, T4 and TSH levels
  • Urogram (Microalbumin/ Creatinine/ Albumin) – For state of Kidneys
  • Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) – For insuling level, directly related to Diabetes
  • Fasting Blood Sugar – For diabetes
  • Vitamin B 12 levels
  • Folic Acid
  • Vitamin D and D3 levels
  • Complete Urine Analysis ReportΒ  ( Glucose / Bilirubin / Ketone / Protein / Uribilinogen / Leucocytes)

All the tests above are Blood tests except the last one. These tests cover every possibility of malfunction that could be causing weight gain. The approximate cost of these tests is around Rs 7000-8000. I was told that these tests should be done in a span of 6-8 months. However, you can just do a particular test which has given abnormal results in 6 months and the rest once in a year.

By the way, this is exactly how I behave during blood tests πŸ˜›
