A Stress Assessment is important if you are under severe stress due to any personal or professional issue. Stress is the root of various health disorders, and it could abruptly increase the cholesterol level blood pressure, leading to a heart attack. The health package involves various tests.
The Complete Blood Count test is one of them; it is conducted to determine the cause of the stress-related disorder, especially if it is secondary to infection. Other than that, an inflammation marker test is also involved, which measures the level of CRP (c-reactive protein) and ESR (Erythrocyte sedimentation rate). The level of these can lead to depression and stress.
The Stress Assessment also includes lipid profile, thyroid function, hormone test, and Vitamin D total. A lipid profile is evaluated to check the cholesterol levels and other lipids. The high levels of triglycerides, LDL, and decreasing HDL are all related to stress-related illnesses. Vitamin D Total is done to detect deficiency of vitamin D as it could have an impact on mental health and lead to inability to cope with stress.
The cortisol level test checks high or low cortisol levels, which can lead to stress-related health disorders. The thyroid profile measures the level of thyroid hormones, and the abnormal level of hormones can be due to stress and lead to depression.
