Mother to be panel 64 €
When planning a pregnancy, it is important to have a general health check to prevent any health problems that may occur during your pregnancy. The tests included in the preconception panel for women help to evaluate the state of the immune system, the presence or absence of inflammation and the risk of anaemia, and provide an overview of thyroid, liver and kidney function and vitamin D, folate and blood glucose levels. During pregnancy, chronic inflammatory and infectious diseases that occur without symptoms may worsen and endanger the health of the mother and the foetus. The tests included in the panel also help to identify possible causes for your inability to get pregnant (e.g., thyroid-stimulating hormone or TSH). It is therefore important to check your health before becoming pregnant.
In addition to the main panel, doctors recommend testing for other health indicators. Relevant tests are included in the Mother to be panels for detecting infectious and sexually transmitted diseases.
Before or during pregnancy, a man who is suffering from an infectious disease (especially a sexually transmitted disease) can infect the pregnant woman and thus endanger the health of the foetus and/or the newborn. Infectious diseases can also be the reason for not getting pregnant. Therefore, the partner should also have a medical check-up using the Father to be panel for men developed by doctors.
The panel includes 10 tests:
- Complete blood count with white blood cell differential
- CRP (high-sensitivity)
- Fasting plasma glucose
- Creatinine + eGFR
- Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
- Free thyroxine (fT4)
- Vitamin D (25-OH)
- Urine test strip
