٭ A healthy person should have some [medical] tests carried out after every 6 months and a sick person should have them carried out according to the doctor’s instructions.
٭ It is not a sensible act to not have the tests carried out by thinking that if anything is diagnosed, one will have to receive medical treatment and he will have to avoid certain harmful things; because problem is not solved by neglecting the disease.
٭ It is better to have the following blood tests carried out:
1. Lipid Profile test (it includes cholesterol as well. Fasting for 12-14 hours is necessary for this test. You can also adopt this method that observe Sawm to please Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and have the test carried out after ‘Asr Salah. Otherwise, have dinner early in the night and have the test carried out in the morning before breakfast).
2. Sugar (Glucose)
3. Uric Acid
4. Serum Urea Creatinine (through this test, beginning of a risk of any kidney disease or kidney failure can be diagnosed and medical treatment can be received at the right time. It is necessary to keep an eye on it, because cases of kidney failure are increasing in our society nowadays).
