The cholinesterase test in Delhi or any other city (also known as serum cholinesterase test) measures the levels of 2 substances required for the functioning of the nervous system. Those two substances are known as Acetylcholinesterase and Pseudocholinesterase. These substances are essential for the nerves to send signals throughout the system. Acetylcholinesterase is found in the nervous tissue and red blood cells. Pseudocholinesterase is found majorly in the liver. These two neurotransmitters (part of the nervous system) are essential for the functioning and movement of the body.

About Cholinesterase Test

Why is the Cholinesterase test done?

The doctor prescribes this test if the person may have been exposed to chemicals used in pesticides, such as organophosphates. This test checks whether there is any chemical poisoning in the blood. These chemicals are known as cholinesterase inhibitors, and excess amounts of these chemicals could be fatal. Signs of overexposure to such chemicals include:

  • Slowing down of the heart rate
  • Tightness in the chest
  • More saliva than usual
  • Urinating more than usual
  • Blurry vision or watery eyes
  • Pupils in the eye getting smaller with headaches
  • Runny nose, coughing, or constant wheezing
  • Diarrhoea

These symptoms may vary, but a doctor should be consulted as soon as possible.

What does the Cholinesterase test measure?

Cholinesterase is an important enzyme needed by the nervous system to work properly and send signals throughout the body. The test looks for any chemical poisoning in the blood.

The chemicals that interfere with the working of cholinesterase are known as cholinesterase inhibitors. The chemicals include substances like carbamates and organophosphates. They are most commonly used in insecticides and have been used as chemical warfare agents.

These chemicals have been in use for the past few decades. When these chemicals enter the body, the person might experience difficulty breathing and general weakness in the muscles.

The test is recommended if certain symptoms of nervous system problems are seen in an individual. Those symptoms include:

  • Weakness when a person bends their neck
  • Nervous problems in the neck
  • General weakness in the muscles
  • Not being able to breathe normally
  • Contact a doctor if you see these signs and get your tests done.
Risk/Side-effects of Cholinesterase test

Generally, there is very little risk of any major symptoms inside the body. The person might feel slight pain (or some bruising) in the area where the needle has been pierced to take the blood. But those tend to disappear pretty quickly and not cause any major problems to the patient.

In very rare cases, the patient might develop blood collection under the skin or infection at the site where the needle was pierced. But that is a very rare occurrence and nothing major to worry about.

Interpreting the Cholinesterase Test Results

Interpreting the Cholinesterase Test Results

After one is exposed to these chemicals, cholinesterase activity could drop to 80% less than normal before the occurrence of any symptoms and up to 40% before the symptoms become severe.

A significant decrease in the level of cholinesterase is an indication of overexposure to organophosphate compounds. Both the activities of plasma and red blood cells are affected after being exposed to chemicals. There is a sudden drop in the functioning of Acetylcholinesterase and pseudocholinesterase. Pseudocholinesterase activity might be restored to normal after a few weeks, while Acetylcholinesterase could take about 3 months to get normal.

The problems with the nervous system could also be due to genetic conditions. Generally, the tests do not show higher cholinesterase levels since the chemicals mainly inhibit its functioning and reduce its levels. Reduced levels could also be due to individuals’ chronic liver disease and malnutrition.
