Calcitonin Test In Jalandhar

Calcitonin Test In Jalandhar

Starts from 600*

The hormone calcitonin is produced by the parafollicular cells of the thyroid gland. What are the main reasons why a calcitonin test in Jalandhar or any other city is recommended by the doctor is to see whether the functions of this hormone, which include increasing bone calcium content and decrease in blood calcium level, are well in check. This is because any value above the normal range of calcitonin levels can mean serious health issues like the possibility of lung cancer, thyroid disorder, insulinoma, etc.

About Calcitonin Test

Why Is Calcitonin Test Done?

Two important things to know when a doctor prescribes a calcitonin test in Jalandhar or any other city are the possible calcitonin test cost in the city and the reason why the test is being done. Most doctors recommend the calcitonin test in Jalandhar to check whether the treatment plan for medullary thyroid carcinoma for a patient is working or not. Another reason why patients need to take a calcitonin test is to see whether post-treatment completion, cancer has come back or not, and in some cases, it helps doctors detect early cancer for patients who have a family history of similar diseases and disorders, like medullary thyroid carcinoma.

What Does The Calcitonin Test Measure?

The main reason why doctors recommend a calcitonin test in Jalandhar or any other part of the country is to measure the level of calcitonin in the bloodstream of a patient. It is an important hormone that helps the body use calcium in the right way. In addition to that, calcitonin is also considered to be a type of tumour marker that helps with easier detection of the possibility of cancer for a patient.

Some of the common issues with an increased level of calcitonin in the bloodstream include thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma as well as other diseases including C-cell hyperplasia and multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2.

These are very extreme diseases and other than this, cancer of different types, especially throat. If you are already a patient of medullary thyroid carcinoma or any other type of thyroid disease, a high level of calcitonin can indicate the lack of positive impact of the current prescribed treatment plan and thus might require a change in treatment and medication. Additionally, if you have fought cancer in the past and still find high levels of calcitonin, it can mean that cancer that was treated has returned to the body.

Risk/Side Effects Of The Calcitonin Test

Other than knowing the calcitonin test cost, most patients want to enquire about the possible risks and side effects of the medical procedure involved with the test. As the test is completed with the help of a blood sample, there are no risks involved in the medical process of collecting the blood sample. However, some possible side effects can include bruising, slight soreness, dizziness, and bleeding but none of them is long-lasting and heals on their own in a couple of hours.

Interpreting Calcitonin Test Results

If you were asked to sit for a calcitonin test in Jalandhar or any other city, other than knowing the calcitonin test cost of that particular location, you also need to know how to read the test results properly. This is important as it helps you be more informed about your health and well-being and also opens your mind to any sort of treatment plan suggested by the doctor. Here are some pointers that can help you read the test results better.

  • According to experts, the normal value of calcitonin in the blood is less than 10 pg/mL. However, the normal values can be different for both men and women, with men having a higher level of calcitonin in the blood.
  • Any level above 10 pg/mL of calcitonin is harmful to the patient and will require further testing o a treatment plan based on the level.
  • If the patient has a calcitonin level of greater than 100 pg/mL, he/she has a higher risk for medullary thyroid carcinoma.
  • Patients with a calcitonin level between 10 to 100 pg/mL, have a <25% chance of falling prey to medullary thyroid carcinoma.
Results Potential Diagnosis
<10 pg/mL Normal range
>10 pg/mL Risky, further testing needed

Between 10 to 100 pg/mL Less than 25% chances of medullary thyroid carcinoma

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
