Guwahati: Assam’s well known Dispur Hospital has conducted a free lipid profile test series for the journalist-members of Guwahati Press Club today (April 09), where blood samples of 20 participants were collected. The series will continue for four more days (till Friday) at the press club premises and every day (12 noon to 1 pm) blood samples of 20 persons will be collected.

Mentionable is that  the lipid profile (lipid panel) tests include various types of blood screenings to measure the level of cholesterol and triglycerides. The tests can identify certain genetic diseases and determine approximate risks for cardiovascular disease, certain forms of pancreatitis and other related diseases.

In case the number of participants increases, the hospital management will resume the screening of blood samples after Bohag Bihu holidays also, informed Dr Jayanta Bardoloi, the managing director of Dispur Hospital. He also added that the reports will be available at the press club office.
