Frequently Asked Questions

The obesity profile measures the BMI along with adiponectin, leptin, cortisol, T3, T4, TSH, FBS, Lipid Profile, Electrolytes, Creatinine, Calcium, Phosphorous, Uric Acid levels in blood and routine Urine examination.

The Obesity test should be ideally done by individuals:

  • With BMI more than the normal recommended levels
  • With risk factors for obesity like diabetes, hypertriglyceridemia, cardiac ailments, kidney disorders
  • Obese patients to know the impact on overall health and multi-system involvement
  • With genetic predisposition to obesity
  • With childhood obesity to diagnose the cause for obesity
  • The test is done for assessing the probable genetic or hormonal causes for obesity
  • The Obesity profile may be useful to know the impact of obesity on the other organs /systems
  • The test may be useful in cases of childhood obesity to know if there is any genetic predisposition.

This test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer. The urine sample is collected in a sterile container.


Individuals with high BMI levels are classified as overweight or obese depending on the levels. 


Low leptin levels may lead to leptin deficiency which may be a cause for childhood obesity

High leptin levels may also be seen in obese patients which may occur due to leptin resistance leading to excess calorie intake.

The levels should be correlated with the age, gender, BMI and overall health status of the individual.


Low adiponectin levels may lead to insulin resistance and may be seen in certain diabetic patients.

Hypoadiponectimia is also closely associated with the metabolic syndrome and with hypertriglyceridemic waist.

High circulating levels of adiponectin are associated with decreased risk of myocardial infraction, independent of other factors.

Apart from leptin and adiponectin levels, abnormal levels of FBS, Lipid Profile, electrolyte imbalance and other parameters may require further tests and other investigations.

  • Test for Obesity
  • Body fat test
  • Adiponectin Test
  • Leptin Test

Body mass index is the assessment of weight of the individual (kg) with respect to his height (in metres). This gives an overall assessment of the body weight distribution based on which the individual can be classified as normal, underweight, overweight or obese.

Adiponectin is produced by the adipose cells. The levels have an impact on the diabetes and triglycerides levels, and thus have an indirect impact on obesity. Adiponectin levels are based on the Body Mass Index [BMI].

Leptin is a protein hormone that plays a key role in regulating energy intake and energy expenditure, including appetite and metabolism. It prevents hunger. In addition to being a biomarker for body fat, serum leptin levels also reflect individual energy balance.

Cortisol along with Thyroid hormones T3, T4 give the hormonal impact of obesity.

Lipid profile includes a series of tests to assess the cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood.

FBS levels are tested to know the glucose levels and the diabetes status of the individual.

The creatinine and uric acid levels are measured to know the impact of obesity on the kidneys.

Electrolytes as well as Calcium and Phosphorus levels are measured to know the metabolic status of the body as obesity can often contribute to metabolic syndrome.
