Table 4 Laboratory measurements

From: Task shifting of frontline community health workers for cardiovascular risk reduction: design and rationale of a cluster randomised controlled trial (DISHA study) in India

Clinical Parameter Laboratory parameter Method
Diabetes Plasma glucose Enzymatic Colorimetric Assay method (modified GOD-PAP method based on the work of Trinder, 1969)
Dyslipidemia Cholesterol Enzymatic In vitro Calorimetric method (automated clinical chemistry analyzer Roche/Hitachi 902)
Triglycerides Enzymatic Calorimetric test
(Based on the work by Wahlefeld using lipoprotein lipase from microorganisms for rapid and complete hydrolysis of triglycerides to glycerol followed by oxidation to dihydroxyacetone phosphate and hydrogen peroxide

Triglycerides Estimation using Friedewald and Fredrickson Formula, 1972
Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) Homogeneous Enzymatic Assay for direct quantitative determination (automated clinical chemistry analyzer Roche/Hitachi 902), for samples with triglycerides more than 400 mg/dl
Very low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL) Estimation using Friedewald and Fredrickson Formula, 1972
Blood Routine Hemoglobin Indirect Cyanmethemoglobin method
