Saima was concerned about her mother as she was suffering from weakness and fatigue for two weeks. Being the Assistant Editor for an English daily newspaper always keeps her preoccupied, and not a day goes by that she thinks about taking her mother to the doctor. One day she learnt about an international chain laboratory Thyrocare Home service and decided to consult them. So the next day she asked them to come by and do a blood test on her mother. Although most of the results came out normal, it did however show that her haemoglobin levels dropped mildly and her creatinine levels were much elevated. This check up came as a saving grace for them; it served as an early intervention of anemia which could later prevent complications like heart failure.
Thyrocare Bangladesh Limited started its journey in 2014 as the third lab of Thyrocare Technologies Ltd after Mumbai and Bahrain. They mostly operate as a B2B (business to business) organisation working for renowned hospitals all over Dhaka City and now they are looking to expand their horizons by also being a B2C (business to customer) organisation providing various services for their clients such as home sample collecting where they send a representative to collect their samples. Another distinct service they provide clients with is called cold storage where they store your sample for 7 days just in case your doctor asks you to run more tests. This saves you from the hassle of giving blood for a second time. TBL is providing international laboratory services in 44 districts including Dhaka, Bangladesh. Having over 20 collection booths and 300 corporate clients, over 2000 doctors from all over the country refer patients to TBL for home/office blood collection or to go to the booths for giving samples. TBL has a 24×7 call centre through which anyone can request for home/office blood collection services.
Governed by the preventive care approach, Thyrocare Bangladesh Ltd is advocating health screening for general and also for special categories. As part of its CSR activities, TBL observes international significant days such as World Diabetes Day, World Osteoporosis Day, Women’s Day etc to raise awareness about common health problems and screening process for early detection of health problems. Experience sharing events with community doctors from all parts of the country is also a common practice at Thyrocare Bangladesh. Apart from that, they also set up stall for Annual Diabetes and Endocrine Conferences held in Dhaka where doctors and other health professionals come from all over the country. Thyrocare organises Park Health Screening Awareness and Activation programs regularly-which also provides free health check up and awareness tips. They also introduced Corporate Health Screening Program for several corporate houses of the country. Considering social occasions, TBL provides special discount offers on screening packages as well. What really distinguishes Thyrocare from other establishments is that it is CAP (College of American Pathologies) certified; meaning, not only are their tests of world class standards but the reports are also internationally accepted.
