A Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP8) is a blood test consisting of eight tests that provide information about the body’s metabolism, kidney function, electrolyte levels, and glucose levels. It can be recommended by a doctor to check for underlying health issues such as fatigue, muscle cramps, an irregular heartbeat, or to monitor the effect of medication on the kidneys and electrolyte levels. The test is quick and simple, requiring a small blood sample to be taken from the arm. The results of the test can indicate diabetes, imbalanced electrolyte levels, or problems with the kidneys. The BMP8 test is a useful tool for monitoring overall health and making any necessary adjustments to diet or medication.
