Test #580


Availability: In stock

Preparation Patient should be on a stable diet, ideally for two to three weeks prior to collection of blood, and should fast for 12 to 14 hours before collection of the specimen.
Test Results 1-2 days. May take longer based on weather, holiday or lab delays.

Heart Health #1 Baseline Includes:


Glucose-Blood sugar level, the most direct single test to discover diabetes, may be used not only to identify diabetes, but also to evaluate how one controls the disease. Kidney Profile
Bun or Urea Nitrogen Another by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys. BUN is an indicator of kidney function.
Creatinine, Serum Test is an indicator of kidney function.
Bun/Creatinine Ratio Results Calculated by dividing the BUN by the Creatinine.
Glomerular Filtration (eGFR) Test that provides an assessment of the filtering capacity of the kidney.
Fluids & Electrolytes
Sodium is one of the major salts in the body fluid and important in the body's water balance and the electrical activity of nerves and muscles.
Potassium Helps to control the muscles and nerves.
Chloride Similar to sodium, chloride helps to maintain the body's electrolyte balance.
Carbon Dioxide, Total Test used to aid in detecting, evaluating, and monitoring electrolyte imbalances.
Liver panel
Protein, Total Together with albumin, the protein total is a measure of the state of nutrition in the body.
Albumin, Serum one of the major proteins in the blood albumin is a reflection of the general state of nutrition.
Globulin, Total A major group of proteins in the blood that comprise the infection fighting antibodies.
Albumin/Globulin Ratio Calculated by dividing the albumin by the globulin.
Bilirubin, Total A chemical involved with liver functions. High concentrations of bilirubin may result in jaundice.
Alkaline Phosphatase A body protein important in diagnosing proper liver and bone functions.
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT)an enzyme found in heart and skeletal muscle, liver and other organs. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT) an enzyme found primarily in the liver, abnormalities may indicate liver disease.

The Lipid Profile is used to help determine heart disease risk and to help decide treatment if you are borderline or high risk. The results of the lipid profile and other known risk factors of heart disease are considered to develop treatment and follow-up. Depending on your results and other risk factors, treatment options may involve diet and exercise changes or lipid-lowering medications such as statins. Test Includes: Cholesterol, HDL (the "good" cholesterol), LDL (the "bad" cholesterol), VLDL, Triglycerides, and the Ratio of Good cholesterol to total.

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Cardiac Risk Assessment is used to assess the risk of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease.
