Lipid Panel With Total Cholesterol:HDL Ratio 

Cholesterol, Total, A sterol in the blood. Knowing your cholesterol level may be as important as knowing your blood pressure. Elevated cholesterol levels are associated with an increasing risk of coronary heart disease.
Triglycerides, Triglycerides are fat in the blood that are responsible for providing energy to the cells of the body. Triglycerides should be less than 400 mg/dl even while in a non-fasting state. 
HDL Cholesterol High-density lipoproteins are believed to take cholesterol away from cells and transport it back to the liver for removal or processing. They are known as the "good" cholesterol as people with high levels of HDL may have less heart disease. Low HDL could be the result of lack of exercise and smoking.
LDL Cholesterol Low-density lipoproteins contain the largest percentage of cholesterol and may be responsible for depositing cholesterol on the artery walls. They are known as the "bad" cholesterol.
Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio, calculated by dividing the total cholesterol by the HDL cholesterol. This is the ratio used by physicians in determining your relative risk for developing cardiovascular disease.

CMP-14 Includes:

Glucose-
Blood sugar level, the most direct 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,  BUN is another by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys and an indicator of kidney function. 
Creatinine, Serum,   An indicator of kidney function. 

Bun/Creatinine Ratio,
 Calculated by dividing the BUN by the Creatinine.
Glomerular Filtration (eGFR),  Provides an assessment of the filtering capacity of the kidney.

Liver panel
Protein, Total,  Together with albumin, it is a measure of the state of nutrition in the body.
Albumin,  Serum one of the major proteins in the blood and a reflection of the general state of nutrition. 
Globulin, Total,  A major group of proteins in the blood comprising 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 may result in jaundice.
Alkaline Phosphatase,  A body protein important in diagnosing proper bone and liver functions.
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT), an enzyme found in skeletal and heart muscle, liver and other organs. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT),  an enzyme found primarily in the liver. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.

Fluids & Electrolytes
Sodium, 
One of the major salts in the body fluid, sodium is important in the body's water balance and the electrical activity of nerves and muscles.
Potassium,  Helps to control the nerves and muscles.
Chloride,   Similar to sodium, it helps to maintain the body's electrolyte , alance.
Carbon Dioxide, Total,  Used to help detect, evaluate, and monitor electrolyte imbalances.
Calcium- A mineral essential for development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. It is important also for the normal function of muscles, nerves and blood clotting).

Hemoglobin (Hgb) A1c Blood Test

The A1c (Glycohemoglobin) test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the last two to three months. This is done by measuring the concentration of glycated (also often called glycosylated) hemoglobin A1c. Hemoglobin is an oxygen-transporting protein that is found inside red blood cells (RBCs). The predominant form is hemoglobin A.  In 2010, the American Diabetes Association affirmed the decision of an international expert committee recomendation to use the A1c test to diagnose diabetes with a threshold >/= 6.5%.  Point-of-care A1c assays are not sufficiently accurate at this time for diagnostic purposes.
