Wellness #2 Profile with 50+ results including:
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Used as a broad screening test to check for such disorders as anemia, infection, and many other diseases, as it analyzes different parts of the blood.
Total T-4 (Thyroxine); T-3 uptake; Free Thyroxine Index (FTI); T-7; and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Cholesterol, Total, HDL Cholesterol (High-density lipoproteins, or the "good" cholesterol), LDL Cholesterol (Low-density lipoproteins, or the "bad" cholesterol), Cholesterol/HDL Ratio Calculated by dividing the total cholesterol by the HDL cholesterol, and Triglycerides (fat in the blood)
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT), Albumin,Serum; Albumin/Globulin Ratio; Alkaline Phosphatase; Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT; Bilirubin, Total; Globulin, Total; Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH); Protein; GGT Also known as Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase.
Urea Nitrogen (BUN); Creatinine Serum, Uric Acid. BUN/Creatinine Ratio
Minerals and Bone
Iron Total, Calcium, Phosphorus
Fluids & Electrolytes
Chloride Serum, Potassium, Sodium, Carbon Dioxide
Blood sugar level is the most direct single test to uncover diabetes and may be used not only to identify diabetes, but also to evaluate control of the disease.
IGF1 Somatomedin-C (SC) produced in the liver in response to stimulation by growth hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. This insulin-like growth factor level is used to evaluate disturbances of growth and monitor treatment with growth hormones.
Testosterone, Total & Free- Testosterone is a hormone that causes male characteristics. The blood level is used in men to investigate abnormal sexual development and sexual dysfunction. Small amounts are produced in women's ovaries and levels are tested to evaluate virilization.
Urinalysis with Complete Microscopic Examination - Detects abnormalities of urine and urinary tract infection (UTI); diagnoses and manages renal diseases, urinary tract infection, urinary tract neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases adjacent to the urinary tract.
Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy. Vitamin D sufficiency, along with diet and exercise, has emerged as one of the most important preventive factors in human health. Hundreds of studies now link vitamin D deficiency with significantly higher rates of many forms of cancer‚ as well as heart disease‚ osteoporosis‚ multiple sclerosis and many other conditions and diseases. Vitamin D tests are used to determine if bone malformation, bone weakness, or abnormal metabolism of calcium (reflected by abnormal calcium, phosphorus or PTH tests) is occurring as a result of a deficiency or excess of vitamin D. Because vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and is absorbed from the intestine like a fat, vitamin D tests are at times used to monitor individuals with diseases that interfere with fat absorption, such as cystic fibrosis and Crohn's disease, to assure that they have adequate amounts of vitamin D. Vitamin D tests are used to determine effectiveness of treatment when vitamin D, calcium, phosphorus, and/or magnesium supplementation is prescribed as well.
The Iron and Total Iron-binding Capacity test is used for testing differential diagnosis of anemia, evaluation of thalassemia and possible sideroblastic anemia, and the evaluation of iron poisoning. Specimen collection must be done before patient is given therapeutic iron or blood transfusion. Iron determinations on patients who have had blood transfusions should be delayed at least four days.
Estradiol is the primary reproductive hormone in nonpregnant women. This steroid hormone plays an important role in normal fetal development and in the development of secondary sexual characteristics in females. Estradiol influences the maturation and maintenance of the uterus during the normal menstrual cycle. Levels of estradiol steadily increase during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle in association with the growth and development of the ovarian follicle. As the follicular phase proceeds, estradiol exerts a negative feedback control on the pituitary, resulting in a drop in FSH levels. Near the end of the follicular phase, there is a dramatic increase in estradiol levels. At this point, the feedback of estradiol on the hypothalamus becomes positive and produces the midcycle surge of LH which immediately precedes ovulation. After ovulation, estradiol levels initially fall abruptly, but then increase as the corpus luteum forms. At the end of the cycle, levels fall off in anticipation of the initiation of the next follicular phase. During pregnancy, the placenta produces estradiol. Estradiol levels are generally low in menopause due to diminished ovarian production.Estradiol levels can also be dramatically elevated in germ cell tumors and tumors of a number of glands in both men and women.
