Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) with eGRF Blood Test
- Glucose - Blood sugar level is the most direct test to screen for diabetes and is also used in diabetes management.
- Uric Acid - Uric acid is produced in two ways, from digesting food consumed and the natural breakdown of the body's cells. Uric acid is a by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys. It is also an indicator of kidney function.
- Kidney Profile
- Bun or Urea Nitrogen (BUN) - An indicator of kidney function.
- Creatinine, Serum - An indicator of kidney function.
- Bun/Creatinine Ratio - Calculated by dividing BUN by creatinine. This ratio can suggest conditions including dehydration or intestinal bleeding.
- Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) - Measures kidney function to determine kidney disease stage and detect early kidney damage.
- Liver Panel
- Protein, Total - Assists in determining liver and kidney function and nutritional health.
- Albumin serum - One of the major proteins essential for the healthy function of the liver and kidneys.
- Globulin, Total - One of the major proteins that assist the blood in clotting properly and also comprises infection-fighting antibodies.
- Albumin/Globulin Ratio - Calculated by dividing albumin by globulin. When paired with other test results, this ratio can assist in diagnosing various liver problems.
- Bilirubin, Total - Aids in the detection of hepatitis, sickle cell, anemia, cirrhosis, alcohol, and drug abuse. High concentrations may result in jaundice.
- Alkaline Phosphatase - A protein vital in detecting bone disorders and liver disease.
- Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT) - An enzyme helpful in evaluating liver function. An elevated level is an indication of hepatitis.
- Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT) - An enzyme helpful in identifying liver damage. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
- Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) - An enzyme found mainly in the heart, muscles, liver, kidney, brain, and red blood cells. When an organ of the body is damaged, LDH is released in more significant quantities into the bloodstream.
- Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT) - Also known as Gamma-Glutamyl Transpeptidase (GGTP). GGT is an enzyme that is produced predominantly in the liver. This level is often elevated in situations that diseases are present that affect the liver or bile ducts.
- Fluids & Electrolytes
- Sodium - One of the major salts in body fluid. Sodium is important in 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 balance.
- Carbon Dioxide, Total - Used to help detect, evaluate, and monitor electrolyte imbalances.
- Mineral and Bone
- Iron, Total - An abnormally low test result could indicate anemia caused by iron deficiency.
- Calcium - A mineral essential for developing and maintaining healthy bones and teeth. It is also important for the normal function of muscles, nerves, and blood clotting.
- Phosphorus - A crucial mineral for energy production, muscle and nerve function, and bone formation. Most of the body's phosphorus mixes with calcium to form teeth and bones. Phosphorus is also important for keeping the body's acid-base balanced.
Lipid Profile 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 increased risk of coronary heart disease.
- Triglycerides - are fats in the blood that provide energy to the body's cells. 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. Conversely, low HDL could result from a lack of exercise and smoking.
- LDL Cholesterol - Low-density lipoproteins contain the most significant 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 - is 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.
Thyroid Panel with Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
The thyroid gland synthesizes and releases hormones that impact various metabolic processes. The hormones are iodine-containing amino acids, including T4 and T3. A comprehensive test is available to evaluate thyroid hormone levels, including T4, T3 Uptake, FTI/T7, and TSH.
CBC with Differential and Platelets
- White Blood Cells (WBC) - The body's primary defense against disease and helps to fight infection.
- Red Blood Cells (RBC) - Responsible for carrying oxygen and carbon dioxide away from all cells. Iron deficiency will lower the RBC count.
- Hemoglobin - A chemical compound inside red cells that transports oxygen through the bloodstream to all body cells. Hemoglobin gives the red color to blood.
- Hematocrit - Measures the amount of space red blood cells take up in the blood. It is reported as a percentage.
- Neutrophils - Neutrophils are the most common type of white blood cells and are created by the bone marrow to combat a wide range of inflammatory and infectious diseases.
- Lymphocytes - B-cells and T-cells are lymphocytes that fight bacteria and other pathogens in the blood. They are primarily found in the lymph system.
- Monocytes - Working alongside neutrophils, monocytes play a vital role in fighting infections and other diseases and clearing away dead or damaged cells.
- Eosinophils - White blood cells called eosinophils become activated in response to allergies and certain infections.
- Basophils - Basophils play a role in detecting infections early on, as well as aiding in wound healing and reacting to allergic responses.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) - The average hemoglobin concentration within a red blood cell.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) - The average hemoglobin concentration percentage within a red blood cell.
- Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) - The average size of red blood cells.
- Platelets - Blood cell particles associated with the forming of blood clots.
- Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) - Measures the amount of red blood cell variation in volume and size.
- Absolute Neutrophils - The absolute neutrophil count measures the number of neutrophils in your blood. Normal range is 2,500-7,000 per microliter. Counts outside this range indicate a possible condition.
- Absolute Lymphocytes - To calculate your absolute lymphocyte count, multiply your white blood cell count by the percentage of lymphocytes. This gives you the number of lymphocytes as an absolute number.
- Absolute Monocytes - The absolute monocyte count indicates the number of monocytes in the blood, helping to identify if the count is normal, high, or low.
- Absolute Eosinophils - Absolute eosinophil count measures the number of eosinophils in blood by multiplying the percentage of eosinophils in a complete blood count with the total number of white blood cells in the same count.
- Absolute Basophils - Absolute basophil count is calculated by multiplying the percentage of basophils by the total number of white blood cells in a blood sample.
Insulin-like Growth Factor Test (IGF-1)
IGF-1 is a hormone produced in the liver and muscles in response to HGH stimulation. The IGF-1 Blood Test diagnoses HGH-related issues and monitors patients on HGH therapy.
Testosterone is a hormone responsible for male characteristics. Its blood level is checked in men for sexual abnormalities and in women for virilization. The total testosterone test measures both bound and free testosterone in a blood sample and is commonly reported in ng/dL.
Testosterone levels can be measured to diagnose certain health problems. Most testosterone is bound to proteins, while free testosterone is the unbound form. A free testosterone test measures the active form, which is less common but useful for diagnosing some medical conditions. The results are reported in pg/dL.
Urinalysis with Complete Microscopic Examination
The Urinalysis with Complete Microscopic Examination is a diagnostic test that can detect urinary tract infections, manage renal diseases, and diagnose urinary tract neoplasms, inflammatory or neoplastic diseases adjacent to the urinary tract, systemic diseases, and urinary tract infections.
Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy
Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and teeth and also regulates calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium levels in the blood. It can be obtained through dietary intake or exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to various health conditions, and those at risk include the elderly, obese, those with dark skin, and people with limited sun exposure or fat absorption issues.
Iron and Total Iron-binding Capacity (TIBC)
The iron and TIBC blood test measures iron serum and TIBC to calculate transferrin saturation, an indicator of the body's iron status. Iron deficiency shows low iron levels and high TIBC, resulting in low transferrin saturation. Iron overload shows high iron levels and low or normal TIBC, resulting in increased transferrin saturation.
Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
The Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test measures the levels of a protein produced by the prostate gland in the blood. It is used to identify elevated PSA levels, which may indicate the presence of prostate cancer. However, high PSA levels can also be caused by non-threatening conditions such as infection or an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
The E2 test, also known as estradiol blood test, measures the level of 17 beta-estradiol in the blood. It is a commonly ordered fertility test for females with infertility problems and those seeking in vitro fertilization support. However, it is also conducted to monitor estradiol levels in both fertile females and males.
DHEA sulfate is a hormone that helps in developing male secondary sexual characteristics during puberty. The adrenal cortex, testes, and ovaries produce it. ACTH and other factors regulate its secretion. Elevated levels may indicate adrenal function abnormalities and can result in virilization and amenorrhea.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
The pituitary gland releases HGH, or growth hormone, in pulses throughout the day. It's critical for normal growth and development in children and regulates bone density, muscle mass, and lipid metabolism in adults. It also plays a significant role in tissue repair, muscle growth, bone strength, brain function, physical and mental health, energy, and metabolism.
