What is the purpose of this test?
Order this Daniel Plan #2 Blood Test Panel provides a comprehensive health assessment to give individuals a baseline to judge progress throughout the Daniel Plan. In addition, individuals may use these results to guide them in making dietary and lifestyle changes to improve overall health and decrease the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and nutritional deficiencies.
The Daniel Plan #2 Blood Test Panel includes:
Wellness #2 Essential Panel:
A detailed assessment of overall health and contains 55 separate laboratory tests, including:
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) with eGFR:
- Glucose - The blood sugar level is the most direct test to screen for diabetes and is also used in diabetes management.
- 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 the 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 significant proteins essential for the healthy function of the liver and kidney.
- Globulin, Total - One of the major proteins that assist the blood in clotting and adequately comprise infection-fighting antibodies.
- Albumin/Globulin Ratio - Calculated by dividing the albumin by globulin. When paired with other test results, this ratio can assist in diagnosing various liver problems.
- Bilirubin, Total - Aids in detecting 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.
- Fluids & Electrolytes
- Sodium - One of the major salts in body fluid. Sodium is essential 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.
- Calcium - A mineral essential for developing and maintaining healthy bones and teeth. It is also vital for the normal function of muscles, nerves, and blood clotting.
Lipid Panel With Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio:
- Cholesterol, Total - a sterol in the blood. Knowing the cholesterol level may be as important as knowing the blood pressure. Elevated cholesterol levels are associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease.
- Triglycerides - fat in the blood that provides 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. Low HDL could be the result of 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 - calculated by dividing the total cholesterol by the HDL cholesterol. This is the ratio used by physicians in determining the relative risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Thyroid Panel with Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) - Thyroid function is critical to your metabolism and affects your energy level, weight control, heart rate, and more. The thyroid-stimulating hormone is produced in the pituitary gland and stimulates the production of thyroid hormones. The TSH helps to identify an overactive or underachieved thyroid state. This comprehensive evaluation of your thyroid hormone levels includes: T-3 Uptake, T4, Free Thyroxine Index (T7), and Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential and Platelets - A complete blood count (CBC) will give important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A CBC helps health professionals check any symptoms, such as fatigue, weakness, or bruising, that you may have. A CBC also helps diagnose conditions such as anemia, infection, and many other disorders.
Mineral and Bone - Total Iron, Calcium, and Phosphorus
Homocysteine - Helps diagnose vitamin B6 and B12 deficiency, as well as a folate deficiency, and to identify patients who may be at risk for heart disease or strokes.
Hemoglobin A1C - The 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 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 recommendation to use the A1c test to diagnose diabetes with a threshold >/= 6.5%. However, point-of-care A1c assays are not sufficiently accurate at this time for diagnostic purposes.
Free T3 (Tri-iodothyronine) - typically represents only approximately 5% of the thyroid hormone and, like thyroxine, is almost entirely bound to the carrier proteins, with only 0.25% of the total being in the free state. Therefore, the measurement of Free T-3 is of value in confirming the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism when an elevated free or total thyroxine level is found. Abnormal total and free tri-iodothyronine concentrations can appear in T3 toxicosis in normal thyroxine levels. Free T3 levels are not affected by carrier protein variation.
Free T4 - is the active form of thyroxine and is a more accurate reflection of thyroid hormone function. The free T4 test is considered by many to be a more accurate reflection of thyroid hormone function, and, in most cases, its use has replaced that of the total T4 test. A total T4 or free T4 test is primarily ordered in response to an abnormal TSH result. However, sometimes the T4 will be ordered along with a TSH to give the doctor a complete evaluation of the adequacy of the thyroid hormone feedback system. These tests are usually ordered when a person has symptoms of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.
Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy - Is often ordered for individuals with vitamin D deficiency symptoms. It may also be ordered before an individual begins osteoporosis drug therapy. Low levels may indicate a dietary deficiency, malabsorption, or lack of exposure to sunlight.
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) - This test determines whether a high or increasing amount of CRP in your blood suggests an acute infection or inflammation.
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody (TPO) - Helps provide a differential diagnosis of hypothyroidism and thyroiditis.
Testosterone Free (Direct) with Total Testosterone Serum Test - Evaluates hirsutism and masculinization in women; assesses testicular function in clinical states where the testosterone binding proteins may be altered.
Ferritin - Helps screen for an iron deficiency or overload that may cause severe health conditions.
