Fibromyalgia Blood Test Panel
A Fibromyalgia Blood Test Panel includes CBC, CMP-14, CRP high sensitivity, ANA, Sedimentation Rate, Creatine Kinase, Iron & TIBC, Ferritin, Magnesium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, TSH, and Urinalysis Complete.
Complete Blood Count (CBC) gives important information about the numbers and kinds of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A CBC helps your health professional check any symptoms, such as fatigue, weakness, or bruising, that you may have. A CBC also helps your health professional diagnose conditions, such as infection, anemia, and several other disorders.
Test includes: WBC, RBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW, Platelets, Neutrophils, Lymphs, Monocytes, Eos, Basos, Neutrophils (Absolute), Lymphs (Absolute), Monocytes(Absolute), Eos (Absolute), Basos (Absolute), Immature Granulocytes, Immature Grans (Abs)
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) with eGFR is a group of 14 laboratory tests ordered to give information about the current status of your liver, kidneys, and electrolyte and acid/base balance. The test gives the current status of your blood sugar and blood proteins also.
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.
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.
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 balance.
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).
C-Reactive Protein- Used as a test for infections, inflammatory diseases, and neoplastic diseases. CRP is a more sensitive, rapidly responding indicator than ESR. CRP may be used to detect early postoperative wound infection and to follow therapeutic response to anti-inflammatory agents. Progressive increases correlate with increases of inflammation/injury
ANA-Antinuclear Antibodies, is used to help diagnose systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and drug-induced lupus, but may also be positive in cases of scleroderma, Sjogren's syndrome, Reynaud's disease, juvenile chronic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, and many other autoimmune and non-autoimmune diseases. For this reason, SLE, which is commonly known as lupus, can be tricky to diagnose correctly. Because the ANA test result may be positive in a number of these other diseases, additional testing can help to establish a diagnosis of SLE. Your doctor may run other tests that are considered subsets of the general ANA test and that are used in conjunction with patient symptoms and clinical history to rule out a diagnosis of other autoimmune diseases.
Sedimentation Rate- Blood test used to screen for inflammation, cancer, and infection. A high sedimentation rate is found in wide varieties of inflammatory, infectious, and malignant diseases - the presence of an abnormality which needs further evaluation.
Creatine kinase (CK), also known as creatine phosphokinase (CPK), is an enzyme found in the heart, skeletal muscle, brain, and other tissues, which is released into the bloodstream when a muscle is damaged. Elevated CK levels generally indicate that there has been some damage to the heart or other muscle due to myocardial infarction (heart attack), rhabdomyolysis (rapid muscle tissue breakdown), myositis (inflammation of muscles), myopathies (muscular diseases) such as muscular dystrophy, and other conditions.
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.
Ferritin is a protein in the body that binds to iron, most iron stored in the body is bound to ferritin. It is found in the liver, skeletal muscles, spleen, and bone marrow. There is only a small amount of ferritin that is found in the blood, and the amount of ferritin in the blood shows how much iron is stored in your body.
Magnesium helps the body use and make and is needed to move potassium and sodium into and out of cells.
A test for magnesium is done in order to:
- Find a cause for nerve and muscle problems, such as irritability, muscle twitches, and muscle weakness.
- Find the cause of symptoms, such as low blood pressure, nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, vomiting, muscle weakness, and slurred speech.
- Find the cause of trouble breathing or heart problems, especially in people who have kidney disease.
- Find the cause of a low potassium or calcium level that is not improving with treatment.
- Look for changes in magnesium levels caused by medicines, including diuretics.
- Check if those with heart problems need extra magnesium. Low magnesium levels may increase the chances of life-threatening heart rhythm problems.
- Measure magnesium levels when it is being given for medical treatment.
Vitamin B12 - Ordered to help in diagnosing the cause of macrocytic anemia.
A deficiency can lead to macrocytic anemia (when the body produces fewer, but larger red blood cells) and neuropathy (nerve damage causing tingling and numbness in the hands and feet). Symptoms that suggest a Vitamin B12 deficiency include dizziness, weakness, fatigue, and/or a sore mouth or tongue, although these could be caused by other conditions as well.
Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy - 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 sometimes 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 also are used to determine effectiveness of treatment when vitamin D, phosphorus, calcium, and/or magnesium supplementation is prescribed.
TSH is a thyroid function test used to assist in the diagnosis of thyroid disorders, monitor thyroid replacement therapy in patients with hypothyroidism, diagnose and/or monitor female infertility problems, and occasionally the test is used to help evaluate pituitary gland function. While the test is most often used to help diagnose thyroid disorders in adults, expert opinions vary on the benefits of screening, and at what age to begin testing.
Urinalysis Compete with 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.
