Fitness #1 Baseline Blood Test Panel
The Fitness #1 Baseline Blood Test Panel includes a Lipid Profile, Complete Blood Count (CBC), Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14), Total Testosterone, C-Reactive Protein- High Sensitivity Cardiac (CRP ,hs).
Athletic fitness is a new sports discipline that combines different elements of strength, endurance and a well balanced physique. Athletic fitness was first introduced in Sweden where it has become very popular and has been practiced for several years. The most recent large-scale athletic fitness competition was conducted during the World Classic Bodybuilding Championship in Tallinn.
This Fitness Profile was designed as a supplement to physical training since knowing your numbers is a mandate to achieve optimal fitness. The Athletic Fitness #1 Baseline Profile includes the following:
The Lipid Profile is used to help determine heart disease risk and to help decide treatment if you are borderline or high risk. The results of the lipid profile and other known risk factors of heart disease are considered to develop treatment and follow-up. Depending on your results and other risk factors, treatment options may involve diet and exercise changes or lipid-lowering medications such as statins. Test Includes: Cholesterol, HDL (the "good" cholesterol), LDL (the "bad" cholesterol), VLDL, Triglycerides, and the Ratio of Good cholesterol to total.
Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential and Platelets: A 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).
CMP-14 - The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel 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 (CRP) Blood Test, High Sensitivity (Cardiac Risk Assessment): Measures the amount of C-reactive protein in your blood. C-reactive protein measures general levels of inflammation in your body, high levels of CRP are caused by infections and several long-term diseases. However, a CRP test cannot show where the inflammation is located or what is causing it, other tests will be needed to find the cause and location of the inflammation.
Testosterone Total: Testosterone levels may be helpful in men for the diagnosis of hypopituitarism, hypogonadism, Klinefelter syndrome, and impotence (low values). Testosterone levels may be requested in women to investigate the cause of anovulation, amenorrhea, hirsutism, virilization, masculinizing tumors of ovary, tumors of the adrenal cortices, and congenital adrenal hyperplasia (high values).
