PPP Wellness #1 Blood Test Panel
The PPP Wellness #1 Blood Test Panel includes Lipid Panel, CMP-14, Hemoglobin A1C, Homocysteine, CRP, TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Vitamin D-25, Testosterone total, Estradiol, and Insulin Fasting.
The PPP Wellness #1 Blood Test Panel includes:
- Cholesterol, Total - A measurement used to assess heart health. Cholesterol is required by your body to build healthy cells, but high cholesterol levels can increase your risk of heart disease.
- Triglycerides - Surplus fats that are transported in the bloodstream are also responsible for providing energy to the body.
- HDL Cholesterol - High-density lipoproteins, or "good" cholesterol, take cholesterol away from the cells and transport it back to the liver for removal or processing.
- LDL Cholesterol - Low-density lipoproteins (calculation), or "bad" cholesterol, contain the highest percentage of cholesterol and are responsible for depositing cholesterol on the artery walls.
- VLDL Cholesterol - (VLDL included in LabCorp Only) contains the highest amount of triglycerides. VLDL is a type of "bad cholesterol" because it helps cholesterol build up on the walls of arteries. VLDL included in LabCorp Only
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.
- Evaluate glucose levels in the blood over the last 2 to 3 months.
- It helps diagnose vitamin B6 and B12 deficiency and a folate deficiency.
High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP):
- Assesses the risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH):
- Assists in diagnosing and monitoring thyroid disorders, hypothyroidism, and female infertility problems. It is occasionally used to help evaluate pituitary gland function.
- Measures the blood's free, unbound triiodothyronine levels to screen for thyroid disorders.
- It may be indicated when binding globulin (TBG) problems are perceived or when conventional test results appear inconsistent with clinical observations. It is normal in those with high thyroxine-binding globulin hormone binding who are euthyroid (i.e., free thyroxin should be normal in nonthyroidal diseases). It should also be normal in familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia.
Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy:
- Measures vitamin D levels to screen for a deficiency. 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.
- Measures total testosterone hormone levels in the blood to detect an abnormal level or hormone imbalance.
- Measures the E2 hormone levels in the blood to detect an abnormal level or hormone imbalance.
- Used in diagnosing and the therapy of various disorders of carbohydrate metabolism, including diabetes mellitus and hypoglycemia.
