PPP Wellness #3 Blood Test Panel
The PPP Wellness #3 Blood Test Panel includes Lipid Panel, CMP-14, Hemoglobin A1C, Homocysteine, CRP, TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Vitamin D-25, Testosterone total, Estradiol, Insulin Fasting, NMR LipoProfile, DHEA Sulfate, and IGF-1.
The PPP Wellness #3 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: Very low-density lipoproteins, (calculation), or "bad" cholesterol, contain the highest percentage of triglycerides, it helps cholesterol build up on the walls of arteries.
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 to clot and adequately comprises infection-fighting antibodies.
- Albumin/Globulin Ratio: Calculated by dividing the albumin by globulin. When paired with other test results, this ratio can assist in the diagnosis of a variety of 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.
Hemoglobin A1c: Evaluates glucose levels in the blood over the last 2 to 3 months.
Homocysteine: Helps diagnose vitamin B6 and B12 deficiency, as well as a folate deficiency.
High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP): Assess 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.
Free T3: Measures the free, unbound levels of triiodothyronine in the blood to screen for thyroid disorders.
Free T4: 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.
Testosterone Total: Measures total testosterone hormone levels in the blood to detect an abnormal level or hormone imbalance.
Estradiol (E2): Measures the E2 hormone levels in the blood to detect an abnormal level or hormone imbalance.
Insulin Fasting: Used in diagnosing and the therapy of various disorders of carbohydrate metabolism, including diabetes mellitus and hypoglycemia.
NMR LipoProfile: An advanced cardiovascular diagnostic test that uses nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to provide a rapid, simultaneous, and direct measurement of LDL particle number and size of LDL particles and a direct measure of HDL and VLDL subclasses.
Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate (DHEA-S): Helps identify the source of excessive androgen hormones.
Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF-1): Helps diagnose the cause of growth abnormalities and evaluates pituitary gland function.
