Description

What is the purpose of this test?

The Wellness #1 Baseline Blood Test Panel is a comprehensive blood test that analyzes a patient's overall health. This test aims to identify any potential health problems or risks that may not be noticeable through physical examination alone. By analyzing different markers in the blood, such as cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, liver and kidney function, and more, healthcare providers can better understand a patient's overall health and identify any areas that may require further attention. 

 

By identifying potential health problems early on, patients can take proactive steps to prevent or manage them. This can help avoid more serious health issues and ultimately improve the patient's quality of life. Additionally, the comprehensive nature of the test means that patients can gain a more complete picture of their overall health, which can help them make more informed decisions about their lifestyle and healthcare choices. This panel is important for maintaining optimal health and preventing serious medical conditions.

 

The Wellness #1 Baseline Blood Test Panel includes the following:

Lipid Panel Blood Test with Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio:

  • 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 transported in the bloodstream and provide 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio - The Total Cholesterol to HDL Ratio is a critical indicator of the balance between good and bad cholesterol in the body. A ratio of less than 5:1 is considered optimal, while a ratio higher than 6:1 indicates an increased risk of developing heart disease.

 

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) with eGRF Blood Test:

  •  Glucose - Blood sugar level, the most direct test to screen for diabetes and 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 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 major proteins essential for the healthy function of the liver and kidney. 
    • Globulin, Total - One of the major proteins that assist the blood to clot properly and also comprises infection-fighting antibodies. 
    • Albumin/Globulin Ratio - Calculated by dividing 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 important 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 important for the normal function of muscles, nerves, and blood clotting.
