Description

What is the purpose of this test?

The Wellness #2 Essential Blood Test Panel plus Vitamin D is a comprehensive blood test that helps to evaluate a patient's overall health status. This test measures various biomarkers in the blood, including cholesterol, blood glucose levels, kidney function, and liver enzymes. In addition to these tests, the panel also includes measuring Vitamin D levels, which is essential for good bone health and overall immune function.

 

By measuring these biomarkers, healthcare providers can better understand a patient's health and identify any potential issues that may need to be addressed. For instance, if the test results show elevated cholesterol levels, the patient may be at risk for heart disease and need to make dietary and lifestyle changes to reduce their risk. Similarly, suppose the test results show low Vitamin D levels. In that case, the patient may need to take supplements or increase their sun exposure to avoid health complications associated with Vitamin D deficiency. Overall, the Wellness #2 Essential Blood Test Panel plus Vitamin D is helpful for patients who want to take a proactive approach to their health. By identifying potential health issues early on, patients can make the necessary changes to improve their overall health and well-being.

 

The Wellness #2 Essential Blood Test Panel plus Vitamin D includes the following:

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) - measures levels of various substances in the blood, such as electrolytes, glucose, and proteins. The kidneys play a key role in regulating these substances, and abnormal levels can be an early sign of kidney disease or other conditions that affect the kidneys.

 

  • Glucose - 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 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 kidneys. 
    • 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 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.

 

Lipid Panel Blood Test with Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio - A Lipid Blood Test Panel measures the amount of lipids, or fats, in the blood. This test typically measures the cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which are lipids that can increase the risk for heart disease if they are too high. The results of this test can help the healthcare provider determine if you have any underlying conditions that may be affecting the lipid levels and can guide decisions about lifestyle changes or medication to help manage the lipid levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.

 

  • 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.

 

Thyroid Panel with Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) - The thyroid gland synthesizes and releases hormones that impact various metabolic processes. The hormones are iodine-containing amino acids, including T4 and T3. A comprehensive test is available to evaluate thyroid hormone levels, including T4, T3 Uptake, FTI/T7, and TSH.

 

Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential and Platelets - measures various components of the blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. An abnormal CBC result can indicate anemia, infection, inflammation, or other blood disorders affecting kidney function.

 

  • White Blood Cells (WBC) - The body's primary defense against disease and helps to fight infection.
  • Red Blood Cells (RBC) - Responsible for carrying oxygen and carbon dioxide away from all cells. Iron deficiency will lower the RBC count.
  • Hemoglobin - A chemical compound inside red cells that transports oxygen through the bloodstream to all body cells. Hemoglobin gives the red color to blood.
  • Hematocrit - Measures the amount of space red blood cells take up in the blood. It is reported as a percentage.
  • Neutrophils - Neutrophils are the most common type of white blood cells created by the bone marrow to combat various inflammatory and infectious diseases.
  • Lymphocytes - B-cells and T-cells are lymphocytes that fight bacteria and other pathogens in the blood. They are primarily found in the lymph system.
  • Monocytes - Working alongside neutrophils, monocytes play a vital role in fighting infections and other diseases and clearing away dead or damaged cells.
  • Eosinophils - White blood cells called eosinophils activate in response to allergies and certain infections.
  • Basophils - Basophils play a role in detecting infections early on, aiding in wound healing, and reacting to allergic responses.
  • Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) - The average hemoglobin concentration within a red blood cell.
  • Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) - A red blood cell's average hemoglobin concentration percentage.
  • Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) - The average size of red blood cells.
  • Platelets - Blood cell particles associated with the forming of blood clots.
  • Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) - Measures the amount of red blood cell variation in volume and size.
  • Absolute Neutrophils - The absolute neutrophil count measures the number of neutrophils in your blood. Normal range is 2,500-7,000 per microliter. Counts outside this range indicate a possible condition.
  • Absolute Lymphocytes - To calculate your absolute lymphocyte count, multiply your white blood cell count by the percentage of lymphocytes. This gives you the number of lymphocytes as an absolute number.
  • Absolute Monocytes - The absolute monocyte count indicates the number of monocytes in the blood, helping to identify if the count is normal, high, or low.
  • Absolute Eosinophils - Absolute eosinophil count measures the number of eosinophils in blood by multiplying the percentage of eosinophils in a complete blood count with the total number of white blood cells in the same count.
  • Absolute Basophils - Absolute basophil count is calculated by multiplying the percentage of basophils by the total number of white blood cells in a blood sample.

 

Vitamin D - A vitamin D test is used to detect bone malformation, bone weakness, or abnormal metabolism of calcium, which can occur due to a deficiency or excess of vitamin D. Individuals with diseases that hinder fat absorption, like cystic fibrosis and Crohn's disease, may be monitored with this test to ensure adequate amounts of vitamin D. The effectiveness of treatment involving vitamin D, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium supplementation can also be determined with this test.
