What is the purpose of this test?

The Wellness Express Panel Blood Test Plus CBC, Thyroid & Ferritin is a comprehensive blood test that evaluates a patient's overall health and detects early signs of diseases or illnesses. This test comprises several assessments that measure different aspects of a patient's health, such as cholesterol and blood sugar levels, liver and kidney function, and more. The results of this test can help healthcare providers identify any potential health concerns and develop an appropriate treatment or prevention plan. This test is especially beneficial for patients with a family history of certain diseases or those who want to manage their health and well-being proactively. Overall, the Wellness #2 Essential Blood Test Panel provides valuable information and peace of mind to patients committed to staying on top of their health.

 

Lipid Blood Test Panel - 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 sterol in the blood. Knowing your cholesterol level may be as important as knowing your blood pressure. Elevated cholesterol levels are associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease.
  • Triglycerides - are fats in the blood that provide energy to the body's cells. Triglycerides should be less than 400 mg/dl even while in a non-fasting state.
  • HDL Cholesterol - (High-density lipoproteins) are believed to take cholesterol away from cells and transport it back to the liver for removal or processing. They are known as the "good" cholesterol, as people with high levels of HDL may have less heart disease. Conversely, low HDL could result from a lack of exercise and smoking.
  • LDL Cholesterol - Low-density lipoproteins contain the most significant percentage of cholesterol and may be responsible for depositing cholesterol on the artery walls. They are known as the "bad" cholesterol.
  • 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.
  • Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio - is calculated by dividing the total cholesterol by the HDL cholesterol. This is the ratio used by physicians in determining your relative risk for developing cardiovascular disease.

 

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) - A Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, or CMP, is a blood test that measures various substances in the blood, such as glucose, electrolytes, and proteins. It is usually done as part of a routine check-up or to monitor certain medical conditions. The results of a CMP can help doctors evaluate how well the liver, kidneys, and other organs are functioning, as well as detect any imbalances in the body's electrolyte and fluid levels.

 

  • 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.

 

  • Mineral and Bone
    • Iron, Total - An abnormally low test result could indicate anemia caused by iron deficiency.
    • 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.
    • Phosphorus (Phosphate) - A crucial mineral for energy production, muscle and nerve function, and bone formation. Most of the body's phosphorus mixes with calcium to form teeth and bones. Phosphorus is also important for keeping the body's acid-base balanced.

 

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.

 

Uric Acid - A uric acid test is a blood test that measures the amount of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is a waste product produced when the body breaks down purines, substances found in many foods and drinks. The test is used to diagnose and monitor conditions that can cause high uric acid levels in the blood, such as gout, kidney disease, and certain types of cancer. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatments for these conditions.

 

LD or LDH - An LDH test, or lactate dehydrogenase test, is a blood test that measures the level of LDH in the blood. LDH is an enzyme found in many body tissues, including the heart, liver, and muscles. The purpose of the LDH test is to help diagnose and monitor various medical conditions that can cause tissue damage or cell death, such as liver disease, heart attack, or cancer. The test may also be used to monitor the effectiveness of certain treatments or to check for recurrence of a medical condition.

 

GGT - The purpose of a GGT (gamma-glutamyl transferase) test is to measure the level of the enzyme GGT in the blood. GGT is mainly found in the liver and is involved in the metabolism of drugs and toxins. The test is often conducted as part of a liver function test to diagnose liver diseases, such as hepatitis, fatty liver disease, and cirrhosis. It can also be used to monitor the treatment progress for these conditions. In addition, the test may be used to detect excessive alcohol consumption, as GGT levels tend to be elevated in heavy drinkers.

 

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.

 

Free T3 - A Free T3 blood test is a diagnostic test used to determine the levels of triiodothyronine (T3) hormone in the blood. T3 is a hormone produced by the thyroid gland that plays an important role in regulating metabolism, growth, and development of the body. The test measures the amount of free T3, which is the active form of the hormone, in the bloodstream. This test is typically ordered to evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid disorders such as hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and thyroid nodules.

 

Free T4 - A Free T4 blood test is a common medical test used to measure the amount of the hormone thyroxine (T4) in the blood. A doctor usually orders the test to evaluate thyroid function and diagnose or monitor certain thyroid conditions, such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Free T4 is the form of T4 that is not bound to proteins in the blood and is considered the active form of the hormone. The test measures the level of free T4 in the blood, which can help doctors determine if the thyroid gland is producing too much or too little thyroid hormone.

 

Ferritin Serum Test - The purpose of a Ferritin serum test is to measure the level of ferritin in the blood. Ferritin is a protein that stores iron, so the test evaluates the body's iron stores. This test is often ordered when a patient is suspected to have iron deficiency anemia or iron overload. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for these conditions.
