Comprehensive Health Panel
About Our Comprehensive Health Test Panel (CBC+CMP+UA+LP+Iron+TSH)
The Comprehensive Health Blood Test Panel is a combination of 6 common, in-depth health test panels that measure and evaluate the body as a whole.
Our Comprehensive Health Test Panel includes the following tests:
- Lipid Panel - Measures cholesterol levels
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) - Measures 14 different components
- Routine Comprehensive Urinalysis With Microscopic Examination on Positives
- Iron and Total Iron-binding Capacity (TIBC)
- Thyroid Panel with TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
- Complete Blood Count (CBC) with Differential
The Comprehensive Health Test Panel covers a broad scope, including functions of the:
- Circulatory System
Fasting is required for the blood glucose test that is included in the CMP. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverages other than water for at least 8 hours before testing.
LP (lipid panel)
Our lipid/cholesterol panel looks at the overall levels of cholesterol in the body. Lipids are forms of fat within the body, and they include cholesterol types.
The Lipid Panel measures:
- LDL - "Bad Cholesterol"
- HDL - "Good Cholesterol”
- Total Cholesterol
Bad Cholesterol, or high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), are normally associated with a heightened risk of heart attack. LDL will cause your veins to harden, and lead to a plaque build up, then eventually a heart attack. This is called atherosclerosis.
Knowing your cholesterol type is instrumental in knowing your risk of having a heart attack.
CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel)
A CMP test looks at the status of your metabolism including the kidneys, the liver, the electrolyte balance, and the acid/base balance, along with levels of blood glucose and blood proteins.
This test can look for conditions like hypertension, diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease. It also can be used to monitor the liver and kidneys for potential medication side effects.
Our CMP measures 14 different blood components:
- (ALT) Alanine aminotransferase
- (ALP) Alkaline phosphatase
- (AST) Aspartate aminotransferase
- (BUN) Blood urea nitrogen
- Carbon dioxide (Bicarbonate)
- Total Protein
- Total Bilirubin
Our urinalysis is administered with a macro and microscopic examination to perform a more in-depth look for abnormal urine cells and formed elements. Additionally, factors such as urine color, weight, PH levels, protein, glucose, ketones, occult blood, nitrite, leukocyte esterase, urobilinogen, and bilirubin levels are all analyzed and evaluated.
A urinalysis is often used to diagnose urine abnormalities, urinary tract infections or neoplasms, systematic disease, or inflammatory diseases that relate to the urine tract. It can also be used to diagnose or monitor renal disease.
This test is a key component when looking at the chemical constituents in the urine, and it’s a relationship to various diseases.
Our Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) Test includes an Iron Test and is used to see if there is too much or too little iron in the blood. Iron moves through the blood attached to a protein called transferrin. The TIBC Test is often used to differentiate between anemia types and gives more iron statistics than the Iron Test alone.
Our Thyroid Test Panel with TSH includes:
- T3 uptake (Triiodothyronin)
- T4 (Thyroxine)
- T7 (Free-T4 Index)
- TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
The thyroid is an endocrine gland that not only controls metabolism, but also secrete hormones that are necessary for growth, development and nearly every physiological process in the body.
CBC (Complete Blood Count)
A CBC test is primarily used to look for anemia, leukemia, and infection. It can often diagnose or monitor a medical condition, or it is used to monitor medical treatment.
Symptoms like fatigue, weakness, skin discoloration, or irregular bleeding can sometimes be diagnosed with a CBC test.
Our CBC measures 10 different blood components:
- (RBC) Red Blood Cell Count
- (MCV) Mean Corpuscular Volume
- (RDW) Red Blood Cell Distribution Width
- (Hgb, Hb) Hemoglobin
- (MCHC) Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration
- (MCH) Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin
- (WBC) White Blood Cell Count
- Percentage and Absolute Differential Counts / White Blood Cell Differential
- Platelet Count
A CBC test usually is not definitive, meaning, it won’t give you all of the answers. This test is often looked at along with other blood tests for more conclusive results.
|Fasting Instructions:||Fasting is required for the lipid panel and the blood glucose test that is included in the CMP. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverages other than water for at least 12 hours before testing.|
