Female Wellness Panel
About Our Standard Female Wellness Panel
The Standard Female Wellness Panel evaluates the overall health of women to get a broad scope of various body systems and how they are functioning and performing.
This panel includes measuring and evaluating the following 8 tests:
- Lipid Panel
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
- Urinalysis, Routine With Microscopic Examination on Positives
- Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential
- Thyroid Profile With TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone)
- Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT)
- Hemoglobin A1c (Glycohemoglobin)
- C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
The Standard Female Wellness Panel provides a thorough analysis of the following:
- Glucose levels
The Lipid Panel is used to measure overall cholesterol levels in the body. Lipids are various forms of fat in the body and include cholesterol types. Higher levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, also known as "bad cholesterol") are associated with increased risk of heart attack.
LDL leads to atherosclerosis, a hardening of the veins that leads to plaque build-up and heart attacks.
This lipid panel measures levels of:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL - "Good Cholesterol"
- LDL - "Bad Cholesterol"
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) measures blood sugar (glucose) levels, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function.
The 14 measurements included in the CMP help to provide a look at the overall health of the body and its metabolism and chemical balance, and can help diagnose certain conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease and hypertension. The CMP aids in determining how the liver and kidneys are functioning and where glucose, calcium, protein, sodium, potassium, and chloride levels stand.
The CMP blood test panel measures levels of:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide (Bicarbonate)
- Total bilirubin
- Total protein
- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)
- Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
Our Urinalysis with macro and microscopic examination is a 12-panel test that examines a urine sample and analyzes numerous levels and elements within the urine including:
- The urine sample's color
- Specific gravity
- Protein levels
- Occult blood
- Leukocyte esterase
A urinalysis is important in accessing the chemical constituents in the urine and the relationship to various disease states. Microscopic examination helps to detect the presence of abnormal urine cells and formed elements. A urinalysis can detect abnormalities of urine; help diagnose and manage renal diseases, urinary tract infection, urinary tract neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases adjacent to the urinary tract.
The Complete Blood Count (CBC) with differential and platelets test helps to give an overall view of general health and screens for a broad scope of diseases and conditions. This test includes testing for 10 kinds of cells and cell molecules in the blood:
- Hematocrit - The amount of red blood cells in the blood.
- Hemoglobin - A protein that transports oxygen or carbon dioxide in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) - Measures the average volume of red blood cells in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) - The amount of hemoglobin per red blood cell.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) - The amount of hemoglobin concentrated in a given volume of red blood cells.
- Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) - Measures the difference of red blood cell size or volume in blood sample.
- Percentage and Absolute Differential Counts - Measures the amounts of different white blood cell types within the blood.
- Platelet Count - Measures the amount of platelets (fragments and particles of cells) in the blood that are crucial for blood clotting.
- Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) - Measures the amounts of red blood cells in the blood. Red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body.
- White Blood Cell Count (WBC) - Measures the amount of white blood cells in the blood. White blood cells defend the body against infections and foreign bodies.
Our Thyroid Test Panel with TSH includes measuring the following:
- 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.
The Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) test, measures ALT, an enzyme in the blood, to help determine liver disease or damage.
The Hemoglobin A1c (glycohemoglobin or glycated hemoglobin) test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the past 8-12 weeks.
The C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test is used to detect inflammation. CRP is a protein created by the liver. Increased C-reactive protein (CRP) levels are found in inflammatory conditions including: Bacterial infection, rheumatic fever, active arthritis, myocardial infarction, malignancies and in the post-operative state.
|Fasting Instructions:||Since this panel includes the lipid panel and a blood glucose test in the CMP, patients should fast 9-12 hours prior to collection.|
