Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (14)

[CMP] Fasting recommended (see description for details). Similar to the Basic Metabolic Panel (8), this is a blood test that checks several substances in the blood, including glucose (blood sugar), electrolytes, and markers of kidney function. However, the Comprehensive panel also looks at markers of liver function. It is also one of the most commonly ordered tests.

Please note some items tested on the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel are also tested via: the Basic Metabolic Panel (8), Electrolyte Panel, Renal  Panel (10) and Hepatic Function Panel (7) (see description on individual product pages for more information to avoid redundant test ordering).

Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential/Platelet

[CBC] The complete blood count (CBC) is a test that quantifies various cells in the blood such as: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. This test is often used in a variety of ways, such as detecting various immune activity, response to specific treatments, or to help diagnose some blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma.

Cortisol

Insulin

Fasting recommended (see description for details). A test that measures levels of insulin in the blood, a hormone secreted by the pancreas which is involved in glucose regulation.

Testosterone, Serum

Ferritin, Serum

This test measures the amount of a blood protein called ferritin, which stores iron. Low Ferritin can be an indicator of iron deficiency and possibly anemia. High Ferritin can by symptomatic of many diseases such as Hemochromatosis, Porphyria, and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

GlycA

A test that integrates the protein levels and glycosylation states of several of the most abundant acute-phase proteins in serum allowing for a more stable measure of systemic inflammation. Sometimes used to aid in the identification and stratification of individuals at risk for future cardiovascular disease.

C-Reactive Protein, Cardiac

[CRP, hsCRP] Also known as hs-CRP or High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein. C-Reactive Protein is a protein made by the liver. Levels of CRP are typically associated with inflammation in the body. It is often used to detect risk in both acute and chronic conditions involving an inflammatory response.

Uric Acid, Serum

γ-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT)

[GGT] Fasting recommended (see description for details). A test that measures levels of GGT in the blood, a biliary enzyme. Sometimes used to evaluate, e.g. pancreatitis, alcoholic fatty liver disease, etc.

Vitamin B12 and Folate

Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy

The 25-OH vitamin D test is commonly used to detect vitamin D deficiency. It can be an important indicator of osteoporosis (bone weakness) and rickets (bone malformation).

Creatine Kinase (CK), Total

DHEA-Sulfate

Hemoglobin A1c

[hbA1C, A1C] – A measure of average blood glucose (or blood sugar) levels averaged over the last 2 to 3 months. Medical professionals often use this test in combination with others to diagnose risk of diabetes.

Homocyst(e)ine, Plasma

Fasting preferred (see description for details). Homocysteine, is typically measured in those who may be at risk for heart disease and stroke.

Sex Hormone-binding Globulin

Triiodothyronine, Free, Serum

Reverse T3, Serum

Thyroxine (T4)

A test that measures levels of thyroxine, also known as T4, in the blood. Typically used to evaluate hyper- or hypothyroidism. It is recommended to stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.

TSH

Thyroid Antibodies

Lipid Panel

The Lipid Panel measures both cholesterol (total, LDL, and HDL) and fat (triglycerides) in the blood. These four metrics are commonly used as risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Please note this test measures the same items as: the lipid panel with Total Cholesterol:HDL ratio, or lipid panel with LDL:HDL ratio, with the only difference being no ratio calculation is reported with the results (instead of Total Cholesterol:HDL Ratio, or LDL:HDL ratio respectively).
