The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) provides important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. The CMP is used as a basic check for diabetes, liver or kidney disease and hypertension. The test includes: Alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT); albumin:globulin (A:G) ratio; albumin, alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase (AST/SGOT); bilirubin, total; BUN; BUN:creatinine ratio; calcium, carbon dioxide, total; chloride, creatinine, globulin, total; glucose, potassium, protein, total, sodium. Turnaround time for the CMP is typically 1 business day.
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel requires fasting for 9 - 12 hours prior to going in for blood collection.
