Description:

 Complete Blood Count (CBC) and Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) Blood Test

The CBC & CMP package includes 2 of the most common general wellness lab tests.  Both tests include a number of measurements to help with evaluating multiple factors related to good health.

A Complete Blood Count (CBC) includes:

  • White Blood Cell Count (WBC) WBC's protect the body against infections.
  • Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) RBC's carry oxygen throughout the body.
  • Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) is the variation in size of the RBC's.
  • Hematocrit measures the percentage of blood made of up red blood cells.
  • Hemoglobin is a protein which carries oxygen in the blood.
  • Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) measures the average size of RBC's.
  • Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) measures the average amount of hemoglobin in a red blood cell.
  • Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) is the average percentage of hemoglobin in a red blood cell.
  • Platelet Count measures cell fragments which are vital for proper blood clotting.
  • Percentage and absolute differential count for types of WBC's including neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils.

A Comprehensive Metabolic Panel includes:

  • Glucose: Abnormal blood sugar levels can indicate a number of conditions including Diabetes.
  • BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen): Used to evaluate kidney function.
  • Creatinine: Used to Evaluate Kidney Function.
  • BUN/Creatinine Ratio: This measurement can indicate kidney disease or conditions such as dehydration or intestinal bleeding.
  • Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR): Used to screen for and detect early kidney damage.
  • Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Carbon Dioxide, Total: An improper electrolyte balance can indicate a number of conditions including dehydration, Addison's disease, kidney disease, and Diabetes.
  • Calcium: Normal levels are important for healthy bones, heart, nerves, kidneys, and teeth.
  • Protein, Total: Aids in measuring Liver and Kidney function as well as nutritional status.
  • Albumin: A protein important for healthy liver and kidney function.
  • Globulin: A protein that helps the body fight infection and the blood to clot properly.
  • Albumin/Globulin Ratio: Can help identify various liver problems when combined with other test results.
  • Bilirubin, Total: Helps to identify conditions such as anemia, sickle cell, hepatitis, cirrhosis, alcohol, and drug abuse.
  • Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP): Used to detect liver disease or bone disorders.
  • Aspartate Amino Transferase (AST): Used to evaluate liver function, very high levels often indicate Hepatitis
  • Alanine Amino Transferase (ALT): Used to help identify liver damage

These tests are typically ordered for routine lab testing and may aid in diagnosing a variety of conditions.  For a package which includes other general health tests please see our Basic Wellness Panel, Comprehensive Wellness Panel, or Ultimate Wellness Panel.

Turnaround is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel requires fasting for 9 - 12 hours prior to going in for blood collection.
