Glucose: Glucose is a measure of the sugar level in your blood. Specific levels can indicate diabetes, or hypoglycemia.
Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN): BUN is a waste product produced in the liver and excreted by the kidneys. BUN levels (and the BUN / creatine ratio) assess kidney function.
Creatinine: Creatinine is a waste product primarily from muscle breakdown. Levels estimate the kidney filtration rate.
Glom Filtration Rate: A measure of how well the kidneys are filtering the blood.
Sodium: Sodium is an electrolyte that is regulated by the kidneys. Body fluid and electrolyte balance are important measures of kidney function.
Potassium: Potassium is an electrolyte that is controlled by the kidneys. It is critical for proper functioning of the nerves and muscles, particularly the heart.
Chloride: Chloride is another electrolyte that is involved in maintaining the proper balance of body fluids and the body's acid-base balance.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2): Changes in your CO2 level may suggest changes in the balance of your body's electrolytes, such as losing or retaining fluid. CO2 levels are also affected by kidney and lung function.
Calcium: Calcium is controlled in the blood by the glands and the kidneys. It is important for proper blood clotting, nerve, and cell activity.
Phosphorus: Phosphorus is regulated by the kidneys and high levels may indicate kidney disease.
Albumin: Albumin is a type of protein in your blood.
Globulin: Globulin is a type of protein that is important for fighting disease.
Albumin / Globulin Ratio: Calculated measure of the percentage of Albumin to Globulin.
Total Protein: The amount of total protein evaluates kidney functions and the albumin / globulin ratio are general indices of overall health and nutrition.
Total Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a pigment removed from the blood by the liver. Levels are used to evaluate liver and gallbladder function.
Alkaline Phosphatase: Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme found mainly in bones and the liver. Specific levels can indicate liver or bone disease.
AST (also called SGOT): AST/SGOT is also a liver and muscle enzyme. Specific levels may indicate problems with the liver, gallbladder, or pancreas.
ALT (also called SGPT): The ALT blood test measures the level of the enzyme alanine transaminase (ALT) in the blood . ALT is found primarily in the liver, but is also found in smaller amounts in the kidneys, heart, muscles, and pancreas. The ALT test checks how well your liver is working and evaluates its overall health. The ALT test was formerly called serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT).
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
White Blood Count: The total number of white blood cells per volume of whole blood. Abnormal levels may indicate infection, certain types of leukemia, or bone marrow diseases.
Red Blood Count: The total number of red blood cells per volume of whole blood.
Hemoglobin (Hgb): Hemoglobin is the amount of oxygen carrying protein contained within the red blood cells. Abnormal levels may indicate anemia, red blood cell breakdown, or vitamin deficiencies.
Hematocrit (Hct): Hematocrit is the percentage of the blood volume occupied by red blood cells. Levels evaluate anemia, bone marrow failure, and certain cancers.
A UA is an array of tests and one of the most proven methods of medical diagnosis. The urinalysis measures glucose, protein, blood, bilirubin, ketones, nitrates, leukocytes, sediment, bacteria, PH and specific gravity.
