Also called a chemistry panel, the Basic Health Screening, consists of a CMP, CBC, and urinalysis, and is designed to assess the functionality of your major organs, including your heart, kidneys, and liver as well as your bones, muscles, and nerves. A CMP, which stands for Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, is actually a series of 14 specific tests that display information about your pH balance, electrolyte levels, blood sugars, and blood proteins, as well as the functionality of your kidneys and liver. CBC stands for Complete Blood Count to check for diseases such as anemia or various infections. Like the CMP, it is actually a panel of tests that check for things such as your red and white blood cell counts, platelet numbers, hemoglobin levels, and various other factors. A urinalysis is useful to check for diabetes and urinary tract infections. It gives accurate measurements of things such as your glucose and ketone levels.
The ALT test helps to diagnose liver disease. Alanine aminotransferase, or ALT levels should be low. High ALT is a potential indicator of a liver injury, damage or disease. This test is the most accurate among the panel of liver tests.
The Glycohemoglobin Total (GHB) test measures glucose levels attached to hemoglobin in the blood. This test is most often used to check for diabetes or prediabetes. A glycohemoglobin level of 7.3% or less is considered healthy. For diabetics, a glycohemoglobin level below 9% is considered normal.
The Lipid Profile test and C-Reactive Protein test are both powerful heart assessments. A lipid profile is comprised of four tests that help to determine your risk level for coronary heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes. Included in a lipid profile are tests for total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), and triglycerides. The high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein test measures the amount of inflammation in your body. High levels of C-reactive protein could be an indication of an infection or other serious disease such as heart disease.
Includes a Thyroid Profile test as well as a TSH blood test. A thyroid profile helps to identify the causes of metabolism issues, fatigue, and a general feeling of poor health. The three most common thyroid problems are hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and thyroid cancer. The TSH, or Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone blood test checks overall thyroid gland function.
This powerful screening helps to identify possible indicators for cancers that typically affect females, such as breast, intestinal, liver, ovarian, and pancreatic cancer. The CEA test stands for carcinoembryonic antigen. This is a glycoprotein that occurs during fetal development but that should not be found in adults. Its presence is a possible indicator of cancer. A similar test is the AFP, or alpha-fetoprotein test. AFP likewise should not be present in the blood of a healthy adult. Pregnant woman may have low levels of AFP. The panel of CA tests each search out specific cancer antigens. The CA 125 test looks for CA 125, which is a cancer antigen that can serve as an indicator of ovarian cancer. Similarly, the CA 27.29 test is used in much the same way to identify signs of breast cancer, and the CA 19-9 seeks out signs of pancreatic cancer.
includes a Total Estrogen
test to monitor cardiovascular risk, bone density / health, and menopausal symptoms. A FSH
, or follicle-stimulating hormone test looks at any menstrual, gonadal, or pituitary disorders as well as infertility issues.
All of the diagnostic tests can be used reliably to monitor overall health and check for any symptoms or potential warning signs for a variety of diseases and health concerns that affect females.
