Individual Test Information
- CBC – Counts and evaluates the health of the three types of cells found in the blood (red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets).
- CMP – Measures substances like proteins and enzymes in the blood to analyze how well the body’s metabolic process is working.
- CRP – CRP is a protein made in the liver. The level of CRP increases when inflammation is present in the body. CRP testing can also be useful in identifying patients who may benefit from changes to their daily routine to lower their risk of cardiovascular disease.
- Estradiol – Estradiol is a female sex hormone that is involved in the development and maintenance of the female reproductive system. This test checks estradiol levels to monitor how well a females reproductive system is working.
- HbA1c – This non-fasting test indicates how well you have controlled your diabetes over the last several months. While the HbA1c is the standard tool to determine blood sugar control for patients with diabetes, it is not a substitute for daily, routine blood glucose testing.
- Iron – Measures iron levels, which is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells.
- Lipid Panel – Measures lipids and cholesterol levels in the blood to evaluate the risk of developing heart disease.
- TSH – TSH is produced by the pituitary glad. This test measures the levels of TSH in the blood to determine if hormone levels are too low or too high.
- Urinalysis – Tests urine for abnormal substance, like certain proteins and glucose to catch early signs of conditions like diabetes.
