Unsure of the lab tests to order?
Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (CMP)
A CMP gives your provider important information about the current status of your metabolism, including kidney and liver function, electrolyte, acid/base balance, and levels of blood glucose and blood proteins; to monitor known conditions, such as hypertension, and to monitor the use of medications to check for any kidney or liver related side effects.
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
A CBC is used to determine your overall health status. This test can detect a variety of diseases and conditions that affect blood cells, such as anemia, infection, inflammation, bleeding disorders or leukemia.
This profile measures the amount of cholesterol and fats (triglycerides) in the blood. Increased Cholesterol and Triglycerides levels in the blood can clog arteries, making you more likely to develop heart disease. This test can allow you to make early lifestyle changes that can lower cholesterol and triglycerides.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
A TSH test is used to help diagnose thyroid disorders before you have any symptoms. It is used to determine if your thyroid is underactive (hypothyroidism) or over active (hyperthyroidism). If untreated, a thyroid disorder can cause health issues.
When thyroid hormone (T3 and T4) levels increase in the blood, the pituitary gland produces less thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), causing the thyroid to produce less T3 and T4. Free thyroxine (Free T4) tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, usually after discovering that the TSH level is abnormal.
This test provides an average glucose level from over the last 3 months. This test aids in the diagnosis and monitoring of diabetes and prediabetes.
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
This test is used as a screening tool for Prostate Cancer in men. Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by the prostate, a small gland that sits below the bladder. The test detects the total amount of PSA in blood.
Vitamin D is a nutrient that is essential for healthy bones and teeth. This test is used to screen for or monitor bone disorders. It is also used to check vitamin D levels in people with chronic illnesses such as asthma, psoriasis, and certain autoimmune diseases.
NO appointment needed.
NO medical provider order needed.
NO insurance will be filed, this testing is on a cash/check basis only.
