Lab Test On Demand's Health Panel Advance Test is a truly comprehensive health panel designed for a complete peace of mind.
The Health Panel Advance includes the following tests: CBC, CMP, Lipid Panel, Urinalysis, ESR, LDH, hs-CRP, Protein Total, and Albumin.
This test requires blood and urine samples
Preparation: Fasting is recommended 12 hours before the test.
CBC Test or Complete Blood Count With Differential is a test used to measure blood abnormalities, it is one of the most common tests used to monitor overall health status.
CBC measures certain blood cells such as Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells, and Platelets and seeks to explain a variety of conditions and/or diseases such as Anemia, Leukemia, and infections -among others- and check symptoms such as fatigue, weakness or bruising.
CMP Test or Comprehensive Metabolic Panel Blood Test is an initial broad screening tool used to evaluate organ function and electrolyte balance, it also aids in the determination of certain conditions such as diabetes, liver disease and kidney disease or for monitoring treatments related to liver and kidney.
CMP is usually ordered as part of a routine health check.
The CMP or Chem-14 includes tests for:
• Liver function (ALP, ALT, AST, Bilirubin)
• Kidney function (BUN, Creatinine)
• Electrolytes and fluid balance (Sodium, Potassium, Carbon Dioxide, Chloride)
• Proteins (Albumin, Total Protein)
• Blood Sugar (Glucose)
Lipid Panel Test measures fats and fatty substances which are used by your body as a source of energy. Lipids include cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Lipids are found in your blood and stored in tissues.
High cholesterol usually has no signs or symptoms so the test helps in the evaluation of heart disease and also monitors existing conditions, genetic diseases and the effectiveness of certain treatments.
Lipid Panel Test includes: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides.
The urinalysis test helps diagnose any urinary tract infections and other kidney conditions such as urinary bladder disease, kidney disease and diabetes.
UA is a common test that is done in 3 ways: visually, dipstick and microscopic and each check for different aspects, i.e.: change in color, acidity, concentration, protein, sugar, ketones, bilirubin, infection, occult blood, white and red blood cells, epithelial cells and others.
Sedimentation Rate Westergreen Test or ESR Test is recommended to evaluate certain inflammatory conditions, tissue destruction and certain non-specific infections, cancers and autoimmune diseases. ESR is also Known as Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate.
The ESR measures how quickly red blood cells sediment (fall to the bottom of a test tube), the faster the sediment the higher chance of inflammation.
The sedimentation rate helps confirm certain diagnosis like arteritis, polymyalgia, arthritis.
Since ESR cannot pinpoint the problem that is causing the inflammation it is usually ordered with other tests like C-reactive protein (CRP) test.
LDH Test measures the Level of Lactic Acid Dehydrogenase (LDH) in the blood.
The LDH test helps screen for muscle damage, certain inflammatory conditions and other tissue damage. When cells are damaged, LDH is released into the blood causing levels to rise.
High LDH levels could be caused by anemia, meningitis, mononucleosis, HIV, liver or kidney disease, some types of cancer, etc.
An LDH test is typically ordered along with a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) and since LDH test cannot identify where in the body the damage is, follow up testing is usually recommended.
HS-CRP or High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein test measures CRP Level in your blood, CRP is a protein that increases when there is inflammation in the body.
Because of its high sensitivity status this test can detect even mildly high levels of CRP associated with Atherosclerosis (narrowing or inflammation of the arteries of your heart) which can lead to heart disease and high blood pressure.
Protein Total and Albumin Test’s results interpretation can be used as a diagnostic aid for various disease states and protein-related abnormalities.
Studied proteins are albumin, alpha-1, alpha-2, beta-1, beta-2 and gamma. An elevation, decrease or visual change of these proteins can be used for diagnostic.
