The Men's Panel Plus includes the following tests: CBC, CMP, Lipid Panel and Urinalysis, HS-CRP, Testosterone total, TSH, Vitamin D.
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)
A lipid panel is a test that measures fats and fatty substances used as a source of energy in the body. 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.
The lipid panel includes: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides.
PSA test or Prostate Specific Antigen Test screens the level of the PSA protein produced by the Prostate gland and is used as a marker for early detection of Prostate cancer and for an enlarged or inflamed prostate. High levels of PSA may indicate these conditions.
The PSA test is often recommended to be taken on a yearly basis for men over the age of 50 or earlier if there is a family history of prostate cancer.
When the PSA Test is high it is is highly recommended that you take the "PSA : Free and Total" test as a follow up.
Early detection is an important tool in getting appropriate and timely treatment.
Please consult with your Doctor or Urologist if your levels of PSA are elevated.
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.
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.
This test measures Testosterone hormone levels in the blood.
Testosterone is produced by the testicles and adrenal glands and is responsible for male physical traits, muscle mass. It is considered the primary sex hormone in men.
Low testosterone levels can lead to lower sex drive, erectile dysfunction, low energy, low muscle mass and memory loss.
Testosterone levels drop with age.
This testosterone test in for males only.
TSH Blood Test or Thyroid Function Blood Test measures the level of Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). The quantity of TSH has a direct impact on the levels of thyroid hormones causing either over-active thyroid or under-active thyroid regulating the thyroid gland is important because the thyroid produces several hormones which can stimulate or shut down certain processes in the body.
TSH Blood Test or Thyroid Function Blood Test helps detect hyperthyroidism whose symptoms may include: weight loss, rapid heart rate, nervousness, diarrhea, irregular menstrual periods and hypothyroidism whose symptoms are: weight gain, dry skin, constipation, tiredness, frequent menstrual periods.
Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Test measures the amount of vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and phosphate. Concentrations of Vitamin D provide a picture of renal health, also a deficiency of vitamin D can lead to bone weakness, bad teeth, increased risk of a heart attack, cancer, respiratory disorders and immune system dysfunction.
The body gets vitamin D from the skin (through exposure to the sun) and from certain foods and supplements.
