Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (CMP)

Smart Metabolic Panel

$33.00

Your metabolism holds the key to your health.

Your metabolism influences more than just the numbers on the scale. It is the life force of all your body’s energy, turning what you eat into the fuel to support vital functions including heart rate, brain function, and breathing. As a result, your metabolism can reveal how the pieces involved are working to support your body’s needs.

A comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) measures 14 components found in your blood (including sugars, minerals, electrolytes, enzymes, and waste products) that contribute to your overall health and provide information on the functioning status of your metabolism, liver, and kidneys. When reviewed by your doctor along with other tests and information from a clinical examination, a CMP can be useful in detecting certain conditions including diabetes, kidney disease, and hypertension.

SAMPLE TYPE
Blood

Whats included?

x.2

Albumin

The main protein that circulates in the blood, which provides tissue nourishment, carries substances (such as hormones and drugs) in the blood, and helps keep fluids within the blood vessels.

x.2

Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST)

An enzyme found in the cells throughout the body but mostly in the cells of the heart and liver.

x.2

Calcium

A mineral essential to bone and muscle health.

x.2

Creatinine

The main protein that circulates in the blood, which provides tissue nourishment, carries substances (such as hormones and drugs) in the blood, and helps keep fluids within the blood vessels.

x.2

Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN)

A protein waste product removed from the blood by the kidneys.

a.2

Thyroid- T3 Free

A free total triiodothyronine (free T3 or total T3) test is used to assess thyroid function. It is ordered primarily to help diagnose hyperthyroidism.

x.2

Alkaline Phosphatase (ALKP)

An enzyme found in the cells of the liver and other tissue.

x.2

Bilirubin

A waste product produced by the liver as it breaks down red blood cells.

x.2

Glucose

An enzyme found in the cells of the liver and other tissue.

x.2

Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

A waste product created by the body’s metabolism that helps maintain the body’s acid-base balance (pH) in the form of the electrolyte bicarbonate.

x.2

Total Protein

The total amount of proteins (including albumin) found in the blood that helps determine overall nutritional status.

x.2

Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT)

An enzyme found mostly in the cells of the liver and kidney.

x.2

Chloride

An electrically charged mineral (electrolyte) that helps regulate fluid and acid-base balance within the body.

x.2

Potassium

An electrically charged mineral (electrolyte) vital to a cell’s ability to take in nutrients and remove waste; it is also essential for muscle function and regulating fluid balance.

x.2

Sodium

An electrically charged mineral (electrolyte) necessary for healthy muscle and nerve function that also helps maintain fluid balance.
