This profile offers an array of tests to give you a basic overview of your health
Complete Metabolic Panel (14)
CBC with differential
Liver Function Panel (7)
Urinalysis with Microscopic
Prostate-specific Antigen (PSA),Free:Total Ratio
The Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (14) is a frequently ordered panel that gives your doctor important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. The Complete Urinalysis Profile screens for a variety of conditions including urinary bladder disease, kidney disease and diabetes.
The Complete Blood Count with Differential (CBC) screens for blood abnormalities including red and white blood cells and platelets. The CBC is used as a screening test to check for possible disorders such as anemia, infection, and many other diseases.
The Lipid profile is a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary heart disease. The tests that make up a lipid profile are tests that have been shown to be good indicators of whether someone is likely to have a heart attack or stroke caused by blockage of blood vessels (hardening of the arteries).
The Liver Function Profile is used to assess the function and dysfunction of the Liver. Tests include Alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT), Albumin, Alkaline phosphatase , Aspartate aminotransferase (AST/SGOT), Bilirubin, direct, Bilirubin, total , Protein, total
The Renal Function Profile is used in the diagnosis and management of illnesses and injuries causing changes in renal function. Patient Preparation: Patient should fast for 12 hours preceding collection of specimen.
The Urinalysis with Microscopic test is performed to detect the presence of some possible substances in the blood in order to give a first alert for many possible problems. For example to screen for metabolic and kidney disorders and for urinary tract infections. This test is done during a routine physical or when there are symptoms of a urinary tract infection, such as abdominal pain, back pain, frequent or painful urination, or blood in the urine. Also as part of a pregnancy checkup, a hospital admission, or a pre-surgical work-up.
The measurement of the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) level in blood is a screening mechanism for asymptomatic and symptomatic men for prostate cancer in order to help determine the necessity for a biopsy of the prostate and also in order to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for prostate cancer, or to detect recurrence of prostate cancer. This test was developed as a tumor marker to screen for and to monitor prostate cancer. It is a very good tool, but not a perfect one. PSA levels are higher in those of African American heritage, and levels tend to increase in all men as they age.
Reference range values : <= 4.0 mcg/L or could be interpreted as <= 4.0 ng/ml
Abnormal findings: Patients with PSA level greater than 10mcg/L are at an increased risk for prostate cancer. Levels between 4 and 10 may indicate prostate cancer BPH, or prostatitis. These conditions are more common in the elderly, as is a general increase in PSA levels.
