An electrolyte panel measures sodium, potassium, chloride, and bicarbonate to help detect electrolyte and fluid imbalances.
Basic and Comprehensive Metabolic Panels
We offer basic and comprehensive metabolic panels (Met B and Met C) that check for electrolyte abnormalities, organ function as the kidneys, and other metabolic abnormalities. The Met B panel includes an electrolyte panel, kidney function tests, glucose, and calcium.
A comprehensive metabolic panel (Met C) includes an electrolyte panel, kidney function tests, and liver function tests, glucose, and calcium. The Met C panel differs from Met B panel in that it includes tests for liver function.
Liver tests measure alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), aspartate transaminase (AST), bilirubin, albumin, and total protein.
The renal function panel contains tests such as albumin, creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, and a calcuated eGFR to assesses the overall function of the kidneys.
The lipid panel is used to assess a person's risk of developing cardiovascular disease or as a preventive measure to check any risks depending on factors like eating habits, diet, stress, exercise, and lifestyle-related. The standard lipid panel typically measures the total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides blood levels.
Our toxicology services evaluate for drugs of abuse including opioids and alcohol.
