A Chemistry Panel (SMAC 25) Blood test is an array of tests which are commonly utilized by physicians to determine the general health status of a patient. They test patients for several substances in their blood and can help physicians diagnose certain problems, also helping to determine whether treatments for specific health issues are working. Most chemistry screens test anywhere from 6 to 20 different substances; however, Private MD offers one of the most comprehensive chemistry panels available.
Chemistry Panels are typically prescribed by physicians as part of a routine workup on a patient, though they may be utilized on patients who have been undergoing various forms of therapy, or if a patient is experiencing symptoms which can be identified through the tests. A Chemistry Panel (SMAC 25) test can be useful in helping a physician determine if changes in lifestyle or meal plans are required by a patient, as well as to see if prior changes in these areas have been effective.
Chemistry Panel (SMAC 25) Blood tests begin with the patient having their blood drawn by a phlebotomist or physician’s assistant, who then gives the sample to a laboratory for analysis. It can help a physician determine if there are any reasons for concern regarding your health or lifestyle, and can be useful in the diagnosis of some conditions and disorders. Common reference ranges for results exist among the various tests in the panel, though some labs may have different ranges for you and your physician. Speak to your doctor regarding your results to get more information on how your results concern to you and your health specifically.
