Comprehensive Metabolic Profile Testing


FAQ

  1. What is a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP)?

    A comprehensive metabolic blood panel (CMP) is a blood test that provides information about your body's metabolism; it measures the levels of:

    • Albumin
    • Bilirubin
    • BUN
    • Carbon Dioxide
    • Creatinine
    • Calcium
    • Electrolytes
    • Glucose
    • Kidney enzymes
    • Liver enzymes
    • Total protein
    • Urea Nitrogen
  2. What can a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) detect?

    A comprehensive metabolic panel is designed to assess the function of several basic systems in your body, including:

    • Kidney and liver function
    • Electrolytes (like sodium, potassium, calcium and chloride)
    • Fluid balance
    • Blood sugar levels

    Therefore, it can detect different diseases:

    • Kidney and liver disease
    • Diabetes
    • Renal failure
    • Heart disease
  3. When should you get a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP)?

    A comprehensive metabolic panel can serve as a “general health” check-up and help you detect any potential health problems early. It is recommended whenever you have a medical condition or as part of your yearly check-ups.

  4. Who may need a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP)?

    A comprehensive metabolic panel is one of the most common tests performed on patients during routine check-ups. It is useful for following up on patient progress for kidney- or liver-related issues and signaling other overall health problems.

  5. What should I expect from my comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP)?

    A blood sample is drawn for a comprehensive metabolic panel, which will be analyzed at the lab to help understand the function of several basic systems in your body. It tests for:

    • Blood glucose - which is a type of sugar used for energy by organs, tissues, and muscles
    • Electrolytes (salts and minerals) - which help maintain proper fluid balance throughout the body
    • Liver function - which aids the production of vitamins and other substances and controls the amount of blood glucose, protein, and fat
    • Kidney function - which aids in waste filtration and digestion and keeps a proper balance of water and electrolytes in the blood
  6. What is creatine kinase and why is it important?

    Creatine kinase (CK) is a natural enzyme that measures heart, brain, and muscle damage. The body releases this enzyme during strenuous exercise or other intense physical strain. Elevated levels of CK can be related to:

    • Heart disease
    • Epileptic seizures
    • Aneurysms
    • Other types of brain bleeds
  7. What is eGFR and why is it important?

    eGFR stands for Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate and is the most commonly used indicator of kidney function. The kidney is responsible for filtering approximately 180 liters of blood daily, separating the fluid from waste products, which are then excreted. eGFR measures how well your kidneys are doing that job.

  8. Do I need to visit a doctor?

    No doctor visit needed.

  9. How do I get my results?

    You get your results via email as soon as they are available.

The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (includes eGFR) measures your blood sugar level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. The Creatine Kinase (CK) test is usually ordered to measure levels of CK in the bloodstream which, when elevated, may indicate a person has suffered a heart attack and has suffered muscle damage to the heart.

Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.
Comprehensive Metabolic Profile ( includes eGFR ): Albumin, Albumin/Globulin Ratio (calculated), Alkaline Phosphatase, ALT, AST, BUN/Creatinine Ratio (calculated), Calcium, Carbon Dioxide, Chloride, Creatinine with GFR Estimated, Globulin (calculated), Glucose, Potassium, Sodium, Total Bilirubin, Total Protein, Urea Nitrogen
Creatine Kinase (CK), Total, Serum

Patient should fast for 12 hours preceding collection of specimen. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverage other than water for at least 12 hours before testing. Estimated turnaround for results is 3 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.

What is a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel?

A Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) is a series of blood tests designed to provide a clear understanding of both kidney and liver function, diabetic and parathyroid status, and a patient’s balance of electrolytes and other fluids. It is essentially an expanded form of a basic metabolic panel (BMP), which does not include testing on liver function. The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel is often ordered as part of a routine physical examination, though it can also be utilized as a method of monitoring patients with chronic disease.

Who May Need a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel?

Comprehensive Metabolic Panels are useful for the diagnosis of universal diseases and deficiencies in the human body, making it one of the most common tests performed on patients during routine checkups. It is also useful for following up on patient progress after various therapeutic applications. They typically are utilized as a means of checking for kidney- or liver-related issues, though they can also signal other problems in the overall health of an individual.

What Should I Expect from My Comprehensive Metabolic Panel?

Your Comprehensive Metabolic Panel is taken through a blood sample and can help a physician determine if there are any reasons for concern regarding your health, including kidney or liver function. It tests a patient for abnormalities in glucose, a type of sugar used for energy; electrolytes, which keep a body’s fluids balanced and maintain internal operation; kidney function, which keep a proper balance of water, salts and minerals in the blood, as well as filtering waste and other substances; and liver function, which aids in digestion, produces some vitamins and other desirable substances, and controls the amount of glucose, protein, and fat in an individual’s blood, while also helping to maintain a person’s immune system.
