Are Your Organs Healthy? Check Your Comprehensive CMP Blood Test
It includes a blood sugar, potassium level, liver and kidney organ function. This medical test is a screening panel of 14 health tests that look at your metabolism. Your body gets energy from food through a process called metabolism. The lab tests in this panel help see how well your liver and kidneys are working, which are the two major organs involved in metabolism. These medical tests also measure your electrolyte and acid/base balance, your blood sugar, and your blood proteins. Electrolytes are mineral salts that help move nutrients into your cells and move waste products out of your cells. Electrolytes also help maintain your body's fluid and pH, or acidity, levels.
The 14 blood tests that are included are:
- Albumin, a liver protein
- Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)
- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide, an electrolyte
- Chloride, an electrolyte
- Potassium, an electrolyte
- Sodium, an electrolyte
- Total bilirubin
- Total protein
What other blood tests might I have along with this health test?
You may also order other blood tests to check for iron deficiency, anemia, and other disorders:
- Complete blood count, or CBC
- Serum iron level
What do my lab test results mean?
Many things may affect your lab test results. These include the method each lab uses to do the blood test. Even if your medical test results are different from the normal value, you may not have a problem. To learn what the results mean for you, talk with your health care provider.
If your lab results are abnormal or combinations of abnormal levels, it may mean you have problem, such as diabetes, liver disease, or kidney disease. You may need more medical tests to confirm or rule out specific diagnoses.
Why do I need this test?
You may have this health test as part of a routine physical. You may also have this lab test done to check for kidney and liver diseases, as well as problems caused by diabetes.
If you take medicines for high blood pressure, or other medicines that can affect your kidneys or liver, you may also have this medical test done to check your kidney and liver function.
If you have unexplained symptoms or concerns for an illness, checking yourself for the presence or absence of a disease is only confirmed through a blood test.
