This wellness panel gives a look into overall health as well as the health organs and systems like the thyroid, liver, kidneys, and immune system. It screens for vitamin and mineral deficiencies and hormone levels also.
This test measures the level of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in your blood. FSH is made by your pituitary gland, a small gland located underneath the brain. FSH plays an important role in sexual development and functioning.
In women, FSH helps control the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth of eggs in the ovaries. FSH levels in women change throughout the menstrual cycle, with the highest levels happening just before an egg is released by the ovary. This is known as ovulation.
A luteinizing hormone test measures how much luteinizing hormone a person has in their blood. This is a hormone with key roles in both male and female reproductive systems.
An estradiol test measures the amount of the hormone estradiol in your blood. It’s also called an E2 test.
Estradiol is a form of the hormone estrogen. It’s also called 17 beta-estradiol. The ovaries, breasts, and adrenal glands make estradiol. During pregnancy, the placenta also makes estradiol.
The A1C test is a common blood test used to diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes and to monitor how well you’re managing your diabetes.
A vitamin D test is used to screen for or monitor bone disorders. It is also sometimes used to check vitamin D levels in people with chronic illnesses such as asthma, psoriasis, and certain autoimmune diseases.
Used to help determine overall thyroid function by measuring levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. TSH stimulates the thyroid to produce thyroxine (T4) and ultimately triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones stimulate the metabolism of nearly every tissue in the body.
The CBC blood test panel measures levels of:
- Red blood cells
- White blood cells
Abnormal increases or decreases in cell counts as revealed in a complete blood count may indicate that you have an underlying medical condition that calls for further evaluation.
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) measures blood sugar (glucose) levels, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function.
The CMP blood test panel measures levels of:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide (Bicarbonate)
LDL helps cause atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries that leads to plaque build-up and heart attacks. This lipid panel measures levels of: Total Cholesterol, HDL – “Good Cholesterol”, LDL – “Bad Cholesterol”, and Triglycerides.
