Metabolic Testing

Metabolic Testing-- Use of tests to indicate the particular metabolic needs of the individual. It can indicate nutritional needs and lifestyle changes.

A Basic Metobolic Panel

A basic metabolic panel combines multiple tests to help doctors assess important functions in the body. Whatever the reason is for you seeing a doctor, a doctor will need information on how your body is functioning.

The basic metabolic panel tests are blood (serum) tests that test for:

  • BUN (blood urea nitrogen) - Measures nitrogen levels in blood.
  • CO2 (carbon dioxide or bicarbonate) - References how lungs and kidneys are functioning.
  • Creatinine - Creatinine levels reports how kidneys are functioning.
  • Glucose - Glucose test checks blood sugar levels—higher or lower than normal glucose levels could indicate range issues.
  • Sodium - This test if sodium concentration is within normal limits. It’s part of your electrolyte panel.
  • Potassium - Potassium levels are tested as a part of the electrolyte panel.
  • Calcium - Testing calcium levels in blood can help determine if there are problems in your bones, kidneys, or nervous system.
  • Chloride - Chloride levels are analyzed as a part of your electrolyte panel.
  • Albumin - Some laboratories include tests for albumin. This tests blood protein levels for kidney and liver diseases.
