Test panel components

  • Hemoglobin A1C is a test that shows what your average blood sugar (glucose level) was over the past two to three months.
  • Complete Blood Count or a CBC measures many different parts and features of your blood (i.e. RBC, WBC, platelets, hemoglobin, hematocrit).
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMET) measures 14 different substances in your blood. It provides important information about your body’s chemical balance and metabolism.
  • Lipid (LIPID) measures the level of lipoprotein in your blood. A high level of lipoprotein may mean you have a high risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) measures the level of PSA in a sample of your blood. PSA is a protein made by your prostate. 
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) test measures the level of TSH hormone. TSH levels that are too low or high may be a sign of a thyroid problem.
  • Vitamin D (VITD) measures the level of vitamin D in your blood. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and teeth.
