Additional Blood Tests
C-reactive protein (hs-CRP)
C-reactive protein is a test that measures the amount of a protein in the blood that signals acute inflammation. C-reactive protein assay, is available to determine a person's risk for heart disease. Many consider a high CRP level to be a positive risk factor for heart disease. However, is not known whether CRP is merely a sign of cardiovascular disease or whether it actually plays a role in causing cardiovascular problems.
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Complete Blood Count is a detailed measure of the different types of blood cells in the body. It consists of several different numbers, including a white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelet counts.
The A1c test is used primarily to gauge diabetes and can be used to diagnose Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. A1c is a percentage of red blood cells that are “glycated”, a term used to describe when red blood cells become coated in sugar. This number indicates an average for the past 3 months so it is especially useful in evaluating the effectiveness of diabetic treatment plans for those who have already been diagnosed with diabetes.
A Thyroid Panel is most useful for determining if an individual has either hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). The panel includes Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Thyroxine (total or free T4), and Triiodothyronine (total or free T3).
The main role of vitamin D is the help regulate the levels of other minerals and vitamins in the body, such as calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. It is essential for the growth and health of bones. Vitamin D deficiency can result in diseases like rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
PSA, or Prostate Specific Antigen, is a protein that is produced by the prostate gland. All men should have a small amount of this protein in their blood serum; however, higher levels of PSA have been linked to prostate cancer, as well as other conditions.
Includes iron, liver, and kidney function.
