Complete Blood Count (CBC)

A complete blood count (CBC) is a very common test that can be done as part of a routine health exam. It can help to evaluate your general health and diagnose various conditions, from infection and anemia to cancer.

Complete blood count (CBC) measures several components and features: red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), platelets, hemoglobin, hematocrit and others. CBC with differential also evaluates the number of neutrophils, lymphocytes, eosinophils, basophils, and monocytes. Reference ranges for children may be different than those for adults.

The complete blood count interpretation is done by doctors. But you can enter your lab test results online to better understand your medical information. Our CBC calculator is free.

Urinalysis (UA)

Urine test (urine analysis, urinalysis, UA) is an important screening and diagnostic tool. It can be made as part of an annual physical exam. Urinalysis helps to find certain illnesses, for example kidney disease, liver disease and diabetes.

The urine specimen is evaluated in three ways: visual exam, chemical exam/urine dipstick, and microscopic exam. Interpretation of urinalysis results: the urine test includes the following components: protein, urine pH, white blood cells (WBC), specific gravity, glucose (sugar), ketones, bilirubin, red blood cells (RBC), casts, mucus, bacteria, yeast (fungi) in urine, epithelial cells.

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)

The comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is also called chemistry panel, chemistry screen. Comprehensive metabolic panel gives information about electrolytes levels in the body, fluid balance, helps evaluate kidney and liver function, glucose (sugar) level in the blood.

The CMP usually includes the following blood tests: glucose (sugar) (GLU), calcium, liver tests (alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), bilirubin (BIL)), kidney tests (blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine (Crea, Cr)), proteins (total protein (TP), albumin), electrolytes (sodium, chloride, potassium, carbon dioxide (CO2, bicarbonate)).

The basic metabolic panel (BMP or CHEM-7) is a simpler version of the comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP). BMP doesn't include liver tests and blood proteins. CMP interpretation online helps better understand your tests.

Thyroid Function Tests (TFTs)

Thyroid function tests (TFTs) are used to diagnose and monitor thyroid disorders (hypothyroidis, hyperthyroidism). The thyroid is a gland located in the neck. Thyroid function tests (or thyroid panel) usually include thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine (T4),and triiodothyronine (T3).

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is made by the pituitary gland and controls the work of the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is the main hormone of the thyroid gland. Within cells T4 is converted to the triiodothyronine (T3). In general, low TSH levels may indicate hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid), and high TSH levels may indicate hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid).

Interpretation of thyroid function test results can help you better understand lab test results. The reference interval varies with age. There are different reference ranges for pregnant women.

Fasting Blood Glucose Test

A fasting blood glucose (FBG) test (fasting blood sugar test) measures the amount of glucose in your blood. It is done after a period of fasting, usually of eight hours before the test. You can't eat or drink anything except water. High blood sugar may indicate prediabetes, diabetes, and gestational diabetes.

Genetics

Genes are the main units of heredity. They are made of DNA and are part of a larger structure called the chromosome. Genes contain information that determines which traits are inherited from parents.
