CBC Test or Complete Blood Count With Differential is a test used to measure blood abnormalities, it is one of the most common tests used to monitor overall health status.
CBC measures certain blood cells such as Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells, and Platelets and seeks to explain a variety of conditions and/or diseases such as Anemia, Leukemia, and infections -among others- and check symptoms such as fatigue, weakness or bruising.
CMP Test or Comprehensive Metabolic Panel Blood Test is an initial broad screening tool used to evaluate organ function and electrolyte balance, it also aids in the determination of certain conditions such as diabetes, liver disease and kidney disease or for monitoring treatments related to liver and kidney.
CMP is usually ordered as part of a routine health check.

• Liver function (ALP, ALT, AST, Bilirubin)
• Kidney function (BUN, Creatinine)
• Electrolytes and fluid balance (Sodium, Potassium, Carbon Dioxide, Chloride)
• Proteins (Albumin, Total Protein)
• Blood Sugar (Glucose)
Lipid Panel Test measures fats and fatty substances which are used by your body as a source of energy. Lipids include cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Lipids are found in your blood and stored in tissues.
High cholesterol usually has no signs or symptoms so the test helps in the evaluation of heart disease and also monitors existing conditions, genetic diseases and the effectiveness of certain treatments.
Lipid Panel Test includes: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides.
The urinalysis test helps diagnose any urinary tract infections and other kidney conditions such as urinary bladder disease, kidney disease and diabetes.
UA is a common test that is done in 3 ways: visually, dipstick and microscopic and each check for different aspects, i.e.: change in color, acidity, concentration, protein, sugar, ketones, bilirubin, infection, occult blood, white and red blood cells, epithelial cells and others.
PSA test or Prostate Specific Antigen Test screens the level of the PSA protein produced by the Prostate gland and is used as a marker for early detection of Prostate cancer and for an enlarged or inflamed prostate. High levels of PSA may indicate these conditions.
The PSA test is often recommended to be taken on a yearly basis for men over the age of 50 or earlier if there is a family history of prostate cancer.
When the PSA Test is high it is is highly recommended that you take the "PSA : Free and Total" test as a follow up.
Early detection is an important tool in getting appropriate and timely treatment.
Please consult with your Doctor or Urologist if your levels of PSA are elevated.
