Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP 14)
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) is a group of 14 specific tests designed to provide an overview of the functioning status of our vital organs and body fluid. The CMP is a frequently ordered panel that gives you important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results, or a combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed by you and your health care provider. Test Includes: Alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT); albumin:globulin (A:G) ratio; albumin, serum; alkaline phosphatase, serum; aspartate aminotransferase (AST/SGOT); bilirubin, total; BUN; BUN:creatinine ratio; calcium, serum; carbon dioxide, total; chloride, serum; creatinine, serum; globulin, total; glucose, serum; potassium, serum; protein, total, serum; sodium, serum. This panel requires fasting. Do not eat for 10‐12 hours before taking the panel to ensure its accuracy.
