The Basic Check-Up is the perfect panel to see how your overall health is doing. The panel consists of 6 blood tests that are typically ordered by a physician during annual physical examination.
Most important, this is a good panel to establish your “baseline.” Your baseline consists of all the numeric test results (levels) including your blood counts, kidney function, liver function, electrolytes, total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL, and thyroid function values. By knowing these levels, you can begin to manage your own health to see if they fluctuate over time.
With the Basic Check-Up, you’ll get a good look at your overall health through a variety of medical tests including:
Complete Blood Count (CBC) – Tests for blood disorders such as leukemia, anemia, and blood clotting.
Chemistry Panel – Includes 16 essential tests which give information about glucose levels, electrolytes, and kidney and liver functions.
Lipid Panel – Analyzes your cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL and HDL levels. Results can be used to determine your risk for coronary artery disease or stroke.
Urinalysis – Tests your urine for substances that can indicate metabolic problems or kidney disorders.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone – Analyzes thyroid function and signs of hyper- and hypothyroidism.
Blood Pressure – Checks your levels.
Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women.
