• CBC: A complete blood count (CBC) is a blood test used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia. A complete blood count test measures several components and features of your blood, including: Red blood cells, white blood cells, size and types of cells. 
  • CMP: A comprehensive metabolic panel is a blood test that measures your sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. Glucose is a type of sugar your body uses for energy. Electrolytes keep your body’s fluids in balance.
  • Lipid panel: A lipid panel is a blood test that measures lipids-fats and fatty substances used as a source of energy by your body. Lipids include cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL).
  • CRP: A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) test, which is more sensitive than a standard test, also can be used to evaluate your risk of developing coronary artery disease, a condition in which the arteries of your heart are narrowed.
  • Cortisol: A cortisol level test uses a blood sample to measure the level of cortisol present in your blood. Cortisol is a steroid hormone released by the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands sit on top of your kidneys. A cortisol level test may also be called a serum cortisol test.
  • DHEA: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, is a precursor to the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone.
  • Testosterone: Testosterone is produced in the ovaries in women, the testes in men, and the adrenal glands in both genders.
  • Vit D: Vitamin D refers to a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate, and zinc.
  • Vit B12 and folate: Vitamin B12 and folate are used in conjunction to detect deficiencies and to help diagnose the cause of certain anemias, such as pernicious anemia, an autoimmune disease that affects the absorption of B12.
  • TSH: Thyroid stimulating hormone causes the thyroid gland to make two hormones: triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). T3 and T4 help control your body’s metabolism.
  • T3: Main thyroid hormone. Can indicate thyroid disorder
  • T4: Main thyroid hormone. Can indicate thyroid disorder
  • Reverse T3: 3rd most common thyroid hormone
  • TPO: Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies in your blood suggests that the cause of thyroid disease is an autoimmune disorder, such as Hashimoto’s disease or Graves’ disease.
  • TGA: The thyroglobulin test is primarily used as a tumor marker to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment for thyroid cancer and to monitor for recurrence.
  • T3 uptake: The T3RU test measures the level of proteins that carry thyroid hormone in the blood. This can help your health care provider interpret the results of T3 and T4 blood tests.

HgA1C: hemoglobin A1c test tells you your average level of blood sugar over the past 2 to 3 months.
