How is it used?

Comprehensive Metabolic evaluation is done using various tools including basic blood test, EKG, body composition analysis and special tests. Most physicians order the comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is used as a broad screening tool to evaluate organ function and check for conditions such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease. Other mentioned tests are done for detailed analysis and planning of the management for preventing many medical conditions. Don’t settle for just basic evaluation, get the detailed evaluation done for optimizing your health.

When is it ordered?

The CMP is routinely ordered as part of a blood work-up for a medical exam or yearly physical. While the individual tests are sensitive, they do not usually tell a health practitioner specifically what is wrong. The detailed metabolic workup is also ordered at the initial visit and then follow up tests may be ordered for periodic evaluation once treatment starts. Any abnormal test may lead to further workup too. This is discussed at length in the lab follow up appointments. We do not just call in that the results are normal or abnormal, but we believe in making you part of the discussion about your health and would like to have one-on-one discussion about the implications, plan and follow ups at the LabFollow visit.
