A Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) is a blood test that assesses overall health and organ function. It includes tests for glucose (blood sugar), electrolytes (sodium, potassium, etc.), kidney function (BUN, creatinine), liver function (ALT, AST, ALP, bilirubin), protein levels (total protein, albumin, globulin), and calcium.

Sample type:  Blood
Preparation:  Overnight fasting is required for this panel (10-12 hours without food).

Price: $37


The CMP provides valuable information about metabolic status and can help identify conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disorders, and more. It is commonly used in routine checkups and diagnostic evaluations. Interpreting results requires consideration of the individual’s overall health and clinical context. The common components of CMP includes:

Glucose: This measures the blood sugar level and helps in assessing diabetes and other conditions related to glucose metabolism.

Electrolytes (Sodium, Potassium, Carbon Dioxide, Chloride): These minerals help regulate various bodily functions, including nerve function and fluid balance.

Kidney Function Tests (Blood Urea Nitrogen – BUN, Creatinine): These tests evaluate how well the kidneys are functioning and can indicate conditions such as kidney disease or dehydration.

Liver Function Tests (Alanine Aminotransferase – ALT, Aspartate Aminotransferase – AST, Alkaline Phosphatase – ALP, Bilirubin): These tests assess the health of the liver and can indicate conditions such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, or liver damage.

Protein Levels (Total Protein, Albumin, Globulin): These measurements provide information about the body’s protein balance and can indicate conditions such as malnutrition or liver disease.

Calcium: This mineral is essential for various bodily functions, including bone health and muscle function.
