Clinical Info:

The CMP or comprehensive metabolic panel is a very commonly ordered laboratory test. This test is a profile with 14 components that includes direct analytes and some ratios and other calculations. The test is designed to determine a patients overall general health status and to screen for; or diagnose a variety of conditions and diseases. Abnormal results in any of the components of this profile may warrant additional testing and investigation.

Additional Information:

The comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is used as a broad screening tool to evaluate the health of your patient and to screen for conditions such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease among other possible conditions. The CMP may also be ordered to monitor patients with known conditions, such as high blood pressure (hypertension), and to monitor treatment with specific medications that may affect kidney or liver function and overall chemistry or metabolism.

Sample Collection:

A fasting specimen is requested to obtain a valid fasting glucose. Keep the tube sealed to prevent any shifts in sample carbon dioxide (Co2) levels.
