Diagnostic Blood Tests

Through a partnership with Clinical Reference Laboratory (CRL),  TotalWellness is able to offer a variety of diagnostic blood tests on samples as part of a biometric health screening program. Below are some frequently requested diagnostic tests:

Chem-20

This is a comprehensive metabolic panel that provides an overall picture of the body’s metabolism. Tests include Albumin, Alkaline Phosphates, ALT (SGPT), AST, Bicarbonate (CO2), Total Bilirubin, Calcium, Chloride, Creatinine, Glucose, Potassium, Total Protein, Sodium, and Urea Nitrogen (BUN).

Cancer Antigen 125

Measures the amount of CA-125 protein, possibly an indicator of ovarian cancer cells.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)

TSH measures thyroid gland function, which is related to multiple metabolic disorders.

Cotinine

Our cotinine test, a metabolite of nicotine, checks for the presence or absence of cotinine in the blood. This is a qualitative test with results reported as a positive or negative.

Homocysteine

Homocysteine accurately describes an individual’s risk of atherosclerosis, or fatty build up in the arteries, when used in conjunction with a full lipid panel.

Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C)

HbA1C measures average blood glucose over a three-month period as opposed to a standard blood glucose test, which measures it over the past hour and requires fasting. This is a more accurate means of identifying individuals with, or at risk for, Type II diabetes, as well as monitoring effectiveness of treatment and slowing the progression of long-term diabetic complications.

Highly Sensitive C-Reactive Protein (CRP)

CRP is a substance produced in the blood when inflammation is present. Atherosclerosis, or fatty build up in the arteries, causes inflammation. Therefore, testing the level of CRP present in the blood can aid in the detection of heart disease.

Complete Blood Count

This test helps detect anemia, leukemias, bleeding abnormalities, infection, and more.

Additional screenings are also available, including BMI and physical fitness testing. Results from all of our screenings can be used to complete the health assessment questionnaire.
