Description

The Basic Lab Panel includes a fasting glucose, insulin, hsCRP, hemoglobin A1C, C-peptide, adiponectin, leptin, triglycerides, and HDL cholesterol. Specifically, it provides insight into metabolism, including health of the kidneys, blood glucose level, and electrolyte and acid/base balance. Abnormal results, and especially combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed.

Sample Test

Includes:

  • Glucose – snapshot of blood sugar at time of blood draw
  • Insulin – correlates to the efficiency with which a person can metabolize carbohydrates; high fasting levels indicate insulin resistance and possible pre-diabetes
  • hsCRP – excellent measure of inflammation in the body
  • Hemoglobin A1C – long term (2-3 months) marker of glycemic control; also considered a marker of accelerated aging
  • C-peptide – a measure of endogenous insulin production; useful in distinguishing between type 1 and type 2 diabetes
  • Adiponectin – a hormone that ezymatically controls metabolism; high levels beneficial and indicate efficient cellular energy production
  • Leptin – called the “satiety” hormone because it regulates the appetite centers in the brain to decrease hunger; chronically high levels linked to obesity and can indicate leptin resistance (dysfunctional appetite regulation)
  • Triglycerides – the most common type of fat in the body
  • HDL Cholesterol – also called the “good cholesterol”

Turnaround time for results is about three weeks from time blood sample is received.
