Electrolytes (Na+, K+, CA2+) - Identifying imbalances is critical in the evaluation of various illnesses. These tests are especially important in evaluation vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration and cardiac symptoms.
Alanine Aminotranaferase (ALT) - Increasedlevels of this enzyme may be a sign of liver disease
Albumin (ALB) - Reduced levels of this protein may be an indication of chronic liver, kidney disease, or parasitic infection.
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) - Found in liver, bone, kidney, and intestines. Elevated levels of this enzyme may indicate organ disease.
Amylase (AMY) - The pancreas produces and secretes amylase to aid in digestion. Elevated blood levels may indicate pancreatic and/or kidney disease.
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) - This enzyme offers a good indication of muscle and liver health.
Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) - BUN is produced by the liver and excreted by the kidneys. Testing for it helps detect liver and kidney abnormalities.
Cholesterol (CHOL) - Elevated levels of cholesterol may be an indication of a variety of disorders including hypothyroidism, liver, and kidney disease.
Creatinine (CREA) - Elevated levels of creatinine may indicate kidney disease or urinary obstruction
Globulin (GLOB) - These liver proteins are found in the blood and provide a good indication of liver function.
Glucose (GLU) - High levels of blood glucose may indicate diabetes or stress. Low levels may be signs of liver disease.
Phosphorus (PHOS) - Elevated levels may indicate kidney disease.
Total Bilirubin (TBIL) - Bilirubin, a component of bile, is secreted by the liver into the intestinal tract. Blood bilirubin levels are helpful in evaluating liver disease and certain anemias.
Total Protein (TP) - Total protein aids in diagnosis of many conditions including liver, kidney, and gastrointestinal disease.
Thyroxine Test (T4) - T4 fluctuation may indicate thyroid disease or secondary liver, kidney, or metabolic abnormalities.
