Description

The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel 14 (CMP) is a series of tests that give healthcare providers information about a person’s metabolism and levels of key substances in their blood. This panel of tests includes glucose, electrolytes, kidney and liver function tests. It might be used by a doctor to assess an individual’s health, particularly to help diagnosis conditions that affect the metabolism, such as liver or kidney disease, diabetes, or a hormonal disorder. The CMP measures the levels of calcium, sodium, potassium, carbon dioxide (an acid-base balancing electrolyte), blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase and bilirubin. By measuring these substances, healthcare practitioners are able to diagnose various conditions, evaluate an individual’s overall health and fitness, and assess a patient’s response to treatment. The CMP is an important tool for healthcare providers to help assess a patient’s overall health.
