About Our Comprehensive Male Wellness Panel
The Comprehensive Male Wellness Panel provides the ultimate in health and nutritional screening and includes 24 important measurements. This panel gives a look into overall health, as well as the health of organs and systems like the thyroid, liver, kidneys, and immune system. It screens for vitamin and mineral deficiencies and hormone levels also.
The Comprehensive Male Wellness Panel includes checking and measuring:
- Lipid Panel
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
- Comprehensive Urinalysis, Routine With Microscopic Examination on Positives
- Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential
- Thyroid Profile With TSH
- Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT)
- Hemoglobin A1c
- C-Reactive Protein (CRP), High Sensitivity (Cardiac Risk Assessment)
- Growth Hormone (GH)
- Total Testosterone
- Vitamin A
- Beta Carotene (carotene)
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Folic Acid (Folate)
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy
- Vitamin E
The Lipid Panel is used to measure overall cholesterol levels in the body. Lipids are various forms of fat in the body and include cholesterol types. Higher levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, also known as "bad cholesterol") are associated with increased risk of heart attack.
High levels of LDL leads to atherosclerosis, a hardening of the veins that leads to plaque build-up and heart attacks.
This lipid panel measures levels of:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL - "Good Cholesterol"
- LDL - "Bad Cholesterol"
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) measures blood sugar (glucose) levels, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function.
The 14 measurements included in the CMP help to provide a look at the overall health of the body and its metabolism and chemical balance, and can help diagnose certain conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, and hypertension. The CMP aids in determining how the liver and kidneys are functioning and where glucose, calcium, protein, sodium, potassium, and chloride levels stand.
The CMP blood test panel measures levels of:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide (Bicarbonate)
- Total bilirubin
- Total protein
- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)
- Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
In addition to the previous 14 measurements, the CMP also includes these calculated measurements:
- BUN/Creatinine Ratio (calculated)
- Albumin/Globulin Ratio (calculated)
- Globulin (calculated)
Our Urinalysis with macro- and microscopic examination is a 12-panel test that examines a urine sample and analyzes numerous levels and elements within the urine including:
- The urine sample's color
- Specific gravity
- Protein levels
- Occult blood
- Leukocyte esterase
A urinalysis is important in assessing the chemical constituents in the urine and the relationship to various disease states. Microscopic examination helps to detect the presence of abnormal urine cells and formed elements. A urinalysis can detect abnormalities of urine, help diagnose and manage renal diseases, urinary tract infection, urinary tract neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases adjacent to the urinary tract.
The Complete Blood Count (CBC) with differential and platelets test helps to give an overall view of general health and screens for a broad scope of diseases and conditions. This test includes testing for 10 kinds of cells and cell molecules in the blood:
- Hematocrit - The number of red blood cells in the blood.
- Hemoglobin - A protein that transports oxygen or carbon dioxide in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) - Measures the average volume of red blood cells in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) - The amount of hemoglobin per red blood cell.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) - The amount of hemoglobin concentration in a given volume of red blood cells.
- Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) - Measures the difference of red blood cell size or volume in a blood sample.
- Percentage and Absolute Differential Counts - Measures the amounts of different white blood cell types within the blood.
- Platelet Count - Measures the number of platelets (fragments and particles of cells) in the blood that are crucial for blood clotting.
- Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) - Measures the amounts of red blood cells in the blood. Red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body.
- White Blood Cell Count (WBC) - Measures the amount of white blood cells in the blood. White blood cells defend the body against infections and foreign bodies.
Our Thyroid Test Panel with TSH includes measuring the following:
- T3 uptake (Triiodothyronine)
- T4 (Thyroxine)
- T7 (Free-T4 Index)
- TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
The thyroid is an endocrine gland that not only controls metabolism, but also secretes hormones that are necessary for growth, development, and nearly every physiological process in the body.
The Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) test, measures ALT, an enzyme in the blood, to help determine liver disease or damage.
The Hemoglobin A1c (glycohemoglobin or glycated hemoglobin) test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the past 8-12 weeks.
The C-Reactive Protein (CRP) High Sensitivity test is used to assess heart attack and/or stroke risk in individuals. CRP is a protein created by the liver. Increased CRP levels are found in inflammatory conditions and this high sensitivity version of the CRP test detects these protein levels with a greater sensitivity than the standard CRP test. The correlation between CRP levels and heart health provides insight into an individual's stroke and heart attack risk despite normal or average cholesterol levels.
The Human Growth Hormone (HGH), also known as Growth Hormone (GH), test measures levels of hGH, a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. Measurement of GH is primarily of interest in the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of inappropriate growth hormone secretion.
The Total Testosterone test is used to measure levels of testosterone, the main sex hormone in men that is responsible for male physical characteristics. This testosterone blood test measures the total amount testosterone that is bound to proteins in the blood.
The Vitamin A (Retinol) test measures levels of vitamin A, an essential nutrient required for healthy vision, skin growth and integrity, bone formation, immune function, and embryonic development. Vitamin A is required to produce photoreceptors in the eyes and to maintain the lining of the surface of the eyes and other mucous membranes. Deficiencies may occur in individuals with digestive disorders like celiac disease or irritable bowel syndrome. Retinol is absorbed from animal sources like eggs, fish, and liver.
The Beta-Carotene (Carotene) test measures levels of Carotene, a fat-soluble nutrient that is a precursor to vitamin A. Therefore, a beta-carotene deficiency may lead to a vitamin A deficiency. Beta-carotene is the form of vitamin A that is derived from plant sources.
The Vitamin B1 test measures levels of vitamin B1, which is also called thiamine. Vitamin B1 has a wide spectrum of uses including metabolic reactions and forming adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an energy source every cell type in the body uses. Deficiencies may occur in individuals with digestive disorders like celiac disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
The Vitamin B6 test measures levels of vitamin B6, which is involved in the process of making serotonin and norepinephrine, chemicals that transmit signals in the brain. It is also involved in the formation of myelin, a fatty protein layer that forms around nerve cells. Deficiencies may occur in individuals with digestive disorders like celiac disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
The Vitamin B12 test measures levels of vitamin B12, also known as Cobalamin. B12 plays an important role in the normal functioning of the central nervous system, metabolism, and the formation of red blood cells. Deficiencies may occur in individuals with digestive disorders like celiac disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
The Folic Acid test measures levels of folic acid (folate). Folic acid is a B vitamin that plays an important role in DNA synthesis and producing red blood cells. Folic acid is absorbed through the small intestine and stored in the liver and must be ingested through diet since it cannot be made by the body itself.
The Vitamin C test measures levels of vitamin C, which plays an important role in the growth and repair of body tissues including repairing maintaining cartilage, bones and teeth, healing wounds and forming scar tissue, and aids in making skin, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels.
The Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy (Calcidiol) test measures levels of Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy in the blood for deficiencies. The major function of vitamin D in humans is the maintenance of calcium homeostasis.
The Vitamin E test measures levels of vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin and antioxidant that has a wide spectrum of health uses. Vitamin E is considered an antioxidant.
Since this panel includes a B6 test, lipid panel and a blood glucose test in the CMP, patients should fast 9-12 hours prior to collection.
