    Tests included in health profiles
    Most tests cannot be ordered individually

    CBC: Complete Blood Count with Differential

    CBC is one of the most common blood tests performed. CBC testing looks at your body’s red and white blood cells and checks for diseases and disorders, such as anemia and other infections.

    CMP: Comprehensive Metabolic Panel

    This broad screening tool evaluates organ functions and checks for certain conditions, such as diabetes and liver and kidney disease. CMP measures blood sugar, electrolyte and fluid balance, and kidney and liver function. This panel of 14 tests looks at glucose, calcium, albumin, total protein, sodium, potassium, carbon dioxide, chloride, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, ALP (alkaline phosphatase), ALT (alanine amino transferase), AST (aspartate amino transferase), and bilirubin.

    Lipid Panel

    A lipid panel is a group of tests that detects the risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke. It can also guide the treatment of a patient who has cardiac issues. The lipid panel tests for low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), triglycerides, and total cholesterol.

    Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a valuable diagnostic tool that screens for metabolic and kidney disorders by detecting substances such as protein or glucose in the urine. Urinalysis can also uncover a urinary tract infection (UTI). For best results, provide your urine sample early in the morning.

    PSA: Prostate Cancer

    The PSA test measures the amount of prostate‐specific antigen found in a man’s blood. Rising or changing PSA levels may signal prostate problems, including cancer. This test is appropriate for men 50-69 or those over 40 with risk factors, such as African American men or men whose fathers, brothers, or sons have had prostate cancer. For more information on PSA testing, please visit the cancer.gov website.

    Thyroid Screen (TSH)

    The thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) test is a blood test that detects thyroid problems. Abnormal levels of TSH may indicate thyroid disorders, such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.

  • Digestive Health Screening

    Celiac Disease Panel
    Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects several parts of the body and can lead to other illnesses. Blood tests are used to identify high risk for celiac disease. This screening includes tests for tissue transglutaminase IgA, as well as other tests as appropriate. To be accurate, these tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.

  • Heart Health Screening

    High Sensitivity CRP
    This blood test helps evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes. It measures low levels of C-reactive protein that can cause inflammation of the arteries. The results can help you make decisions about lowering your risk.

    Lipid Panel
    A lipid panel is a group of tests that detects the risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke. It can also guide the treatment of a patient who has cardiac issues. The lipid panel tests for low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), triglycerides, and total cholesterol.

  • Hepatitis C Screening

    Hepatitis C Antibody Screen with Reflex to PCR
    The hepatitis C test is used to screen for and diagnose a hepatitis C infection, and also to monitor treatment. It’s recommended if you’ve been exposed to the virus or if you have symptoms of liver disease. This test looks for hepatitis C antibodies in the blood. For more information on testing recommendations for hepatitis C, please visit the federal Centers for Disease Control website.

  • Immunity Screening

    Chickenpox (VZV)
    Chickenpox and shingles are caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), a member of the herpes virus family. This test reliably measures immunity due to previous infection, but may not be sensitive enough to detect antibodies induced by vaccination. Thus, a negative result in a vaccinated individual does not necessarily indicate susceptibility to VZV infection.

    Hepatitis B Antibody Immunity Panel
    This blood test detects “markers” that identify different phases of a hepatitis B infection, and whether the infection is acute or chronic. The test also shows if you’re immune to the hepatitis B virus, or susceptible to an infection. This panel includes tests for surface antibody, surface antigen, and core antibody.

    Measles/Mumps/Rubella (IgG)
    Measles, mumps, and rubella are contagious viral infections that can be controlled by a single vaccination. This test determines immunity or infection for one or more of these viruses, or whether you are susceptible to one of the viruses.

  • Sexually Transmitted Disease Screening

    For more information on screening recommendations for sexually transmitted infections and HIV, please visit the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

    We strongly recommend discussing your test results with your healthcare provider before making any life-changing decisions.

     

    PANELS

    STD Basic Screen Panel
    The basic panel includes test screens for Gonorrhea/Chlamydia, Syphillis, and HIV.* Refer to individual tests for detailed test descriptions.

    STD Expanded Panel
    In addition to the tests in the Basic Screen panel, the Extended Panel includes test screens for Trichomonas, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV.* Trichomonas is a curable parasitic infection. Hepatitis B and C are viral infections spread through contact with infected blood. It is important to screen for the STDs in the extended panel because you may be infected but have no symptoms.

    STD Pregnancy Panel
    The pregnancy panel includes test screens for five infections: Gonorrhea/Chlamydia, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV.* Recommended for anyone suspecting they may have been exposed to the viruses or is experiencing symptoms. This panel is recommended for women before they become pregnant.

    * HIV tests are only included in STD Panels available in Colorado

     

    INDIVIDUAL TESTS

    Gonorrhea/Chlamydia
    The gonorrhea/chlamydia test screens for both gonorrhea and chlamydia infections. Testing is generally done simultaneously since the two conditions can have similar symptoms. A definitive diagnosis is important because the two infections require different antibiotic treatment.

    Herpes Simplex 1 & 2 Antibody IgG
    Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease caused by herpes simplex type 1 (HSV-1) or herpes simplex type 2 (HSV-2). This test detects herpes antibodies, which indicate exposure to the herpes virus. For people with active lesions, direct detection of virus by either culture, PCR, or DFA is preferred.

    HIV 1/2 4th Gen Reflex Only available in Colorado
    This blood test detects the presence of HIV antigens and antibodies, to help determine if you have an HIV infection. This test is recommended if you think you’ve been exposed to the virus, or before you become pregnant.

    RPR with Reflex to Titer (Syphilis)
    Rapid plasma reagin (RPR) is a blood test used to screen for syphilis. It detects antibodies commonly found in infected patients. It’s used to screen people who have symptoms of sexually transmitted infections, and also used to screen pregnant women.

  • Diabetes

    Diabetes Management Panel

    Includes Glucose and Hemoglobin A1c tests

    Diabetes Risk Panel

    Includes Glucose, Hemoglobin A1c, and Lipid Panel tests

    Tests included in diabetes panels
    Most tests cannot be ordered individually

    Glucose

    This test detects your blood’s glucose level to determine if you have low blood glucose (hypoglycemia) or high blood glucose (hyperglycemia). Glucose tests can help determine your risk for diabetes.

    Hemoglobin A1c

    The hemoglobin A1c test detects an increased risk of developing diabetes. It also helps in diabetes treatment by evaluating the average amount of glucose in the blood over the past 2 to 3 months.

    Lipid Panel

    A lipid panel is a group of tests that detects the risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke. It can also guide the treatment of a patient who has cardiac issues. The lipid panel tests for low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), triglycerides, and total cholesterol.

  • Drug Screening

    Urine Drug Screen Panel
    Urine tests detect the presence of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications used in the previous 24-72 hours, depending on the type of drug. This is the same method approved for federally mandated testing, but it is not the officially accepted test.

    This screening panel tests for creatinine, oxidant, pH, specific gravity, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, marijuana metabolite, cocaine metabolite, opiates, and oxycodone.

  • Individual Tests

    Blood Type (ABO, Rg)

    Blood type testing determines your blood group (A, B, AB, or O), and whether you are Rh positive or negative.

    Cholesterol, Total

    This test screens for the risk of heart disease. High blood cholesterol can lead to hardening of arteries, which increases the risk of heart attacks. Cholesterol testing is a routine part of preventive healthcare. For more information on cholesterol testing, please visit the federal Centers for Disease Control website.

    Hemoglobin A1c

    The hemoglobin A1c test detects an increased risk of developing diabetes. It also helps in diabetes treatment by evaluating the average amount of glucose in the blood over the past 2 to 3 months.

    Pregnancy (HCG Qual)

    Qualitative blood pregnancy tests confirm the presence of the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Produced by the placenta, hCG levels increase steadily throughout the first trimester (8-10 weeks) of a normal pregnancy.

    Prostate Cancer (PSA)

    The PSA test measures the amount of prostate‐specific antigen found in a man’s blood. Rising or changing PSA levels may signal prostate problems, including cancer. This test is appropriate for men 50-69 or those over 40 with risk factors, such as African American men or men whose fathers, brothers, or sons have had prostate cancer. For more information on PSA testing, please visit the cancer.gov website.

    Protime/INR

    The Protime/INR test measures how long it takes your blood to clot. It’s used to monitor effects of Warfarin therapy and to study patients with hereditary and acquired clotting disorders.

    Testosterone (male only)

    Testosterone is a hormone that’s important for male sexual and reproductive development. It also helps keep muscles and bones strong. A testosterone test will detect abnormal testosterone levels. This test is for males only.

    Thyroid Screen (TSH)

    The thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) test is a blood test that detects thyroid problems. Abnormal levels of TSH may indicate thyroid disorders, such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.

    Urinalysis

    Urinalysis is a valuable diagnostic tool that screens for metabolic and kidney disorders by detecting substances such as protein or glucose in the urine. Urinalysis can also uncover a urinary tract infection (UTI). For best results, provide your urine sample early in the morning.

    Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy

    Our bodies produce vitamin D after exposure to sunlight or from consuming certain foods and supplements. Vitamin D helps us maintain normal levels of phosphorous, and helps us absorb calcium, which is important to maintaining strong bones, as well as neuromuscular and immune functions. This test measures how much vitamin D is in your body.
