Hemoglobin A1c (HgbA1c) With EAG

Only $29

 
DLS Regular Price: $39

Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Blood

Results: 1-2 Business Days

Test Description: This non-fasting test, also known as A1c, HbA1c, or Glycated hemoglobin, indicates how well you have controlled your diabetes over the last few months. Even though you may have some very high or very low blood glucose values, Hemoglobin A1C will give you a picture of the average amount of glucose in your blood over that time period. While the Hemoglobin A1C is the standard tool to determine blood sugar control for patients with diabetes, it is not a substitute for daily, routine blood glucose testing.


C-Reactive Protein, (CRP,hs)

Only $34

 
DLS Regular Price: $45

Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Blood

Results: 2-3 Business Days

Test Description: CRP, hs  is a critical component of the immune system and can be predictive of future risk of heart attack, stroke, sudden cardiac death, and the development of peripheral arterial disease. Individuals with elevated levels of CRP have a risk about 2 to 3 times higher than the risk of those with low levels.

Diabetes Package

Only $44

 
DLS Regular Price: $72

Fasting Required: Yes, 10-12 Hours

Specimen: Blood

Results: 1-3 Business Days

Tests Included: Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) & Hemoglobin A1c

CMP-14: The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) is a frequently ordered group of 14 laboratory tests that gives important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results, and especially combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed.

HgA1C: This non-fasting test, also known as A1c, HbA1c, Glycohemoglobin, or Glycated hemoglobin, indicates how well you have controlled your diabetes over the last few months. Even though you may have some very high or very low blood glucose values, Hemoglobin A1C will give you a picture of the average amount of glucose in your blood over that time period. While the Hemoglobin A1C is the standard tool to determine blood sugar control for patients with diabetes, it is not a substitute for daily, routine blood glucose testing.


Kidney Profile, Extended

Only $89

 
DLS Regular Price: $129

Fasting Required: Yes, 10-12 Hours

Specimen: Blood & Urine

Results: 1-2 Business Days

Tests Included: CMP-14, Complete Blood Count (CBC), Lipid Panel, Parathyroid Hormone (PTH), Intact and Urinalysis

Glucose: Blood sugar level, the most direct single test to uncover diabetes, may be used not only to identify diabetes, but also to evaluate how one controls the disease.
Bun (Urea Nitrogen): Another by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys. BUN is an indicator of kidney function.
Creatinine, Serum: An indicator of kidney function Bun/Creatinine Ratio—Calculated by dividing the BUN by the Creatinine
Sodium, Serum: One of the major salts in the body fluid, sodium is important in the body's water balance and the electrical activity of nerves and muscles.
Potassium: Helps to control the nerves and muscles
Chloride, Serum: Similar to sodium, it helps to maintain the body's electrolyte balance
Calcium, Serum: A mineral essential for development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. It is important also for the normal function of muscles, nerves and blood clotting.
eGFR:Every day, healthy kidneys filter about 200 quarts of blood and produce about 2 quarts of urine. The glomerular filtration rate refers to the amount of blood that is filtered by the kidneys per minute. When kidney function declines due to damage or disease, the filtration rate decreases and waste products begin to accumulate in the blood.
Protein, Total Serum: Together with albumin, it is a measure of the state of nutrition in the body.
Albumin, Serum: Serum one of the major proteins in the blood and a reflection of the general state of nutrition
Globulin, Total: A major group of proteins in the blood comprising the infection fighting antibodies
Albumin/Globulin Ratio: Calculated by dividing the albumin by the globulin
Bilirubin, Total: A chemical involved with liver functions. High concentrations may result in jaundice.
Alkaline Phosphatase, S: A body protein important in diagnosing proper bone and liver functions. 
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT): An enzyme found in skeletal and heart muscle, liver and other organs. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT): An enzyme found primarily in the liver. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
 

Cholesterol, Total
:
A sterol in the blood. Knowing your cholesterol may be as important as knowing your blood pressure. Elevated cholesterol is associated with an increasing risk of coronary heart disease.
HDL: Cholesterol High-density lipoproteins are believed to take cholesterol away from cells and transport it back to the liver for processing or removal. They have become known as the "good" cholesterol as persons with high levels of HDL may have less heart disease. Low HDL could be the result of smoking and lack of exercise.
VLDL: Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL) is one of three major lipoprotein particles. The other two are high density lipoprotein (HDL) and low density lipoprotein (LDL). Each one of these particles contains a mixture of cholesterol, protein, and triglycerides, but in varying amounts unique to each type of particle.
LDL: Cholesterol Low-density lipoproteins contain the greatest percentage of cholesterol and may be responsible for depositing cholesterol on the artery walls. For that reason, they are known as the "bad" cholesterol.
Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio: Calculated by dividing the total cholesterol by the HDL cholesterol. Ratio used by physicians in determining your relative risk for developing cardiovascular disease.
Triglycerides: Triglycerides are fat in the blood responsible for providing energy to the cells of the body. Triglycerides should be less than 400 mg/dl even in a non-fasting state.

WBC—White blood cells are the body's primary defense against disease. White blood cells help fight infection.
RBC—Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen to and carbon dioxide away from all cells. Iron deficiency will lower RBC.
Hemoglobin—A chemical compound inside red cells that transports oxygen through the blood stream to all cells of the body. Oxygen is needed for healthy organs. Hemoglobin gives the red color to blood.
Hematocrit—Hematocrit measures the amount of space red blood cells take up in the blood. It is reported as a percentage.
Lymphocytes—The results of this and basophils, eosinophils, monocytes and neutrophils deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body's defense against infection. Also important in the assessment of nutritional status.
Monocytes—The results of this and basophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes, and neutrophils deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body's defense against infection. Also important in the assessment of nutritional status.
MCH Mean—Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (abbreviated as MCH) is an estimate of the amount of hemoglobin in an average red blood cell.
MCHC Mean—Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (abbreviated as MCHC) is an estimate of the concentration (amount) of hemoglobin in a given number of packed red blood cells.
MCV Mean—Average amount of space occupied by each red blood cell. Red blood cells help carry oxygen in the blood.
Neutrophils—The results of this and basophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body's defense against infection and also important in the assessment of nutritional status.
Platelets—Blood cell particles involved with the forming of blood clots.
RDW—Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a calculation of the variation in the size of your RBC's. In some anemias, such as pernicious anemia, the amount of variation (anisocytosis) in RBC size (along with variation in shape – poikilocytosis) causes an increase in the RDW.

PTH, Intact: PTH(Parathyroid Hormone)is responsible for the regulation of serum calcium levels. It works in three ways to help raise blood calcium levels back to normal: Takes calcium from the body's bones, stimulates the activation of vitamin D in the kidney, and suppresses the excretion of calcium in the urine while encouraging excretion of phosphorus. PTH levels will vary during the day, peaking at about 2 a.m. Drugs that may increase PTH levels include phosphates, anticonvulsants, steroids, isoniazid, lithium, and rifampin.

Urinalysis, Complete:
useful in the evaluation of conditions such as urinary tract infection, dehydration, and kidney stones. Urinalysis Includes: Color, appearance, specific gravity, pH, protein, glucose, occult blood, ketones, leukocyte esterase, nitrite, bilirubin, urobilinogen, and microscopic examination of urine sediment.
