Sedimentation Rate (ESR)

Only $29

 
 
DLS Regular Price: $44

Fasting Required:No

Specimen: Blood

Results: 1-2 Business Days

Description: Also known as Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR)

Used to help detect inflammation in your body. This can be useful in diagnosing conditions that cause inflammation, such as autoimmune diseases, cancers, and infections. A sed rate test isn't a stand-alone diagnostic tool, but it may help your doctor diagnose or monitor the progress of an inflammatory disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus.


General Health Panel

Only $34

 

DLS Regular Price:
$49

Fasting Required: Yes, 10-12 Hours

Specimen: Blood

Results: 1-2 Business Days

Includes: Complete Metabolic Panel plus CBC's

Description:
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.
CBC: Used as a broad screening test to check for such disorders as anemia, infection, and many other diseases. It is actually a panel of tests that examines different parts of the blood.



C-Reactive Protien, (CRP) hs

Only $34

 
DLS Regular Price: $45

Fasting Required:No

Specimen: Blood

Results: 2-3 Business Days

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.


Vitamin D, 25 Hydroxy

Only $44

 

DLS Regular Price:
$59

Fasting Required: Preferred, but not required

Specimen: Blood

Results: 4-5 Business Days

Description: Vitamin D is also known as the "sunshine vitamin" because the body manufactures the vitamin after being exposed to sunshine. Needed for strong bones and teeth, Vitamin D helps your body absorb the amount of calcium it needs. It also has other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation. There are associations between low Vitamin D levels and peripheral vascular disease, certain cancers, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's disease.


Arthritis Panel

Only $99

 
DLS Regular Price: $197

Fasting Required:Yes, 10-12 Hours

Specimen: Blood

Results: 2-3 Business Days

Includes: C-Reactive Protein Qualitative, Rheumatoid Factor, ANA Direct, Uric Acid, Sedimentation Rate, Complete Metabolic Panel and Complete Blood Count

C-Reactive Protein Qualitative: Used as a test for inflammatory diseases, infections, and neoplastic diseases. CRP is a more sensitive, rapidly responding indicator than ESR. CRP may be used to detect early postoperative wound infection and to follow therapeutic response to anti-inflammatory agents. Progressive increases correlate with increases of inflammation/injury.
Rheumatoid Factor: The test for rheumatoid factor (RA) is used to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis. The test may also be used to help diagnose an arthritis-related condition called Sjögren’s syndrome. About 80% to 90% of patients with this syndrome have high amounts of RA in their blood.
ANA: Antinuclear Antibodies, is used to help diagnose systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and drug-induced lupus, but may also be positive in cases of scleroderma, Sjögren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s disease, juvenile chronic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, and many other autoimmune and non-autoimmune diseases. For this reason, SLE, which is commonly known as lupus, can be tricky to diagnose correctly. Because the ANA test result may be positive in a number of these other diseases, additional testing can help to establish a diagnosis of SLE. Your doctor may run other tests that are considered subsets of the general ANA test and that are used in conjunction with patient symptoms and clinical history to rule out a diagnosis of other autoimmune diseases.
Uric Acid: The uric acid test is used to learn whether the body might be breaking down cells too quickly or not getting rid of uric acid quickly enough. The test also is used to monitor levels of uric acid when a patient has had chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
Sedimentation Rate: A blood test which is used to screen for inflammation, cancer, and infection. A high sedimentation rate is found in a wide variety of infectious, inflammatory, and malignant diseases - the presence of an abnormality which needs further evaluation.
CMP-14: A broad screening test used to evaluate organ function and electrolyte balance as well as aid in the diagnosis of conditions such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease. This test is also useful for people receiving treatment for conditions which affect the liver or kidneys.
Includes:
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.
Glomerular Filtration (eGFR)—Provides an assessment of the filtering capacity of the kidney.
Sodium—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—Similar to sodium, it helps to maintain the body's electrolyte balance.
Carbon Dioxide, Total—Used to help detect, evaluate, and monitor electrolyte imbalances.
Calcium-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.
Protein, Total—Together with albumin, it is a measure of the state of nutrition in the body.
Globulin, Total—A major group of proteins in the blood comprising the infection fighting antibodies.  
Albumin—Serum one of the major proteins in the blood and a reflection of the general state of nutrition.
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—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.
Complete Blood Count (CBC)- Used as a broad screening test to check for such disorders as anemia, infection, and many other diseases.
