  • Complete Metabolic Panel (tests fasting blood sugar, electrolyte balance, kidney and liver function)
  • Complete Blood Count (tests red blood count, white blood count, hemoglobin, etc.)

*This is a fasting blood test which means no food or drink for 12 hours prior, EXCEPT water which is encouraged.

Participants may opt to add TSH or PSA tests for an additional $12 for each test. These tests are only available when done in conjunction with the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel. The PSA test checks prostate levels, and the TSH test checks thyroid function.
