A comprehensive metabolic panel test (CMP) is a group of 14 blood tests that is performed in order to give an overview on the metabolic status of a patient. The things that are measured in this test include proteins, electrolytes, liver and kidney function tests, glucose and calcium. The CMP can give a lot of information about kidney and liver health, as well as electrolyte disturbances and acid-base imbalances. This is typically used as a broad screening tool at routine medical examinations, as well as to aid in the diagnosis of vague, non-specific symptoms.
This test is performed in following conditions such as:
• Routine medical examination
• Suspected acid-base imbalance
• Suspected kidney or liver disease
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel requires fasting for 9 - 12 hours prior to going in for blood collection.
Estimated Time Taken
1 - 2 working days after collection of specimen.
