The Nutrient Panel Blood Test measures a combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that can impact health, including vitamins A, B12 and C, folate, 25-hydroxyvitamin D, selenium, zinc, CoQ10 and red blood cell magnesium.
This panel includes the following test:
- Complete Blood Count: also known as a full blood count of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets, the concentration of hemoglobin, and the hematocrit.
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel: Sodium, Potasium,chlorine,Glycemia,Bun,creatrine, Co2, Total Protein, Albumin,Globulin,ALT,AST,ALP,Total Bilirrubin.
- Vitamin B12: The body needs this B vitamin to make blood cells and to maintain a healthy nervous system.
- Iron and TIBC (total iron-binding capacity): measures the total amount of iron that can be bound by proteins in the blood.: This test measures the total capacity of the blood to transport iron, and the amount of stored iron in the body. Testing may also help differentiate various causes of anemia.
- Folate: test measures the amount of folate in the blood. Folate is one of many B vitamins. The body needs folate for normal growth and to make red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), and platelets. Folate also is important for the normal development of a baby (fetus).
- Vitamin D: is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, magnesium, and phosphate, and many other biological effects. In humans.
- Vitamin C: is a water-soluble vitamin found in citrus and other fruits and vegetables, also sold as a dietary supplement and as a topical 'serum' ingredient to treat melasma and wrinkles on the face.
- Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) Deficiency : Primary coenzyme Q10 deficiency is a disorder that can affect many parts of the body, especially the brain, muscles, and kidneys. As its name suggests, the disorder involves a shortage (deficiency) of a substance called coenzyme Q10.
- Zinc: is a chemical element with the symbol Zn and atomic number 30. Zinc is a slightly brittle metal at room temperature and has a shiny-greyish appearance when oxidation is removed. It is the first element in group 12 of the periodic table.
- Ferritin: is a blood protein that contains iron. A ferritin test helps your doctor understand how much iron your body stores.
- Homocysteine: test measures the amount of homocysteine in a sample of your blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid. Amino acids are molecules that your body uses to make proteins.
