Men’s Health Panel
Checks all main aspects of a man’s health to give a snapshot of overall well-being and detect areas for potential monitoring. Includes male-specific prostate testing, as well as adult-targeted cholesterol screening.
Special instructions: Requires patient to fast for 12 hours prior to testing.
- 🔘 CBC (Complete Blood Count): A panel of tests that measures blood cells, platelets, hemoglobin, and hematocrit values. All values are taken into consideration and measured against the “normal” range of healthy blood cell levels. Tests for bleeding disorders, infections, and several other disorders. Often used for disease detection and medication/treatment monitoring.
- 🔘 Chemistry 23: Provides a snapshot of overall health and well-being. Can help detect several different disorders, with a focus on liver, kidney, and heart health.
- 🔘 Lipid Panel Measures lipid (HDL, LDL, VLDL): levels to determine overall cholesterol levels and status.
- 🔘 PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen): Tests blood for a glycoprotein (PSA). Presence of this PSA is often an early indicator of prostate cancer or tumors. This test is regularly used to monitor men at increased risk for prostate cancer and assist in early detection.
- 🔘 TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone): Monitors and detects thyroid problems. Can detect disorders that include hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, and help determine when physician intervention may be recommended.
- 🔘 UA (Urinalysis): Looks at several different factors to determine overall well-being, and detect kidney problems, diabetes, and urinary bladder disease. Test factors include: color/appearance, bilirubin, glucose, ketones, leukocyte esterase, nitrite, occult blood, pH, protein, sediment examination, and urobilinogen.
