A study from the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore, attempted to identify organic gastrointestinal findings among 323 patients with IBS who received an extensive array of tests: complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel
, thyroid function test, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein panel, inflammatory bowel disease panel, hypolactasia (lactase deficiency) genetic assay, celiac disease panel, and colonoscopy with rectosigmoid biopsies.
He recommended that a comprehensive metabolic panel
(including liver and renal function tests), calcium, phosphorous and magnesium levels, CBC, and a prealbumin test should be performed prior to refeeding.
Comprehensive Health Panel, $30 (requires 10 hours fasting) includes complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel
, LIPID, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone and Hgb A1C.
Laboratory testing, including a comprehensive metabolic panel
, complete blood count, and urine toxicology and urinalysis, are negative.
Health maintenance guidelines support a complete blood count and comprehensive metabolic panel
as being sufficient to screen healthy children.
Sherry recommended that physicians obtain a complete blood cell count, an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), a C-reactive protein (CRP) level, a urinalysis, a comprehensive metabolic panel
, and an antinuclear antibody (ANA) titer.
The algorithm has been incorporated into the instrument software to identify short samples by use of reagent discs measuring analytes present in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) comprehensive metabolic panel
(CMP), basic metabolic panel (BMP), and renal function panel (RFP) and, in addition, a specially designated MetLyte 8 panel; the latter is identical to the BMP except that creatine kinase is substituted in place of calcium.
A comprehensive metabolic panel
is now recommended in the work-up of FL and DLCL.
