Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) Coming Soon

A comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is a test that measures 14 different substances in your blood. It provides important information about your body's chemical balance and metabolism. Metabolism is the process of how the body uses food and energy. 



A CMP includes tests for the following:​

  • Glucose, a type of sugar and your body's main source of energy.

  • Calcium, one of the body's most important minerals. Calcium is essential for proper functioning of your nerves, muscles, and heart.

  • Sodium, potassium, carbon dioxide, and chloride. These are electrolytes, electrically charged minerals that help control the amount of fluids and the balance of acids and bases in your body.

  • Albumin, a protein made in the liver.

  • Total protein, which measures the total amount of protein in the blood.

  • ALP (alkaline phosphatase), ALT (alanine transaminase), and AST (aspartate aminotransferase). These are different enzymes made by the liver.

  • Bilirubin, a waste product made by the liver.

  • BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and creatinine, waste products removed from your blood by your kidneys.



A CMP is often done as part of a regular checkup. You may also need this test if your health care provider thinks you have liver or kidney disease.



Type of samples to be collected:
Blood (venipuncture—a needle is used to draw blood from a vein)
