Affordable Metabolism Tests
Results from a comprehensive metabolic panel provide physicians with information necessary to treat unknown medical conditions. A leading reason why so many people choose to use our affordable metabolism test services is to learn why they are gaining weight or why they cannot lose weight. When your metabolism is not working properly, the ability to maintain a healthy weight can be difficult and frustrating.
What Is Involved with a Blood Test for Metabolism?
A comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is comprised of 14 different blood tests. Each test evaluates levels of certain chemicals in the bloodstream, such as glucose, sodium, potassium, and blood urea nitrogen. In addition to information about metabolism, a comprehensive metabolic panel can detect problems with kidney and liver functioning, electrolyte balance, and fluid levels.
Abnormal results may require additional blood tests as ordered by a physician. We also have CBC complete blood count tests available to buy online if your doctor wants more blood work completed to accurately diagnose your health problems.
Get a tTG Blood Test Online
If a CMP indicates blood sugar is too high or too low, a doctor may recommend getting a tTG blood test to determine if a gluten allergy is interfering with insulin release. A tissue transglutaminase IgA antibody test (tTG blood test) determines if someone has celiac disease, a condition where the immune system responds negatively to foods containing gluten. You can buy a tTG blood test online at Discounted Labs today if you frequently suffer bloating, gas, abdominal cramping, and hives after eating glutenous foods.
When a tTG test does not show a gluten allergy, you can also order an allergy test online from Discounted Labs to find out what may be causing symptoms of a food allergy.
Metabolism Test for Weight Loss
Doctors often suggest individuals serious about starting a hormone replacement or weight loss program get a blood test for metabolism before beginning the program. For example, prediabetes is an asymptomatic condition that interferes with cells using glucose for energy. Prediabetes and diabetes can prevent cells from oxidizing calories for energy and allow unused calories to form fat deposits.
The kidneys and liver are the body's primary filtering organs. Unless they are working properly, substances harmful to your body can build up and slow down metabolism. A comprehensive metabolic panel also evaluates electrolyte and protein levels in the body. Low electrolyte levels indicate dehydration. The amount of protein in your body is also important to measure. Protein is responsible with a wide variety of bodily functions and processes including building cells, repairing muscle tissue, transportation of hemoglobin, etc.
Although it's rare for people nowadays to have a protein deficiency, this can be an issue which results in muscle wasting. This process involves breaking down muscle tissue until the health of the individual is seriously deteriorated. Having too much protein in the bloodstream is also quite unusual, and it can show up as indigestion, abdominal discomfort, bloating, and other similar issues.
In addition to metabolic disorders, hormonal imbalances may be the cause of many women's health issues, including difficulty in losing weight. Learn more about our cheap lab tests for women who suspect their weight gain is due to low estrogen and progesterone.
