Metformin Treatment Lab Panel: A Comprehensive Insight 

Metformin is a well-known medication that plays a vital role in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. It has been clinically proven to enhance insulin sensitivity, endothelial function, liver health, cardiovascular protection, cholesterol regulation, weight loss, and inflammation reduction. The Metformin Treatment Lab Panel at DiscountedLabs.com is designed to provide a thorough evaluation for all patients who are to be administered Metformin. Here's a breakdown of each test in this panel, elucidating the essentials of diabetes management:

1. Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14)

  • Overview: CMP-14 encompasses 14 different blood tests serving as an introductory medical screening tool to assess general health.
  • Components: Includes bilirubin (total), BUN, BUN: creatinine ratio, calcium serum, carbon dioxide (total), chloride serum, creatinine serum, eGFR calculation, globulin (total), glucose serum, potassium serum, protein (total, serum), and sodium serum.
  • Purpose: Measures renal function, liver function, electrolyte balance, and fluid balance, offering a broad perspective on metabolic health.

2. Complete Blood Count (CBC)

  • Overview: Among the most widely requested tests for routine checkups and physical examinations.
  • Components: Analyzes red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, hemoglobin, hematocrit, absolute lymphocytes, monocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, and other blood indicators.
  • Purpose: Essential for diagnosing and treating a diverse array of illnesses, emphasizing immunological health.

3. Hemoglobin A1C

  • Overview: A critical component in diabetic management, assessing glucose levels in the bloodstream for the 2-3 months leading up to the test.
  • Insight: Elevated hemoglobin A1c values generally indicate high glucose levels in the blood over the previous 2-3 months, offering valuable information on glycemic health.
  • Importance: Helps in maintaining normal blood sugar levels, reducing associated risks and adverse effects in diabetes patients.

4. Insulin (Fasting)

  • Overview: Measures insulin, vital for transferring glucose into body cells.
  • Insight: Examines the body's primary energy source and the functioning of insulin in regulating blood sugar.
  • Significance: Helps detect erratic blood sugar swings, often associated with diabetes, and understand symptoms like sweating, shaking, and lightheadedness.

5. Vitamin B12

  • Overview: Essential for metabolism, energy, and stress management.
  • Relation with Metformin: Metformin can sometimes reduce Vitamin B12 levels, potentially leading to anemia if the patient is already deficient.
  • Importance: Monitoring Vitamin B12 levels while on Metformin can prevent potential deficiencies and associated complications.
