Parameters We Test For

  • Carbohydrates. Analyzing glucose levels within the body can help to identify and diagnose disorders such as hypoglycemia as well as diabetes.
  • Lipids. Testing lipid levels can aid in the diagnosis of heart disease, liver disease, cardiovascular disease, and other serious conditions.
  • Enzymes. Measuring enzymes can offer information about issues that may be present with specific vital organs. Pancreatic inflammation or carcinoma, liver disorders, and skeletal muscle damage can all be identified by testing enzymes released into the blood.
  • Hormones Analyzing varying hormone levels can indicate whether different glands are functioning properly and help with the diagnosis of issues with the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands.
  • Proteins. Testing protein concentration can provide doctors with information regarding nutritional deficiencies and metabolic disorders as well as shed light on cancer in some cases.
  • Electrolytes. Sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, chloride, and bicarbonate levels are tested to help with the diagnosis of metabolic and kidney disorders.
  • Metabolites. By measuring the levels of nitrogen, creatinine, and urea within a blood sample we can offer insight into how the kidneys are functioning.
  • Urine Drug Screening. By screening for up to 12 drug classes, specimens can be tested with high levels of accuracy not available in dip sticks or cups. These specimens may then be ordered on to NTL’s advanced toxicology department for confirmatory testing.
