Sodium (Na) Potassium (K), Chloride (C) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) ‐ When tested, irregular values in these “electrolytes” can indicate trouble with your body’s salt/water or acid/base balance. Dehydration, vomiting, medications and kidney problems can cause these health issues.

Albumin (Alb), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), Bilirubin (Bil)‐Direct and Total, Aspartate Transaminase (AST); and Alanine Transaminase (ALT) – These are proteins and enzymes found in the blood. Abnormal levels of any of these tests can indicate liver damage or liver disease.

Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN), Calcium (Ca), Creatinine (Cr), Phosphorus and Glucose Testing – These tests check for a range of problems that affect the kidneys, including kidney disease. These also measure the waste in the blood that may affect kidney filtration.
