Why Get Tested?

COMPLETE METABOLIC PANEL

To give your health care provider important information about the current status of your kidneys and liver as well as electrolyte and acid/base balance and levels of blood glucose and blood proteins; to monitor known conditions, such ashypertension, and to monitor the use of medications to check for any kidney- or liver-related side effects

As part of a routine health exam; when you are being monitored for a specific condition or are taking medications that may impact your kidney or liver

LIPID PANEL

To assess your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD); to monitor treatment

When to Get Tested?

Screening: for adults, every five years; for youths, once between the ages of 9 and 11 and again between ages 17 and 21
Monitoring: at regular intervals when risk factors are present, when prior results showed high risk levels, and/or to monitor effectiveness of treatment

PSA

To screen men for prostate cancer (although there is currently no consensus about using this test to screen asymptomatic men for prostate cancer), to help determine the necessity for a biopsy of the prostate, to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for prostate cancer, and to detect recurrence of prostate cancer

When to Get Tested?

When a man has symptoms suggestive of prostate cancer such as difficult, painful, and/or frequent urination; may also be ordered during and at regular intervals after prostate cancer treatment. There is continued debate among experts and national organizations over when and how often to order the PSA test to screen asymptomatic men. The frequency of prostate cancer screening is an individual decision that should be determined through discussion with your physician. (For specific details, see prostate cancer screening for Adults and Adults 50 and Up).
