The Chempanel, also known as the Complete Metabolic Panel, is a set of 25 tests ordered to determine a patients general health status. This chemistry panel is often used in yearly physicals and for monitoring existing disease. This set of tests can determine the functioning of your kidneys, and liver. It also checks for parathryoid, diabetic Status, fluid balance, and electrolyte level. At Healthstyles Southwest we recommend our patients fast for 8 hours before the testing is conducted. Water is encouraged and patients should take medication normally.
