Use The Cardiac Risk Panel includes markers that provide an overall picture of cardiac (heart), hepatic (liver), and renal (kidney) metabolic status and function. The white count in the CBC indicates whether inflammatory processes or response to infection are at play, hemoglobin/hematocrit indicate if iron levels and red blood cell production are sufficient for delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues. The components of the CMP (e.g., glucose, bilirubin/AST/ALT, electrolytes, and albumin) can be used to diagnose or monitor diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, and hypertension. Total cholesterol, LDL-C, HDL-C and triglycerides all can be used to help determine an individual’s risk of heart disease and to monitor treatment (e.g., statins).
