This group of tests measures the level of cholesterol, protein, sugar, calcium and electrolytes in the blood.



This group of tests measures blood levels of cholesterol, lipids or fats, protein, sugar, calcium and electrolytes. It may be done as part of a regular checkup or to look for diabetes, liver or kidney disease or other problems.

In an adult, the blood sample is usually taken by placing a needle in a vein in the arm. In a baby or child, the sample may be taken by pricking a finger or heel.

  • You may need to fast for up to eight hours before having this test.
  • This care path's costs do not include the charge to draw blood from a vein (venipuncture).
  • There will only be one charge to draw blood, even if multiple tests are being performed on the samples that are taken.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • What is the reason for the test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, do I need the test?
