Generally we know there are 2 kinds of blood tests which BMP (Basic Metabolic Panel), and CBC (complete blood count). That BMP – check to find out the basic functions of metabolism. include: glucose, BUN (Blood urea nitrogen), ALP, Alb, etc. so to know how much glucose in the body that we do not need to test CBC Because generally more expensive and long term, we only need to test whether the BMP to know the level of Our sugar is normal or height so that we can know if we are exposed to the disease diabetes or not, so we can set up sorting and avoid foods that can be dangerous for us. Viewing BUN temporary aims to kidney function, BUN measures the level of nitrogen that is filtered by the kidneys and excreted through urine. Creatine = the waste of energy forms in muscle. CBC testing and the complete examination of data from the platelet to viruses that enter our body. so for example HbG and HCT measurements so hemonglobin and hematocrit measurements are used to examine the possibility of anemia, Hgb level is generally <12 g.

Normal range for Mean corpuscular volume is 80 to 97.
Thyroid test is performed for testing TSH, T3 and T4. The normal range of TSH for adult is 0.4 to 4.5 mili international units per liter. T3 normal range is 0.2 to 0.5 nanograms per deciliter.
