Colorectal Cancer Screening: Recommended for men and women age 50 and up. The hemoccult kit is a take-home screening for colorectal cancer.

Homocysteine: This is a screening for abnormally high levels of the amino acid homocysteine in our blood. This can be genetic, or due to a shortage of vitamin B6, B12 and folic acid. Abnormally high levels have been connected with the development of heart disease.

CRP: (C-Reactive Protein) High levels of CRP indicates inflammation occurring in our blood vessels that can lead to heart disease.

CBC: (Complete Blood Count) This screening checks for anemia, infection and other diseases. It is a panel of tests that examines different parts of the blood; white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration and red cell distribution width.

CMP: (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel) This panel of tests provides your physician important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, electrolyte and acid/base balance, blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results may indicate a problem needs to be addressed.

TSH: A thyroid-stimulating hormone, the TSH blood test checks for thyroid gland problems.
