Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) Test

$ 49.0

The CMP blood test measures key components for insights on your metabolism, liver and kidneys.

Your metabolism is the life force of all your body’s energy, turning what you eat into the fuel to support vital functions including heart rate, brain function and breathing. A metabolic test can reveal how the pieces involved are working to support your body’s needs. 


This comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) blood test measures essential components in your blood (including sugars, minerals, electrolytes, enzymes and waste products) that contribute to your overall health and provide information on the functioning status of your metabolism, liver and kidneys. When reviewed by your healthcare provider, a CMP test with a clinical examination may help detect certain health conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, liver inflammation or electrolyte imbalances.  


Note: A CMP panel may reveal results that suggest abnormal thyroid function, but it does not directly measure thyroid function. To assess your thyroid function, consider our Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Test or the Thyroid Health Blood Test Package, which also provides TSH results.

What's Tested
  • Chloride

    An electrically charged mineral (electrolyte) that helps regulate fluid and acid-base balance within the body.

  • Globulin, Total

    A measure of a group of proteins that function to help transport nutrients and help the body fight infections.

  • Calcium

    A mineral essential to bone and muscle health.

  • Alkaline Phosphatase

    An enzyme found in the cells of the liver and other tissue.

  • A/G Ratio

    A measure of the amount of albumin present compared to globulin present in the blood. Both albumin and globulin are proteins produced by the liver.  

  • Bilirubin

    A waste product produced by the liver as it breaks down red blood cells.

  • Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN)

    A protein waste product removed from the blood by the kidneys. 

  • Sodium

    An electrically charged mineral (electrolyte) necessary for healthy muscle and nerve function that also helpsmaintain fluid balance.

  • Potassium

    An electrically charged mineral (electrolyte) vital to a cell’s ability to take in nutrients and remove waste; it is also essential for muscle function and regulating fluid balance.

  • Glucose

    The primary type of sugar found in your blood.

  • Total Protein

    The total amount of proteins (including albumin) found in the blood that helps determine overall nutritional status.

  • Albumin

    The main protein that circulates in the blood, which provides tissue nourishment, carries substances (such as hormones and drugs) in the blood, and helps keep fluids within the blood vessels.

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

    A waste product created by the body’s metabolism that helps maintain the body’s acid-base balance (pH) in the form of the electrolyte bicarbonate.

  • Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT)

    An enzyme found mostly in the cells of the liver and kidney.

  • Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST)

    An enzyme found in the cells throughout the body but mostly in the cells of the heart and liver.

  • Creatinine 

    A muscle-produced waste product filtered out by the kidneys.

  • BUN/Creatinine Ratio

    A comparison of BUN levels to creatinine levels, two waste products filtered by the kidneys.

  • Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR)

    A calculation (factored from your serum creatinine level, age, and gender) used to determine your level of kidney function; the higher your eGFR number, the better your kidneys are working; low results may be a sign of kidney disease.

  • A metabolic panel blood test provides insights into your body’s metabolism so you have a clearer understanding of your body’s ability to carry out important functions. Our body converts food and drink into energy through metabolism to fuel body functions such as breathing, digestion, growth, and cell repair, and hormone management. Our comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) measures essential components in your blood such as sugars, minerals, electrolytes, enzymes and waste products. This information is essential for understanding your overall health and assessing the function of your liver and kidneys.

  • A complete blood count (CBC) test measures the amount of red and white blood cells in your body. A CMP test measures various substances in the blood to determine your overall metabolic health.4 Under consultation with your provider, a CMP test may help screen for conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver inflammation or electrolyte imbalances.

  • Healthcare providers typically recommend routine blood tests, such as a CMP test, be performed once a year.4 You should consult with a healthcare provider if you have any questions about your results, or if your results are outside of the standard range.

  • Your testing will be performed in a CLIA-certified clinical laboratory. Labcorp provides leading-edge medical laboratory tests and services through a national network of primary clinical laboratories and specialty testing laboratories. Our labs perform regular quality assurance testing to ensure our results are accurate.

  • Your results will be provided to you through our secure online portal to view or print. Results are also provided to PWNHealth, which provides professional healthcare provider services for OnDemand tests. If you are accessing your results through your Labcorp Patient account, all users linked to the account will have access to all OnDemand test results. Results may also be provided to a local, state, or federal health authority, but only when legally required. For example, many states require the testing laboratory and healthcare provider to report test results for certain communicable diseases, such as sexually transmitted diseases or COVID-19, to local or state health departments.
