- CMP – Comprehensive Metabolic Panel test Calcium, blood glucose, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney health, and liver function.
- CBC - complete blood count test can be used to evaluate overall health, it gives insights into count of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets which will help identify conditions like anemia & infections.
- Thyroid – fatigue is one of the common symptoms of hypothyroidism which is condition where enough thyroid hormone is not produced by the body.
- Hemoglobin A1c – Average sugar for the past 2 to 3 months, this is vital in understanding diabetic conditions. Fatigue is a very common symptom of high blood sugar levels.
- Vitamin B12 – fatigue is a common symptom of vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 is needed to make red blood cells which is instrumental in transporting oxygen to cells.
- Chlamydia, Gonorrhoeae & Syphilis – these are diseases caused by bacterial infections which could lead to miscarriage or have chances of infecting the baby during delivery. They are common STD’s that can be treated with antibiotics.
- HIV – HIV virus causes AIDS, some states require all pregnant women to take this test. Treatment started early could prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child.
- Vitamin B12 – is much needed for blood and nerve cells, low levels could lead to fatigue.
- Vitamin D – regulates phosphorous and calcium in the blood. Lower levels could lead to weak bones. It also helps the immune system.
- hCG – this test can be used to Confirm pregnancy.
- Glucose – checking glucose would help identify diabetic conditions.
- Calcium – is a vital mineral needed for bones and teeth.
- Albumin – is a protein produced by liver, it is tested to evaluate liver and kidney health.
- Total Protein – it measures the total amount of albumin and globulin in the blood. Abnormal level of protein in blood could be indicator of liver or kidney disorder and many other diseases.
- Sodium – is vital for nerve and muscles. An elevated level of sodium could indicate dehydration, kidney disfunction or other medical condition.
- Potassium – helps muscle function, nerve signals and fluid balance.
- CO2 (carbon dioxide, bicarbonate) – helps balance PH of blood.
- Chloride – helps regulate acid-base balance.
- BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) – is a waste from kidneys, its level rises in blood when kidney function decreases.

- MCV – is the measure of average size of blood cells. High levels may be related to alcohol abuse, nutrition, aging and many more. Low levels could mean iron deficiency.
- MCH – mean corpuscular hemoglobin measures average hemoglobin found in red blood cells.
- MCHC – mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration measures average concentration of hemoglobin in RBC, is can be used along with MCV, RBC and RDW counts to diagnose anemia.
- RDW – red cell distribution width test help evaluate the difference is size between smallest and largest RBC. This test is used to identify anemia, heart disease, cancer among many.
- Platelet Count – platelets help stop bleeding. Low platelet count could lead to life threatening bleeding during delivery.
- MPV – help measure average size of platelets. A high number could associate with different types of cancer.
