Specializes in Nephrology and Dialysis

A comprehensive chemistry panel will check, bun, creatinine, potassium and co2. It will also check, ast, alt, which are liver enzymes, as well as bilirubin and albumin. The first 4 tests are measures of kidney function and the last 4 are a measure to measure liver function. Additional tests for kidney function as phosphorus and intact pth, other liver function studies are ammonia and ldh.
