In brief: No single lab

the best place is to get a good history and physical exam.
There is not single test for all patients. Based on your history and exam test can be ordered and in some patients no test are needed. An ex is a person with diarrhea that stopped and have no major medical issues all they need is increased fluids. A good conversation with your MD is needed.
