Five Important Medical Tests You Need To Take

Julie Chen, MD, in To Your Health, suggests these top five tests to see if you are generally healthy:
  • comprehensive metabolic panel--a blood test to assess electrolyte and mineral levels, and liver and kidney function
  • complete blood count--checks platelets, red and white blood cells
  • lipid panel--checks cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • fasting glucose level--checks sugar levels
  • thyroid panel--TSH levels for thyroid function, sometimes T3 and T4 also
These tests monitor your health status, and if you are taking any vitamins or medications, are recommended on a yearly basis.
