Kidney & Liver Panel (COMP METAB PNL)

The CMP is used as a broad screening tool to evaluate organ function and check for conditions such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease. The CMP may also be ordered to monitor known conditions, such as hypertension, and to monitor patients taking specific medications for any kidney- or liver-related side effects.

The CMP is routinely ordered as part of a blood work-up for a medical exam or yearly physical.

Special Preparation: None.
