Anxiety Lab Testing - More Information
The anxiety test panel, also known as an anxiety blood test panel, measures lab that, when abnormal, might cause anxiety. This anxiety blood test panel includes the CBC test, CMP test, copper test, magnesium test, PTH test, T3 free test, T4 free test, TSH test, vitamin B6 test, vitamin B12 test, vitamin D test and zinc test.
Anxiety is an emotion that is brought about by a concern of a negative event in the future. An important defining aspect of anxiousness, or nervousness, is that the unwanted event is not currently present whereas fear is a response to present threat. Anxiety can be a helpful emotion at times as it helps people anticipate possible adverse events and prepare for them. However, when anxiety leads to inability to perform regular daily functions, it can be debilitating.
While the underlying cause of unwanted, incapacitating anxiety is often unexplained, there are biological causes for anxiety. In these circumstances, correcting the underlying cause can reduce the anxiety level. This anxiety blood test panel was designed to screen for many of those causes and help find correctable biological problems when present. In addition to some basic wellness labs, the anxiety test panel checks important minerals and elements like calcium, copper, magnesium and zinc which, when imbalanced, can cause anxiety. Similarly, specific vitamin deficiencies can lead to correctable causes of anxiety. This anxiety test panel also checks for an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) which is well-known to cause anxiety.
