BMP Blood Test - More Information
The basic metabolic panel test, also known as a BMP test and BMP blood test, measures the basic metabolic panel in the blood.
The BMP test provides a snapshot of important electrolytes, kidney function and the glucose blood level. Similar to the more advanced CMP test, the BMP test is an important test used for general lab screening, checking for electrolyte imbalances and screening for diabetes and kidney function. Specifically, the basic metabolic panel test includes the sodium test, potassium test, chloride test, bicarbonate test, BUN test, creatinine test, glucose test and the calcium test.
