I just got a lab req yesterday for blood test for a physical. I'm looking at it right now. The doctor just checked off a bunch of different things. Under the section called 'chemistry' there's a big list of things. I asked him to make sure I got nutrient tests as well beyond fasting glucose and cholesterol. He was going to do it anyways. So I have sodium, potassium, chloride, urea, creatine, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. There's a bunch of others that I have no idea what they are... GGT, ALT, AST and uric acid. A routine urinalysis as well.
He also put down a CRP test which is something to do with reactive proteins and a TSH which has to do with thyroid function.
