A multitude of biochemical compounds are continually produced, secreted, and excreted by the body’s individual tissues and organs. Any one of these compounds can be tested from the blood or urine and the results used to determine the function of the relevant organ. Blood sugar, potassium, liver function tests, protein, and cholesterol are examples of blood chemistries. Urine tests can assess kidney function. Literally dozens of possible tests exist, however, only some are appropriate to be measured for a particular condition.
At KNC, we use our local Valley Labs to run the standard blood panels. For other specialized tests, we refer to a multitude of accredited laboratories in Canada and the United States.
