CMP stands for “Comprehensive Metabolic Panel“.
The CMP is a series of blood tests that gives you insight into your body’s chemistry and the way it is using energy. We get our energy from food through a process called metabolism. The biomarkers in this test help us to see how well your liver and kidneys are working. These are the two major organs involved in our body’s metabolism.
Usually CMP’s are part of yearly checkups (together with a CBC – Complete Blood Count).
The CMP includes the following tests:
- ALP (alkaline phosphatase)
- ALT (alanine amino transferase, also called SGPT)
- AST (aspartate amino transferase, also called SGOT)
