 Albumin
 Albumin is a protein made by the liver. A serum albumin test measures the amount of this protein in the clear liquid portion of the blood.
 
 ALP
 Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is a protein found in all body tissues. Tissues with higher amounts of ALP include the liver, bile ducts, and bone.
 
 ALT
 Alanine transaminase (ALT) is an enzyme found in the highest amounts in the liver. Injury to the liver results in release of the substance into the blood.
 
 AST
 AST (aspartate aminotransferase) is an enzyme found in high amounts in liver, heart, and muscle cells. It is also found in lesser amounts in other tissues.
 
 BUN
 BUN stands for blood urea nitrogen. Urea nitrogen is what forms when protein breaks down.
 
 Calcium
 About half of the calcium in the blood is attached to proteins, mainly albumin. For this reason, the calcium blood test can be misleading, and sometimes needs tests to confirm the result.
 
 Chloride
 Chloride is a type of electrolyte. It works with other electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, and carbon dioxide (CO2). These substances help keep the proper balance of body fluids and maintain the body's acid-base balance.
 
 CO2
 Most of the CO2 is in the form of a substance called bicarbonate (HCO3-). Therefore, the CO2 blood test is really a measure of your blood bicarbonate level.
 
 Creatinine
 Measures the level of creatinine in the blood. This test is done to see how well your kidneys work.
 
 Glucose
 Measures the amount of a sugar called glucose in a sample of your blood.
 
 Potassium
 Measures the amount of potassium in the fluid portion (serum) of the blood. Potassium (K+) helps nerves and muscles communicate. It also helps move nutrients into cells and waste products out of cells.
 
 Sodium
 Measures the amount of sodium in the blood.
 
 TotalBilirubin
 Bilirubin is a yellowish pigment found in bile, a fluid made by the liver. A small amount of older red blood cells are replaced by new blood cells every day. Bilirubin is left after these older blood cells are removed. The liver helps break down bilirubin so that it can be removed from the body in the stool.
 
 TotalProtein
 Measures the total amount of two classes of proteins found in the fluid portion of your blood. These are albumin and globulin.
