Latest Basic Metabolic Panel Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)

Flu-related hospitalizations nationwide have risen dramatically in recent weeks, reaching levels historically not seen until much later in flu season, according to data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (NBC News)

Basic Metabolic Panel FAQs

  • What is a BMP blood test?

    A BMP blood test looks at eight distinct components in your blood to see if your body is operating at its best. This test examines your metabolism, energy levels, chemical balance, and organ function. It may be done as part of a standard checkup if you have a chronic condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or renal disease. Your doctor takes a small sample of your blood during a BMP and sends it to the lab for testing and review.

  • What is included in a basic metabolic panel?

    The amounts of eight chemicals in your blood are measured by a BMP. Blood urea nitrogen (BUN), blood glucose, calcium, carbon dioxide, chloride, creatinine, potassium, and sodium are among the parameters examined. If you have abnormal amounts of one or more of these compounds, it could mean you have a major health problem that needs to be addressed.

  • How much do BMP tests cost in Massachusetts?

    The cost of a BMP test in Massachusetts depends on multiple factors, including provider rates, geographical location, and whether your health insurance covers this test. The best way to determine the cost of a BMP is to contact the Massachusetts blood test provider or your health insurance provider to learn more about your benefits.

  • Does insurance cover BMP testing in Massachusetts?

    Many health insurance policies cover BMP testing, especially if your doctor believes it medically necessary. To find out if your health insurance covers BMP testing and to learn more about your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs, contact your Massachusetts provider. Some BMP test providers may be able to verify your insurance coverage on your behalf.

  • Where should I get a basic metabolic panel in Massachusetts?

    A BMP can be done at your doctor's office, a lab, or a hospital in Massachusetts. Many healthcare doctors will refer you to a recognized BMP provider who will administer the test and provide the results to your doctor. You can also utilize Solv to find trusted BMP providers in your area that are highly rated.

  • How long does it take to get BMP blood test results?

    The results of a BMP blood test can take anywhere from a few hours to 24 hours to arrive, depending on lab personnel and production. Some BMP providers in Massachusetts may contact your doctor with the results, which means you may have to wait a few days or weeks for a response. The BMP test provider can usually give you a more precise estimate of how long it will take to receive your findings.

  • What is the normal range for a basic metabolic panel?

    For a BMP, all laboratories and BMP providers have different “normal” value ranges. The following BMP results are usually deemed normal:

    • BUN: 6 to 20 mg/dL
    • Blood glucose: 64 to 100 mg/dL
    • Calcium: 8.5 to 10.2 mg/dL
    • Carbon dioxide: 23 to 29 mmol/L
    • Chloride: 96 to 106 mmol/L
    • Creatinine: 0.8 to 1.2 mg/dL
    • Potassium: 3.7 to 5.2 mEq/L
    • Sodium: 136 to 144 mEq/L
  • Do I need to see a doctor before getting a BMP test in Massachusetts?

    To give a BMP test in Massachusetts, many providers require a doctor's referral. The primary advantage of seeing a doctor first is that you will be able to determine whether or not you require this test based on your symptoms and medical history. A BMP test is frequently done before surgery, in an emergency, or when your doctor needs to diagnose a condition accurately.

  • How can I book a BMP test in Massachusetts through Solv?

    Solv makes it simple to identify local BMP test providers in Massachusetts and schedule an appointment for the same day. Enter “Basic Metabolic Panel” and your location into the provider search field on our website. Solv will offer you a list of nearby BMP providers as well as their contact information so you can make an appointment right away.

  • Can I do at home BMP testing in Massachusetts?

    Some BMP tests can be purchased online, but the majority of them must be taken to a lab or hospital to be given by a medical practitioner. BMP test samples are typically tested and assessed in medical laboratories. Individual components of a BMP test, such as the blood glucose test, may, nevertheless, be able to be measured at home. For additional information about at-home BMP testing, contact your healthcare professional.

About BMP Testing in Massachusetts

A BMP test measures the levels of eight components in your blood, which doctors might use to see if you have one or more significant medical issues. BMP blood tests are frequently done as part of a normal medical examination. BMP tests may also be ordered if you are receiving emergency medical care or if you have been diagnosed with and are being treated for a chronic illness.

Body functions and processes that can be checked using a BMP test include:

  • Metabolism
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Blood calcium level
  • Kidney function
  • Blood acid and base balance
  • Lung function
  • Fluid and electrolyte balance
  • Cell, blood, and tissue health
  • Organ health and function

A BMP test necessitates a fast of eight to twelve hours. You should also tell your doctor about any medications or nutritional supplements you're taking, as some of them may affect your results.

Because the BMP test necessitates a blood draw, it normally only takes a few minutes. A needle is usually used to obtain a blood sample from your arm. To make your veins more swollen and visible, the doctor or lab technician will clean your skin at the injection site and attach an elastic band over that area (typically the arm). The blood sample will then be taken using a fine needle and deposited into one or more vials. The elastic will be removed by the doctor or lab technician.

You may feel a little discomfort and slight soreness at the injection site during a BMP test, but this normally goes away within a few minutes or hours. When your results are ready, your doctor will contact you to discuss them, which could take anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks.

Your Massachusetts doctor may recommend more testing in some cases, especially if any abnormalities are discovered or if your doctor is unable to make a diagnosis. If your BMP test results suggest you have a health condition, your doctor may call you in to discuss your treatment choices.
