Product Description

This panel is used to determine if the individual has lactic acidosis.

Lactic acid is a byproduct of cellular metabolism and may be found in excess when cells lack oxygen. High levels indicate that lactate levels are accumulating in the body and may indicate improper organ function due to a lack of oxygen. Further testing is needed as this panel is only a first indicator. Buildup may occur due to a lack of oxygen or a greater demand due to other areas of the body that present problematic issues.

  • CBC
