Full Monty Panel

Original price was: $680.24.Current price is: $253.95.

The Full Monty panel is a comprehensive suite of tests designed to evaluate various nutritional and metabolic parameters. This panel includes assessments of vital minerals, vitamins, and proteins that play crucial roles in numerous bodily functions, including immune response, antioxidant defense, energy production, and red blood cell synthesis.

Collection Method: Blood Draw

Specimen Type: Whole Blood, Serum, and Plasma

Test Preparation: Patient should be fasting for at least 12 hours. Collection should be done in the morning.

Patient should refrain from taking vitamins or mineral herbal supplements for at least one week before sample collection.



When and Why the Full Monty Panel May Be Ordered

Healthcare providers may order the Full Monty panel for individuals experiencing symptoms suggestive of nutritional deficiencies, metabolic disorders, or to assess overall health and wellness. It is particularly useful in diagnosing conditions related to imbalances in essential nutrients or for monitoring the effectiveness of supplementation and dietary interventions.

What the Full Monty Panel Checks For

  • Ceruloplasmin: A protein that binds the majority of copper in the blood and plays a role in iron metabolism. Low levels may indicate copper deficiency or Wilson’s disease, while high levels can be seen in chronic inflammation and certain cancers.
  • Copper Plasma: Essential for various enzymatic reactions and antioxidant defense. Abnormal levels can indicate copper deficiency or toxicity, potentially impacting neurological and immune function.
  • Ferritin: An indicator of the body’s iron stores. Low ferritin levels suggest iron deficiency anemia, while high levels may indicate iron overload or inflammation.
  • Hemoglobin: A protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. Its levels can indicate anemia or polycythemia, affecting oxygen delivery and overall energy levels.
  • Iron and Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC): Measures the amount of iron in the blood and its capacity to bind more iron, crucial for diagnosing iron deficiency or overload.
  • Magnesium RBC: Assesses magnesium levels inside red blood cells, providing a more accurate reflection of body magnesium status. Magnesium is vital for muscle function, nerve transmission, and metabolic processes.
  • QuestAssureD Vitamin D Total with D2 and D3: Measures levels of Vitamin D, essential for bone health, immune function, and inflammation regulation.
  • Transferrin: A protein that transports iron in the blood. Altered levels can indicate iron disorders, liver disease, or malnutrition.
  • Vitamin A: Essential for vision, immune function, and skin health. Both deficiency and excess can have significant health implications.
  • Zinc Plasma: Critical for immune function, wound healing, and DNA synthesis. Zinc deficiency or excess can affect various bodily functions.

Conditions or Diseases the Full Monty Panel Can Check For

The Full Monty panel can identify conditions such as:

  • Nutritional deficiencies (e.g., iron deficiency anemia, vitamin D deficiency)
  • Metabolic disorders (e.g., Wilson’s disease for copper, hemochromatosis for iron)
  • Immune system dysfunctions (e.g., due to zinc, vitamin A, or vitamin D deficiencies)
  • Bone health issues (e.g., osteoporosis related to low vitamin D levels)

Use of the Full Monty Panel Results by Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare professionals analyze the Full Monty panel results to diagnose specific nutritional deficiencies or excesses, understand the underlying causes of symptoms, and guide treatment plans, including dietary recommendations and supplementation. The panel also aids in monitoring the effectiveness of treatment strategies for managing identified deficiencies or metabolic imbalances.

The Full Monty panel offers a thorough assessment of essential nutrients and metabolic markers, providing valuable insights into an individual’s nutritional status and overall health. By evaluating key vitamins, minerals, and proteins, healthcare providers can identify and address various conditions related to nutritional imbalances, enhancing patient care through targeted interventions and lifestyle modifications.
