Clinical Chemistry


Clinical chemistry is a diagnostic method which tests for various components of blood and urine and enables healthcare professionals to overview significance of abnormal values. Typical clinical chemistry tests may include e.g. blood glucose (testing for the risk for diabetes or hypoglycemia), electrolytes (e.g. indication of certain metabolic and kidney disorders), enzymes (assessment of specific organ function or damage), hormones (gland function check), lipids (evaluation of heart and liver disease), other metabolic substances, and proteins (e.g. assessment of metabolic or nutritional disorder).
