Physicians often want to know the glucose and lipid levels in a patient's blood and whether proteins are present in a patient's urine. What might this information show about an individuals health?
Proteins in urine indicate a malfunction in the kidneys, and further testing is needed.
Glucose levels in blood indicate your ability to metabolize and process glucose, abnormal levels indicate a pancreas problem, or diabetes.
Lipids can indicate a highly fatty diet, causing clogged arteries. Abnormal levels can reflect a liver functioning, or even pancreas problem.
