The very model of the modern laboratory tests!
There's albumin and globulin and aspartate transaminase, and 5' nucleotidase nucleotidase /nu·cleo·ti·dase/ (noo?kle-o-ti´das) an enzyme that catalyzes the cleavage of a nucleotide into a nucleoside and orthophosphate.
n. , gamma glutamyl transpeptidase and lactate dehydrogenase, and alanine transaminases. Phlebotomists, technologists will draw your blood in any case!
And if you are presenting with neurosis of the oddest kind, your docs should check your liver for cirrhosis of the modest kind and look for abnormalities in apolipoprotein and in alpha-fetoprotein and N-terminal procollagen.
They'll check your blood glutamic-oxaloacetic enzymes, too, and protease inhibitor and ceruloplasmin ceruloplasmin /ce·ru·lo·plas·min/ (se-roo?lo-plaz´min) an a2-globulin of plasma believed to function in copper transport and its maintenance at appropriate levels in tissue; levels are decreased in Wilson's disease. , bilirubin, hepatitis A or B or C or D, or all the rest? Add PCR and EIA to standard liver function tests Liver Function Tests Definition

And if you're not infected with an organism microsopic (sorry for my singing of these odious intestine topics), consider all the ova or the larvae or a full-fledged worm! Pinworms, roundworms, ringworms, hookworms, nemotodes have come to term.
As alternate to IgA and IgE activity, electrodermal electrodermal /elec·tro·der·mal/ (e-lek?tro-der´m'l) pertaining to the electrical properties of the skin, especially to changes in its resistance.
adj. screening finds phenolic sensitivities. For all who know that illness may be caused by many kinds of pests, these are the very model of the modern laboratory tests!
