Basic Metabolic Panel
Test panel

A Basic Metabolic Panel, or BMP, is made up of an assortment of blood tests that are specific to kidney failure, acid/base balance, lung failure, and complications from diabetes. The results of these eight separate tests help your doctor to diagnose these conditions and to monitor how well you are responding to treatment. See each of the eight tests listed below for specific information and normal blood levels.
