Part Descriptions

LP15761-7   Oxalate
Oxalate is an organic dicarboxylate that can be found in oxalic acid, soluble salt, or insoluble salt forms. Oxalate may be consumed in certain foods, or produced within the body by the kidney, liver, epithelial, or apocrine cells. Humans cannot fully metabolize oxalate, rather bacteria within the gut must break it down. Oxalate can combine with calcium to form calcium oxalate (CaOx), which accumulates to form microcalcified crystals and kidney stones. Further studies have shown that the microcalcified crystals can lead to breast cancer or other cancerous tumors if left untreated. [PMID:26493452 ] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP7238-1   Body fld
The LOINC "Body fld" System represents body fluids other than serum, plasma, blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. When a LOINC term with the System "Body fld" is used, the specific specimen source or body fluid type should be reported elsewhere with the result. Where more specific terms for pleural, peritoneal, synovial fluid, etc. exist, we encourage you to use the more specific terms. In contrast to “Body fld”, the System “Asp” in LOINC represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. “Asp” is used for abnormal fluid collections that are aspirated, while “Body fld” is used for named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, that are not inherently pathologic.
