Part Descriptions

LP15778-1   Parathyrin.intact
Parathyrin intact (iPTH) levels are requested for the differential diagnosis of calcium-related abnormalities. The test is useful for diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism, secondary hyperparathyroidism, and differential diagnosis of hypercalcemia. Because there are many fragments of PTH, tests for PTH may measure one or more of the fragments. None of the assays for intact PTH measure PTH (35-84), which is actually the fragment of PTH present in highest amounts in blood. Many intact PTH assays measure either PTH (1-84) or PTH (7-84). In most people, PTH (7-84) is present in much lower amounts than PTH (1-84), so this is not a concern. But in kidney failure, PTH (7-84) levels increase compared to PTH (1-84), and sometimes over half of what is measured as PTH represents this N-terminal truncated fragment. Some intact PTH assays do not measure this fragment and will give lower PTH results when increased PTH (7-84) is present.

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 In contrast to “Body fld”, the System “Asp” in LOINC represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst.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.
