What is a general wellness panel?
When mild health problems go undetected, they sometimes can lead to serious conditions. A general wellness panel is a series of tests that check to make sure your body's systems are functioning normally. Generally, you should get a panel done once a year during your wellness exam. However, the frequency of visits can vary with age.
A general wellness panel will usually check your:
- Complete blood count
- Fluids, electrolytes and minerals
What should you expect with a general wellness panel?
Finding out the results of your wellness panel is a first step in getting and staying healthy. Your specific results might point toward lifestyle changes to maintain health and wellness.

Your results might also point toward the need for a follow-up visit to a healthcare provider to decide on next steps.
