Chem 18 (CMP), meaning?

Hi,
    I am in Bangkok having some major dental work done prior to starting tx soon.    While here I thought I'd get some blood work done. My problem is, the term under panels for Chem 18, is used in the US, only. The doctor here could think of 15 items in the panel. So, does anyone know the 18 items that make up this panel? I tried doing a search and got nowhere. I'd phone  my MD except for the time difference.
    ( And for the curious, since I have no insurance, I actual save money flying here. If only they had cheaper tx for hep C also)

I think this is more or less what you're looking for. You might also want to add a complete blood count (CBC) and Thyroid panel as well, not to mention a pre-treatment viral load test.

All the best.

You also might want to add -- Serum Iron, Serum Ferritin and
a Transferrin Saturation (TSAT).

Thanks, that indeed looks like it, or close enough.
