This Mood and Energy Panel analyzes several of the most common energy and mood-altering components all at once, giving you peace of mind and the opportunity to address the issue(s) at hand without playing an expensive and difficult guessing game to pinpoint the problem on your own. Unexplained changes in mood or energy level can be caused by a number of bodily changes at the molecular level including hormonal imbalances and vitamin deficiencies. Once your results are in, your physician will be able to suggest a proper course of action to get you back to your regular self.

The Mood & Energy Panel is comprised of the following tests:

How Does Our Mood and Energy Panel Work?

The process is straightforward if you want to purchase the Mood and Energy Panel with Priority Lab Testing. First, buy the panel through our easy-to-use website. Once you have purchased your mood and energy panel, you can make plans to stop by any of our 4,000 locations to provide a blood sample.

When you come in for your test, a lab team member will draw your blood, and you will be able to go about your day in just a few minutes. We do not require you to make an appointment which gives you the flexibility to decide when it is a good time for you to come in. Keep in mind that while an appointment is not necessary, the Mood and Energy Panel does require some preparation on your part.

Does the Mood and Energy Panel Require Special Preparation?

Yes. You must fast for eight hours before you come in for the blood draw. You cannot eat or drink anything except water during your fast period. The easiest approach for many individuals and the recommendation of our lab is that you complete the test in the morning.

Signs You May Have a Condition Affecting Your Mood or Energy

Your mood and energy significantly affect your mental and emotional wellness, impacting your overall well-being. If you are suffering from a condition affecting your mood or energy, you may be experiencing some uncomfortable symptoms. While your first thought may be that your condition is psychologically or emotionally rooted, it could be health-related and something that requires medical treatment and attention to get the help you need.

Common symptoms you may experience when you have a mood or energy health issue include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Feeling short of breath
  • Feeling weak
  • Mouth ulcers or sores
  • Feeling irritable
  • Feelings of sadness
  • Loss of motivation
  • Anxiety
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty sleeping

What Will a Mood and Energy Panel Look For?

The Mood and Energy Panel with Priority Lab Testing is a blood test comprising of six tests in one. The panel examines various body components most commonly linked to mood or energy deficiencies or disorders. The test includes a CBC to analyze the general factors of your blood and a test to measure your TSH1, total iron binding capacity, essential vitamins2 D and B-12, and folic acid levels. Abnormalities in any of these tests can give you insight into what is causing your mood and energy problems.

How to Interpret Your Mood and Energy Panel Results

At some point in the 24-72 hours following your visit to the lab to provide a blood sample, you will receive a message that your results are ready. While you may be concerned about understanding your Mood and Energy Panel, reading the results is simple. Each of the results for the six tests will be grouped separately, as each test could have multiple components and factors.

As you read the test results, you will see a column showing your results alongside the reference range column that you can use to compare. If any of your results are abnormal in any way, the test will indicate in which manner, such as specifying high or low as part of your results.  

Mood and Energy Panel versus Standard Health Panel

A mood and energy panel focuses on tests that could identify a health problem specifically affecting your mood but does not test your overall general health. If you are looking for a more in-depth look at all aspects of your health, consider also adding a Standard Health Panel to your purchase.


  • Your mood and energy affect every part of your day. From the moment you wake up to your work, relationships, and favorite activities. When you are not feeling your best, it can be a frustrating time. Many people may be surprised to find out that the cause of their lower energy and fluctuating mood is a physical health issue.

  • Anyone experiencing trouble with their mood and energy should first look to testing themselves for possible medical conditions that may be at the root of the problems through a blood test.

  • Absolutely. If any results show a potential deficiency or problem causing your mood and energy issues, a visit to your doctor can help you get further testing or imaging, if necessary, as well as a treatment plan that can hopefully bring you relief.
