what is SBS lab test?

I have checked Lab Online - no result found.

What is SBS? (with Hb, CBC, serum electrrolytes, urinalysis, FBS in am)

This is a hypothetical client with diabetes and kidney malfunction.

thanks

Can you call your lab or ordering MD to find out?

Wait, is this one of those case study questions where it says which order to question? Then I say question that one because you are unfamiliar with the abbreviation and can't find another reference to it.
